A daring mission deep into enemy waters...
Operating out of the Indian Ocean, a heavily armed and professional team of Somali pirates, known as the ‘Somali Marines’, have been capturing large cargo ships in order to ransom them for huge sums of money, enraging the Pentagon.
Tensions reach boiling point after they seize two United States ships, and demand 15 million dollars. Against all advice, the ship owners pay up, causing the US military to form an elite hit squad, charged with eliminating the pirates’ operation.
Battle-hardened veteran Mack Bedford is deployed to SEAL Team 10 to form The Delta Platoon. His objective: to go the Indian Ocean and obliterate the Somali Marines once and for all.
Mack Bedford returns once more in The Delta Solution, his most exciting adventure yet, perfect for fans of James Deegan, Brad Thor and Clive Cussler.
Cdr. Mackenzie "Mack" Bedford takes on Somali pirates in Robinson's rousing if less than suspenseful third action thriller to feature the courageous U.S. Navy SEAL (after Diamondhead). Mohammed Salat, "the Godfather of the Dark Continent," is the brains and the money behind the so-called Somali Marines, well-equipped, well-trained brigands who seize tankers and cargo ships off the African coast that they hold for massive ransoms. When the pirates grab a freighter chartered by a U.S. aid agency, Mack takes charge of the Delta Platoon, a new unit of handpicked SEALs. The plot slows as Robinson dwells on the SEALs' extraordinary training and the smooth, sophisticated operations of the Somali Marines. When the order is finally given to go, the Delta Platoon is ready for both daring rescue operations at sea and the brutal task of attacking the pirates' fortified headquarters in the Somali town of Haradheere. Readers will cheer as Mack and his team solve the vexing problem of Somali pirates.
