JAVA SEA – A Novel

A horrific terrorist bombing in Bali, Indonesia, claims the lives of 150 Americans. When the Indonesian leader asks the U.S. president not to meddle in the investigation, he reluctantly complies, choosing not to upset the head of the country with the largest Muslim population in the world. But when Roy Mancini learns of the U.S. president’s decision, he takes the terrorist attack personally, having lost his two closest Balinese friends in the bombing. He enlists his partners in Asia and the United States to launch a private mission to identify, track, and assassinate the bombing’s four principal operatives. Vividly portrayed in settings throughout Southeast Asia, this second book in the series involves cyber espionage, humint, and an international cast of intelligence professionals and underworld characters that will keep you guessing until the explosive end.

JAVA SEA will be published on Amazon and Kindle in September 2016.


  1. I think you’ll like this one Ed. A main character is Roy’s son, Marc. The action takes place twenty-eight years after China Sea. Roy and Cynthia got married. Their son, Marc, served in the Marine Corps and has now joined his father in the coffee trading business. And then…the bombing in Bali.

    Mr. Swafford:
    I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.
    I’m a spy action and suspense thriller writer, and I have three series on the go: Justin Hall, Carrie Chronicles, and Jennifer Morgan. I was wondering if you would be interested in joint promotions to our readers’ mailing lists.
    The way it would work is that I would promote one of your books to my mailing list, which has a little over 7,000 readers. They will get your book for free by joining your mailing list. In turn, you would do the same with your mailing list—offer them a free book from one of my series if they join my mailing list. We write in similar genres, so our readers would be likely to enjoy our works, and these joint promotions could be a way to increase our readership.
    Let me know your thoughts about this idea or any other joint promotion. What are some other strategies you’ve found useful?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Ethan Jones
