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
When a misunderstanding resulting from a lie causes Russia to believe that American fighter planes have shot into Russian territory and taken down two of their MiGs, tensions rise between Russia and America. Tensions reach a whole new level when a U.S. sub, the USS Honolulu, sinks a seemingly civilian Russian freighter. The fact that there were children aboard the freighter doubles Russias fury, and it sends a large portion of its own submarines and armed helicopters to take out the USS Honolulu. A war breaks out undersea with the Russians unaware that the children whose lives they are seeking revenge for are aboard the USS Honolulu. Should the commander of the USS Honolulu, Pete Miranda, decide to surrender his ship for the sake of the children, he would be putting his crew and himself at the mercy of an unfair trial. When Miranda is offered the chance to have a lawyer from the U.S. represent his case, President Williams sends Americas very best. Can JAG officer Zack Brewer influence the release of the crew of the U.S. sub? Will America be able to find the true location of the plutonium before the entire crew of the USS Honolulu is sentenced to death?
Black Sea Affair is emotional and captivating. The fate of many lives rests in the decisions of a few men. With every character under pressure, one misstep could result in a nuclear war. Isaiah says that justice will bring light to the nations, and this novel shows that those willing to do right, to trust God, and to live honorably will face difficulties, but they will never have to be ashamed of their deeds or character. I would recommend Black Sea Affair to fans of suspense and action. -- Christa Mullen, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
RuthUpstate SCAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5September 10, 2009RuthUpstate SCAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleThe rating goes for all four of the Naval Justice books. Could be 5 stars, but I dislike cussing, euphemistic or otherwise, in a "Christian" book. Good authors, like Mr. Brown, should be able to give the readers the scenario in such a way that they can imagine the utterances. I don't need to read it in print. Having said that, it's edge of the seat suspense! Hope there is going to be more in this vein, even if perhaps not in the series. Stand alone would be good. The romance between Zack & Diane might be nice to persue, though, once settled, that would also end the story line(s)?One reviewer commenting on the switching of locales etc. I feel a little like that - it does detract at times and / or make it harder to follow the main line. My reason for today's comments is this question: When is Mr. Brown's next book coming? Or did I miss one?

Lt Col Glenn D Scott5 Stars Out Of 5September 11, 2008Lt Col Glenn D ScottAbsolutely riviting. I could not put it down until the end. I'm putting you on notice...Don Brown, you must continue the series and bring Zack & Diane's love together, expose the Democratic Congressman for the killer she is, and destroy the Council of Ishmael. I can not rest until I read that book. If need be I will help you write it. Glenn D Scott, Lt Col USAF Retired.
