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.

Whatever happened to James Cobb? Someone told me he had died. Is that correct?
I so enjoyed his sea stories.

James, I recently finished the Arctic Event. Great read, fast paced and interesting situations.
I am a concept artist and illustrator and came up with something to illustrate the drama- ecsdesignvfx.com /blog/tu4.jpg
Keep up the great work.

I want the Amanda Garret books available to the kindle. Only route 66 seems to be available now. Please... I would buy them all. Doesn't your publisher react to this sort of query????

I just read "The First Cup of Coffee War" and was impressed. Not that far into the future. I retired from a program called "Talon Shield" and found you writing very much on the mark. Thanks for the read. Where did you get the background info?

I just finished tonight "The Artic Event". I am living in Montreal Canada and I am working in finance. Not related at all with history,or military studies or work at all. However, I want to let know how much I absolutly enjoy reading your book. Reading it with enthousiasm from beginning to the end (meanwhile taking the bus transport going to work) .
This is for me one of the most passionate triller I have reed so far.
Only just one critic: At the end I would have make Mr Smyslov living here in America and be with Randi ... :)
I am a little sad that you left him with his problem in Russia after all he has done. From the start I felt he was a good and should be more upgraded ,on an other I am really glas that he did not died
Also please know that I really really enjoy your book,the way it is writting and facility to leave and to come back because of the short chapter that brought us to an other caracter/event.
The history and the military part that is a mistery for all of us was very informative.
have a good day
Johanne Mathieu ,
