"W. Craig Reed's Status-6 is my vote for Thriller of the Year. The protagonist is Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan meets Lee Child's Jack Reacher." --Grant Blackwood, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy's Under Fire
"W. Craig Reed's latest novel, Status-6, is the best book I've read this year--a ripped-from-the-headlines military technothriller that literally left me awake at night, fearful of where we're headed as a nation and a species. What's next after the nightmare coronavirus pandemic? Don't miss this first book in the NCIS Special Ops series that promises to shatter the thriller genre." --James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Demon Crown (Sigma Force)
"W. Craig Reed's Status-6 grabs you from page one and doesn't let you go. The global security crisis revealed in this book is all-too-real and could well be tomorrow's headlines. The characters are well-nuanced and provide a powerful urge to root for or against them. Don't read this thriller before going to bed--you'll be awake all night!" --George Gladorisi, New York Times bestselling author of the Tom Clancy Op Center series
"Status-6 by W. Craig Reed follows Jon Shay, a widower engaged in a cat and mouse game of Russian roulette, still filled with raw grief, and riddled with self -reproach one year after the drowning of his late wife Annelia. Unwilling to accept comfort, his mind filled with irrational thoughts, and suffocating in self-flagellation, Jon is at a crossroads and the only thing keeping him afloat is his work at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Jon's mission takes him to Alaska where temperatures are minus twenty-three degrees during the day and drop to minus thirty degrees at night, and men are required to be tough to thrive in the harsh environment. Agent Shay's assignment is to conduct a meticulous criminal investigation within a limited time frame and uncover whether or not the sudden and untimely death of the Petty Officer aboard the USS Connecticut submarine was due to nefarious reasons. As the plot thickens and Agent Shay is caught in the middle of the spider's web, will he be able to keep his wits about him and rely on his past Seal training to steer clear of the firing line?

"Status-6 by W. Craig Reed is a crisp and articulate work of fiction about Jon Shay--a guilt-ridden, remorseful, grieving widower with a death wish--and Agent Shay, the highly skilled Naval Criminal Investigative Service operative and the embodiment of masculinity. The author makes use of clever metaphors like, 'Three geriatric bulbs lit the way' and euphemisms such as, 'he had cast off from the shores of life.' Agent Shay will need to unpick a jigsaw puzzle and put the pieces back together while battling an Arctic ice storm as well as the raging storm within himself and the one caused by those around him. The nail-biting action was fast-paced and kept me riveted as the author painted a black picture of Jon Shay the man, combined with the hazardous world inhabited by Agent Shay, the NCIS operative. This novel is a suspense-filled, roller coaster ride. The fast-paced action with its numerous twists and turns had me riveted to my seat to the last page!"--5-Star Review by Barbara Harper for Readers' Favorite
