Here’s a quick preview of Off Kilter, the first book in the Off series:
Collin Cook is a man on the run – from many things. This young father is struggling with his career, his increasingly strained marriage, and the pressures of life when he is sent into a tailspin by the sudden, tragic loss of his family. Losing them was a painful shock. Witnessing the accident over the phone was enough to send him over the edge. In “Off Kilter”, we follow Collin around the world as he battles with guilt and the pain of his loss while trying to stay one step ahead of his would-be captors. These would be captors have targeted the unstable Collin and have been dispatched to retrieve the huge settlement he received. At the same time, they have framed him so that law enforcement agencies have joined the hunt, believing that he is involved in major cyber attacks on several large banks. With the help of his long-time friend Lukas Mueller, a highly trained security expert, Collin must find a way to stay alive and maintain his freedom while teetering on the brink of emotional collapse.
Some reviews of Off Kilter by those who have read it:
By Bernard Clyde
This book qualifies as” Just Couldn’t Put It Down.” As the story line was developed and the scene was switched to locations all over the world, I grew more and more attached to the main character, Collin, as he time after time eluded law enforcement and the “bad guys” who were both hot on his trail. Each location and scene are expertly developed by the author and the suspense builds with every twist and turn in the story. I can hardly wait for the sequel.
By Dana Calderone
I enjoyed reading this well-written book. Glen Robins did a good job of creating complex characters, complete with human flaws, and yet capable of accomplishing incredible things, while still remaining believable. The story was well told and the author avoided creating any of those plodding sections of a book that most readers would skim through. He found the perfect balance between the level of detail required to make a reader feel like they are witnessing these events without providing so much detail that the reader loses interest. As a fellow author, I know this is not particularly easy to do, particularly when you are creating a book in which suspense is the key ingredient that hooks the reader and makes them want to keep reading. I will definitely read this author’s future work. Thanks for the good read, Glen Robins!

I just finished reading Glen Robins new book, Off Kilter. I must say that this novel is a very fun read, full of adventures, threats, and quick travels throughout the world. The hero of the book, Colin Cook, has recently lost his wife and family in a tragic accident. He also inherited millions of dollars and has come under the eye of crook who wants Colin’s money and his life. Thus starts the game of hide and seek and starts the travels throughout the world . Colin had good friends that help him elude the bad guys and he also meets people that believe in his innocence. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more adventures of Colin Cook in the future.

Here’s the preview of “Off Course,” my second book and the continuation of Collin Cook’s journey:
Collin Cook has been running from trouble for months. In Off Course he runs straight into the very trouble he’s been trying to avoid. Since receiving a large insurance settlement stemming from the tragic accident that claimed his wife and children, Collin has been targeted by Pho Nam Penh, the nefarious cyber terrorist and owner of the insurance company. Penh wants his money back and has finally ensnared Collin. Penh applies every bit of leverage available against Collin in order to gain access to the accounts where Collin has stashed the money.
Also at stake is the information contained on Collin’s computer, which links him with his friend and security consultant, Lukas Mueller, a high-ranking, clandestine National Security Agency specialist. The mysterious Lukas uses his expertise and resources to assist Collin, who is pushed to his limits. In order to stay alive, Collin must employ every survival instinct he has and follow Lukas’s guidance.
Interpol and the FBI continue their search for the missing Collin. They still believe that he is involved with Penh’s syndicate and hoping he can help them bring Penh to justice.
In order to save himself and those he loves, Collin is forced to do things he never dreamed of doing, leaving him to grapple with the long-reaching consequences.

Here are a few reviews:
by Chad H.:
I enjoyed Glen’s first book and his latest, Off Course, did not disappoint. This picks up right where Off Kilter left off; Collin heads into deep waters where his nemesis pursues him relentlessly for information that can dramatically compromise world security. There’s double trouble on land where Collin’s loved ones becomes targets. I appreciate Glen’s subtle treatment of graphic and disturbing events of the kind you would expect from the evil mastermind at the center of the hunt for Collin. I found myself unable to predict what would happen around the next turn, or whether Collin could survive mentally or physically the barrage of assaults unleashed on him. Looking forward to round three!
By Jennifer S.:
I read both Off Kilter and Off Course and could hardly put them down!!! They are like the movie series “24”, fast paced, constant action, and you never want to stop reading, except you have to so you know what happens next. I can hardly wait for the next book, to see how everything ends up.
“Off Guard” is the third and final installment of the trilogy.
For months, Collin Cook has been running from Pho Nam Penh, the nefarious cyber terrorist. But after Penh subjected Collin’s loved ones to his heinous barbarism, in an attempt to force Collin to give in to his demands, Collin is now running at Penh. In Off Guard Collin is taking the fight to Penh before Penh can bring his diabolical plan to fruition. If he can pull it off, Penh’s plan would cripple the world’s economy and change the global power structure forever. His team uncovers the secret of Collin’s run of good luck and lures him into their trap.
Collin must avoid capture long enough to buy Lukas Mueller’s team of trained operatives some time to gather and coordinate their offensive. To do this, Collin must battle through pain and challenges to stop Penh once and for all. But Penh has a few tricks up his sleeve to keep his American nemeses struggling to catch up. How can Collin, an ordinary guy with no special training, hope to overthrow a mastermind like Pho Nam Penh? Will Penh succeed at toppling the US and ending its long reign as a superpower?
These questions and more are answered in Off Guard.
