Execution Of Justice By Patrick Dent
Patrick Dent

Filled with nonstop action, adventure and psychological intrigue, Execution of Justice is a men's adventure tale - the story of Special Forces operative John Drake - a man who delivers his own unique brand of justice.

When an international terrorist organization kidnaps a US Congressman's daughter, Drake is called to action. Quickly, Drake confirms his hunch about an operation that threatens the entire free world.

Armed with only his wits, Drake races through a sinister underworld maze of adventure in this heart-pulsing action book. His target is The Beast - Tartus. Drake is working for DNE (Does Not Exist), leaving him alone to track the most powerful enemy he has ever faced.

Still haunted by his past actions, Drake must once again assume the most terrifying identity of all - his own.

Meanwhile, the stakes rise. The world nears WW III as a CIA plot to incite a war unfolds. When Drake's mission collides with the CIA, he becomes our only hope to avoid the slaughter of millions.

Execution of Justice is not only an action packed book with characters that jump right off the page - it also asks daring, provocative questions about the very nature of good and evil.

Patrick Dent



"“This military thriller is a gritty, fast paced, all-action story that is not easy to put down, almost from the first page. John Drake, the young but very resourceful hero endures a tough boyhood, dominated by a cruel and ruthless father, until a lethal teenage encounter lands him in a covert ops training unit. The hero’s exceptional talents, together with those of his companion soldier, eventually result in his leading a two-man commando team ready and able to overcome any terrorist type situation placed in their way."In parallel the book covers a murky, often lethal, unfriendly situation developing in another continent, which clearly needs someone special to put things right. The subsequent exploits of the two young super-heroes could occasionally overstretch a reader’s belief, in the hands of a lesser craftsman, but the writer knows his subject and locations well and the narrative doesn’t falter. The intrepid duo plan and execute a hazardous rescue attempt, involving an attack on what seems to be an invincible, well defended target. Namely a sinister desert fortress presided over the chief villain in the story, who is a very bad person indeed."The CIA, perhaps fashionably nowadays, appears to come in for some rough treatment by the author and as you’d expect, a dastardly plan to start World War III is fortunately thwarted.  "The parallel plot treatment is very effective, as long as you can avoid having to put the book down for too long. All in all, the book is excitingly well written, with excellent characterization, so if you enjoy a good blood and thunder experience, get your copy now."" -- Tony Thorne MBE.
""What transforms a man into a killing machine? How does he preserve his humanity amid the barbaric demands of duty and freedom? "These are just some of the questions posed by Patrick Dent as wholesome all American small town boy, John Drake draws on the suppressed pain and heart ache of his youth to be a man who can make a difference. "Set in the Nixon years of the Vietnam war, a rare venting of his inner rage, sets Drake on a path to Morocco to rescue a very important daughter, abducted for the skin trade. The plot is as gritty as the desert setting of the climax, as Drakes ice cool talent for torture is revealed in graphic detail. The dialogue crackles with tension and urgency as the clock ticks down on the crucial mission. "It would be easy to despise our hero Drake, as he takes to killing with a calm professionalism but Dent sensitively chronicles his early days to show how his strong and pragmatic morals evolved. Drake emerges as a man of great loyalty with an unshakeable sense of right and wrong. The best friend or ally you could wish for but equally the worst enemy to make… "If you want a fast paced action packed thriller with strong characters, this hits the target. Not for the squeamish, but a journey through life and death that commands your attention."" -- Colin Kirby.
