"I honestly believe that WIRED will be produced as a movie. The sequel, TAKEN & AFRAID, is so exciting, with so many twists, you will not put it down until the exciting climax."... John Austin

Sometimes we don't get to pick our battles . . . they pick us!


On a picture-perfect day, a day cruise ship is hijacked off the Florida coast and “wired” with explosives. At the same time car bombs explode across America including the DEA Headquarters in Virginia. As these startling revelations unfold the perpetrators turn out to be the "Los Zetas" drug cartel, who have joined forces with Muslim bombmakers to exact the release of a fearsome drug boss jailed in Miami.
 
For Captain Skip Myles, the situation transcends belief. The unimaginable shock of losing his vessel to armed terrorists a mere ten miles from port has left him a bewildered captive on his own ship. When he doesn’t come home from his evening cruise, his worried wife calls her ex-Navy SEAL brother. Cal rushes to her side and later embarks on a lone mission to rescue Skip... convinced that if he doesn’t, no one else will.
 
Coast Guard Rear Admiral Ray Hanna has the ship surrounded but finds himself on a political leash. He can’t release Alvarez and he can’t storm the ship without endangering the 218 passengers. It's a standoff. When the hijackers begin blowing up passengers wearing life jackets rigged with C-4—makeshift suicide vests—Hanna receives 24 hours to end the deadlock or else, leaving him with just one unthinkable choice.
 
Later that night, armed with a black-market Uzi and some borrowed scuba gear, Cal falls back into the murky waters of the Gulf of Mexico for a two-mile underwater swim to the Majestic Star, plunging headlong into a deadly showdown between the U.S. Coast Guard and the bloodthirsty suicidal hijackers. 

This where our story begins. The stage is set and the outcome is sure to be bloody.

The only thing more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose, is a man with everything to lose!

It’s been six months since the Majestic Star sank at sea in a fiery explosion. Since then, Cal Stringer and Skip Myles, two former SEALS that thwarted the ship hijacking, are putting their lives back together in Florida when a longtime friend is mysteriously beheaded and Kathy Myles vanishes into thin air. The next day Cal and Skip receive their friend’s head in a box with a note from an old nemesis long thought dead. As it turns out, Juan Carlos Alvarez did not go down with the ship and the horribly scarred and pissed-off criminal mastermind is out for blood.
 
When Kathy Myles is tracked to the mountains of Mexico, her brother, Cal, and her husband, Skip, team up with Ray Hanna, an ex-Coast Guard copter pilot, and with Marita Mendez, a pretty but tough-as-nails U.S. Marshal with a score to settle of her own. Together, the four embark on a daring nighttime raid to rescue Kathy, only to arrive in Mexico one day too late. A short while later, Cal and Skip receive a taunting photo of Kathy holding a New York Times newspaper and they race to New York City, where they uncover an imminent terror plot planned for the Macy’s parade.
 
On Thanksgiving Day, America will suffer and burn as he did . . . and Juan Carlos Alvarez is going to start the fire. 

The climactic ending will startle you!! 

Remember the Hindenburg?

AMAZON BOOK REVIEWS


I've just finished Taken & Afraid by Ronson Duncan, a rip-roaring page turner. Don't even bother starting it unless you have all night free to finish it. I took Ron's first book, WIRED, for granted. I gave it 5 deserved stars. This book is a non stop hold onto your butt surprise thriller from the first page to the last. In what can only be described as a a constantly changing, intricate balance of good and evil and evil turned good, TAKEN will take you places few second time authors ever get to achieve. All I can say is READ IT! 5 BIG STARS!....David J. Roth, former Book Reviewer for Tampa Bay Examiner

Ronson Duncan has written one of the best adventure novels I have read in a long time. It has heart pounding action from page one to the climactic startling ending. Characters are well drawn, and the locations (especially if you live in Clearwater Florida) have you believing that you are part of the action. This book is a sequel to a first novel, "Wired", which was an outstanding debut novel with the same nonstop action, and believable and frightening plot. Do yourself a favor and read both books, you will not forget either of them anytime soon…. John Austin, Host of the Book Club, Tan Talk Radio Network

This is the second in the series by Ron Duncan. I stayed up all night to finish the first one, and finished this one in two days. A great read! ....M. Gusler, Largo FL

This is the second book by Ronson Duncan that I've read and it captured the same sense of suspense as "Wired" did. In this book, he moves from Florida to Mexico, to NYC and follows the characters pace as they try to rescue the kidnapped wife of one of the main characters. His portrayal of the scene-setting in the other parts of the novel are very accurate and add to the suspense, as you "feel like you are there". The ending is a good one, as it rounds things up from the various sub-plots he has woven through the novel - plus it has a trick blow-off that is unexpected enough to surprise most readers. All-around good job…. David C., San Diego CA

It was an exciting and suspenseful story that is full of twist and turns. His first book was good, but this one is great….Phyllis D., Crestwood KY
 
* * * * * *
Timely and exciting fiction that will keep you up awake and on the edge of your seat. You will not be able to put it down for wondering what will come next. Good read, but not for the faint of heart. The surprise ending will blow you away…. Solivita, Tampa FL

I couldn't wait for the Wired sequel and I couldn't put it down! Ronson Duncan is an eloquent writer who will keep you on the edge of your seat as the leading characters attempt to save a kidnap victim and her unborn baby from an evil and demented drug lord! The unexpected twist and turns make this thriller a must read!!! I can't wait for his next book to be published…. P. Henninger, Louisville KY

"GREAT FOLLOW UP TO THE FIRST NOVEL "WIRED" Looking forward to the Next Novel By this Amazing Author.... Henderman, Orlando FL
 
* * * * * *
Ronson Duncan has given us a really good second book to enjoy. Timely, suspenseful, educational, and thoughtful...the book keeps you moving from character to character, and chapter to chapter. Unique twists and turns, in a plot that is relevant to today's challenges, it makes one wonder how safe we really are from terrorists bent on taking out the Big Satan. Good read!.... J. Chapman, Dunedin FL
