Jed Hart has written a spellbinding account of life in the modern fast lane. This book intertwines so many intricate plots of old war heros, terrorism, religious fanaticism, big international business, and love and loyalty, that once started it is hard to put down. The book is very readable and believable and carries an amazing amount of exciting operational detail within all the subplots. I was very impressed with the book, and look forward to reading the next two in Jake Hunt series.
Rated 5 out of 5

Jed Hart’s Without Warning is a thriller that moves at a cracking pace, taking the reader from London to Brunei with mounting tension as it culminates in a terrorist attack. Jake Hunt and Nicole Roswell are strong credible characters with depth and substance. The plot has many twists and turns which makes this novel hard to put down.Jed’s Vietnam War experience and his years flying helicopters around the world has provided a sound background for this novel. For one not so technically minded I thought I might lost in the detail. Not so and I found Without Warning an great read. I have really enjoyed the first in the Jake Hunt series and look forward to further adventures for Jake and Nicole in Catch 33.
My wife Sue and I are in Byron Bay, waiting out the Covid-19 lock-down until family and friends can join us. Shouldn’t be long now. We’ve attached a bird box to our garden palm tree, and it has attracted attention from kookaburras, parakeets and, would you believe, two ducks. Over time I’ll try to capture some of their visits.
Who will decide this is home? We want baby kookas!
I’m a bloke, so going to the barber is not a big deal. I make an appointment or walk in off the street, and twenty minutes later I walk out $20 poorer and lighter on top. Simple.
But not if you’re determined to take the Covid lock-down seriously. I looked at hairdressing tools online ten days ago, and decided on a Remington kit for about $70. It was super exciting when it arrived; I had to charge the unit for 24 hours before the show could start. Since I was as shaggy as a long haired dog, I could hardly wait.
My wife Sue put the Remington to work yesterday. It’s a very effective tool and the result was…interesting. I advised on technique and comb size; 4mm up the sides; 7mm over the top; taper near the ears. Trim the neck. How hard can that be? Sue followed my instructions explicitly. Big mistake.
If I get locked up and sent to jail now, they won’t have to give me a prison haircut, they’ll tell me to grow it out. Turns out there are secret techniques known only to barbers. Also, I shouldn’t give advice on things I know nothing about.
