.... In this sequel to APOLLO RISES, the Office of Naval Intelligence assigns Petty Officer Rigney Page undercover to track a scheming master chief suspected of espionage. Page's assigned mission was planned as basic surveillance. But his mission becomes complicated when he encounters violent and unethical sailors and a disturbed commanding officer.

.... The situation becomes deadly when the master chief's Russian controller detects that the master chief is about to run.
. . . 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.

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
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.
Mike, I enjoyed Nea Makri. I´m looking forward to the next sequel. Keep up the good work. E. "Jim" Poff, RMCM, USN RET
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
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)
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´
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
