I'd like to thank Mr. Bear for his excellent representation of the EOD community in the book Quantico. Made it believable and enjoyable. As a former EOD tech it's hard to read most techie thrillers that deal with the subject. Good research is hard to find, and most appreciated.

Good to hear, Robert! Thanks. EOD work requires very special people and very special training.

I also recently "read" (technically, listened to the audiobook) Quantico and absolutely loved it. I am very anxious to read Mariposa.

I am sorry, but I am missing the EOD reference. What does this abbreviation stand for?

I also found a reference in Quantico to a company that sounds very familiar to the one I work for... purely coincidental... :) Maybe I will take a few moments to relate it to Mr. Bear sometime.

Keep the good work. The praise is well deserved.

Thanks, Jon. EOD refers to Explosive Ordinance Demolition. Bomb squad.
