Action, Suspense and Middle East Mayhem in Back to Somalia, Published by Outskirts Press

Honolulu, HI, March 11, 2010 --( In his new action novel, Back to Somalia, published by Outskirts Press, author Glenn Bell gives his readers the ride of their lives as they follow Ethan Breaux, veteran Special Ops pilot, on his super secret nuclear weapon rescue mission, a covert operation too controversial even for the U.S. Army to perform themselves.

A North Korean nuclear weapon has been stolen on its way to a dangerous Middle East regime by Somali pirates at the behest of a Hezbollah Islamic terrorist. The CIA tries to recruit Special Ops expert pilot Ethan Breaux, nicknamed “Cajun,” but Ethan is finally and reluctantly persuaded to take on the wild mission only when he learns the love of his life, Savannah, is being held on the outskirts of Ethiopia with another nurse to treat wounded Islamic soldiers.

Ethan brings together his old Special Ops buddies from their days in Iraq to carry out the action filled mission that starts in England and moves to Oman and then on to the Cradle of Mankind in the depths of darkest Africa.

The vivid descriptions of a hair raising instrument approach at midnight of a Boeing 737 into a tiny airfield in Ethiopia or of a Cobra Attack helicopter firing rockets at an enemy target could only be drawn by a veteran pilot like Glenn Bell who knows from his own experience what it feels like to pull the trigger himself.

Back to Somalia is available on-line in hardback and paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
