Angley is a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel and Special Agent with the Office of Special Investigations (OSI – similar to the NCIS). He served on five command tours, and in his last assignment as Commander of OSI Region 8, at Air Force Space Command, he was fond of saying, “If it entered or exited Earth’s atmosphere, I had a dog in the fight!”
Earlier this month I asked him what he was reading. His reply:
I recently finished reading Joel Rosenberg’s The Last Jihad. As you can imagine I am drawn to thrillers not only because of my background as a USAF Special Agent, but because it’s also what I enjoy writing. The Last Jihad was published in 2003 (yes, I get around to new books when they’re not so new anymore!). It’s a great political thriller, a super page-turner, and it takes place primarily in Colorado, where I live. It poses the very frightening question, “What would happen if terrorists obtained nuclear weapons?” It’s loaded with many great twists and turns, international intrigue, and tons of action. Just what the doctor ordered!Visit Mike Angley's website, and find him at FaceBook, Twitter, MySpace, and PoliceLink.
I am currently reading a romance novel. Now, I don’t normally read romance stories, but Merline Lovelace’s The Last Bullet intrigued me for two reasons. The author is a retired USAF Colonel and a former Wing Commander (like me). In her Cleo North trilogy, of which The Last Bullet is the final story, she features an Air Force OSI Special Agent heroine. There are not too many novels featuring the Air Force OSI (other than Merline’s and mine, and I only know of about two others), so I thought I’d give it a read. It’s a romantic/suspense novel, so there’s still plenty of action and adventure to whet my whistle. I’m enjoying it thoroughly. Go Air Force!
