My Review:


Been awhile since I had the pleasure of reviewing a book and this book is fantastic. I have been binging Snowfall and this book really felt like it. Not that Cobra Pose deals with drugs, but that this book’s storyline is complex.


Having threats from so many places makes this book such a gripping read. The layers of law enforcement and bad guys are so well written. I was just on edge reading this and had trouble putting it down. The characters are really well done. The bad guys are as well done as the good guys. The ending is worth the effort. Such a fantastic read.


You will want to get a hold of this if you enjoy streaming solid dramas and crime shows. A great book that I really enjoyed and recommend to all.

Author Biography:


What do a woman, who used to train military personnel how to shoot straight, and a man, skilled at eradicating all sorts of hazardous materials safely, have in common? Besides both being designated law enforcement officers, they have now written two ‘knock ’em dead’ books … together!


John Roosen started his career as a biologist, served as a naval officer and environmental emergency specialist in the United States, and has lived and worked in Australasia, Antarctica and the Middle East. At a moment’s notice, he would respond to chemical and refinery plant explosions, deal with rocket fuel plant meltdowns and dismantle illegal drug labs. As a change-up, John switched careers to chasing pirates and duelling with a con artist extraordinaire on a remote South Pacific island. In between, he organised jungle expeditions and deep-sea scuba diving. However, John’s experience extends beyond responding to cataclysmic disasters and includes mastering the intricacies of making soufflé omelettes without burning the edges.


Susan Rogers already knew she was a writer at age six, but as an adult she took a major detour in becoming a commissioned naval officer. She has conducted sting operations, run extensive weapons training programs and directed the restoration of a Presidential yacht. In between, she has written several books, run health and safety operations for multi-billion-dollar projects in Abu Dhabi and revamped a South Pacific maritime service. Susan continues to write: whether braced against the hull of a sailing vessel on a hard tack, during a crossing of the Middle East’s empty quarter in a Mini, or bouncing around in a troop carrier in Australia’s outback.
