OMAHA, Neb. – Fiction and current events intertwine in J.L. Narmi’s novel “SEAL Team 6: bin Laden and Beyond” (ISBN 146361098X). The book centers on Gregory “Geno” Genelli, the leader of SEAL Team 6.

SEAL Team 6 was a secretive military and counter-terrorism unit within the Navy SEAL Team organization until they recently became known as the unit responsible for taking down bin Laden. Narmi had written the body of the novel prior to SEAL Team 6’s media exposure. He notes that SEAL Team 6 is a unit so secretive that the White House and Department of Defense do not recognize their existence.

Narmi believes that his novel will hit home with readers because of events currently unfolding in the Middle East. “What was once thought unthinkable is now thinkable, and no action or consequence is as remote as it may have seemed just a few short months ago,” says Narmi.

“Our respect for the brave men and women that fight each and every day to keep our country safe grows stronger when reading of the missions and their toll on people like Geno and their families.”

“This is an exciting read for an audience beyond those that have an affinity for military action books,” says Narmi. “The novel has an appeal for those who also have an interest in world politics and strategies because the body and flow of the book extends well beyond the military actions involved. It is a story as much about strategic political decisions as it is about military actions.”

Proceeds will be donated to The Navy SEAL Foundation, Wounded Warriors Foundation and other charities.
