But life tosses Blake a curve when his country approaches him about using his special skills to avert a terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear device in a major eastern U.S. city. To do that, he would need to become an operative deep within Al-Qaeda's innermost circles-changing his entire identity, even his face. A true patriot, Blake makesthe journey into a shadow world that leaves friends, family and, seemingly, even God far behind. But when things go terribly wrong, and his country looks set to destroy him, it is God and God's people who intervene.

    This book is well worth the read. It's always refreshing to read a book by an author who is truly qualified and experienced in terms of the storyline. Though it's fiction, I get the sense there's a lot of truth to be gleaned from this intriguing story. Great book, no cursing, no lurid sex, and yet as entertaining as any book I've read. I would recommend this book only to those who have the blessing of understanding what and who a TRUE warrior is...ALWAYS a follower of Jesus Christ. I wouldn't expect anyone else to get it.

    Premise - I adored the premise of DANGER CLOSE. As a writer of military and espionage stories, this was the perfect blend of military and covert operations. Brilliant concept and development. I'm not one of those readers who enjoys figuring out stories--I like to read and enjoy the stage the author has set, and I completely enjoyed what Boykin/Morrisey developed in DANGER CLOSE. Faith and family were carefully--and realistically--woven in. Very well done!Pacing: For me, an action junkie, there was a solid dose of action and adventure in this story of incredible sacrifice for a war-time hero. There were times I felt the story was told rather than experienced during important elements, but detracted very little from the story itself. There was so much involved, several layers, my mind stayed busy regardless--and happy!Particulars: As mentioned earlier, the faith thread was wholly organic and very well done, not contrived or over done. There's always someone out there who wants to make our soldiers (airmen, sailors, etc.) into bloodthirsty monsters, but DANGER CLOSE even has the character consider and weigh his actions--but gets the job done. It's a delicate balance but handle with grace and skill in this book.Placement: This book takes a top shelf in my bookcase--a definite keeper. Again, I absolutely adored the concept, and the execution kept me reading!My husband has already snatched up this book from my shelf--and that says a lot!!

    This review is from reading an Advanced Reader Copy/Unedited Proof. A couple days ago I finished reading a thriller/action-adventure/suspense novel and I was immediately in the mood for more. Thus I looked through my shelves to find similar authors and found two books that I read last year about the same genre one was Pirate Hunter by Tom Morrisey. So I looked up the authors and discovered that I had an ARC sitting on my shelf co-authored by Tom Morrisey at Lieutenant General (Retired) William G. "Jerry" Boykin. With some excitement I snatched it off my shelf and dove in.When I read about this book I thought that it was going to be all military and more a "man's-novel" than something that I would enjoy, but it was both. There was tons of military jargon and descriptions, but for the most part I was able to keep up and catch on. This is a novel about a Army Special Forces veteran that turns Spook and works in some extremely dangerous double agent espionage in an Al-Qaeda cell. It was thrilling and suspenseful. I was nervous and excited. It was the same thrill as watching the television show 24 or reading/watching the Jason Borne stories. The characters were real and easy to follow.My only issues were specific to it being an unedited proof and therefore hold no control over what the final press print will be like, but even in a draft this story was there and developed fully enough for extreme entertainment. I would not hesitate to recommend this story to anyone. Normally I try to stay out of the stories that deal with "current day scenarios" as it is true that anything in this book could be tomorrow's headline. But I felt that this novel was entertaining and if nothing more than that provides hope. Lt. Blake Kershaw is a good 'ole boy and a true patriot. I would gladly want to own a real copy of this novel for my keeper shelf.

    Action filled from page one.Addicting writing and hard to put down, Boykin and Morrisey bring the realities of war to your imagination. The characters are more than just people on a page; they take on a life of their own full of emotions and struggles that will touch the closed places of your heart.War is a terrible thing. When you face it head on the choices you make in the service of your country and the better good are often split second choices. Faith in God is sometimes the only thing you have to hang on to when it seems all is lost.Danger close will take you inside a soldiers mind..if you dare to enter.
