Executive Intent by Dale Brown

“Executive Intent” by Dale Brown:

New President, Joseph Gardner, knows the way he wants to strengthen and maintain America’s dominant presence in the world. It takes an increase in aircraft carriers. This leaves the budget too tight to pursue any space weapons systems and some countries are noticing America’s vulnerabilities.

When two power hungry counties, China and Russia, join forces against the US after an incident, much quick decision making has to be done. The fundamental differences in the President and the Vice President’s beliefs are shown and tough decisions made. His female secretary of state has an agenda all her own and it may or may not be in the country’s best interest.

The standoff between the US forces and Chinese and Russian forces are tense and strategic. Space is seemingly up for grabs to the country with the most power. The President has to fight a political battle as well as making the tough calls in the battle between the US, Russia, and China.

Loaded with technology and politics…lots of cool gadgets and some good action! This book pulls you along through the story for an intense ride.
