Two Izzy-Centric Shorts and a Zanella Novella
Suzanne Brockmann returns to the action-packed world of her bestselling Troubleshooters series with a special 3-in-1 anthology: two shorts and a novella featuring U.S. Navy SEAL Izzy Zanella, his extended family, and his kickass teammates in SEAL Team Sixteen.
What should be an easy HAHO training jump for SEAL Team Sixteen goes wrong, forcing Navy SEAL Izzy Zanella to do what he does best: Improvise. At thirty thousand feet.
Home Fire Inferno (Burn, Baby, Burn!)
Navy SEAL Dan Gillman’s wife, Jenn, goes into early labor while stranded in the California desert, as he, Izzy Zanella, and most of Team Sixteen are mission ready, overseas. Meanwhile, left behind with a recent knee injury and faced with impending surgery and rehab, Chief Jay Lopez decides that the timing might be exactly right for a romantic interlude with a pretty fifth grade teacher . . . Hijinks definitely ensue.
Ready to Roll
BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL) training is known for being the toughest, meanest, most physically punishing program in the entire U.S. Navy, and a new crop of tadpoles have arrived in Coronado eager to prove their worth—to make it through Hell Week and become U.S. Navy SEALs.
Although Izzy Zanella prefers assignments out in the “real world,” he’s happy enough to be TDY as an instructor for the current BUD/S class, because it allows him to spend time at home with his wife, Eden, and her lively and lovable extended family.
Eden’s sixteen-year-old brother, Ben, is dealing with a new crush and a homophobic bully in his high school, but it soon appears that things are not as they seem.
As Ben deals with the type of too-serious high school drama that could involve a body count, Izzy is fascinated by “Boat Squad John,” a misfit team of young SEAL candidates all named John, including the intriguing young Seagull, his swim buddy Timebomb, and Seagull’s nemesis Hans.
Does Seagull have what it takes keep Boat Squad John still standing when the dust of BUD/S Hell Week settles, or will they ring out?
The only easy day is yesterday.
In Free Fall, Home Fire Inferno, and Ready to Roll, Brockmann delivers what she does best: stories celebrating the U.S. Navy SEALs—and the women and men who wholeheartedly love and support them. (80,000 words)
