"If you enjoy fast-moving suspense in an intriguing setting, with a different sort of villain and a lively crew of characters, you're going to love The Pythagorean Solution. It's Joe Badal's first entry in the field and we hope an encore is in the works."
Tony Hillerman, New York Times Best Selling Author


"The Pythagorean Solution is a pulse-pounding adventure set in the Greek isles, centered around sunken treasure and dark secrets, and peopled by unlikely heroes and shrewd, heartless villains. A wild ride of a novel, sure to be appreciated by fans of Tom Clancy and Eric Ambler."
Steve Brewer, author of CHEAP SHOT


"A rollicking adventure that will transport the reader to the Greek islands for a high-stakes treasure hunt that opens a Pandora's box if intrigue, deceit and murder.

"Joe Badal takes us into a tangled puzzle of intrigue and terrorism; a page-turning mystery that gives readers a chance to combine learning of Greece and Greek politics with a tense, well told tale."
Tony Hillerman, New York Times Best Selling Author


"As up-to-date as today's headlines, TERROR CELL throws the reader slam-bang into the middle of a deadly struggle between the CIA and terrorists hell-bent on disrupting the Athens Olympics. Joseph Badal takes international intrigue to a whole new level."
Steve Brewer, author of BULLETS


"This political terrorist thriller uses the backdrop of the Olympic games in Greece coupled with the middle eastern terrorist treat. Veteran CIA Special Ops Officer, Bob Danforth, and his wife are ready for him to climb out of the saddle and retire. The assassination of the Athens Station Chief brings him back into the field. Not only does he have to fight the terrorists, but a look-the-other-way Greek government that has been co-opted by the bad guys. To add to the tension is the looming Olympics contest.
The author adds his extensive knowledge of how the intel community works with the emotional conflict between an old war horse and his long suffering wife. This makes for believable tension as the protagonist is pulled this way and that by duty, common sense, obligations and love. We ranked this book five hearts."
Bob Spear - Publisher and Chief reviewer, Heartland Reviews,
