    Great suspense/thriller! Loved the character of Jake. The storyline was enthralling and the edge-of-your-seat action was non-stop. The only drawback was the female lead’s character. Her actions just didn’t line up in a believable way. For instance, would a seasoned FBI agent jump into bed with a complete stranger, an unkept drifter to boot, within 24 hours after introduction... seriously?

    FOREIGN and DOMESTIC by A.J. TATA I received a free paperback copy of this book for review. F&D is a mostly enjoyable military special ops thriller along the lines of those written by Vince Flynn and Brad Thor. It is, however, not up to that quality of workmanship.

It is, however, not up to that quality of workmanship. F&D has all of the required ingredients for the genre. 1. A highly trained Spec.Ops soldier, in this Case, one Jake Mahegan, former Army captain whose last mission went horribly bad, resulting in mission failure and the death of most of his squad. He retired from the service, cloud over his head, and with a need for the answers to what went wrong. 2. A nasty Islamic terrorist , American born, with high tech weapons that evade detection, and the eagerness to use them-- in the USA. 3. A beautiful, mysterious babe. 4. An ambitious , unscrupulous Army general who wants to be Chief of Staff, and views making Mahegan as an incompetent leader, or worse, a traitor, as the key to the General's upward move. 5. A shadowy, evil. corporation making money from soldiers' blood. All the ingredients are present, but the result is so-so. A.J. TATA is a retired army general himself, so when he writes about combat his story is at its best. He has a clearly stated contempt for Pentagon Princes who fight from behind a desk.He has a clear understanding of the threat from Islamic jihadists. But his plot has just too many elements that do not meld well. The initial terror attacks are precisely plotted and described in all their horrifyingly real effects, but the massive main attack plan was, to me at least, unbelievable in its complexity. Not to mention that it takes one super heroic op to bring it all down. The book is about a 100 pages too long. The mysterious, beautiful babe, who is an actress, marine engineer, pirate treasure hunter, a descendant of one of the first colonists, a deputy sheriff, and yes, a bit more ( no spoiler here), seemed out of place. Even as a plot device ( she provides help to Mahegan ( and a bit of , uh, recreation) her role was overwritten. Speaking of writing, Tata tends to repeat himself- maybe he had to remind himself where this book was heading and where it had been- and sometimes seems to be penning an after action report; using mil-speak like personnel instead of people or vehicle rather than car, for example. Military jargon abounds for fans: weapons , secret communication and night- vision devices are, in fact better described than the characters. Well, verisimilitude rules in these cases. Note: lots of killing, precisely and economically done by the hero, massively and horrifically done by the terrorists. Mild sex scene. And, of course, an encounter with a few Rednecks who are, as usual, barely able to stay out of the way of their own tobacco-spit. Three stars for fans.

    A fun read, once which I thought would not end well, surprised me! The main character is really good and he's easy to cheer for. I also enjoy the loose premise that he's kinda working for the government and kinda not so much (though he clearly his!) The story is really well presented and relatable, even though I'm not from the area. it kept my interest throughout. Very well put together.

    Brigadier General A. J. Tata is a retired U.S. commander of combat units with duty in Afghanistan and writes with an intricate knowledge of his subject. His novel, "Foreign and Domestic" is a complex story of Capt. Jake Mahegan's search for what really happened in a failed mission in Afghanistan.

