Code Name Foxtrot is the first GMJ Book in time, taking place in 2004 but the 6th in the Series. Here we deal with the death of a soulmate and a man driven to take revenge for her untimely death. This is where the story really starts and much more is revealed about the narrator, Geoffrey Foxtrot. We explain Foxtrot’s utter loathing for Sir John McElroy, the MI6 spymaster that we meet from time to time in the GMJ Books. Foxtrot blames him for the death of his first wife, Marwa and it for the reader to decide how far that is fair or not towards Sir John McElroy who is to this day claiming his innocence relating to Marwa’s passing. This is the book where we flashback in time to where Foxtrot, then still a serving Police Special Forces Company Commander, tries to rescue his kidnapped former commanding officer, Angelique’s dad, against orders. Legendary Special Forces officer, Geelslang Peter Ndebele, then a platoon leader, goes with, volunteering his platoon and the rest, as they say, is history. As we know, the rescue fails, the two officers leave Special Forces to become Egg Breakers, years later to fall under the command of Angelique Dawson, the then South African Secret Service Head of Counterterrorism (and later Counter-Espionage). This is also the book where Angelique Dawson lost her first husband to cancer and starts to wonder about Geoffrey Foxtrot, the man that became her preferred agent, and much later her soul and husband, ending as the Egg Breaker Ground Commander. A man that signed for her before God long before he was born and would move mountains to keep her safe, rescuing her in 2012 after her detention as a double agent working for France. In fact, the entire GMJ Series is about the developing love story between the deadly spymaster, Angelique Dawson and Major Geoffrey Foxtrot, protecting her. You would have noticed that the book cover has a bouquet as a motive. Flowers are often used as a code in espionage. If you know what the flowers mean, you read a bouquet like a book. In such ways, secret messages are given covertly. The cover is a code, and it is revealed in the book what the message is.
Description: Former Police Special Forces Company Commander, Major Geoffrey Foxtrot’s wife, Marwa, is killed in an IED attack in Iraq. Marwa, he always knew, was a DGSE agent (the French spies) but he never knew how senior she was or what she was up to. He learns that she died with their unborn son in the explosion making an already terrible tragedy even worse. He is not about to take this insult lying down. He claims revenge and with the help of his South African Secret Service handler, spymaster Angelique Dawson, and his best friend, the legendary former Police Special Forces platoon leader, Geelslang Peter Ndebele, he heads for Iraq to find the killers. Angelique Dawson also has problems. Her husband dies of cancer at the same time as Marwa, and in their anguish, Foxtrot and Angelique turn towards each other for comfort. They would later fall in love and marry in Code Name VFO565, an enduring romance between two souls that were always meant to be. We discover the reason for Foxtrot’s hatred of Sir John McElroy, the MI6 spymaster. As far as he is concerned, Sir John is to be blamed for the death of his wife, and that demands retribution in blood. Foxtrot and Geelslang go after Sir John, tracking him down in a London Theatre. Angelique happens to be there, she intervenes, she wishes Sir John to live, and Foxtrot must make a choice as he has Sir John trapped and in his sights. Code Name Foxtrot is a tale of revenge, of a man sparing no one. Only Angelique Dawson can stop him, perhaps. 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 Foxtrot is book 6 of the popular GMJ Series and by the far the most humane of them all.
