Thoroughly entertaining. If you like Action Thrillers, then you will love this book. It’s also a very good follow on from Mick Bose’s first book in this series ‘Hidden Agenda’ which is also definitely worth a read. The main character Dan Roy is very versatile tough guy, with some amazing skills, and as a result the fight scenes are brilliant. Russian mobster Vyalchek Ivanov was used to getting his own way, and Dan Roy was certainly frustrating him. Normally if someone was getting in Val’s way he ...more

Dan Roy fights his way out of the dark!

This is the second full length book featuring Dan Roy who has now left his position as a black ops agent, and is going to have a vacation. However when he sees a woman being kidnapped at an airport he finds himself embroiled in an international plot to cause incalculable damage to America.
I really love the action sequences in the Dan Roy books, they are written in a believable way, and Dan is not portrayed as a very special type of man, and not a superman w

Dark Water is a wonderful read that I couldn't put down. I seriously couldn't put it down. If you're a fan of Jack Reacher, this is a must read!

My Rating: 5 stars

Dan Roy wants to retire from his Black Ops career. (Though one can never really retire from this type of job, right? One can only go on indefinite hiatus or retire from life.)

A woman he recently met is kidnapped in broad daylight. Our hero decides to respond and is drawn into several life-and-death situations, and the overall scheme is tied into "one more case" for his agency.

This was an enjoyable read. I finally figured out why I like these kinds of books: earth-sourced Supermen. They are the e

This is a page turner with some surprise twists. Lots of six against one battles with the hero taking down all opposition. Good guy/automatic killer, Dan, makes the reader wonder, should I respect him or be glad I don't know him.

Dark Water. Mick Bose

Actually, probably the first he has ever had.He briefly has an encounter with a female passenger on his flight. Then he watches her being forcibly pushed into a car. Dan's a civilian now on vacation. Old habits die hard. It's second nature to him. He's a protector. What unfolds is a sinister plot by the Russians to sabotage America's intelligence system. Early detection. Computers, the

Dark Water tells how Dan Roy's attempt to retire from his black ops career leads him into a domestic adventure that includes Mexican gangs, the Russian Mafia, Russian covert operations, and development of a new weapon system by the US. The characters are well described and add a sense of realism to a complex plot. The suspense is continuous, the action is formidable, and the many twists at the end make for an exciting story. The rich detail along the way will make you want to re-read the book t ...more

I had a hard time with all the editing errors and the writing style comes off as very juvenile. The story plot sounded good and I couldn't wait to read it, but then found myself struggling to reach the end. The story is predictable, the characters come off as stupid, and the overall delivery lacking. This might have cut it in the 50's when it was hard to find something to read, much less any good. But in today's age of writing, authors have to bring their 'A' game, and this isn't it. ...more

Not Again

All Dan Roy wants to do is be left alone and go on a long, extended vacation. To leave behind the life he's had for some years as an assassin for the black OPs organization, Intercept. But that's not so easy. He is accidentally, on purpose thrown into yet another operation-although he doesn't know it. He helps a woman he meets at the airport and from there all help breaks lose. Very good reading!

I've read a few of the Dan Roy novels, they are fast paced and plenty of action and yes a bit of fantasy fiction thrown in. We have all read of these One Man Bands and Dan Roy does it in style. Dan Roy a black ops but retired? still putting the bad guys down even when taking a holiday. It's a good read about the right length so you don't get bored, well written and will definitely be reading some more.

Fast paced action and adventure

Dan Roy fils the bill of an action hero in the know and trying to get out of the killing game. His values keep him straight up. The book is a little predictable, but then I like that about military stories. One thing irks a bit: Dan dialogues​ often change to abruptly-the same applies to many scene changes in the book. All in all, a great read.

Dan's the Man!

I liked this book because I found out more about Dan. I read the third book, The Tonkin Protocol, first and this book gave me more about his past. There was loads of action and chases that left the reader breathless. Dan is a complex character and I want to know more about him. He is the ultimate hero.

Enjoyable read

A well written thriller. Plenty of action and fast paced enough to keep the reader enthralled. Even as Dan Roy walks away the reader knows that he attracts the elements that makes for a dangerous lifestyle. So one knows Dan Roy will be back. Mick Bose is an author for readers who enjoy Lee Child

Entertaining and fast paced. This story had action and intrigue coming from all sides. The storyline was quite interesting and had me thinking about what all is going on in our waters! The role of family and friends was displayed again in this story and I loved the roles and twists the female characters brought to the story. I am really enjoying this series and Dan!

Gripping tale of a guy just trying to get a new life after years of military service. There are twists and turns and even clues that you should pick up on. Dan Roy remains a hero and protector through this book.

Thrilling and full of surprising twists and turns, I could not put this book down! I'm a tad bit infatuated with the main character and cheered out loud for him many times. This book did not disappoint, but worked it's way into my heart.

A nice, quick and easy read. Action packed. I read the kindle edition and unfortunately there were many simple grammar and spelling errors which was disappointing eg. one of the characters names interchanged from Jody to Jodie. Not great attention to detail but good story nevertheless.

It starts off very quickly and then I get hit with a poor character flaw, but not really as he makes up for it as I read on. More than read, on I can hardly put it down. Bose ‘s Dan Roy is like Flynn’s - Mitch Rapp and Child’s - Reacher, and that says it all.

Exciting from first page to the very ladt

He was retired. She needed help. Now her daughter was in trouble. He had no choice but to see this thru. What was Phillip? Why was he hiding from work?
E. Middelkoop
It’s a nice story if you’re into this super capable action hero. What really turned me off was the impossible amount of spelling errors. Don’t the author and/or editor have spelling checkers!?
Books should be a medium to learn a language by - not to test your knowledge!

A chance encounter leads Dan into a race against time to find a missing engineer. He is not the only one looking and a deadly race begins. Nicely paced book, the big confrontation at the end was over a bit to quick and clean.

Great Thriller

Set in current time, this thriller is a great story about weaponry that could exist today or in the near future. The tale has a number of twists and turns to you guessing.

This book builds on the first in the series and holds the reader's attention from start to finish. A superb book and another must read.

Couldn't finish it

The idea was a good one but the delivery failed miserably. The editing was horrible. Use spell check next time.