There are so many stories to be told of brave Americans in battle and this is one of them. Jake led a Delta Force team into Afghanistan to capture an American traitor working for the Taliban. Something happens and the mission ends in tragedy, taking the life of Jake's best friend Sgt. Colgate and the men with him. The bomb that killed Jake's friend was made in the U.S. and Jake wants to learn more. But before he can, he's accused of killing a prisoner and given a dishonorable discharge. Jake returns to the U.S. and is in the process of getting information about the dealings of Copperhead, Inc. a private military contractor that had something do do with the bomb that killed his friend. He meets an attractive young woman, Lindy Locklear, who has been doing some historical research in the Roanoke Island area of North Carolina. Not to reveal plot but an ambitious three star general orders Jake to the Pentagon for certain reasons and as the story continues, the reader watches the current terrorism activities of the American Taliban. Jake is an intriguing character with Native American background that made me think of past heroes of Louis L'Amour. He's independent and when he sees a wrong, he wants to correct it. His character is well described and the reader will want him to succeed in his actions. The complexity of the plot did confuse me at times but the action was smooth and suspenseful. There are a number of surprises that keep the plot interesting and spark the reader's interest. I received a free book in return for my honest review.

    Fairly deep and detailed story. One true warrior, physically and spiritually, against some of the worst villainous characters I've read about ever (not including nonfiction characters). There are traitors, murderers, slaves, good and bad military characters, and a group of evil military contractors (worse, by far, than anything ever done by Black-Ops).

Then there is the secondary character, a beautiful and intelligent undercover federal agent who also has ancestral ties similar to Jake's in the Roanoke tribal area that she has been researching as a hobby. It would appear that Jake and Elizabeth are destined to be together. Ah, but not yet because Jake still has work to do for a General and his own fallen family of soldiers. I liked the intrigue, but I did skip some chapters because of too much detail. Otherwise, I would have given it five stars.

    Tata is a new author for me. This first book in the Jake Mahegan Thriller was very good. The language was calm and no explicit intimate scenes. The story line kept my interest.

I found the story line highly enjoyable, the character development and pace excellent, and the right mix of additional subplot information (concerning North Carolina Native American culture, for example) to make this a fantastic book. I highly recommend it and I look forward to reading the next book in the series as well as other works by this talented author.

    Plenty of action for the thriller junkies like myself. If I had any negative thoughts it was the author made the story too busy. Too many bad guys. There's the terrorists blowing up military bases. The Taliban in Afghanistan, the 'ghosts', the rogue military contractors, the three star general trying to hang Mahegan out to dry, the local law enforcement. Just too many to keep straight on where Jake stood with each at any given time. Fun read for those who enjoy the action thriller genre. Plenty of action for the thriller junkies like myself.

    Reading the last half of this book was a great way to enjoy my birthday. Jake Mahegan is a great literary character and General Tata did an excellent job of making him come to life. This book has intrigue and more action than a Rambo movie, and from the detail given to character development, the reader is able to visualize just what the author was conveying. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see how General Tata can top this book!

    Enjoyable. Mostly takes place at OBX of North Carolina which holds a great interest to me. This is a NEW author so I was pleasantly surprised that this was so well done. Jake Mahegan was a former Delta Force team leader in Afganistan who set out to capture an American Traitor. Then it all went wrong.

    I really enjoyed this book for several reasons. First it held my attention throughout. Second I loved the setting in North Carolina, where wildlife such as snakes, crocodiles are part of the setting. It was hard to figure out who was straight and who was bad. Tata is definitely on my to read list for anti terrorist type books.

    This is another Tata hero "man (with skills) against the world". Loved it! I've read the entire Mahegan series, all were good and sprinkled with truth, made more interesting by Tata's personal military history.

    3 1/2 stars Overwritten but curiously good and novel plot. Characters are engaging and well defined. Narrator Jonathan Davis is usually excellent, but I found his hesitancy between sentences and phrasing very annoying. It disrupted the flow in what technically should be a 4 star book.

    Tata, as a retired Brigadier General of the US Army, brings detailed and accurate (or seems to me) workings of all things military in these novels. Jake is a strong character, but everyone else in the novel is a bit shallow. The plot was solid, if not terribly surprising.

    Outstanding! I have been wanting to read General Tata’s books for some time. Too many great novelists, but I found his protagonist quite different from many of the others I’ve read. I’m hooked now with this series and will have to read them all. Highly recommended!
