Book Details

Terrorists have attacked the harbor of Galveston

"Terrorists have attacked the harbor of Galveston, Texas, where a dirty bomb was detonated next to a container ship, resulting in major damage to the container ship, and the radiation released by the explosion could be disastrous. We have no further information at this time except that the president and the head of Homeland Security have pushed the terror alert to RED!

Andre Petrov, a successful security company executive, forms the Oceans Reconnaissance Commission and Asso-ciates (O.R.C.A.) to provide coastal and port protection against global terrorism, drug trafficking, and environ-mental issues. Retired Navy SEAL Commander Reef Jo-hansson and the beautiful Alexis Mikos, a former Greek Secret Service agent, plus a handpicked group of security and computer specialists lead O.R.C.A. against the terror-ists. Using cutting-edge ballistics technology and specially designed and powerful Orca boats, they attempt to foil a diabolical terrorist plot funded and contrived by a vengeance-seeking North Korean family and a wealthy Iranian mullah.
