Absolute Resolution by Al Dugan is an interesting read. I felt like I was sucked into the world the popular television show NCIS. Here, Al Dugan has created a powerful yet realistic world for readers to get lost in. Drama, romance, and action can be found inside this well-written tale. A Marine, a female NCIS agent, and a team created by the CIA populate the pages of this novel. I loved how politics followed everyone no matter where they went. There’s always another battle to be fought. The main character within this fast-paced suspense thriller is a hero from the beginning to end. The emotional attachment to this character made me want to go there and hug him. It was absolutely amazing how Al Dugan made his character three-dimensional. The plot itself was believable.
Inside Absolute Resolution, readers will find one sexy, tough Marine – one that has worked successfully with the CIA. His plans are to work and save up for a better life until someone from the CIA comes tracking him down with an offer he doesn’t refuse – more battles to fight in order to keep the US a safe place. Former Marine, Alan Joubert, finds himself in a team created by the CIA. On this team, he finds a female NCIS officer attractive: Maria. Maria is the type of woman who doesn’t like to mix work with pleasure, but Alan makes it hard to remember why she sticks to that rule. Then, there is the operation work for Central and South America that comes with a pay grade no one could refuse. Between CIA training and marine consultant training, Alan is a star figure for the CIA and its operations. The action is fast and exciting – never a dull moment within this title. Taking out the bad guys is what Alan Joubert misses, but nothing good lasts long. Readers will be kept guessing as Alan goes about doing work for the CIA. Will it all end well or will Alan lose what matters most? Overall, I highly recommend this brilliant military novel to readers everywhere.
