Can ex-Navy SEAL Adam Weldon and his girlfriend, an FBI sharpshooter, join forces with a mesmerizing Interpol drone expert to stop the planned destruction?

Set in the Greek Islands and Washington DC, “Cyclops Conspiracy” by William McGinnis is a taut, deftly written, and thoroughly entertaining thriller that delivers twists and surprises that will keep the reader totally engaged and compulsively turning pages from cover to cover. –Midwest Book Review

Winner of the Literary Titan Book Award: Literary Titan Review:

Writer William McGinnis says that Adam Weldon is his favorite character, and indeed he does feature in a number of McGinnis’s action tales. Weldon is a MacGyver type – an ex-Navy SEAL who can turn any tricky situation to his advantage. Unlike MacGyver, however, he does so with a gun in one hand and in the other, an encyclopedic knowledge of how to kill someone bare-handed, Jack Reacher style.

In Cyclops Conspiracy, Weldon teams up with his girlfriend, Tripnee, an FBI sharpshooter, and an alluring drone expert called Sophia. Together, they set sail to prevent World War III.

The action takes them around the Greek Islands and, eventually, all the way to the White House as they attempt to foil the plans of Islamic extremists set on jihad. McGinnis clearly knows his way around a yacht,…..   McGinnis draws on the Cyclops / Greek mythology connection as well.

Throughout the book, the people are beautiful and the bad guys are very bad; the men are tough and resourceful, the women are … strong female protagonists. While the characters were engaging and perfect vehicles to deliver entertaining action scenes, I look forward to seeing them developed further in future novels as they’re interesting characters, but I feel we’re only scratching the surface.

For fans of action-adventure novels there is plenty of violence and threat and lots of shooting with heads disappearing into red mists and a clever twist at the end. Cyclops Conspiracy is a thrilling action novel that will appeal to fans looking for a straightforward story with relentless action.           —Thomas Anderson, Literary Titan

    Mr. Willam McGinnis takes readers on an exciting sailing adventure throughout the Greek Islands. The tastes, sounds, and locations kept the excitement ramping from one wave to the next as Adam Weldon, Tripnee, and Sophia chased Islamic terrorists. The ports illustrated the lifestyles of the rich and famous with various expensive watercraft, local music, and delicious dining locations as a cover to get the radicals before they strike. The sailing techniques were delivered like scenes of a movie based on first-hand experiences. Citing book pages and verses highlighted the beliefs that added to the continual story tension.

    Each cast member was relatable and believable from the carefully teased descriptions, actions, reactions, and snappy dialogue. Adam Weldon is incredibly resourceful, with a strength of character and conviction not often found. Listeners and readers get drawn into the story with the harsh truth that failure was not an option. The hardships each member endures quicken the listener’s heartbeat and fears that one of the good guys won’t recover. To accomplish the final goal, the cat-and-mouse race keeps the solution obscured until the unbelievable end.

    Narrator, voice action Tristan Wright delivers an outstanding performance. The perfect accents for the characters, flawless intonations, and tempo added to the action-packed adventure. The sounds of bullets, rapid-fire machine guns, and other sounds came to life. Cyclops Conspiracy stands on its own, but Adam Weldon is a character you should follow in this runaway success series. Fans of Action and adventure thrillers will thoroughly enjoy this from start to finish. Very well done.

    Exciting thrills a minute!!
