5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT THRILLER!, January 5, 2010
By B. King (SC, USA) - Excellent Thriller!
This book was loaned to me by an old Navy buddy of mine who had served with the author. It took me back to those days during the Cold War when I was serving in the Navy. I started out slow on it, but then I could not put it down! I am looking forward to the next Rigney Page adventure! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews


5.0 out of 5 stars NON STOP ADVENTURE, November 21, 2009
By Tonilee E. Myre "T.Myre" (Virginia Beach, VA)
Apollo Rises is one of the best books I have read in many years. The book is very well written and has excellent descriptive scenarios. I had a little problem with technical details in some small areas of the book, but the continued adventure of the main character, Rigney Page, made it hard for me to put the book down. I would read this a second time. It is exciting. Great Book.


5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, August 1, 2008
By Ronald L. Schwab
Harry Bosch, Jack Reacher, Mitch Rapp and Kirk McGarvey have all been replaced by this action hero Rigney Page, RM2, USN. Well written and of special interest to anyone looking for adventure.


5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERBLY CRAFTED STORY, August 23, 2008
By Alfred M. Albers (Virginia Beach)
This is a page-turner of a book and is hard to put down; you'll find yourself saying, "I'll read one more chapter, but you'll wind up reading four more, instead. Mr. Ellis has written a terrific story. If you're looking for something different, something exciting, something that will keep you on the edge of your seat - this is the book to read!

Ron Phillips, MCPO, USN Retired - 2007
“I finished reading the intriguing ‘Apollo Rises’ at 0100 this morning. I had a difficult time tearing myself away ‘til I had devoured it. I felt as if I were a part of the story from start to finish.”


5.0 out of 5 stars COLD WAR MYSTERY AND USPENSE ABOARD A U.S. NAVY CRUISER, March 27, 2006
By Daniel P. Raustadt "Dan The Man" (Phoenix, AZ)
I enjoyed the book. About midway, I found it difficult to put down. Michael served up some great mystery and suspense. I served aboard the USS Columbus (during the cold war) in the radio communications division with the author. So, I was familiar with many of the things he writes about. Job well done!
