Without Warning

(The first book in the Jake Hunt series)
A novel by

Jake Hunt wants the same as most men, a good woman, interesting work, a home, and children. But Jake is not every man. As an aviation adviser for a global oil company, he no longer has any business with terrorists, but they have business with him. A kidnap, an insurgent attack, and an abduction, and Jake finds himself back at war. As the unwanted drama unfolds, impacting his co-worker and new-found love Nicole Roswell, Jake gets angry. Nicole finds her ideas of right and wrong are tested to the limit, and she realises her charming and thoughtful man is an incorrigible risk taker.

"Without Warning, the first book in The Jake Hunt Series, exerts a magnetic force that pulls you into the characters’ minds and their diverse worlds." Queenscliffe Herald

"Few are as well-qualified to write an action-adventure novel as Jed Hart. He served in the Malayan conflict as a naval officer and in the Vietnam War as a pilot before founding Hart Aviation. Not only has he lived an extraordinary life, but Hart is also a gifted storyteller." Surf Coast Times

Quoting Jed Hart, Klaus Nannestad wrote: "Take the experience of Vietnam, we took a Qantas flight and flew into Saigon and suddenly all the rules changed. You come from a very civilised Australia, where law and order are paramount, and everything worked properly, and suddenly your day job was to kill people…" Bellarine Times

Without Warning is published by Feather Knight Books, an Australian publishing company based in Gippsland Victoria.

It is no surprise that action and adventure stories are on the rise. Thrill seekers who are looking for an emotional release during self-isolation are getting their adrenaline rush from non-stop action books.

According to psychological studies around the world, there are many benefits of reading fiction. While healthy escapism and short-term excitement are noted, the most impressive psychological finding, according to Jonathan Gottschall from The Boston Globe is how fiction mainly shapes us for the better by elevating our ability to understand other people.

In Jed Hart's new release, Without Warning, the author draws us together with common values throughout the narrative. Culture, religion, and creed are expressed through differing viewpoints; characters who wrestle with moral challenges of our times.

Using his own experiences in active war and terrorist situations, Jed Hart has unleashed a fictional story that oozes guns ‘n’ gusto action, and centres on terrorism, betrayal and brutal conflict.
Reflecting on his experiences, Hart stated, "It was quite easy to write a story that revolves around a Vietnam Vet and the issues that he would have to face after seeing so much violence and chaos in war zones."

Jed Hart flew choppers with the US Army in the Mekong Delta during the Vietnam War, operated helicopters to mountains in New Guinea, spent a stint as Shell's Peru-based Security Manager and worked in Brunei and London.

Hart said: "For me, writing the book has been cathartic. A lot of the journey that Jake Hunt takes, my comrades in arms and I have travelled. Some of my friends are men who became hardened by combat and have never been entirely comfortable in a peacetime world.

"People react in different ways in such circumstances, some calmly and philosophically and others with violence and chaos. I have tried to capture those things in this book."

In his explosive story―where nobody is safe―Jed Hart demonstrates how love, loyalty and a sense of duty can drive a person to commit unimaginable acts of the cruellest kind. Posing the question: How far would you go to protect the ones you love?
