Mayhem by colt45

Description: Dan survived ten years of the war as a U.N. Special Forces officer and retired with his wife to Tampa to start a charter boat business. His wife was killed soon after and for the next five years his life has been nothing but work, war buddies and memories he wishes he could run away from. Into his life comes Antigua Delmar, the latest in a seemingly endless line of teen pop stars, destroying his numb but comfortable existence and setting into motion events that will someday change the world.

If you've ever read and loved Modesty Blaise, watched Emma Peel and John Steed, read or watched James Bond or enjoyed the tales of Miles Vorkosigan: this is for you.

Fast paced, outrageous action, some sex, a little romance. Well written, well edited. Technically I'd say in the top 10% of the stories on the site, and a very very enjoyable escapist read. Don't
look for great character development, most of the actors are cardboard cutouts, but in this kind of story you'd not really expect anything else.

I had a lot of fun reading it, and I will be looking for more in this writer's 'Mayhem' universe.

US Army veteran turned charter captain/ boat bum meets music diva and chaos ensues.
Have to admit it - the formula doesn't do colt45's latest effort justice. As usual, the story has great characters, a plotline with plenty of curves and good heat.
To make it clear, this is a story and not a stroke. It's set in the near future and it's a future that makes sense. You're not required to suspend reality which helps.
Our hero's legit, though he's flawed like many of the best ones. You end up wanting to drink with him and hang out at his favorite dive ( and sleep with his women).
Enjoy the read - it's shorter than many of the author's previous efforts. Not a complaint but you can finish it in one sitting.
