In this action-packed novella, Black Ops veteran Leo J. Maloney delivers a heartpounding tale as fast, cold, and sleek as a 9mm bullet . . .

First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Leo Maloney, Kensington Books and Lyrical Underground for providing me with a copy of this book, which allows me to provide you with this review.

While readers await the next full-length Dan Morgan novel, Maloney keeps his fans sated with this entertaining short story. After being captured while on a mission in Russia, Dan Morgan is sent to a Siberian prison camp. Refusing to acknowledge his existence, let alone his his mission, Zeta Division wi

Caught – yes, I was caught by what I read on the very first page of this book and as I realized that the prisoner mentioned, Dan Morgan, would have his life unfold in raw gritty detail from torture to imprisonment in a Siberian Gulag and then beyond I was hooked and unable to leave the story until I had finished in the wee hours of the morning. There were twists, turns, surprises, murder, mayhem and realism that might not appeal to all but it did appeal to me as it was not gratuitous but oh so v ...more

This is the first of the Dan Morgan series I've read, the writing is spot on and the story itself pulls you in right from the start.
Both the protagonist and his adversary are well drawn out and you genuinely become interested in their lives.

I'll definitely be ordering the first few books of this series and I'd recommend Dan Morgan as a character to invest some of your time in.

I received a free copy through Netgalley for an honest review.

Dan Morgan books are amazing and Leo J Maloney did another great job carrying the idea of the character through, while growing and maturing all the characters in the series. I cannot wait for the next batch in the series!!

A Dan Morgan short story. A very thrilling beginning followed by breathtaking action. the climax was not good enough, was actually expecting more of a takedown on a grander scale.

Not a typical Maloney book

This book needs to be edited. There were a ton of typos.
This is a simplified version of the typical Dan Morgan books. There were very few characters and the ending was obvious.

Leo J Maloney has written some magnificent books, and this is another great story to add to the list. When it comes to Action Thrillers he certainly knows how to entertain, and fill the pages with a great plot from start to finish. Daniel Morgan worked for an American clandestine unit called the Zeta Division. Like most secret organisations if you got caught by the enemy while out on an operation, then no one was coming to your rescue. You were on your own. Daniel knew he was in all sorts of tro ...more

For Duty and Honor by Leo J. Maloney is a Dan Morgan novella. This is the first book I have read in this series. While I may have missed out on some background information, I was still able to enjoy this book.

Dan Morgan finds himself captive in a Siberian prison. Though I was not familiar with the characters, I was instantly caught up in the story. Right from the start, I had to know how Dan would orchestrate his escape. There was an extra layer to the story with Dan’s daughter trying to find he

This action packed novella was my introduction to operative Dan Morgan.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella even though I have not read the earlier novels featuring Morgan. I was happily surprised to find that this novella contained enough well plotted action and tidbits of back story so that it captured my interest and kept me reading to the surprising end. This novella was crafted so well that I'd like to read the full length novels too.

I recommend this novella to anyone who would like an excitin

It's not unusual for me to gravitate towards this kind of book, after having spent the vast majority of my career working with and for the military. I absolutely loved this character, and struggled when he struggled, felt hopeless when he felt hopeless, and experienced the surging of patriotism when he did. The plot is deliciously complex, and surprises come out of the blue when you're not expecting to be blind-sided. Great book, and highly recommended. ...more

Another great read by Leo Maloney. I just wish it had been a novel instead of a novella, as I wanted the story to continue.
Very fast paced with superb characters. The description and feeling you get from the setting in Russia was excellent - almost like you were there.
Can't wait for the next installment of Dan Morgan!

Not bad.

It's a little short and has a bit of a rushed ending but an entertaining read. It is probably my 3rd or 4th favorite from the series.
