Authors Steven G. Shandrow and Greg E. Riplinger take readers on a high-seas adventure that anyone familiar with the Navy, or even a love of being on the waves, will appreciate. Using the recent upsurge in Somali piracy and smuggling drugs via the world’s waterways, the authors deliver an authentic sailor’s experience in their work of Navy fiction. Chief Bob Kensey, an ex-Navy man, loves his quiet life in the Pacific Northwest. However, he agrees to leave behind his peaceful retirement for an entirely different kind of adventure, one that only the truly brave would attempt. When a member of the DEA approaches him with a dangerous proposition, he is far too intrigued and excited by the prospect of being back on the rolling seas to do anything but agree, even though he’s warned that it’s likely that the mission won’t succeed. Together, Chief Kensey and several others, all retired members of the Navy, set out on the doomed mission. Despite the devastating odds, each has his own reasons for wanting to be on board, and will not be so easily daunted by the prospect of danger. Sailing slightly under the radar and definitely away from the safety of familiar waters, they return to their boat to deal with a modern threat unlike any of them have encountered before. A refreshingly vivid adventure that combines the honor of the retired Navy with the very current threat of drug smuggling and Somalian piracy, readers will be swept up in this tale from the first stanzas of the Navy song that opens the book. A wild and exciting ride, Goat Locker Strikes! is an ideal read for anyone looking to be carried away on a truly great wave, and especially fun (as well as poignant) for anyone familiar with the thrill and danger of being a member of America’s Navy.
