What if John Grisham wrote a James Bond thriller starring Harry Potter?
“John Avery’s Black Cobra is as pulse-pounding and high-octane as its predecessor!”
— Jill Allen, Foreword Review
HE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN… to help crew a luxury motor yacht on a month long voyage from the Caribbean to California.
HOW COULD HE KNOW… that the man at the helm was a cold-blooded killer and part of an international conspiracy to assassinate the U.S. President, or that their welcome party in San Diego aboard a rusting Russian submarine would turn deadly?
THE CLOCK STARTS TICKING… when the antique submarine is suddenly locked down and highjacked by the gang of conspirators whose psycho leader is insane enough to think he can dive the old relic and use it as a weapon against the President.
THE WALLS CLOSE IN… on Aaron Quinn and his companions when the old sub’s crumbling hull and motors fail at depth, leaving them stranded on the bottom, flooding rapidly with freezing seawater, with limited oxygen and no way out, giving Aaron two terrifying choices:
1) Give up the fight and let himself, his friends, his loved ones, and the President of the United States die…
2) Eliminate the murderous gang one by one and pull off an impossible underwater rescue…
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE HIM?

“John Avery has a hit on his hands with ‘Black Cobra’ for sure! Aaron Quinn is fifteen, mature beyond his years, an orphan living quietly on his own in a tropical paradise until fate introduces him to a couple that will end up putting his life on the line. In a plot that will take him in luxury from the blue waters of the Cayman Islands to an archaic Russian submarine in the waters around San Diego, Aaron unknowingly is put in the middle of a plot to assassinate the President of the United States and anyone else who gets in the way. People from his past are popping up all around him in a kaleidoscope of coincidences. If they survive, what role will they play in his future?
Aaron Quinn is like a teenaged MacGyver, creative and quick thinking! Or maybe this is how James Bond started out, cool, reasonably calm under pressure, able to get out of impossible situations, drawing the women like a magnet! Or maybe he’s just himself, and John Avery should be congratulated for raising such a fine young man who is larger than life in his own quiet way, willing to share the limelight with other characters and allowing them to be developed and honed into realistic people able to evoke my feelings, good or bad. Like the spokes of a wheel, every twist and turn met together perfectly in an ending that made me say ‘No Way’ and ‘I Love It’ at the same time!”
