"A must read for adults of all ages! Final Departure is a sobering and introspective look at life, death and beyond from a Biblical perspective. While delivering a powerful message through his characters, Jeff Walton gives the reader an accurate and entertaining glimpse into the NCIS special agent culture and the operational world that consumes the lives of some of the best federal law enforcement professionals in the business. He delivers a thought-provoking novel about the perils of ignoring the reality of eternity. Final Departure is a serious work that takes a no-nonsense look at the authenticity of the scriptures - we can't predict our final departure, but we can select the ultimate destination -this book helps set that course." Mark Clookie, Director, NCIS (retired)
