David Berens is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the highly-read Troy Bodean Tropical Thriller series, the action-packed, Ryan Bodean Action-Adventure series, and the international espionage Chris Collins CIA Thrillers.


"Troy is the action hero we don't deserve, but the one we've always wanted: he's capable, experienced, and trained, and brash in the best of ways.

The series feels like a television series that mashes together James Bond with a rusted pickup truck, or Jack Reacher with a margarita."

Nick Thacker

"Hat Check thrills right from the start to its resounding finish.

If you can't enjoy this book, you'll need to consult a physician about getting that stick removed."

Andrew Allan

Bestselling Author of the Walt Asher Florida Thrillers

"I nearly wet my pants from laughing! Never did I expect to laugh so much from reading a "thriller". Author David F. Berens skillfully wedded a who done it with comedy!! The character sketches were rich and memorable: the blond twins, one eyed Willie, Darren, and Bigguns ...so much fun reading this book.

Amazon Reviewer

"What a read! The perfect book to take with you on vacation, but even better when reading it on the beach! You just seem to feel what's happening in the story.

It encompasses every theme you might want, some mystery, murder, humor, and just enough anticipation of a love affair! I'm anxiously awaiting the next one!"

David Berens has traveled up and down the East Coast and has been a tourist at every beach from Key West to Pawleys Island.

Today he calls Knoxville, Tennessee home, but constantly dreams of sun and sand and ocean breezes. He has a beautiful wife, a whip-smart little girl and a rambunctious little boy who remind him daily of why he is alive.

A constant reader of Florida Fiction, Dave has enjoyed the likes of Carl Hiaasen, Tim Dorsey, Randy Wayne White, Laurence Shames, and Leonard Elmore just to name of few. So, when he decided to create a series of Island Thrillers, he did his best to capture that zany quality so many of these amazing writers use in their work.

Someday, he hopes he'll be able to enjoy writing his books with a view of the ocean...
