"exciting macho (even with a female co-lead) action thriller"
When they reach the finish line of the New Zealand Eco-
challenge, the military aide to the president, marine Major
Darren Phillips plans to ask Kate North to marry him. Not
long afterward, the duo are in Mexico for their honeymoon.
Kate persuades her husband to "break the rules" and kayak
in a feral part of the country far from civilization.
However, that takes them to a place where tourists, albeit
even perfect physical specimens, do not want to travel
without a platoon of Darren's comrades in arms. Drug
cartel soldiers assault the duo though Darren and Kate
manage to kill the first wave and steal a cell phone. The
drug cartel needs that phone back as it is actually an
encrypted satellite phone that the CIA and FBI, who have
been tapping into it, also want back in the enemy's hands.
Every time the duo uses the phone in their trek towards
Vera Cruz, the device reveals their location to the
assassins chasing after them.
FOUR DAYS TO VERACRUZ is an exciting macho (even with a
female co-lead) action thriller that goes full throttle and
beyond until the finish as the story line is all high
octane energy. Characters from SHARKMAN SIX including the
hero of that novel are part of the thrills so those fans of
Owen West have more to cheer for the good guys. With a
major death toll and a lead couple inhumanly ignoring or
instantly healing from severe traumas while trekking in a
hostile terrain, fans of this action adventures will want
to join the courageous couple on their honeymoon.
