This fast-moving novel accurately romps through Washington DC’s political intrigue and governmental agencies, US foreign relationships, and cutting-edge cloak-and-dagger technology. Ranch sites in Texas and New Mexico, as well as subterranean hideouts in Florida, become fronts for the clandestine operations. They don’t officially work for the government but have all the support they need, while flying low under the radar with one goal in mind: protect our country from its enemies. There’s high tension, page after page….a great read that’s virtually impossible to put down.
The CODE X prologue aptly describes where this team of dedicated, undercover super-spies began to be formed: Embroiled in the savage, heavy fighting in the Chosin Reservoir area of North Korea, Charlie Company had suffered heavily, losing not only over one hundred Marine infantrymen, but the company commander and all senior enlisted as well. The lieutenant, who had taken over as CO, had thanked his lucky stars time and time again for the past several hours that he had a man like Mackey as his acting first sergeant. While Gunny Mackey had been earning Purple Hearts and numerous medals for bravery at places like Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa, Frank Castano was playing football and chasing skirts at Jefferson High School in Port Arthur, Texas. But that was then, and this is now.
