Product Description

Young naval intelligence officer Bob Molster never knew his grandfather who disappeared in Korea in 1950. Haunted for years by the uncertainty of his grandfather's fate, Molster is determined to find out the truth behind rumors that the North Koreas may still be holding some American POWs. He enlists the help of two retired special forces commandos, and finances an elaborate and dangerous plan that takes the trio deep into North Korea. The only thing they know for sure is that they'll probably return heroes, or not at all.

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. Facebook: Don-Brown

Thunder in the Morning Calm by Don Brown begins at a prison in North Korea, where enemies from the Korean War are detained, tortured, and sometimes killed. The story depicts the boiling tension between the U.S. and North Korea. The plot revolves around a U.S. Navy Commander named Gunner, who discovers that there are a few surviving American prisoners of war in North Korea. A small part of him hopes and believes that his grandfather may be one of the survivors. He decides to fund a private mission to infiltrate North Korea and rescue them. He hires two retired U.S. Special Operations soldiers, and the three men learn to trust each other as they encounter dangers hidden within North Korea.

This novel takes a fresh look at modern war and Spec Ops. Instead of making the story a bloody battle, the author uses the dispositions and quirks of each character to intensify the plot and raise the quality of writing. He provides the reader with the chance to connect with the characters through their thoughts and actions. Unlike many books wherein the characters seem shallow and boring, Brown gives each of his characters a unique personality. This adds to the story's believability and makes the plot something more than just a rescue mission. The dialogue creates another positive element in the story. It reveals personality traits and adds a sense of humor that helps lighten the mood and decrease some of the overwhelming tension.

At first, I felt skeptical about the story's concept. By the end, surprisingly, I found myself entranced with the characters and plot, with chills running down my spine. This book is a must-have for school and church libraries and even private collections. It incorporates Christianity throughout the story, but the author does not make it sound preachy. The characters put their faith and trust in God to deliver them to safety."The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him" (Psalm 28:7 NIV) This strong faith in God adds a nice touch to the story. However, the Christian messages do not sidetrack the progress of the plot. This makes it a great story for believers or non-believers, something that truly will intrigue everyone. – Keegan C. Rudmann,
