“Dolphins, drones, terrorism, special ops, and the latest military gadgets all wrapped inside layers of impending massacre and international intrigue” (Ron Lealos, author of The Sixth Man).
James Grundvig’s Dolphin Drone takes us into the complex underworld of global terrorism with razor-sharp plot twists, remarkable characters, and fascinating insight into the technological advancements of the US Navy.
Using dolphin sonar-tracking technology, ex-Navy SEAL Merk Toten stumbles upon freshly laid Iranian sea mines, while conducting surveillance on two U.S. ships that were hijacked by Somali pirates on the Strait of Hormuz. This discovery occurs on the same day that a fake intelligence report draws three US drones away from the Persian Gulf. Toten investigates the parallel events to uncover a new super-terrorist group made up of a network of Somali warlords, Islamic assailants, Yemen-based terrorists, and ISIS sympathizers.
When Toten and the beautiful CIA Operative Jenny Myung King discover a plot by this new terrorist organization to bomb New York Harbor, the duo must race against the clock to stop the devastating attack.
Dolphin Drone is a tense thriller that combines cutting-edge marine technology, high-stakes undercover operations, and complex and frightening political underpinnings.
“Journalist Grundvig’s promising first novel introduces ‘dolphin whisperer’ Merk Toten and his two military-trained bottlenose dolphins, Tasi and Inapo.” —Publishers Weekly
