What others are saying about SAY GOODBYE:

“Great fast paced book. Seemingly realistic and accurate due to the author’s real-life US Air Force experience. I’d also recommend this to any fans of classic Tom Clancy. Looking forward to The Long Road Home!”

–  Matt D. Williams, Author of Jak Phoenix

“After 28.5 years in the Air Force (24.5 active duty, 4 years as a civilian), seeing these super heros in action, I’m so glad to see Robert Capko’s new book SAY GOODBYE hit the streets and pay homage to the–until now–unsung heros of the Air Force. I remember first hearing about PJs when I came into the USAF back in 1982. They’ll go places other services’ special operators won’t! These super Airmen know no fear, and John Paxton is the perfect example. My advice…get a lot of sleep the night before you read the book, because you’ll be going to bed late the day you start reading it…you will NOT be able to put it down!”

–  Chief Master Sergeant (Retired) Bill “D”.

“Finally a great military thriller that highlights the exceptional talents of the finest special operations operators, the U.S. Air Force Pararescuemen. The adrenaline was pumping with each page and the many twists and turns keep you speculating to the very end. Military and National Security drama enthusiasts have found a new hero in MSgt. John Paxton. From life and death at 50,000 feet to door busting close combat, from cloak and dagger mystery to raw human survival this book has something for everyone and you will not want to put it down.”

– CHON GANN – Medical, Security, and Intelligence Professional

Checking in with Author Robert Capko


author robert capko say goodbye action ebook on jakphoenix.comToday, Matt Williams is taking a quick break from Jak Phoenix to check in with author Robert Capko.

Robert’s first novel is called Say Goodbye and here’s what he had to say about it:

John Paxton is a man who understands duty—both to his family and to his country. As a highly decorated pararescueman in the Air Force, he’s risked his own life numerous times to save the lives of others. He is the epitome of the pararescue motto: These Things We Do That Others May Live. But now that he’s married with two small children, he’s content as an instructor at Lackland Air Force Base. 

Then Paxton is commanded to lead a team on a dangerous mission—supposedly to rescue the pilot of a stealth fighter shot down over Serbia. Yet, nothing is as it seems. As the mission goes from bad to worse, Paxton uncovers a deadly plot that threatens National Security. But to fight an enemy with ties to one of the most dangerous organizations on the planet, he risks not only his own life, but also the lives of the people he loves the most.

Here is what some others have said about Say Goodbye:

~Michele Bardsley, national bestselling author

 “Finally, a thrilling true-to-life novel about America’s ultra-elite but largely unsung special operations force, the Air Force Pararescuemen.”

~Matthew Bracken, former Navy SEAL and author of the ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC series.
