    When Navy SEAL Mack Bedford's fellow officers are brutally killed by Iraqi insurgents using a cruel, new anti-tank Diamondhead missile, Mack avenges their murders by gunning down the then-unarmed attackers, ultimately getting himself court-martialed and kicked out of the Navy. To make matters worse, Mack then learns that the Diamondhead missiles were sold illegally by French industrialist and infamous politician Henri Foche.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Disastrous Departure of Style and Genre"
    "Solid Robinson Thriller"
    Overall

    Patrick Robinson delivers a solid military thriller in Diamondhead on par with his early books. I admit that I do like this sort of thriller. But, it's not for everyone. I had grown tired of Robinson's characters, which had become somewhat stale. So, it was with some trepidation that I purchased this book. I was pleased.

    Our hero is Navy SEAL Mack Bedford, who finds himself on trial for his actions after watching his comrades attacked by a banned weapon. Mack returns home to a dying son, a strained marriage, and a town in trouble. Circumstances push him to make difficult decisions. One does have to put up with a bit of political and military propaganda, as with other Robinson novels. But, that's part of the admission price.

    Normally, I would give this book only three or four stars as it was solid, but not spectacular. The narration is performed wonderfully by actor Charles Leggett. He brings all the characters to life perfectly. Leggett somehow captures different accents, different attitudes, different emotions in all of the characters. His performance adds a sense of strength and intensity to this specific story that is distinct from his other narrations. The scenes really do come alive. I listen in the car and I was excited to continue the story. I am sold on Leggett as a narrator!
