Revenge for the Death of a Wife
293 pages in paperback
Code Name Foxtrot takes place in 2004 and is the first GMJ Book in chronical order, 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 is revealed about the narrator, Geoffrey Foxtrot.
We reveal why Foxtrot hates Sir John McElroy, the MI6 spymaster that we meet from time to time in the GMJ Books.
We also flashback in time to when 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 and the two officers leave the Special Forces to become Egg Breakers.
Meanwhile, Angelique Dawson has 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.
In fact, the entire GMJ Series is about the developing love story between the deadly spymaster, Angelique Dawson and Major Geoffrey Foxtrot, protecting her.
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. Upon her death he learns much and 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 will eventually 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. And Foxtrot must make a difficult choice concerning revenge.
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 GMJ Series and by the far the most humane of them all.
