Enjoyable escapism and a quite different plot. I again marvel at the research that must have been used to develop the conjecture that makes up Cussler's many plots. I like the way that the author seemingly supports capitalist archaeology and at the same time stresses the desire to maintain the need to preserve the antiquities for the public to see and learn from.
I have read the first 3 Dewey Andreas sagas. They are great. Dewey has replaced Mitch Rapp as my favorite character ( Since there will be no more of Mitch due to Mr. Flynn's passing ) I enjoy Mr. Coes work as much as Clive Cussler, Patrick Robinson, Ted Bell, Srephen Coonts. Tom Clancy.and Brad Thor. These are all top notch writers. I am ready for Eye For An Eye.
I really don't have much time to read, so I listen to audio books on the way back and forth between the 2 colleges that I teach at.
The danger of a bio-weapon attack by militant enemies of the US
Probably have, but I am not sure if I like having two narrators.
The book really made me more aware of the nature of Islamic extremists.
I enjoy the Pike Logan series,although the concept of a secret council is a little hard to accept.
I would listen to all of Ben Coes books .I enjoyed the Character of Dewey Andreas
I could not put the book down. just had to read the next line and then the next
He is a superb reader. Shows feeling without being melodramatic.
Several things. Having read Power Down, the development of Dewey 's character, The authors treatment of the State Of Israel. The danger of Jihadist Islam. I think that in the next book the author shows the compassion of the Iranian people. Yet, the danger is still manifested. Loved the introduction of Golda Mier's grandson.
Keep up the good work
Pike Logan joins Mitch Rapp, Alex Hawke, Jack Ryan, and all of Clive Cussler's heroes in the quest to make the world safe for democracy. I must say that I enjoyed this book very much as the plot was quite involved aqnd the story moved very fast. I usually listen to these stories on the way to my classes at both colleges that I teach at, However, this book I had to listen to at home. It ended to quickly.
Patrick is back with a great book. Only problem is that it went by to quickly. His character of Mack Bedford teamed up with Arnold Morgan made for an interesting plot. I wonder what the Irish would really think about becoming out 51st state. A nuclear strike on Fort Meade Md. is a chilling possibility. Look forward to Patrick's next book
A truly interestering techo-thriller follow up to Clancy"s last book. It really gets you into the plot and does a masterful job of weaving an outstanding plot into what could quickly become real life. I have been a Tom Clancy fan since the Hunt For Red October and this one did not let me down. I can't wait for the next one. Gonna miss Melanie- Hope she comes back. The Chi-coms get what is coming to them. lou Diamond Phillips is excellent .
An excellent story based on a possible nightmare situation in this country's future. How long before the powers in Washington put a muzzle on Vince and Mitch.
I have read and enjoyed every book written by Dale Brown except this one. The plo,t while believable, is disjointed. The story jumps around too much. There is too much space and time given to technology, and the book ends too quickly. It just happens with out any real reason. Too much time is spent on McClanahan's son and his preposterous flying of a B1 bomber to make the story less fictional. And after suffering through this, our hero is killed off in the end like Masters and Elliott before him. I hope he does not kill off Dog Bastogne as quickly. I look forward to Dale's next book to see what direction he is going in.
I can only say this-- It is frightening. After the recent elections, and after reading this book, I truly worry about the future of this country. I can only hope that Thor is not a prophet.
