Unbelievable story line, cliche Vietnam vet references, not sure why I read it right through.
No more by this author for me I'm afraid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable mystery, love, spy story. 7 Jun. 2013
By Barrie m - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is quite a good read with some parts that had me laughing out loud. The author makes many comments about American politicians and CIA which are probably true and which are most amusing. The involvement with Cuban gangsters and Fidel Castro,s Cuba is similarly well conceived. I am not sure it was intended but I found the book remarkably amusing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent book to wile away the time... 22 Jan. 2014
By Don Kidwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Book started getting a bit more interesting around chapter 3 on. Author has a flair for nautical knowledge, settings and character descriptions tho lacking a bit in dialogue and plot credibility. Protagonist was rough around the edges and incorrigible making him difficult to warm up to initially but I began liking him more when he related his humbling experience as a shoe salesman. Action sequences were always exciting, the boat in the storm scene at the midway point being spectacular. Some of my favorite lines from the book include "The air was so thick, I'd have to use Braille to find my face" "I felt like I needed to call the psychic hotline for guidance" and "How appropriate that they had named a mean and inconsiderate storm after my former wife". Overall,a good book that I'm glad to have had the opportunity to have read.

5.0 out of 5 stars a protagonist that holds your attention 29 Jun. 2013
By Thomas A. Bullard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Looking for a protagonist that holds your attention as the story explodes into a venture of the pursued and the pursuing. It commences with our former stock exchange operative, Jack Steven, enjoying a life of bliss aboard his great old sailboat moored in a Miami marina. With a feel of Bogart noir, enter the fem fatale element resulting in our hero's idealistic life suddenly transformed into one episode after another of nerve-racking escapism for the reader through the Florida Keys, Cuba, and other dreamed about exotic Caribbean islands. A great mingling of 007 like excitements and the Chandler hard-boiled mindset awaits you in John Beckman's Tropical Knights. I cannot wait to read Tropical Daze the next installment as no great protagonist as Jack Steven should be allowed to fade with only one outing. Too good to put down, savor it as you read because it will end too quickly but Tropical Daze awaits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good adventure story. 15 Jun. 2013
By Les - Published on Amazon.com

I believe this is a well written adventure story and I enjoyed it. The story itself was interesting and I really appreciated the sailing scenes that were presented clearly, but in such a manner that a landlubber could understand them. I also liked the light humor injected into the drama. While there was sufficient action to keep me turning the pages, there were a few times (like during flashbacks) that I found myself really skimming paragraphs and pages to get on with the story.
5.0 out of 5 stars Tropical Knights 20 Mar. 2017

I just read Tropical Knights. I couldn't put the book down. Exciting and enthralling to say the least. It's full of intrigue and surprises. I can't wait for the next book about the man, Jack Stevens. He'll take you on the high seas in the tropics. The author's wit and ability to keep you interested makes it so special.
Hats off to the author, John Beckman for a great read.
