- Customer Reviews:
Kent knows his subject at first hand and the expertise shows on the page: high stakes, pounding tension and the best dogfights put on paper. A lot of thrillers these days, you come away feeling like you’ve been in a simulator. Gordon Kent straps you into the real thing. Enjoy the ride!’
‘Flying, spying and dying – Night Trap is the real straight Navy stuff. Better strap yourself to the chair. I loved it.’
‘Tom Clancy used to have the high-tech military thriller stakes all to himself but now Gordon Kent has entered the field, and how. There’s action on all fronts with Alan Craik at the heart of it, whether it’s a carrier group in the Med confronting a rogue Russian sub commander, mounting a rescue mission for a captured CIA agent in Africa, or helping combat a high-level conspiracy in Washington. Non-stop … a smoking gun of a story.’
‘Told with all the authority of inside knowledge … an absorbing tale of international skulduggery.’
‘Consistently excellent … loaded with gunfights, snappy dialogue and the aerial hijinks of supersonic jet fighters. The high testosterone doses satisfy, but best is the complex and clever web of motive Kent weaves for the mole.’
About the Author
Gordon Kent is the pseudonym of a father-and-son writing team, both of whom have extensive personal experience in the US Navy. Both are former Intelligence officers and both served as aircrew. The son earned his Observer wings in S-3 Vikings during the Gulf conflict. After service in the Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, Pacific and Africa, he left active duty in 1999.

Meanwhile Al Craik and his long time friend Mike Dukas of NCIS are trying to figure out why CIA wants Jerry. It turns out there's a rogue operation going on. I won't tell you what happens, but it's exciting and Jerry turns out to be a good guy after all. There's a hint at the end that Al may soon have to retire from Naval intelligence. I, for one, hope his retirement is long postponed.
