Former government and military advisor, J.T. Patten has written a “blacker than black” thriller in his new black operations series, Safe Havens. Readers who enjoy classic military thriller characters like Mitch Rapp and Jack Reacher will tear through pages as these black ops soldiers become unwittingly embroiled in unsanctioned government programs to stage proxy attacks and spoof terror events on U.S. soil to jumpstart military spending. The story is permeated with Patten’s experience in supporting covert activities. Readers will experience jaw dropping twists and ultimately question who is good or bad in the blurred lines of morally ambiguous national security, as a fallible intelligence specialist, Sean Havens, enters the world of terrorism and espionage set ups.
