Blackwater by Paul Vincent Jacuzzi has an irresistible appeal to fans of military thrillers. When nuclear materials from the Cold War era that are capable of unleashing unimaginable destruction in the world go missing in North Africa, Dalton Drake is tasked to track and recover them. The former CSIS agent is the best operator for the job and by teaming with other agencies, the mission should be smooth, but then Drake has former enemies who are after him, the distraction of a former lover, and his own secrets that can stand in the way. Time isn't on his side as terrorists are on the move and are capable of carrying out their sinister plan any moment from now. Can he and his team stop them before it is too late?

Crafted in enticing prose and in a style that is cinematic, this international military thriller will keep readers on edge as they follow the protagonist who races across the Mediterranean to stop terrorists with a deadly weapon. Fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher will adore Blackwater's hero, a character that is physically fit, attractive to women, and intelligent. The story moves fast, filled with unpredictable moments and twists. Paul Vincent Jacuzzi has the extraordinary ability to infuse life into the setting and create characters that are believable and complex. The conflict is of great magnitude and strong motivation is written into the characters. Blackwater is a magnificent tale that is intricately plotted and intelligently accomplished; it is deftly narrated and utterly affecting.
