Code Name Pour Angelique
Code Name Pour Angelique deals with the consequences of starting a fire you cannot control and how it may come back at you.
When Special Forces or secret agents attack someone or something they better succeed, or the retaliation will follow you home. We see this happening every day in the current War on Terror. Traditionally, before 9/11, the terrorist activities were far away and something in the news, not in your neighbourhood if American or if from Western Europe.
There were terrorist incidents, of course, especially in France where not all were Muslim related as such - Mossad taking out Arabs - such acts are terrorism and innocents were murdered. Before that, the French suffered under the Algerian problem and anti-de Gaul actions.
In the UK, since the 1970s there has been a great terror threat with the IRA exploding bombs, and in the US, the terror mostly came from the white supremacists such as the Oklahoma Bombing etc. Yet, in looking back, this was almost innocent compared to what is happening now.
Since the 1990s, the West has grown complacent. It undoubtedly never occurred to anyone in power that the constant meddling in the Middle East may have unforeseen consequences for future generations. This is what this book is about - when you push too far, the pushback may be more than what you bargained for and once that type of fight starts, there will be only one man standing in the end.
In Code Name Pour Angelique I wanted to show you what happens when you take on the wrong people or you kill the wrong man. In counter-terrorism that is the very worst mistake ever, to kill indiscriminately and to murder innocents, there is always a retaliation in kind and yet that is what is happening today. Two innocents die for every terrorist killed by NATO Forces. I often warn about the consequences in my books.
The Barack Obama drone attacks had a 96.5% failure rate, they missed the intended target 96.5% of the time. As a counter-terrorism effort, pathetic beyond any words and the civilian population will suffer the logical consequences, terrorism at home. There are no excuses.
After South African spymaster extraordinaire Angelique Dawson is illegally detained during Code Name VFO565, and then rescued by her longtime bodyguard, former Police Special Forces Company Commander and Egg Breaker, Geoffrey Foxtrot, she is whisked away to be debriefed in Corsica.
Her husband, she got married to Foxtrot after her defection to France, and his best friend, legendary Police Special Forces Captain Geelslang Peter Ndebele, are at the Ukuthula Ranch in northern Mozambique. They are living under a termination order to be assassinated at sight but not much bothered by the Great Game anymore.
With Angelique away, they consider themselves retired. However, they are attacked by an assassination team. Thus starts what later became known as the “Egg Breaker War,” a merciless clash between two opposing groups.
Angelique is back and now leading her Egg Breakers against her former colleagues, a terrifying thought for all involved.
Foxtrot and Geelslang are recruited by MI6 to sabotage two of the South African Navy Type 209 submarines at the Simonstad Naval Base. The submarines must be destroyed, for reasons that will be revealed in the book. Likewise, Foxtrot takes revenge for the torture of his wife during Code Name VFO565 and sends a clear message to those that were involved.
