“Don Bentley does it again and does it well with Forgotten War, his fourth Matt Drake novel that ripsaws between war and peace and everything in between. Bentley, an Afghanistan vet, Apache pilot, and former FBI agent brings all this to the table for a word feast that few writers can match. There’s a lot going on in this fast-paced and well-plotted tale, and the bonus is the sharply drawn characters who you may—or may not—want to meet in a bar or on the battlefield. Forgotten War is an unforgettable read.” —Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maze
“Don Bentley rocks – this guy knows his stuff! His military thrillers are among the best in the business. And Forgotten War is as good as it gets. Intense. Explosive. Riveting. Absolutely unforgettable!” —Joel C. Rosenberg, New York Times bestselling author of The Kremlin Conspiracy and The Libyan Diversion
