"Author, and fellow Loadmaster, Jay Cadmus (C-141B, DC-8, B-747, B-767) has written a tense and moving thriller for his newest book. Set in Central America in the fall of 1985, Constable Outreach 35 encompasses international, local, and personal events and circumstances resulting from the capture of C-123 Loadmaster Lester Russell by the Sandinistas. Russell, a Vietnam veteran with a colorful resumé, including duty on Special Ops C-47s, works for Tom McKay, station chief of Constable Outreach, a multi-faceted, quasi-military, U.S. government air operation. Injured and incapacitated, Russell is placed in the care of Juanita Perez, widow of Sandinista hero Miguel Correa-Velazquez. The author weaves the story through the actions of various characters including American diplomats, Nicaraguan military officers, Cubans, and those pesky Soviet advisors.
Mr. Cadmus has written this story in a unique style which brings urgency to the story and the feeling one is reading intel dispatches—but he also puts the reader inside the heads of characters in the plot, and sub-plots. Although a fiction piece, Constable Outreach 35 offers historical background in the process. But, will Juanita Perez, whose son went missing mysteriously, be a threat to Loadmaster Russell, or his care-giver?"
