“From start to finish, Deadly Savage is a fresh and complete book—highly recommended to fans of thrillers, specifically of action-packed stories concerning political intrigue.” Foreword Reviews
When militants invade the Belarusian State University in Minsk, Peter Savage and his father are caught in the crossfire. Held hostage by gunmen who look suspiciously like Russian soldiers, Peter uncovers a deadly plot to kill thousands of innocent civilians—and lay the blame at the feet of the United States government. In a desperate attempt to avoid a global war, Commander James Nicolaou and Peter are called to the front lines of a sinister campaign, and the stakes have never been higher.
