Questions with the author:

Q: How do you come with the ideas for your novels?
A: Two ways: 1) My readers, and 2) current events. My readers want to know how Cal and the gang would handle real world situations. Based on research, reader input and my style, a story is born.

Q: Is there a theme you try to weave throughout the Corps Justice series?
A: I'd say there are a couple things. 1) take care of your comrades, 2) believe in something bigger than yourself, and 3) Semper Fidelis

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good sequel. 10 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Council of Patriots (Book 2 of the Corps Justice Series) I suppose it is fair to say that I didn't enjoy this as much as Book 1 in the series but I think that MAY be down to the fact that Book 1 was VERY good. The writing style flows nicely, the new characters fit into the story nicely and are believable, even the technology is believable.
Despite saying I didn't enjoy it as much as Book 1 I do want to see then next in the series as soon as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compromised politician, national intrigue, Marines saving the day, Semper Fi!! 25 Mar 2013
By Rapid 1 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For those of us who wish the world was like it was 100 years ago, this is a great read. The good guys are good and the bad guys are bad. The story line is well developed and the characters have detail. Anyone who has been in the military will be able to identify with the way the team members rely on each other to 'get the job done.'

Interesting story line and some plot twists keep you interested.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Leap Forward 25 Dec 2012
By Michael Thomas - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Back to War showed a lot of promise, and Council of Patriots delivers. The second Cooper book displays the same solid character development and plot strength as it's predecessor, but the writing has improved remarkably. The author brings the bond between the brave men and women who serve our country to life. This is a great story: fast-paced, dynamic, and suspenseful. Council of Patriots is a fun read, and I look forward to the next installment of the Corps Justice series.

4.0 out of 5 stars ON HIS WAY TO BECOMING TOM CLANCY 2 Aug 2013
By Vickie Woodard - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did I spell Clancy right?
Well, it took Tom awhile to become the great author he is today, and I believe this author will need to work and develop before he can attain Tom Clancy's stature, the respect and notoriety we all have for the man.
This is a political novel. l won't say thriller because I was never on the edge of my seat, but there was backstabbing; there were turnovers; plans were made that took generations to accomplish and yet there was no hurry.
The plans actually began shortly after VJ day, Victory in Japan. WWII didn't end all at once, you know. First there was Victory in Europe, then Victory in Japan. Since Japan hadn't signed the Geneva Convention and treated prisoners of war worse than ¿*¢* many more prisoners of war lost their lives due to torture, strange diseases and lack of food.
Truthfully, most Japanese soldiers ate only a little better than their prisoners did.
This book talks about a group of Japanese officers who would have been tried for their war crimes, for getting their jollies by playing Marquis de Sade with prisoners. They changed their names and got away with it for many, many years.
After the war these men continued to meet together because they had only one thing on their minds: REVENGE.
When they grew too old to accomplish this themself they passed their goal to their sons. As these sons grew, you get the idea.
One of these sons, Ishi, has gone to Harvard with a U.S. Senator's son, Brad. Ishi's family is very wealthy, having made their money in electronics and gaming. Ishi invites Brad to spend some time at his family's hotel in Las Vegas, all for free. After all they're buddies.
Brad wakes up the next morning covered in blood with a dismembered blond next to him. She WAS just his type. Brad doesn't remember a thing. Ishi tells Brad not to worry, he'll take care of everything.
Little does Brad know that this is just one time out of many that an influential person has been caught in a compromising position while several Asians walk around snapping photo after photo to document it.
Nor does Brad know his father is involved in a group of veterans, mostly
ex-Marines, who have worked together to prevent Americans from being harmed.
Sure the armed forces fight America's wars, but who defends a single American when only a handful of people from another country gangs up on him.
Little does this Council of Patriots know that more than one person is being picked on and more than a handful are creating the harm. By the end of the book...why should I spoil it.
This book moves slowly at first. There's a twist at the ending...dang, the last three books I've read have had a twist at the end. This one hit so hard I thought I was going to get whiplash.
It will be interesting to see the council ride again.
