What would happen if China launched an insidious chemical attack on America? Find out how this hypothetical scenario will play out with Robert J. Saniscalchi's gripping military thriller, Black Water: The China Connection. After a long-deserved promotion, Delta Force team leader Jason Patrick returns to his humdrum home life with his wife when he receives the call to lead another crucial mission against an enemy inside his own country. When two Chinese operatives infiltrate the country posing as Penn University students, a few brave Caldwell, New York residents work together to warn federal agencies of a potential threat to the local water supply. Meanwhile, Jason and his team travel to Venice, Louisiana to secure a cartel drop site that houses weapons and the dreaded Black Water, a chemical agent concocted by China to poison America's great rivers.

Fast-paced and action-packed, Black Water: The China Connection is a blistering ride from the first page to the last. Filled with suspense, intrigue, and a healthy dose of patriotic fervor, Robert J. Saniscalchi's novel feels like a paean to the American people who put their lives on the line to protect the country's interests. The cast of characters is quite large, but Saniscalchi gives them distinct traits and personalities in a short amount of page time that distinguish them from one another. I particularly liked the relationship dynamics between Jason and his team members. The narrative is smooth, with a tight plot devoid of fat or fluff. This is a book to be savored by military fiction aficionados.

Blackwater chaos was about to engulf America, and the town of Caldwell was about to become the center of something bigger than they ever imagined. Hank was employed in the water department and was a part-time plumber for his community. He notices two Chinese nationals who seem suspicious, something he shares with Officer Stanley. The Chinese president, Li Sanshu, is a very happy man after the presentation of Doctor Ming and his assistant, Chao. He is optimistic that the Black Water Project will be a success and bring America to its knees, but those among his closest advisors are concerned about the repercussions of such an act. Will Chin and Li be caught, and how do the different agencies come together to fight this threat? Get a copy of Black Water: The China Connection by Robert J Saniscalchi to find out.

Black Water: The China Connection by Robert J Saniscalchi is a wonderfully written book. I loved the issues the book captured that affect society, such as immigration, our values and unity, and the thorny issue of meritocracy in public appointments. I also loved the appreciation shown for the law enforcement agencies. The steady narration and the flawless plotline kept me entertained and intrigued. Robert described events and emotions vividly, helping the reader create a mental picture of what was happening. The characters are also well-developed and relatable. The reader will also appreciate the easy-to-understand language the book uses, making it accessible to all readers. I cannot wait to read something else from this talented author.
