Vacation Emergency!


Yes- a true vacation emergency: I was clearing brush, scrubbing walls, killing spiders, shoveling dirt, and I had neglected to bring along the right book for the downtime.  The books I had brought along were simply too literary, too pleasant, too dull…    Drastic measures were called for, and I found myself in town at a Barnes and Noble looking over mounds of books worriedly.

Then I saw it! A patron had just told me that it was a “must-read”, so I grabbed it and headed for the checkout.  Vacation saved!

Frederick Forsyth’s newest book, The Cobra, takes on an unusual premise: what if the U.S. President decides to throw caution to the wind and break the back of the cocaine cartels?  Can it be done? How would it be done?  And since it must be a totally secret operation, only 1 man will know everything.  That man is the Cobra.
