I am completing the third novel in a series of Joe Anderson adventures: The Navigator: A Perilous Passage, Evasion at Sea and The Navigator II: Irish Revenge. In the latest story, The Navigator III: Repossession, the CIA sends Joe to Cuba to sneak aboard their seized and impounded ship and surreptitiously sail it out of Havana Harbor. A bold and dangerous mission turns comical when Joe’s girlfriend Mary and her zany friend Frances decide on their own to take a tour to Havana, discover Joe’s whereabouts and present him with the problem of saving them while trying to steal the ship from the Cuban authorities. I hope to make it available by mid-November –a good time for buying Christmas gifts :>)
The Navigator II: Irish Revenge is now available at Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle versions. It is a sequel to The Navigator.
Posing as a recreational sailor in Northern Ireland in the summer of 2015, undercover agent Joe Anderson falls for fiery young Fiona Brennan and, with the aid of her brother, infiltrates the Real Irish Republican Army. In his efforts to save her from the violence and hatred of religious and political discord, Joe is caught up in a web of deadly intrigue. Finding himself alienated from his CIA handlers, he has only his native Irish friend, Big Ryan, to count on. Joe learns much about the long, bitter history and finds that in Northern Ireland the desire for deadly vengeance is far from over.
In this adventure/thriller, which also relates much of the history of sectarian dissent, Joe Anderson encounters an apprentice bomb maker, an alcoholic former priest, a wealthy unionist couple, a retired and embittered policeman of the Royal Ulster Constabulary, and a number of terrorist thugs bent on violence and mayhem.
Writing this sequel to The Navigator: A Perilous Passage, Evasion at Sea, Steve Coleman employs his intimate knowledge of Northern Ireland along with his experience sailing offshore of the Irish and Scottish coasts.
