A nation on the brink of war.
A conspiracy that threatens the globe.
And one military family, caught in the middle, fighting for freedom.
From a secretive jungle-covered island in the Pacific, to the sands of the Middle East. From the smog-filled alleyways of China, to the passageways of a US Navy destroyer. The War Planners series follows different members of the military and intelligence community as they uncover a Chinese plot to attack America.
Chinese billionaire Cheng Jinshan and his wicked spy, Lena Chou, are moving their pieces on the board. Deception and misinformation are everywhere.
Now, in order to save America, the leaders in the CIA and Pentagon have set up a secretive task force. Their mission: to thwart Jinshan's plans, and prevent a global war.
Each member of the Manning family has a critical role to play. Technologist David Manning is taken from his family's home and thrown onto a special CIA task force. Ex-SEAL Chase Manning is sent to team up with a Marine Corps special operations unit. Admiral Charles Manning leads a US Carrier Strike Group, filled with America's latest and greatest naval technology. And Lieutenant Commander Victoria Manning is the officer in charge of a helicopter detachment on the navy destroyer, the USS Farragut - the only ship that stands in the way of a Chinese onslaught.
Praise for Andrew Watts and The War Planners series:
"Having read a number of the writers whose focus is on military and special-ops adventure, this author manages to capture a bit of everything seen in the genre by crafting an interesting and artful blend of the tactical and technical - interwoven with a compelling aura of suspense... all wrapped into one package." - 5-Star Review
"I now add Andrew Watts to my favorite authors list: Vince Flynn (r.i.p.), Brad Thor, and David Baldacci, as well as Robin Cook, James Patterson, and Michael Crichton (also r.i.p.). Highly recommended!" - 5-Star Review
"The writing is top-notch, the characters are amazingly developed, and the story moves so fast that you just can't put them down. I just finished the 3rd book in the series, and I honestly don't remember a storyline that has so completely captured me in this genre before. Very well-done, full of great detail for the technical sticklers, but not overly technical so those that just want to enjoy the story can... A most excellent read!" - 5-Star Review
