About the Author

Grogan currently resides with his wife in Illinois. A certified public accountant and an attorney with a master's degree in International Law, Grogan served on active duty in the U.S. Navy for over 26 years as a Navy Judge Advocate. His experiences abroad and during the course of his career influence every aspect of his writing.


"Grogan's richly layered writing style brings you into the pages, like a virtual reality. It's more than an excellent read. It's an experience."

--Carine McCandless, author of the New York Times best seller, The Wild Truth

5 Stars: "A gripping story that had me on the edge of my seat. I shall certainly be adding David's first book The Siegel Dispositions to my wish list."

--Yet Another Blogging Mummy

5 stars: "Sometimes a supporting character really steals the show, and in this one it's an ex-Army fighter pilot, who just so happens to be a woman."

--Laura's Reviews

4 Stars: "Sapphire Pavilion is a tense thriller that builds slowly into a highly compelling plot. It deals with some heavy themes in a deft manner, especially with Casey's journey into the past. The descriptions of Vietnam paint a portrait of a locale that is both sensitive and fascinating. It is technically a sequel, but it isn't necessary to have read the book before this one. Sapphire Pavilion is a page-turner that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat from start to finish and is well worth a read."

--Mary Bennings for RT Reviews

"A nonstop thriller, this second addition to the 'Steve Stilwell Thriller' can be read in order or as a standalone work. With minimal romance, but tons of action and conspiracy to unravel, readers will find themselves fully entrenched in the story."

--Sarah E. Bradley for InD'Tale magazine

"A thrilling, intriguing tale, Sapphire Pavilion leaves you hanging by the seat of your pants. The fast-paced action is continuous, climbing every step of the way. With every turn of the page, you find yourself digging deeper into Steve's unexpected circumstances. While this book is a part of the series, the author has written it in such a way that it also acts as a standalone. Will definitely be catching up on book one. Thanks for a great read!"

--Lissette Manning,

"David Grogan's Sapphire Pavilion is a page turner with twists and turns on just about every page. From a sleepy law practice in Southern Virginia to the streets and back alleys of Ho Chi Min City to the corridors of the U.S. State Department Grogan's protagonist/retired Navy JAG Captain Steve Stilwell manages to piece together a long-buried truth that threatens to destroy him and others."

--Gene Pell, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, Veterans Chronicles

"This book is set in Vietnam. The American author wrote it while in Vietnam. And that's why I like it. It's an authentic portrayal of an oft misunderstood place and it shows how it is right now, today. The author could've relied on his imagination, secondhand research, TV, movies, the Internet, etc. But he chose not to. Instead, he did the legwork and brought current day Vietnam to life from his own personal perspective. And let me tell you, it makes for a much more interesting read."

--City Girl Who Loves to Read

"Let me tell you, this is novel is so chock full of suspense that you won't want to put down, as you follow their dangerous pursuits through the openly corrupt Vietnamese system and back again to the covertly crooked one, existing in America. If you like political thrillers with jaw-dropping plot twists at the end, then this one's for you."

--Tribute Books Mama

5 Stars: "I really enjoyed this story and was engrossed in it from the first page. The intricate, fascinating plot deftly uses 'what if' to look back at a mission that might have happened during the Vietnam War era and convincingly creates the story from this imaginary incident [....] The settings are very vivid and I felt the heat and chaos in Ho Chi Minh City, and soaked up the bureaucratic atmosphere of Washington, D.C. and the small town aura of Texas and Virginia [....]This is a fast-paced mystery and thriller gripped me from the beginning. I enjoyed every moment of it."

--Dianne Ascroft, author of historical and contemporary fiction
