Product Description

The chance to work with an old flame turns lethal when the legal writers assigned to Code 13 turn up dead.  Far from backing off, Caroline McCormick volunteers to take over the project in hopes of catching the killer…unless she’s killed first.  Drones…military strategy…and suspense up and down the East Coast make this a thriller that’s not for the faint-of-heart.  This is the second saga in Don Brown’s Navy Jag Series.

Publisher's Description

THE U.S. NAVY’S BILLION-DOLLAR CONTRACT FOR THE SALE OF DRONES LANDS TWO NAVY JAG OFFICERS IN THE GUN SIGHTS OF A KILLER.

 Caroline is just getting her feet wet at the prestigious Code 13, but is thankful for at least one familiar face—her old flame, P.J. MacDonald. He loops her into the assignment he is currently working on—the legality of a proposed drone-sharing contract with Homeland Security that would allow the sale of drones for domestic surveillance. The contractor wants a legal opinion clearing the contract for congressional approval. But the mob wants the proposal dead-on-arrival.

 

When P.J. is gunned down in cold blood and a second JAG officer is killed, one thing becomes clear: whoever is ordered to write the legal opinion on the drones becomes a target. Which is exactly why Caroline goes to her commanding officer and volunteers to write the legal opinion herself. She is determined to avenge P.J.’s death and trap the killer, even if that means making herself a target.

It is a deadly game of Russian roulette for the sake of justice, but Caroline is determined to see it through, even if it costs her life.

Author Bio

Don Brown is the author of Thunder in the Morning Calm, The Malacca Conspiracy, The Navy Justice Series, and The Black Sea Affair, a submarine thriller that predicted the 2008 shooting war between Russia and Georgia. Don served five years in the U.S. Navy as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps, which gave him an exceptional vantage point into both the Navy and the inner workings "inside-the-beltway" as an action officer assigned to the Pentagon. He left active duty in 1992 to pursue private practice, but remained on inactive status through 1999, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He and his family live in North Carolina, where he pursues his passion for penning novels about the Navy. www.donbrownbooks.com Facebook: Don-Brown

    Don Brown is one of my favorite authors, and I have enjoyed his fictional naval novels. It took me a while to get into this one though (probably just me). I read a few chapters and let the book sit for a few weeks before I picked it up. However, once I got back into it, it picked up and I got pulled into the story that soon had non-stop action, drama, and suspense. I should have read the back cover a little better so I wouldn't have gotten too attached to one certain character, so I was bummed out about that part.

    Brown does a great job go showing what most likely goes on behind the scenes when a bill is coming up before Congress with the special interest groups, threats, blackmail, deals, and more. Although the people and situations were fictional, it is a bit disconcerting to realize some of that stuff actually goes on behind the scenes.

    I also learned more about the 4th amendment and privacy laws, and how different things affect that amendment and freedom. Brown wrote in such a way that left me wavering between the issue at hand in the book: drones used by the government.

    I liked the characters in the book, and there were a couple of surprises about them that I did not see coming. Once I got into the book, I didn't want to put it down, and finished it in my car before work this morning. It was a great and entertaining read, and educational in addition.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Don Brown in his new book, Code 13″ Book Two in the Navy JAG Series published by Zondervan gives us an adventure with Lieutenant Commander Caroline McCormick.

    From the back cover: THE U.S. NAVYS BILLION-DOLLAR CONTRACT FOR THE SALE OF DRONES LANDS TWO NAVY JAG OFFICERS IN THE GUN SIGHTS OF A KILLER.

    Caroline is just getting her feet wet at the prestigious Code 13, but is thankful for at least one familiar faceher old flame, P.J. MacDonald. He loops her into the assignment he is currently working onthe legality of a proposed drone-sharing contract with Homeland Security that would allow the sale of drones for domestic surveillance. The contractor wants a legal opinion clearing the contract for congressional approval. But the mob wants the proposal dead-on-arrival.

    When P.J. is gunned down in cold blood and a second JAG officer is killed, one thing becomes clear: whoever is ordered to write the legal opinion on the drones becomes a target. Which is exactly why Caroline goes to her commanding officer and volunteers to write the legal opinion herself. She is determined to avenge P.J.s death and trap the killer, even if that means making herself a target.

    It is a deadly game of Russian roulette for the sake of justice, but Caroline is determined to see it through, even if it costs her life.

