Review quote

"If you like action-packed adventure, here it is. If you can't wait for the next big espionage thriller, wait no more. "Warrior "is the book you should read. It's as if John LeCarre meets Brad Thor in this fast moving story about good guys and bad guys, gray areas and green jungles, and the whole amazing sweep of America's Cold War history. And--get this--it's not a novel. It's all true. You won't believe what you're reading, and you won't be able to stop, either."
--William Martin, "New York Times" bestselling author of "City of Dreams "and "Annapolis
" "There actually are James-Bond-bigger-than-life-characters in the real world. Not many, but Frank Sturgis fits the bill perfectly. WWII Marine hero, CIA operative, Watergate burglar, arms runner to Angola, this guy could and did do everything..."Warrior "reads like a top shelf action-adventure novel, only this story is the real deal."
--David Hagberg, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Cabal"
"Guadalcanal hero, Cuban revolutionary, Castro crony then Castro enemy, Watergate burglar, gunrunner--Frank Sturgis had a hand in almost every mysterious western hemisphere event over the last half of the twentieth century. "Warrior "is not just a fascinating story of a unique man, it's an eye-opener."
--Barbara D'Amato, Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author of "Foolproof"
