Overview

Six American men live behind a protective façade, their real work hidden from neighbors and friends. Different in countless ways, they are intimately the same in one: at any moment their lives can be altered with a phone call, and their actions may change the world.

They are Special Ops. And one team’s mission is about to hit certain jeopardy status when the discovery of an Al Qaeda base in Venezuela becomes secondary to thwarting the transport of a nuclear weapons expert from that training camp to Iran.

Informed by the true combat experience of Captain Jeff Struecker and finessed by award-winning novelist Alton Gansky, Certain Jeopardy is an immersing and pulsating fictional account of what really happens at every level of a stealth engagement: the physical enemy encounter, the spiritual war fought within a soldier, and the emotional battles in families back at home.

Endorsements:

Certain Jeopardyby Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky is like the TV show The Unit on steroids! A group of six men appear to live normal American lives, but at any time they can be called to report to a Special Operations group performing actions for the safety of their country at the risk of their lives. The men are called to Venezuela to investigate rumors of a Al-Qaeda training camp. Instead they stumble into the kidnapping of a nuclear scientist who can empower Iran to create their own nuclear weapons. To rescue him and his family that is being held hostage for his cooperation will force them to use every skill they know and may cost them their lives. I'm not usually a fan of military thrillers, but this book grabbed me on page one and didn't let go until I finally remembered to breathe again at the end. Struecker has served several tours of duty himself, so the writing gives an inside look at secret military operations and the incredible amount of skill and fortitude needed by its members. The action is written so that every scene is almost cinematic; I could see it play out in my head. Interspersed are scenes of the families at home coping with never knowing where their loved ones are or if they will come home. Together they create a powerful look at Army life. I hope that the authors will revisit this team, because I would love to read more!

    Captain Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky in their new book, ¿Cert

    Captain Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky in their new book, “Certain Jeopardy” Book One in the Special Ops series published by B&H Publishing Group gives us another mission with Sergeant Eric Moyer and his Special Ops team.




    From the back cover:  Your safety rests in the hands of six men…




    …they are Special Ops and their mission has just been upgraded from difficult to impossible. A detect-and-observe mission revealed the unexpected-and the terrifying. The discovery has forced a change in the mission-a change they call Certain Jeopardy. Failure to act endangers millions. To save the countless, Eric Moyer’s team may need to end the life of one innocent man–a fact that haunts the lone Christian on the team.




    “Certain Jeopardy” takes the reader on a secret military mission to foreign soil. Six men, different in many ways, leave family behind to do heroic acts no one will ever hear about. At home, family members face challenges, fears and a life-and-death decision-all without the strength and guidance of their husbands and fathers. Physical battles without, spiritual battles within. Failure means catastrophe




    In this book we are introduced to the six men of Special Ops and their families. This is important as these six men form their own family to rely upon one another in order to survive the mission. They also have their own families which have to face their own problems without these men. Military procedural thriller doesn’t really do this book justice. While it most certainly is let me assure you it is much much more. Let me put it this way, get ready for a nail-biting, page-turning thriller.  Sergeant Moyer and the team are in deadly danger as they are racing around the globe trying to thwart the transport of a nuclear weapons expert from a Venezuela training camp to Iran.. Captain Jeff  Struecker and Alton Gansky not only know how Special Ops forces work they know how to craft suspense.  So much is going on within the pages of “Certain Jeopardy” and the characters are so real that you care for all of them and want them to succeed, well at least the good guys.  There is more to the story that I didn’t mention but you didn’t really expect me to tell you everything did you?  Otherwise you might not want to read the book and I wouldn’t want you to pass up an opportunity for a terrific read. Captain Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky have written a current spy story with an old-time flair.  There are great themes in this book:  family, duty, country and how God figures in everything.  “Certain Jeopardy” is a book that you will want to start early otherwise you will be up very late as you will want to finish it.  I highly recommend it and am looking forward to more from this talented duo.

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

    AN INTENSE, CREDIBLE AND GRIPPING READ!

    "In Certain Jeopardy, Captain Jeff Strucecker delivers an intense, full-throated and credible Special Operations thriller that includes the often ignored personal relationship challenges inherent in every soldier's life--health, family, faith--and he does so with a light touch that delivers a succession of potent, powerful punches. To understand the mind and heart of the men who serve in this elite force, this book is a must read. Don't miss it!"

    Great writing partnership

    Captain Jeff Struecker, a decorated former US Ranger, and Alton Gansky, award-winning author, have teamed up to produce a novel that is filled with action and populated with unforgettable characters. While a clandestine operation is taking place in Venezuela, drama continues on the home front as families battle with the problems created by the absence of their loved ones.
    Despite its setting, the novel deals with emotions and decisions with which the reader can identify. There's tension on every page, and I found myself coming back to this book in every spare moment, anxious to see how the story would unfold. There were mixed emotions when I turned the last page--satisfaction at a story well-told and sadness that there was no more to read. But I hear there's a sequel in the works, and I look forward to reading it. Soon, I hope.
