Code Name Dawson is the last book in the “Egg Breaker War” Series. It has been a long road for Angelique Dawson, the brilliant onetime South African Secret Service Head of Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Espionage. After her illegal detention in 2012 and subsequent escape and defection to France (Code Name VFO565), she came back to deal with unfinished business, the “Egg Breaker War” that kicked off with a surprise attack on the households of narrator in the GMJ Books, Geoffrey Foxtrot and his best friend, legendary Special Forces officer, Geelslang Peter Ndebele, both her star agents in the past (Code Name Pour Angelique). Angelique is now married to her soul, Foxtrot, the current Egg Breaker ground commander and former Police Special Forces Company Commander. She is also expecting their twins, Lise and Odette whilst acting as the Egg Breaker commander, fighting her former colleagues to a standstill until they ask for negotiations to end the war. A process that is fraught with danger since they cannot be trusted to act honourably, and she is recovering from her wounds received during Code Name Lise where she got shot. With help from MI6 and the other Egg Breakers, loyal towards their first commander, Angelique Dawson, they) caused much damage and loss of life in a thoroughly dirty war with no quarter asked nor given (Code Name Phoenix, Code Name Lise).
When peace is negotiated, it is not the same as surrendering. That part is easy, you give up and ask for mercy and may even get it if not surrendering to the Russians, Chinese, Japanese and Third World Forces – they have their own ideas on the Genève Conventions on War. Mind, you would be misguided to consider a developing country like South Africa a “Third World.” If there is one lesson in the GMJ Series which readers keep on coming back to me with letters, thank you, it is that they were never aware of what they are facing down south. But we knew, we knew exactly what we were facing. Angelique was a member of the South African Secret Service (and its predecessor) for 28 years, 14 years of which as a senior officer, and well aware of what shenanigans they are up to. Foxtrot does not wish to negotiate anything, his mantra is to always attack first. He heard that a special team was formed to kill Angelique Dawson-Foxtrot. As expected by now, between Geelslang and himself, they go on the hunt. In the background, Angelique is not waiting either, she heads south with her French security team to negotiate the peace deal, heading towards betrayal. Yet, the issue must be forced, it will be either peace or war or a truce.
Description: Former Police Special Forces Company Commander, Geoffrey Foxtrot, now the Egg Breaker Ground Commander, is operating clandestinely inside South Africa. He is after a medical doctor that is helping Al-Qaeda operatives. Whilst there, he is warned by his wife, former South African Secret Service Head of Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Espionage, Angelique Dawson, now the Egg Breaker Commander, that a new enemy is on the prowl. An ex-French Special Forces member was recruited to train a special hunting group to kill them. As expected, Foxtrot strikes first, going after the assassin. Angelique, in the meantime, her wounded arm healing and promoted to Major General rank by the French, is also inside South Africa, a place she should not be, to conduct truce negotiations between the groups. She is betrayed and attacked. Foxtrot himself, with his men including legendary Special Forces officer, Geelslang Peter Ndebele, is trapped in a farmhouse by an attack helicopter, a Denel Rooivalk. They are fighting for survival against all the odds against the best in the business and must either escape or shoot the attack beast down, no easy task. If you wish to read about Covert and Special Forces Operations in sub-Saharan Africa, the GMJ Books are the place to start. You will learn about covert operations, Special Forces techniques and military history not known outside the select few. Code Name Dawson is the fifth book in the popular GMJ Series.
