Overview

With his ratings low in the opinion polls and his chances of re-election looking slim, the President of the United States needs to start looking strong again. The American people have simply had enough of the drug pushers and pedlars. The President orders the DoJ to get its act together and get the FBI and DEA working together, sharing intelligence with the CIA and to start taking down the major players in Operation Marlin.

Madison Hayes from the FBI and Logan Watson from the DEA are thrown together as MEX1 and tasked with Capture or Kill of Mexican drug king, Miguel Perez, ruler of South America's narcokleptocracy. Hayes likes scientific logic and verified research whilst Watson is more hands-on. Will they be able to gel in time and work as a unit?

As they reach the Gulf of Mexico and unexpected things happen, the young agents start to question "Who can we really trust and who is watching our backs?"

To bring Perez in they are going to need to use all their skills and wit along with help from a variety of unlikely sources including an accidental hero, America's elite Special Forces and ...an unidentified species.

A sharp narco-thriller with a sting in the tail.

    Author John A. Rigby has worked for many years in a Government A

    Author John A. Rigby has worked for many years in a Government Agency, but now spends his time writing fiction. One of such writing is “Break Night”. The writing style used in the book along with the storyline (the plot) forms a perfect book, which will captivate its readers for a 150 page long journey.

    The very first thing I liked about this book is, story is set in near future (3 months to be precise) which made the whole connecting to the story a breeze. It’s Operation Marlin. Its aim was to tackle the tidal wave of narcotics invading America. Two agents, one from DEA and the other from FBI are working together to bring down South American drug kingpin Miguel Perez, all of this because president wanted results to convince the people of America that he was serious about drugs and that it was he who could make a difference, and by doing this he can win the second term in the white house.

    Critically, this book has a relatively slow pace, but for me it worked just fine. This book has very good plot line and author did a good job on execution of the same. There are some issues with dialogue delivery like this one, “He looked across the desk at his new temporary partner, Federal Bureau of Investigation Agent Madison Hayes.” here rather than using simple “FBI agent” author used “Federal Bureau of Investigation” which makes reading, ‘work’.

    On concluding notes I can say that, it was a good book and a nice read. There were lot of twists and turns of events which made reading this book a fun ride, thus a sure contender for 3 or 5 star rating.

    Not great

    Book had a simple consistant plot with many twists...but most of the basic facts wrong. Titles for various military parts were way off. Felt some parts were over exaggerated. I fully understand changing some facts to fit the story, but a good author should always keep it as real as possible to make the reader dive into it and enjoy the storyline. Im sorry i just feel an informed reader would not enjoy this book...wasnt what i thought it would be an a few times almost stopped reading...

    Ok but lack of firearms research.

    If Mr Rigby truly spent time working in a government agency, he couldn't have much, if any, firearms education. An AR-15 is a rifle and would not be tucked into ones waistband, and a Glock 17 is a semi-automatic pistol, not a revolver.
