"The Delta Solution is an action-packed novel dealing with the Somali pirates operating off the southerly reaches of the lawless East African republic on the Indian Ocean.
For the past three years, these heavily armed tribal brigands have been capturing and holding for ransom massive cargo ships, especially oil tankers, and violently demanding millions of dollars for their return. Pirating out of the tiny Somalian village of Haradheere has become a very lucrative, dangerous business, so much so that the village has its own Stock Exchange with a reputed $78 million cash, all in crisp $100 bills, in the town vault. And each time an owner pays big for the return of their ship, the pirates immediately do it again, enraging the Pentagon more and more by the day.
That is, until the "Somali Marines" make a big mistake, seizing at gun point two United States ships and demanding a $15 million ransom for their return.
Hero Mack Bedford, previously encountered in Diamondhead and Intercept, is deployed to SEAL Team 10 to form The Delta Platoon. His objective: obliterate the Somali Marines in the middle of the Indian Ocean, at all costs, once and for all."
What we thought: This was a fantastic book! It is a gripping page-turner that I found extremely hard to put down:) I would say The Delta Solution is the perfect summer thriller. The topic is current and believable, which makes it even more interesting to read. Robinson's writing style really gets the reader involved and wanting more and it was so easy to get completely lost in this story. This book would make a fantastic Father's Day gift for any Dad who loves to read. ABCD Diaries gives The Delta Solution by Patrick Robinson an A+!
