    David L. Robbins, author of the war classic War of the Rats, delivers another heart-stopping, deeply researched military adventure, this time right off today’s front pages. The US military’s most highly trained and elite unit is the US Air Force pararescuers, known as PJs. All battle-hardened vets, their motto is "That Others May Live". Their singular mission is CSAR: Combat Search and Rescue. But, off the Horn of Africa, one PJ unit is tasked with a desperate assignment that goes against its oath: Take down a cargo ship full of secrets that’s been captured by Somali pirates.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story line could be reasonable.


    Has The Devil's Waters turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I stopped listening to the book with an hour and 20 minutes left, because the story line was so ridiculous and treated the PJs as if the were totally inept.


    What aspect of Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance would you have changed?

    It was okay.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Devil's Waters?

    Many of the fighting scenes would have been edited to eliminate discussions that would not have occurred at the time. The actions of the PJs to the hostage situation would be rewritten.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend this book to anyone. It is not realistic and an injustice to real life PJs.
