    There was one factor that the terrorists didn’t take into account when they struck the Capitana oil platform off the coast of Colombia - slaughtering much of the crew and blowing up the platform - and that was the Capitana crew chief, Dewey Andreas. Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun....

    "Very good but starts slowly"
    Overall

    My only complaint about this book is that the narrator speaks very slowly at the start. He warms up as the story warms up, and at that point, this novel becomes fast-paced and exciting. The story is tight and interesting and deals with very topical issues.

    Some small warnings: 1) the torture scenes are pretty graphic and also frequent in the second half of the book. 2) injuries of all kinds are also handled graphically.

    At the end of the novel, the primary hero and primary villain take on superhero/super-villain qualities, and that might be irritating, but I thought that was in line with the genre.

    Expect more in this series. The very end of this book sets up a next one.
