Synopsis

*** With over 500,000 copies in circulation and over 3000 Five-Star reviews, it’s time to discover the world of Archaeology Professor James Acton! ***


If you enjoy action-packed thrillers, then don’t miss Brass Monkey, a non-stop thrill-ride from J. Robert Kennedy, “a master story teller” (Betty Richard) and “one of the best writers today” (Johnny Olsen).


WILL A FORGOTTEN WEAPON AND AN UNCONTROLLABLE HATE UNLEASH THE ULTIMATE WAR?

 

A nuclear missile, lost during the Cold War, is now in play—the most public spy swap in history, with a gorgeous agent the center of international attention, triggers the endgame of a corrupt Soviet colonel's 25-year plan. Pursued across the globe by the Russian authorities, including a brutal Spetsnaz unit, those involved will stop at nothing to deliver their weapon and ensure their payday, regardless of the terrifying consequences.

 

When Laura Palmer confronts a UNICEF group for trespassing on her Egyptian archaeological dig site, she unwittingly stumbles upon the ultimate weapons deal, and becomes entangled in an international conspiracy that sends her lover, Archaeology Professor James Acton, racing to Egypt with the most unlikely of allies, not only to rescue her, but to prevent the start of a holy war that could result in Islam and Christianity wiping each other out. 

 

If you enjoy action-packed thrillers, then don’t miss Brass Monkey, a novel international in scope, certain to offend some and stimulate debate in others. Brass Monkey, from USA Today Bestselling author J. Robert Kennedy, “a master storyteller” (Betty Richard) and “one of the best writers today” (Johnny Olsen), pulls no punches in confronting the conflict between two of the world's most powerful, and divergent, religions, and the terrifying possibilities the future may hold if left unchecked.

    Retired

    A great follow-up and sequel to “The Protocol” and was pleased to find out there are two more books in this “James Acton Thriller” series to enjoy. His storylines for the first two books, as I believe he mentioned at the end of “Brass Monkey”, are unfortunately quite plausible and there are probably some madmen out there who would not give a second thought to carrying out similar evil deeds ... a chilling reality indeed ... and a scary realization that one of these wackos could even be living among us in our own backyards. I look forward to reading the next two books in this series!
