My G. I. JOE novel is on sale at Amazon now (available for free if you're an Unlimited subscriber!) Here's a preview of the opening chapter. If you check out the book, I'd love to hear what you think.
A fine game of poker, ruined by a kicked down door and an invasion from America’s highly trained special missions force.
Their mission? To defend a crooked, crumbling institution and ruin a lazy Tuesday afternoon game of No River Hold’Em. That’s what any self-respecting Viper would tell you.
McMichael was the first to move, to flip the table over and use it as cover. He’d been stationed in this factory for months now, him and a dozen Vipers overlooking one of their emperor’s pet operations. Didn’t seem like a dangerous assignment; keep an eye on the plant, make sure the reconnaissance aircraft funded by the Benzheen government ended up where it belonged. (Cobra clutches, naturally.)
How’d the Joes find out about this one? It had to be the tenth invasion of a Cobra op in recent weeks. McMichael just knew Serpentor would be on fire during his next address. Months had passed since anyone had heard from him, in spite of the Vipers receiving numerous assurances that all was well with their emperor.
