Okay plot and the battle scenes were good but the reader is terrible and detracts from what little the book offers. Don't think I'd recommend it and I'm not going to bother with the rest of the series.
This is another in a long line of recent get the Muslim terrorists, but with great courtroom drama to go along with it. Well-paced action with everyone's favorite target, politicians.
One can read many comparisons to our current administration in this book and I think it's pretty deliberate but that makes it that much enjoyable! Narrator also does a great job handling many characters with ease.
I hesitated to purchase this book because I thought Clancy's recent novels were getting a little mundane. I'm glad I got this one because it's one of Clancy's better ones in a long time. Fast paced, great plot, and lots of action. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
I always grab every Burke book that comes out, knowing I won't be disappointed, but this one caught me by surprise. This turned out to be an incredible journey back in time to the 30's & 40's, to the dust-bowl era through WWII and the boom afterwards with characters that Burke brings to life reminiscent of Faulkner. And with Will Patton voicing the book, you don't just listen, you become emotionally involved. I won't forget this book.
Stephen King didn't rely on anything supernatural in this book, which I think is a first. But he does a masterful job in showing the real terror that can be inflicted from the mind of a psychopath. This book will have you rooting for the good guys, a total unlikely bunch of misfits, but also give you unique insight into the mind of a killer. This is a great, edge-of-your-seat story that will keep you listening until the wee hours. And no one delivers better than Will Patton.
If you have been looking for the vacuum left by Vince Flynn and his Mitch Rapp, this book will leave you feeling that void has been filled. A non-stop action packed book with great characters, including an amazing war-dog, you won't be able to put this one down. Extremely well researched, this book also delves into obscure locations along with a blur between fact and fiction with its scientific premises. If you like this book as much as I did you'll want to also read Rollins' Sigma Series in order. You won't be disappointed!!
uninteresting premise, followed by a predictable outcome with a boring reader. Skip this one.
I was somewhat reluctant to buy a book from 1980, but I was familiar with Stuart Woods and his Stone Barrington series and thought this would be a typical light, fun, read but I was blown by the depth of this book. Reminded my of To Kill a Mockingbird and In the Heat of the Night. This was a generational murder mystery wrapped loosely around an in-depth story of the Deep South in the 20's to the 60's. Wonderfully woven and emotionally charged, this book will have you reading to the wee hours.
Keeps you guessing until the very end. Intricately woven plot with great action and a great reader!
Very enjoyable read about an attorney that plays fast and loose with the rules; especially when he believes his client is innocent. Will keep you turning those pages!
Great battle scenes but thought the rest of the book was pretty boring. Failed to keep my attention and interest. The plot revolved around trying to prove the current Russian president was really a thug from the past and the narrative kept switching back 30 years and to today. Don't think I need an entire book to convince me Russian leaders could possibly be former bad guys. (think Putin)
