Preview:
. . . Rigney stops at the main gate on the Marathon Road, He shows his ID Card.
. . . The gate sentry, SK2 Simpson, glances perfunctorily at Rigney’s ID Card. Then, with an admiring tone, Simpson says to Rigney, “I guess you’ve had a busy day. First, you mop up the airport parking lot with Newman. Then, within one hour of reporting aboard, you knock out the meanest officer that ever existed. Then, to top all that, you spend the night with Dottie. This place was boring before you got here. What’s next?”
. . . “I deny touching Newman, and will you keep quiet about Dottie?”
. . . “Absolutely not!” Simpson declares with a friendly smile and friendly tone.

The “Rigney Page” adventure series:
1 - Apollo Rises

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun read, April 17, 2013
By George
The book was a fun read, especially because I'd been stationed at Nea Makri. Brought back some good memories. It is a fiction book so you have to sometimes set aside what you know to enjoy the story.


5.0 out of 5 stars A very thrilling novel, February 22, 2013
By William F. McGroarty
This is a real page turner. I lost a lot of sleep because I couldn't put it down
One of the best military books that I have ever read. Good job Chief Ellis


5.0 out of 5 stars Great Geedunk June 15, 2011
By Robert Demott
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
I helped build that base. It brought back fond memories of a place far away, long ago. I looked at how thick the book is thought "should be a good bathroom read for a month". WRONG, I picked it up just after lunch. I finished it in time to make my wife her breakfast. The only other all non-stops I have ever pulled were Tom Clancy books. No doubt, the author was Navy.


5.0 out of 5 stars Really Liked It! March 9, 2011
By Wendy Bransom
I strongly recommend this book, it really kept my interest. If you served in Nea Makri as an US Naval Officer, Chief or Enlisted Sailor, it will really bring back memories. It probably kept my interest due to being a Communicator in the Navy. NCS Nea Makri Greece was probably my most favorite command I was stationed at (I was a junior Officer). This is a wonderful Spy Novel that you will keep you wanting to read more and more! Now onto the Author's other books in this series!


5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Anticipated Sequel!, January 5, 2010
By B. King (SC, USA)
This review is from: Nea Makri (Paperback)
Mr. Ellis continues the adventures of ONI agent/Navy Radioman Rigney Page in this sequel. He did not let me down! I thoroughly enjoyed the international spy mystery interweaved with a rather robust sexual adventures of this young Radioman. Took me way back once again to my own Navy radioman days in numerous exotic locations around the world. Bravo! Mr. Ellis! Give us more Rigney Page!!


5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful!!! August 23, 2008
By Alfred M. Albers
Mr. Ellis has written an epic spy story in "Nea Makri." The strong cast of characters and his ability to crisply portray the local and foreign residents, the minute details of the city of Nea Makri and the U.S. Navy's installation, make for an intriguing and suspenseful story. I truly enjoyed it and look forward to his next novel.

    Nea Makri - Seven Reader Reviews

    Hi Mike, Just received and finished Nea Makri. I love your writing style - 4.0. Hope you´re busy with the next Rig adventure. I read about 20 to 30 novels a month and yours are the greatest thing since 7UP. Thanks, Ron Schwab, Former NST sailor ´69 & ´70 <BR/><BR/>Just finished reading Nea Makri ... outstanding. You have a very unique talent. Since you are writing full time, when can I expect the next Rigney Page story to appear? There wasn´t as much sex in this one, but still outstanding story. Again, congrats on another winner. A loyal fan and reader, Ron Biswell, U.S. Navy Ret.<BR/><BR/>Mike, I enjoyed Nea Makri. I´m looking forward to the next sequel. Keep up the good work. E. "Jim" Poff, RMCM, USN RET<BR/><BR/>That was a good book. You know how to toss a mean salad of characters and action. I hope you know, you´re going to leave your readers in suspense until you publish another one.Todd, North Carolina<BR/><BR/>Mike, Nea Makri was a very good story. Brought back many memories, even though your book took place in the 60´s, and I was there in the early 80´s. I´m going to go out on the net and get your other book - Apollo Rises. Great story and great detail. I read the book in 4 days. The story had excellent background. Kevin Enlund (ITC Retired)<BR/><BR/>Mr. Ellis has written an epic spy story in "Nea Makri." The strong cast of characters and his ability to crisply portray the local and foreign residents, the minute details of the city of Nea Makri and the U.S. Navy´s installation, make for an intriguing and suspenseful story. I truly enjoyed it and look forward to his next novel . . . Alfred M. Albers, author ´Of Ghosts and Magic´ <BR/><BR/>Good evening Mike. I just finished Nea Makri, and I just had to tell you how much I enjoyed it. When I started writing my navy stories, I had in mind how well you have told yours . . . Mike Kamradt

    Well sad to report it was the biggest waste of $8.10 because even after loading Nook and Freida the book is unreadable. Certainly not the

    author's fault but for certain I won't waste further time on Barnes and NOBLE. I thought I was buying a book and all I got was fleeced. Steve McNally
