CATEGORY FIVE by Philip Donlay released by Oceanview Publishing.
In the Atlantic Ocean, Hurricane Helena is gathering strength, becoming the most powerful storm in recorded history. As Helena bears down on Bermuda, Donovan Nash, along with other members of the scientific research organization Eco-Watch, are called to fly in and extract key government people who have been studying Helena. For Donovan Nash, the routine mission turns deadly when an attempt is made on the life of the lead scientist.
A woman from the past, Dr. Lauren McKenna, is suddenly thrust back into his life. With 300 mph winds and waves over 90 feet, Helena marches relentlessly for the vulnerable east coast of the United States. In a bold attempt to diffuse the power of the hurricane, Eco-Watch is called upon to conduct a final flight above the massive fury, where the jet suffers a catastrophic engine failure. Now the only option is to maneuver the crippled airplane into the calm of Helena's eye.
Philip Donlay learned to fly at age seventeen and was first published at eighteen. In the aviation world, success came quickly and he's been flying jets since he was twenty years old. Whether flying a Saudi sheik, nighttime freight, or executives of a Fortune 500 company, Donlay has logged over six million miles while spanning the globe. Donlay burst onto the literary scene in 2004 with the publication of his first novel, Category Five, followed by Code Black, Zero Separation, Deadly Echoes, Aftershock, and Pegasus Down. He is an avid fly fisherman and divides his time between Montana and the Pacific Northwest.
Praise for the Donovan Nash Series...
“[Deadly Echoes] is a heart-thumping ride that steams along, bringing our flawed world into pristine focus. Lots of mischief and mayhem, the characters fraught with danger, the plot hitting all the right notes.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Patriot Threat
“Donovan Nash is back—and is he ever. In Aftershock, the latest thriller from Philip Donlay, Donovan must travel to the jungles of Guatemala to save a woman from his past who has been kidnapped by the vicious killer known as The Serpent. Tense action, crisp dialog, and cool high-tech toys drive the story. Oh, and there’s even an erupting volcano. A great read.”
—D. P. Lyle, award-winning author of the Dub Walker thriller series
“Fans of Michael Crichton will not want to miss Deadly Echoes. Well researched and supremely entertaining, Philip Donlay has knocked this one out of the park!”
—Ward Larsen, USA Today best-selling author of The Perfect Assassin
“Zero Separation is a timely and terrifying roller-coaster ride depicting the realities of the post-9/11 world.”
—Sheldon Siegel, New York Times best-selling author of The Confession
