About the Author
As a security contractor, government civilian, and military officer, Myke Cole’s career has run the gamut from counterterrorism to cyber warfare to federal law enforcement. He’s done three tours in Iraq and was recalled to serve during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. All that conflict can wear a guy out. Thank goodness for fantasy novels, comic books, late-night games of Dungeons & Dragons, and lots of angst-fueled writing. Myke is the author of Gemini Cell, a prequel to his Shadow Ops novels, as well as the Shadow Ops series, including Breach Zone, Fortress Frontier, and Control Point.

I enjoyed every word written.
Mike Cole continues the story of undead SEAL Jim Schweitzer in Javelin Rain, fifth of his "Shadow Ops" books but the second chronologically. Cole maintains the brisk action combined with explorations of PTSD and the moral dilemmas faced by all the participants, willing and unwilling, in armed conflict. More backstory of the mysterious Entertech corporation is revealed, along with a few peeks behind the curtain at who's really pulling the strings. Schweitzer's journey through his undeath includes both victories and defeats, brief triumphs and devastating setbacks. "Javelin Rain" has a satisfying conclusion for a book that forms the middle of a trilogy, but come the last page, it's clear Schweitzer's work remains unfinished. The next volume, "Siege Line", is forthcoming.
