    Book details

Termination Orders is based on the author's missions in Black Ops. Hero Dan Morgan is simultaneously hunted by a double-crossing CIA and Congress, vengeful foreign agents, a corporate drug ring, the Taliban, and narco-terrorists ... a you-are-there action thriller of torture, assassination, betrayals, and revenge, where nothing is as it seems.

A highly entertaining book that gives the reader a taste of international intrigue, insight in covert operations, a glimpse into the world of terrorism, believable characters including some of the pencil pushers in DC and above all a coherent story. I greatly enjoyed reading it --Hermann S. - Buzzards Bay, MAReading the book was like watching a great action thriller. It kept me on the edge of my seat as I turned each page. I couldn't put the book down. --Henry P. - Deerfield Beach, FL While Leo J. Maloney was serving in the army in 1966, he was recruited by a US government agency and received highly specialized Black Ops training. He worked all over the world at strategically important hotspots. Among his assignments were asset extraction, espionage, and numerous missions still too top secret to divulge. As an independent contractor, he was never required to accept a particular assignment, but rather selected ones meeting his criteria that it was in the best interest of the country.

    A deep ops story presented in an epic style that takes fact mixed with a bit of fiction to create a spy thriller that takes the reader deep into secret spy missions. Leo Maloney had a career in Black Ops that he left in 2001. After many friends heard some of Leo's experiences they told him there was definitely a book that he must write telling of his work as a spy. Leo takes you with him into the depths, or should I say pits, of torture, deception, and friendship in Black Ops, and a personal life that had to be completely separate from the secrecy of work.Code names were what their associates know most spies by unless they are exceptionally personally close. Cougar, Zalmay, and Cobra are some of the key names in this story. Cobra, (Dan Morgan), has been retired a few years trying to get his family life together but never able to fully forget his career that kept him on edge every minute of every day no matter where he was. Cobra answers his door to a former associate, Plante, who is trying to get Cobra back in the deep ops business telling him that only he can perform the current task for the CIA. Cobra tells Plante, a former associate, there is no way he would ever return to the ops program, that is until Plante tells Cobra that his old buddy, Cougar, is dead and he had left a message that only Cobra would be able to decipher. Cobra took Plante into his home office telling his family that Plante was an old associate and friend. Plante told Morgan (Cobra) that the agency needed him pronto for this assignment and begged him to help. Thus begins an adventure for Morgan taking him back to the disastrous dangerous conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan while telling his family next to nothing about why he was leaving to help once again. Morgan goes to the CIA offices to fill out all the paperwork that he thought would no longer be a part of his or his family's life. He then was shown Cougar's message that Morgan realized was in a code that only he could understand.When Cobra got to Afghanistan he again met up with those he had worked with before, as well as some new faces that he knew not whether to trust. He had to trust his instinct and the word from those he had trusted. While Morgan was deeply involved across the sea, Senator Lana McKay was running for reelection and was searching for backers. A part of her campaign was to check on all the private contractors in Afghanistan and Iraq to flush out the bad ones and help the good ones. She met with Senator Nickerson, who she thought was one of her supporters, but proved not to be. Eventually her life was threatened because of her stance.Cobra was in and out of trouble, prison, and suffering terrible treatment, all the while meeting new people not knowing their trustworthiness. He traveled in between with even some time in the United States where he could talk with his family briefly but he had to stay on the move still searching for clues connected to Cougar. At one point the CIA started to wonder if Morgan had gone rogue and killed off some of those connected with him. Another spy, Natasha, and Senator Nickerson were supposed to kill Morgan but neither had succeeded so Natasha said she would get him. When Morgan's family became a pawn in this puzzle, he declared he would end this and get those that would hurt his family.I do not want to go any deeper into this terrific story. If Leo Maloney actually lived this story we all owe him and those like him a deep amount of gratitude and praise. These deep ops people have to play the game in so many different ways to get results. Our nation is so fortunate to have them working for us as they fight those that oppose us and would kill each and every one of us if they could.

    In this fast-paced, action-packed thriller by first-time novelist and former Black Ops agent Leo J. Maloney, Dan Morgan, in an attempt to keep his family safe and protected from his past experiences in Black Ops, temporarily appeases the CIA in response to his close teammate Peter Conley's death. But once interpreting the circumstances of his death via a coded message Conley, codenamed Cougar, has posthumously left him, Morgan, a.k.a. Cobra, jets off to find out the truth, starting a conspiratorial manhunt of epic proportions, putting himself, Peter, and his wife and daughter in the crosshairs. Termination Orders spans the globe in a whirlwind of events that twist the storyline every which way, creating and sustaining the suspense and attention-grabbing action Tom Clancy novels are made of. Leo's personal experience in Black Ops gives him a knee-up on the competition, though, as he relays a deep connection to the events , bumping up the impact and the reader's caring for the characters. For a debut novel, Maloney hits it out of the park and leaves the story just open enough for a possible sequel or Dan Morgan trilogy.- T.C. RobsonBookNom -

    Maybe it is just the curiosity in me or maybe its the way my brain functions, but I have always found books about the FBI, CIA, CSI, and other investigative and clandestine services to be extremely interesting. They don't fit my typical Christian and historical reviews, but when a good one comes along, I just cannot pass it up. This is the situation with this book. The author kept my attention and interest page after page. There was action going on with every turn of the page. It had its not so pleasant moments, but they were not terribly graphic nor did they make me want to quit reading the book. I found myself cheering inside for the good characters, hoping they would be successful in their mission. I thought that it was a good read and the fact that the author had some experience in Black Ops added to the realistic character of the book. As with real life, people can be deceiving and you never really know who are the good guys and who are the wolves in sheep's clothing. For a different type of read, give this one a try. If all that espionage and secret operations stuff interests you, like it does me, then you are sure to like this book as well as I did.
