Strike Force Delta : This is a bittersweet book, for several reasons, not the least of which is that I knew while I was writing it, that it would be the last of the series. Don’t ask me why. The series sold great, is still selling, now a few years later, and I still receive royalty checks from the sales of the books and dozens of Superhawks fan letters every month. So why cancel it? Again, I really have no idea.
This book is also about revenge and how it can be a two-edged sword. There’s no need to get into details about the plot: it has the usual twists and turns, and for anyone who hates the Al Qaeda mooks as much as I do, then it’s a fantasy come true.
The publisher let me tack on a last-second ending – my way of leaving the door open that the Ghosts will return at some point. And that might still happen. Watch this space for details.
One really bad mistake happens at the end, though. A publishing error; a sentence about the AC-130 gunship that should have been deleted wasn’t, and it confuses everyone who reads it. Not a great way to end the series.
