Modern. Gripping. Accurate.
Any good techno-thriller such as the Tom Clancy books.
Great character acting and good pace.
Not a particular moment I can identify. What moved me is that fact that drones are not the future any longer. Drones are now.
Good book well worth the price or a credit.
Nothing. One star is the lowest you can give and it doesn't even deserve that. It is the worst "military thriller" I have ever tried to listen to. I and any military person or family will be very offended by this book. Record yourself chanting "No blood for oil" or any other bumper sticker intellect anti-military-anti-American slogans and just listen to that for 10 hours and save your audible credit.
No. This is not a military thriller. It is political trash and should be in some other category. Actually is should be in the trash can.
No, he is the perfect voice for this POS and if he had any dignity, much less patriotism, he would have refused to read this. The author, the reader and anyone associated with this crap, including Audible.com, should be ashamed and definitely not supported in any way.
Anger and disappointment. It is leftist anti American anti military propaganda. Only the "Blame America First Idiots" would get anything out of this book.
A not so subtle promotion of the America haters agenda thinly disguised as a military thriller. I clicked on it in a hurry and wasted an audible credit. I will be more careful in the future.
I guess the title and lines in the description such as "Guarding a deadly secret military cargo - a new missile system brokered through a spook under the guise of a Middle Eastern arms dealer - is all in a day's work. These are the risky yet vital jobs that governments will never admit." lead me to believe this book was more about "deniable missions and black ops." It turned out to be a boring listen for me. I didn't make it through the entire first half. Aside from a gory genocidal paragraph or two about what some of his mates saw and did at the beginning of the book, it was mostly just long storys about some old mate or other he knew of served with who retired from the SAS and then went to work for company x or company y and how he made good in the corporate world, etc. If there were any actual war stories or black op type stories you have to sit through way too many "When he finally quit SAS his old buddies called him for a good job opportunity here or there.
You can sum up the half I listened to with just a few sentences: "You can use your service buddies to network and find good jobs after you get out of the SAS. The end."
Save your book credit, unless you need motivation to quit the SAS and start earning big bucks in some foreign land. I'm sorry to be so hard on this book but I have been with audible for years and honestly this is the first one I couldn't finish. Let me state again that I did not listen to the entire book so take this review for what it is worth.
