Carlson is a gripping fictional novel by author Dave Spear that is based on technically accurate events. Set during the Vietnam War and the opening salvos of the United States war against drugs, this detailed narrative reads like fast-paced Tom Clancy. It s 1972 in San Diego, California. Master Chief Petty Officer John Keener Long, (JK) is a dedicated sailor stationed aboard the USS Carlson, a US Navy Guided Missile Cruiser. JK is torn between his career in the Navy and his responsibility to his family s billion-dollar corporation in Texas, the Apache Springs Ranch Corporation. As Chairman of the Board, JK was selected from a long-standing spiritual tradition sacred to the Long Family lineage. But when JK and his comrades-in-arms discover evidence of a powerful, international drug cartel, his decision is made and he turns the family company over to his wife. A personal war is declared and JK and his shipmates will stop at nothing to protect America from the influx of these dangerous criminals. A story about good and evil, right and wrong, Carlson is a testament to the honor, integrity, and dedication of our United States military. After reading this book, one truly understands the duty and honor of our country s armed forces: to make the ultimate sacrifice for God and country.
