After spending eight years in Army Special Operations units, I wrote a book about the kind of mission I had always hoped I would be a part of. In this regard, Reflexive Fire is written to answer the question, what would be the ultimate Special Forces mission? The plot of the book is a modern take on a real life coup attempt that almost took place on American soil before it was exposed by the heroic General Smedley Butler. In my novel, I speculate on what such a coup would look like today. The Wall Street gang tried to get General Butler (a two time Metal of Honor awardee) to lead their coup but if it took place today, what kind of person would they approach? What would happen if, like General Butler, that man decided to turn the tables on his employers?
