Praise for Secret Wars
LtCol Oliver North says ….
“President Ronald Reagan told terrorists: “You can run but you can’t hide.” He was right because Joe Goldberg was on the job at CIA. In Secret Wars Joe recounts true stories in a heart-thumping novel that’s spot on for events then — and now. WARNING: Don’t start this book at bedtime unless you’re prepared to lose a night’s rest. I know. Back then, Joe and I lost a lot of sleep.”
— LtCol Oliver North, USMC (Ret.), Host of War Stories on FOX News Channel
Mark Greaney, Tom Clancy Author, writes ….
“Joe Goldberg has rendered a terrific work of fiction that feels intense, authentic and utterly engaging. Secret Wars: An Espionage Story takes the reader behind the scenes of a multi-faceted CIA operation of deception and subterfuge involving international terrorism in the 1980’s. With realistic heroes, villains and settings, Secret Wars feels like a riveting non-fiction account of a top secret scheme in the black realm of CIA counter terror. Fans of Argo will especially enjoy the intricate op at the center of Secret Wars, but all lovers of the spy genre will want to devour this book in one sitting.”
And from Duane Clarridge …
“Secret Wars is a chillingly accurate inside look into the CIA and the world of espionage and deception. It immerses us in the violent moments when the deadly global war on terror went public. As Secret Wars illuminates in detail, this was fought by dedicated, hard-working people…civilians and military. Secret Wars is a true espionage novel by any definition.”
— Duane Clarridge, former CIA senior operations officer, founder of the CIA Counterterrorism Center
Kevin Maurer, award-winning journalist writes ….
“As I read Secret Wars, I spent most of my time trying to figure out what was real and what was fiction. The story is set at the dawn of the United States’ war against terrorism crackles with realism and authenticity. ”
— Kevin Maurer, award-winning journalist and best selling co-author of No Easy Day, a first hand account of the raid to kill Osama bin Laden
And from JT Patten, Author of Safe Havens …
“Joe Goldberg’s novel, Secret Wars, is quite possibly the most authentic espionage thriller ever written in fiction. This story can be used as text for any budding intelligence professional or spy enthusiast. Absolutely unbelievable…yet so believable.”
— JT Patten, author of Safe Havens: Shadow Masters
