Just finished Arctic Event. Loved the book but was dismayed by the cover picture. Having flown the B29/Tu4 for over 600 hours I'm somewhat familiar with the aircraft. The wreckage shown is most certainly NOT a B29/Tu4, which wouldn't have a row of windows, but a transport such as a DC6 or Russian equivalent. The text refers to figures passing in front of light emanating from the windows which could only be from the nose/cockpit or the blister behind the wing, not the area occupied by the team. Mr. Cobb,better research please.

When will we see a new Amanda Garret book?!? The newest book has already been published in German. Where's the English version!?

The Arctic Event. Good reading but surprised that with Cobb's background he errs in calling a Coast Guard cutter (ice breaker) a "USS" instead of "USCGC". Designation of USS (United States Ship) is for U.S. Navy vessels.

I'm wondering if James Cobb has considered self-publishing on the Kindle? I believe he could set the price (I'd be willing to pay the equivalent of "normal" fees - I'm sure others would as well).
I don't think self-publication would preclude an eventual print run either.
Just a thought. Has this already been discussed?

the fifth book was published in German, I just found it after doing a little digging. its for sale on amazon. to bad i can't read german. this is the blurb after i ran it through a translator:
The fifth volume of the military thriller series with Captain Amanda Garrett is about a coup attempt in Indonesia's island state, which could lead to a bloody and brutal ethnic conflict. Amanda Garrett and Sea Fighters are the last hope of thousands of innocents.
The book is called Duell in fremden Gewässern (Duel in Foreign Waters). Put that german title into amazon's search and it will come up. or you can put it in amazon.de for the full german listing.

What's the current status with the 5th Amanda Garret book Phantom Force? I heard it's been published in German already?

I enjoyed the Garrett thriller series and am now reading the C.S.Forester Hornblower series. In the third book (Hotspur) on page 180 Forester uses the phrase (Chooser Of The Slain). Is this a coincidence ? You must be a fan of the Hornblower books.
