Colonel Simon Alexander, a famous African mercenary, languishes away in Black Beach Prison. Failing health makes an unsupported escape impossible, and the diplomatic process is failing as fast as his health. In the face of all this, a backer with deep pockets is putting a team together to get him out.
Commanding this team is none other than forty-three-year-old Rhys Munroe, a tough and cunning Grey. Composed of one black and one white Special Forces operator, the Special Operators Unit known as the Greys can go anywhere, kill everything, and disappear into the grey mist. Their combined skills are far greater than the sum of their own abilities.
Armed with massive hardware, ammunition, manpower, and a secret weapon, Munroe and his team concoct a daring master plan to free Simon. Though they are battle-hardened soldiers, they are well aware that the international mission is dangerous and could go awry at any time. But the Greys lived by one very important commandment: Thou shalt not fall.

Africa As It Really Is
By Bobber on July 17, 2011
If you’ve ever been “in-country”, “boots on the ground” or “dry foot” in a blistering African or Middle Eastern non-democratic country (with or without weapons), if you’ve ever had to bribe your way out of an airport or across a border, if you’ve ever had all four wheels stolen off your vehicle in some red-mud jungle village or if you’ve ever experienced the joys of Mefloquine withdrawals-this book is for you. If you can only imagine such fun, you’ll still enjoy the action.
If you groove on Harry Potter or Ewoks -not so much.
This first novel by an author who knows all about foreign “contracting” (maybe not so much about flying brooms) could have used some more careful editing but it’s pretty hard to put down once the action starts.
At the end, you’ll be smugly congratulating “The Good Guys” on pulling off a good caper despite everything that modern Africa can put in their way. You’ll probably want to pour a large drink and light up a fine Havana Puro too.
