NY Times Bestselling Author and His New Book’s Eerie Similarities to Ukraine War


Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Don Bentley.

On a recent Price of Business show, Host Kevin Price visited with Don Bentley, the New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy Target Acquired (2021).

According to a statement, “Benley is back to deliver the highly anticipated and electrifying third installment of his beloved Matt Drake thriller series. Shaped by his own remarkable military background, HOSTILE INTENT (Berkley Hardcover; on sale May 3, 2022)  is part military thriller and part spy novel that will appeal to readers who love the action and grit of Tom Clancy and are also drawn to the covert world of political espionage.


“It’s a well-known fact among various intelligence agencies that Vienna is the hub of political espionage. Aptly named the City of Spies, it is a place where government agencies from across the globe converge. When a mysterious walk-in to the US embassy claims to have critical information about an impending Russian attack, Matt Drake is forced to cut his well-earned vacation short and make his way to Austria’s infamous capital in order to honor an old debt—one he owes to none other than Nolan Burke, a member of the real IRA.


“But when Nolan is taken captive by Russian operatives before he can divulge the information he has on the upcoming attack, it is up to Matt to save his friend while working to stop World War III in the process.


“Don Bentley has a unique ability to draw veterans and civilians alike into the dangerous and secretive world of the espionage community. Of Matt Drake, Bentley states, “My goal is to provide readers with a window into the tightly knit community of nameless men and women who do so much to keep us safe without recognition or reward.”


“Bentley’s fascinating background as a former FBI Special Agent, SWAT Team member, and Army Apache helicopter pilot gives him intimate knowledge that allows him to write with authority and give his books a visceral, hair-raising realism. In his former life, he flew an Apache attack helicopter in Afghanistan and led the aerial quick reactionary force sent to rescue Navy SEAL Marcus Lutrell during Operation Red Wings. In his writing, Don draws from his own combat experience and he hopes that fellow veterans will resonate with Matt Drake’s story.


“HOSTILE INTENT isn’t your typical thriller. Along with the action and intrigue that draws readers to the genre, what sets the Matt Drake series apart is the heart and humor at its center; showcased through Matt’s endless love for his wife, his unbreakable loyalty to his DIA brothers, and his unwavering desire to do good even when his life is on the line.


“New readers of the series and existing fans will devour the action-packed story, hilarious banter between characters and the human connections that Don Bentley brings to the page as we follow Matt Drake on his most epic journey yet to honor a debt no matter the cost.  ”
