Don Brown in his new book, “Defiance book coverDefiance” Book Three in the Navy Justice series published by Zondervan gives us an adventure with Zack Brewer.

From the back cover:  JAG Officer Zack Brewer faces another high profile case…and a mission he hopes will rescue the best part of his past.

From a murder in Paris to a courtroom in California to a terrorist camp in the Gobi Desert, Don Brown’s follow-up to Treason and Hostage plunges into a suspense-filled journey of danger, duty, and hope.

Shannon McGilverry, an NCIS agent, has been  assigned to protect Navy JAG Officer Zack Brewer. Zack is being hunted by terrorists, stalked by a psychopath, and is working his way through a perilous, politically-charged trial. When another Navy JAG officer is murdered, it’s clear how close the noose is to tightening around Zack’s own neck.

And now the rumors surface that Zack’s ex-cocounsel, Diane Colcerninan, may still be alive. Determined to risk everything to find her, Zack finds himself in need of his faith more than ever as Navy SEALS launch a daring rescue attempt—one with the potential to trigger World War III.

If you thought the first two books in this series were exciting then you are certainly in for a treat. “Defiance” is the best so far! Don Brown knows how to write a perfect thriller. First there is the murder of an international attorney. Then Zack has to deal with the posturing of a power-hungry politician. In the meantime Zack has an NCIS agent protecting him from the schemes of a psychotic stalker. To top it all off there is the high-stakes drama of a daring rescue mission. Here is what I recommend:  eat dinner early, go to the bathroom, make your popcorn and turn off all your phones. You are not going to want to be disturbed while you are reading and you will want to finish the book before you go to bed. The action flies in this book and the suspense builds and builds with each page. All I can say is that you will be riveted as you flip pages as fast as you can read. You will not be disappointed. I recommend this book with enthusiasm.
