After being badgered for months by impatient readers who don’t seem to appreciate that I’m working my little digits to nubs in order to keep them entertained, I’m delighted to announce that the second installment in the JET – Ops Files novels, is available on pre-order. JET – Ops Files, Terror Alert will release March 30, assuming no comet smites the earth and that my tequila supply stays steady, which is where you buying my crap comes into play.

The novel chronicles Maya’s operational life in the Mossad, and pits her against Muslim madmen intent on misbehaving, this time with a dirty bomb. Before anyone gets all up in my face about the madmen being Muslim, I’d direct you to the countless reports of terrorist atrocities in the West, and ask you on a percentage basis to rank the number attributable to Muslim extremists, vs., say, Buddhists, or Zoroastrians, or Amish. In that answer lies the reason that they tend to pop up in popular fiction as bad guys.

But this isn’t about geo-political commentary. It’s about ass-kicking female Mossad operatives whose bodies are lethal weapons and who aren’t shy about spraying lead like a murderous Rainbird. Which is what Maya, AKA Jet, is all about. Probably wasn’t breast fed sufficiently as a baby or something, but that’s not the point. What matters is that she’s a teenage leather-clad killing machine with heart.

Here’s the cover. JET-terror alert-final

    If you say so but those Amish can be very tricky. Long live JET you and your nubs.

    Yeah, somehow it wouldn’t be as action-packed with Buddhist adversaries.

    I. Cannot. Wait.

    You’re dating yourself by mentioning a Rainbird. Do they even make them any more, and how many of your blog readers know what it is? I haven’t seen a commercial for one in years. 🙂

      Peter, you need to get out more. Or maybe I do…

        Oh, now I see what you’re talking about. I was thinking of that kid’s splashy toy from years back that you attached to the end of a hose and stuck into the ground and it spit water just absolutely everywhere indiscriminately. (What was that called?) I guess either one would be an appropriate mental image for Jet.

    Just finished The Perseid Collapse Series: Deadly Calm. Now I’ve got some more Blake-Goodness to delve in to! It was the first time I noticed you mention ham radio and was wondering if you are yourself a ham operator (as I am)? Given your location, it seems it would suit you!

      Nope, although I’m certainly a ham…

    Sounds like it’s tough to be you. But wait until you’re the poor hairpiece who’s penned Patterson’s last 500 outlines. No wonder my ends are so dry.

    But seriously, good luck with the new release.

    Fantastic cover!! It will also be a really strong thumbnail in Amazon (why don’t enough people think of that?!)

    Best of luck with the release!

    Kicking cover- leads the reader to expect great action- which is always forthcoming. As for the nubs we do appreciate them. If they get too short maybe you can locate a surgeon to give you prosthetics. Anything to keep the crap flowing for purchase.
