Now available in mass market, this gripping, high seas adventure is well-crafted by bestselling author and Navy SEAL expert, Patrick Robinson. "New York Times" bestselling author Patrick Robinson is back with the third thriller in his page-turning "Mack Bedford series: The Delta Solution". Ripped from the headlines, this action-packed high seas adventure tracks Somali Pirates as they terrorize the coastal waters of the lawless East African republic, turning the Indian Ocean into a ferocious battleground. For the past three years, these heavily-armed tribal brigands have been capturing and holding for ransom massive cargo ships, especially oil tankers, and violently demanding millions of dollars for their return. Pirating out of the tiny Somalian village of Haradheere has become a very lucrative, dangerous business, so much so that the village has its own Stock Exchange with a reputed $78 million in cash, all in crisp $100 bills, in the town vault. And each time an owner pays big for the return of their ship, the pirates immediately strike again, enraging the Pentagon more and more by the day. That is, until the "Somali Marines" make a big mistake, seizing at gun point two United States ships and demanding a $15 million ransom for their return. Hero Mack Bedford, previously encountered in "Diamondhead and Intercept", is deployed to SEAL Team 10 to form "The Delta Platoon". His objective: obliterate the Somali Marines in the middle of the Indian Ocean, at all costs, once and for all.
"The high-action thriller lives on. Here is a rare tale that's not only ripped-from-the-headlines timely, but also so elegantly structured as to evoke comparisons with masters like Vince Flynn, Steve Berry, and James Rollins. An instant, surefire classic that is not to be missed."
--Jon Land, bestselling author of "Strong Justice"