    All I can say is that Don Brown keeps getting better and better and this story is his best yet. There is the Drone Project that Code 13, which is a department within JAG, has been assigned to decide if it is legal or not. There are two teams of very powerful bad guys. One bad guy team doesnt want this Project passed and, of course, the other team does want it passed while the one that doesnt is willing to kill. Caroline not only wants to make the decision she wants to catch the murderers. Here is what I recommend: eat dinner early, go to the bathroom, make your popcorn and turn off all your phones. You are not going to want to be disturbed while you are reading and you will want to finish the book before you go to bed. Don Brown knows how to write a perfect thriller. The action flies in this book and the suspense builds and builds with each page. All I can say is that you will be riveted as you flip pages as fast as you can read. You will not be disappointed. I recommend this book with enthusiasm!

    I was interested in reading this book, as we have just started watching "JAG" via streaming. I found out this is actually book 2, but it didn't seem to matter that I missed the first one in the series. I liked the book - it has a lot of action in it, and things I didn't know before - the Constitution Free Zone.

    What I didn't care for, is that it is presumably a "Christian" book, but you really couldn't tell it was Christian. It is more of a secular book. It has drinking, smoking, adultery (not explicit, but mentioned a few times), and homosexuality. I know this happens - but I just don't want to read about it in a Christian book. If you told me this was a secular book, I would give it a 5. But, as a Christian book, I have to give it a 2.

    Sometimes when reading other reviews after I finish the novel myself can be confusing, exasperating or fun. Don Browns latest novel for me was par excellence! Dons personal knowledge and experiences while in the Navy show through each novel as well as his understanding of events of the past or present. In Code 13, expect to become engaged and staying there once you start the book.

    I admire those who served and serve in the military and I enjoy suspense novels, which are just two of the elements in Code 13. As I read I continued to wonder if how the Pentagon was described in the story was in any way reflective of how the building really is or was. The part of the novel that is central to the book is how a JAG brief will be written in support for or against the use of drones over land 100 miles inside America. I wish I could know what elements of the Constitutional areas in contention in the JAG office actually are real and what elements are not. There were parts of the story that brought a lump in my throat and occasionally I would laugh at how Don had one or two of the characters talk about something.

    The brief has to deal with the possible ramifications of the 4th Amendment. While that makes for an interesting tidbit, there are also two opposing parties who desire different outcomes of the brief. When I got towards the end of the novel, I was amazed at how it was shaping up to conclude. I never saw the final twist in the plot, which took my breath away!

    My condolences to the author who was working on the novel when his mother passed away; I love how he dedicates the novel in her memory. If youre looking for a suspense-filled, blood-pumping, action-filled novel, look no further because here it is! I wonder what the author has up his sleeve for the next JAG thriller.

    In Code 13, Don Brown returns his readers to the fascinating world of the illustrious JAG corps. Caroline McCormick receives new orders that transfer her to a prized position with Code 13 in Washington, D.C. She is eager to join her former boyfriend, P.J. MacDonald, on a series of assignments as a fellow JAG officer. He shares with Caroline about his latest project, one in which he must determine the legality of a drone project shared between the Navy and Homeland Security. However, P.J. is killed be a mysterious sniper before he can finish his legal opinion, soon followed by the death of another JAG colleague who also happened to be working on the project. Caroline volunteers to take on the project, even as it places her at the center of opposing forces willing to kill to ensure that their interests in the project are preserved.

    Mr. Brown captures the best elements of Christian suspense in this high-stakes military drama. With guest appearances of several characters from his previous books, fans will be thrilled with this addition to the Navy JAG series.

    Overall, I found Code 13 to be an enjoyable read. As with other suspense novels, I only read particular authors who I have found to offer consistently interesting, but not gruesome, storylines. Mr. Brown once again offers a unique look at the JAG corps, even while creating unpredictable twists and turns that will keep his readers continuously engaged with his writing. This particular novel feels relatively removed from the previous storyline of Detained and his other works involving Zach Brewer. However, Code 13 offers its own compelling characters, with Mr. Brown's expert pacing and storyline development. If anything, I would have appreciated a more developed ending to the book, as it seemed to wrap up the storyline in an exceptionally succinct manner. I would have preferred to see a bit more detail than the relatively quick epilogue that Mr. Brown provided.

    Special thanks to BookLook Bloggers and Zondervan for the advanced copy of Code 13!

    Thanks!
