This is another exceptional novel by Mick Bose. He definitely knows how to write a thoroughly entertaining Action Thriller. This is the third book in this series, and I’ve really enjoyed each one of them. I quite enjoyed that there are a couple of twists in the story that I wasn’t expecting. Dan Roy just can’t help himself with it comes to helping someone in trouble, and he seems to have an acute sense of danger. So when he see’s Kimberly Smith is corned in an alley by four men in Myanmar, he im ...more

What a great story! It immerses you in the country of Myanmar (Burma) and you are thrown into the middle of the political and cultural upheaval that is progressing to not necessarily a positive end. We have to dodge drones, bullets, car crashes, ambushes, beatings, and all other sorts of unpleasant situations which keep the story and the characters constantly on the move. The experience of being in the middle of such an emerging culture is actually incredible. This story is thrilling, suspensefu ...more

Did I like it?
Yes, but…This is book 3 of a series. You can read it as a standalone. You get the necessary info about his backgrounds. About what makes the hero tick. Maybe you get more if you’ve read it as part of the series. Which I haven’t. Asian setting, suspense, thriller. I like that.
What I didn’t like
My standard problems with these kinds of books. 1. The hero is unbeatable in the long run. He always gets out. Even if his chances are miniscule. 2. The violence has a tendency to get over-des

I have read several books with ‘protocol’ in their titles lately. According to the various definitions, protocol is said to be a set of rules and regulations to be followed in certain situations. However, from the Gulf of Tonkin to Yangon, things are happening that seem to have no set rules. Who can you trust? My other question is, how do all of these guys carry all that ammunition around with them all the time??? I recommend this book for those who know what it is like and want to relive it an ...more

Tonkin protocol mystery

Unrelenting car chases and gun fights. How many killed? Four sides or more if you count individual's self-interests. A map of the countryside would help. A listing of names, titles and affiliations too. What is the Tonkin protocol? I only read the book for the title thinking it would relate to the gulf of Tonkin incident. Fooled me. The story got lost in the action.

I need a "Dan Roy" in my life!

Action packed with just the right amount of romance and redemption in it. Neither Dan Roy or Mick Bose disappoint in this thriller with a mystery villain that I didn't figure out, which almost never happens. An exciting, adventure with both a terrific hero and courageous heroine, great plot, gorgeous scenery, and hope for a battle scarred weary warrior. Mr Bose is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.

Lots of action. Dan Roy has luck beyond

Even my ability to suspend belief. I lost count of his single-handed slaughter. Dozens, easily. Made all the Marvel superhero dudes look wimpy.

There are more books in this series, but it will be a while before I spend any money on them. So why 4 stars? The plot line held my interest, and I wanted to know how they ultimately survived the very real threats.

This kind of book is a good diversion but not made for a steady diet.

Dan Roy fans will enjoy this book.

I have enjoyed all the previous Dan Roy books but found this one heavy going at first. The second half for me was much better and was less confusing. I'm still looking forward to the next adventure .. Mick Bose is a very talented writer and Dan Roy is a complex man, this combination keeps you wanting more. If you are new to this series I recommend that you read the earlier books first.

Non stop adventure and action with a new dimension to Dan. I loved this book...the story, the characters and the twist I did not see coming. I did not like the very ending, but I am hopeful that we see certain characters again bc I really liked the three of them.

I read the first four Dan stories in 2.5 days and I am not ready to stop. Each book takes us to a new country with a new backstory and new intriguing government aspect and I love it!

Thrills and Spills

This book surprised me because it didn't seem like my kind of read. I was enthralled by the characters as well as the plot. Dan was captivated by Kim who needed his help and she got caught up in the life of a small girl who embedded herself into her heart. I had never read one of Mick Bose's books before, but I am going to read more of his books.

The author has a good knowledge of special ops training. I do find though that the main character seems to escape death or injury a little too much. His settings of the events in the book are described well to give you a good feeling for the environment the story is set in. With that said I do enjoy reading the books. Fast paced and well written.

Fast paced action just as a real thriller should be. Couldn't put away even though middle of the night just had to keep going same as Dan Roy. This is a Hero. Looking forward to reading more of Mick Bose books. Definitely my type of writer..keep up the good work.

Jungle Fever

Nonstop action for thriller junkies like me. Despicable bad guys, innocents and soldiers of conflicting armies. From the jungles to the affluent streets of Myanmar. Never a dull moment.

A fast paced thriller

2 days of non stop action. One of the fastest paced stories I have read in some time. More action and gun play and explosions to keep the adrenaline flowing.

A cartoon hero that can do no wrong.

A totally cartoonist take on a super bulky conflicted secret agent having to heroically save the captured female agent from an evil nemesis.

Dan Roy is a one man army.
Nothing phases him. He will not quit until he achieves his goal.
Will Maya and Kim be his Achilles heel?

Dan Roy's friend is kidnapped and he goes through hell and high water to rescue her. Just when you think you know the ending, the plot changes. Great Story.

A good read however, hard to phantom one guy surviving all of the action
Still a great writer and story.

Save your money. Single handed kills all of the bad guys. All he need is a red cape. Never seen so many bad guys shooting at a person and he knows where all of the shot are coming from and can duck in time. Sorry BS.
