Former counterterrorism intelligence advisor, J.T. Patten has written a "blacker than black" Sean Havens Black Operations Thriller series, Safe Havens, and is embarking on a new initiative in partnership with Kensington books, A Task Force Orange Thriller series. Readers who enjoy classic military thriller characters like Mitch Rapp and Jack Reacher will tear through pages as these black ops soldiers become embroiled in Unacknowledged - Waived Special Access government programs to confront today's most notorious adversaries. The story is permeated with Patten's experience in supporting covert activities, often with an espionage and conspiracy angle. Readers will experience jaw dropping twists and ultimately question who is good or bad in the blurred lines of national security, as fallible intelligence specialists / operators, Sean Havens and Drake Woolf, take their places on the shelves of military thrillers, terrorism, assassination, and espionage novels.
