I’ve just finished The National Bet and really enjoyed it from start to finish. Right from the start, gripping details about minor characters pips your interest while never giving so much detail as to bog you down and get off track from the main story line as it slowly weaves itself together. The author shows a well researched knowledge of government organizations and law enforcement techniques as well as an awareness of the story’s locations in different cities and states. This is highly commendable for a fiction novel. I normally take quite a while to read a book but finished this one in no time because it held my interest so well. I couldn’t seem to put it down for the last three quarters of the book. I look forward to further books from the author and perhaps a further story of Joe L, the hero of this book.

Thank you, Mr. Cox!

If you still need convincing after reading the review above, take a look at all four 5-star reviews, then order your copy of The National Bet!

New Book Cover Offers Solid Backing for Green Beret’s Story

After more than three years on the market, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldiers’ Fight For Military Justice is getting a remake that involves the addition of four solid endorsements on its back cover.

Coming Soon! A new cover for Three Days In August by Bob McCarty.

Coming Soon! A new cover for Three Days In August by Bob McCarty.

Atop the list of reviews/endorsements that will appear on the new cover is one received from New York Times best-selling author Richard Miniter soon after the book’s October 2011 release. He wrote:

“Well-written and thoroughly researched, Three Days In August paints a convincing portrait of a military justice process that appears to have lacked one essential element – justice.” — Richard Miniter

A second came from Pamela Geller, the founder, editor and publisher of AtlasShrugs.com. In a December 2011 “Books I Like” article, she included the following statement about the book:

“What emerges is a picture of a military establishment that is cowed by political correctness to the extent that it is even willing to throw our fighting men and women to the wolves to appease the Left.” — Pamela Geller

From among the 18 customer reviews of the book that appear on the book’s Amazon page, portions of two will appear on the new back cover of Three Days In August.

A retired Air Force fighter pilot, Lt. Col. J.P. Reilly read the book and the final six words from the paragraph below will appear on the new back cover:

“Anyone who wants insight into the way the military really handles sexual assault cases should read this story, it would be unfortunate if this was an isolated case but it continues to be repeated. A good Soldier destroyed by the system.” — J.P. Reilly

Last, but not least, the words of Beverly Perlson will also appear on the new cover. A staunch supporter of our military troops and founder of The Band Of Mothers, she read the book and the final five words from the paragraph below appear on the new back cover:

“I just finished reading Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice, by Bob McCarty. From the moment I began reading, I couldn’t put it down.” — Beverly Perlson

If you’re interested in learning details about how former Army Green Beret Kelly A. Stewart was railroaded by the military justice system through a trial during which no physical evidence or witnesses were presented by the prosecution, order a copy of Three Days In August.

For a snapshot of Stewart’s situation today and to find out how you can help, read this Open Letter to Any American and/or read this recent article. Thanks in advance!

Posted by verified Amazon customer Amy Daniels, the 5-star review reads as follows:

“McCarty ingeniously builds a plot involving a national mass murder and takes you deep into the FBI investigation. He weaves a keen knowledge of changing technology, current political turmoil and real past events to nudge you into a possible future with his star character, Special Agent Joe-L Wilson. I hope to see more of Special Agent Wilson and I will be back if McCarty decides to make this a series. Exciting from beginning to end, I highly recommend this novel!”
