More About the Author

Welcome to the author page for Connor Fitzgerald.

Connor has been writing now for a few years and has four publications to his name;

A Brave New Squad

In Each Other We Trust

The Enemy Within

and The B-Squad

All Connor's books are written about an organisation called The B-Squad that selects ordinary men and women from the information they have posted on the internet. Social Networking sites are used to profile individuals who are then recruited into an organisation that fights terrorism. Their primary objective is to cut off supplies of money, weapons, and explosives from getting into the hands of terrorist groups.

Connor uses modern real world events to provide a strong element of realism and drawing from his own life experiences each book is a mix of fact and fiction.

Each of Connor's books can be enjoyed as a story on its own or as part of the series which is a roller coaster ride of sex, espionage, intrigue and non-stop action.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Thoroughly Enjoyable Read 5 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't get caught up with the 1 star reviews from the idiots who bought this thinking it was written by someone else.. This is as I suggest `A Thoroughly Enjoyable Read.'

There isn't a great deal of character development, but I didn't mind that and I expect that would come later in the story. The plot isn't meant to be realistic, its meant to be a fun and enjoyable, I mean who watches an action movie and says, "OMG that couldn't happen in real life!"

Like a good Hollywood Blockbuster this is aimed at those who love action and light entertainment and what you get is action from chapter one, dead bad guys, gunfights, and plenty of thrills. This is escapism at its best and for those who do love to fantasize. The main story is that ordinary people are selected from social media to be called upon to fight terrorism, what a concept! Imagine that when you are banging on about the world on Facebook next time. You could be the next hero.

I have already downloaded the next installment in this intriguing story and I can honestly say I really enjoyed this one, especially the big twist at the end! I didn't rate this as 5 Star for the simple reason that this is no literary work of art; there are issues with the writing but who cares its great fun and easy to read.

If you're looking for a fun fast read, and don't mind guns and violence, do yourself a favour and give this a go. The action unfolds at breakneck pace, and straight away from the off so no messing around trying to devise a plot.

To sum up this is a fast-paced novel with some funny bits, explosive action and a little comedy thrown in for good measure.

Great value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars not great, maybe ok. 3 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is ok but it`s full of grammar errors that a primary school child could have avoided. It's also full of factual inaccuracies. For instance the description of the weapons at the start of the book. The M249 is not a .50 calibre weapon and it's not called a SAW because it can "SAW through people" SAW is short for squad automatic weapon and it's a 5.56mm calibre weapon. These types of errors are littered through the book and a little bit of research could have avoided these mistakes, makes it quite difficult to enjoy. Think I'll avoid the rest of the series

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic read! 28 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
when I began reading this book I thought the beginning was a little slow, but believe me that doesn't last long, what a brilliant read, it is like four different adventures in one book. you get to learn about the entire squad individually as you read on. I read it in one because I couldn't put it down, I strongly recommend this book to readers who enjoy action books, you will enjoy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!!! 23 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The 1st of a 3 book set, This book is a fantastic opening to the series about the B squad.

I loved how this book sets the scene early on and pulls the reader in, the authors writing style and the many twists and turns in this book are fantastic and keep you guessing what could happen next, from start to finish.

I would recommend this book to any reader because; its a fantastic read, it pulls u in
When you have finished the book you have to carry on with book 2

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - Typical SAS covert ops book 6 Sept. 2013
By Steve48
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a bit sceptical at first but once you get through the scene setting and set up phase, it's in the full SAS style Black Ops genre.
My kindle is frozen at the moment and I'm eagerly awaiting reading the next books in the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Brave New Squad 14 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is poorly written. The spelling, grammar and use of adverbs without the "ly" on them is lazy. Missing words and poor characterisation distracts from the story. I won't be ordering the sequels.
