Overview

BLACK EAGLE FORCE: BLOOD IVORY

Elephant ivory and rhino horn poachers kidnap US Senator Brietbart and his daughter Sarah in Kenya while on a photo safari. The world's largest cruise liner, Royal Pleiades, on its maiden voyage in the Indian Ocean, is hijacked north of Madagascar by al Qaeda and Somali pirates. Onboard are Mike Hermann and Mickey Williams, sons of the President of the United States, and their brides Jill McElheney and Maria Sanchez on their honeymoons. Their identities and the fact they are all operatives of the Top Secret Alpha Tier One group, the BLACK EAGLE FORCE is unknown to the hijackers—much to their sorrow.
The BEF is tasked with dual missions—Recapture the ocean liner and rescue the Senator and his daughter. Mark Ingram, Kenyan Wildlife Service agent and former US Marine, on the trail of the kidnappers is joined by BEF Raptors.

BLACK EAGLE FORCE: BLOOD IVORY, another edge-of-your-seat tale from master storytellers Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke. - Loree Lough, author of nearly 100 award-winning novels, including A MAN OF HONOR.

President Annette Henry Thompson seeks a permanent solution to Islam's attacks on western civilization and unleashes the full fury of the US military on al Qaeda, the Somali pirates and Muslim extremists.
"We want you, General, as Commander of SOCOM, to take the helm for all other aspects of Operation Firestorm," SecDef Baker continued.
"I'm honored to accept the responsibility, Madame President, Mr. Secretary. What are the ROEs?"
"There are none, General White…There are none," replied President Thompson.

I have been privileged to read all of the Black Eagle Force novels by Buck Stienke and Ken Farmer and comment on them.  In my opinion, Blood Ivory is the best, so far.  I don’t know if it is by accident, the premise, their learning curve or the addition of a third writer, Doran Ingrham, or all of the above.  You can make up your mind when you have read it.  You will not be able to put it down until you find out what happens. Senator Brietbart and his daughter are kidnapped while on a photo safari in Kenya by elephant and rhino horn poachers.  The BEF joins Mark Ingram, a Kenyan Wildlife Service agent and inactive US Marine on the trail of the kidnappers in Kenya.  They work together to save the Senator and his daughter. (Not a spoiler, we knew that was going to happen.)     At the same time, the honeymoon trip of the President’s two sons and their wives on the maiden voyage of the Royal Pleiades, the largest cruise ship in the world, is abruptly brought to a halt with a hijacking in the Indian Ocean.  The ship is hi-jacked by al Queda and Somali pirates and the intrepid BEF agents work to get the ship back. (Not a spoiler here, either, we knew it was going to happen.)  Read how the BEF agents foil the plans of the perpetrators with some BEF tactics combined with some MacGyver devices.  President Annette Thompson, the mother of the two grooms, calls on the BEF to help with handling these predicaments.       “”Once the Black Eagle Force has recaptured the Indian vessel and it is under our protection…I want you to turn your best efforts into decimating the Somali piracy threat…once and for all.”” ““I’m honored to accept the responsibility, Madame President, Mr. Secretary. What are the ROEs?” “There are none, General White. There are none.”    Thus begins the beginning of the end – or does it? Do the two stories merge or not?  You will have to read the book to learn how it all happens and the end result.  You will feel as if you are a member of this elite force as you follow the BEF on another exciting clandestine mission (or two).   Buck Stienke is a retired captain and fighter pilot for the United States Air Force and a graduate from the Air Force Academy.  He was a pilot for Delta Airlines for over 25 years and also executive producer of the award winning film Rockabilly Baby.   Ken Farmer served in the Marine Corps and graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University.  Ken has been a professional actor, writer and director with memorable roles in Silverado, Friday Night Lights and Uncommon Valor.  He continues to write and direct award-winning films, including Rockabilly Baby.   Doran Ingrham’s former life included the USMC, Risk Management/Close Security Specialist and extensive experience dealing with terrorists.  He has appeared in commercials, TV and films.  He now lives with his wife in an undisclosed location.

Several fast-moving plot lines woven together seamlessly. I've been to Africa twelve times for extended stays; not seeing a paved road for 5 weeks. These writers put you right there on the plains, in the bush, among the wild life. They shed much-needed light on the very real horror of poaching,the brutal slaughter of elephant and rhino for tusks and horns that are hacked away often while the animal still lives, and then left to die. These savage acts have brought the most magnificent creatures to the very edge of total extinction. BLOOD IVORY tells it like it is. The heroes, men and wonderful women, are bold and resourceful with wicked humor. I was delightfully educated about weaponry and airplanes and battle tactics while carried along by the racing plots. Engrossed, unwilling to take my eyes from the page, my hot coffee, within easy reach, cooled, time and again. These gentlemen know what they're talking about and will take you for a helluva ride to places you might never have thought to go...but you'll be glad and grateful you did. You're in for a real treat when you go with the Black Eagle Force. Alex Cord Author of DAYS OF THE HARBINGER and A FEATHER IN THE RAIN
