With “The Lone Wolf Agenda,” Joseph Badal steps back into the world of international espionage and military action thrillers and crafts a story that is as close to the real world of spies and soldiers as a reader can find.
This fourth book in the Danforth Saga brings Bob Danforth out of retirement to hunt down lone wolf terrorists hell bent on destroying America’s oil infrastructure. Badal weaves just enough technology into his story to wow even the most a-technical reader.
“The Lone Wolf Agenda” pairs Danforth with his son Michael, a senior DELTA Force officer, as they combat an OPEC-supported terrorist group allied with a Mexican drug cartel. This story is an epic adventure that will chill readers as they discover that nothing, no matter how diabolical, is impossible.I loved this book! It took me a minute to get into it but after the first few pages, it was non stop action and I never knew if they were going to catch this nutcase that wanted to blow things and people up! You will love all the different angles of this story. It is not just about one man, there are several key characters and they build on that to make this book exciting.
There was a little political cover up going on also but it added to the suspense and the unknown. I wasn't sure if the bad guy in the White House would get ousted until the end but so glad that he did. It's a great heart pounding story about our DELTA men and women in action.
