Maybe. If they had not been on subs.
Peter did a great job
For a guy who spent a career in the submarine force to embellish the capabilities of a ballistic missile boat the way he did is a shame. The boat would have been sunken by the second shot of the Aussie sub no matter what, no emergency blow would have helped. To make the Kentucky out to be a super sub is just plain sad. Especially after being hit by a torpedo.
The crew of the Kentucky took way too long to figure out something was wrong after the third encounter with friendly forces is way wrong. I know something about boat life and no one in radio questioning the radio traffic or doing PM's on their equipment for two weeks just shows the weakness of the author.
The whole reason for redundant systems with a human element is too think outside the box, especially with nuclear weapons. The CO blindly following orders to launch 10 days after receiving launch codes and not trying to get confirmation of said orders prior to launch is incorrect control procedures. Missile boats are always in constant communication with their higher command authority with separate communication arrays to ensure proper authority command and control are always maintained.
I did not like how Riley now was dumb struck with his heart throb, Tess. He basically is just saving her hide, and not really a part of the story and trying learn about the Templar's. They have way too much sex at times when sex is not appropriate. Tess uses her body to get her way and acts just as stupid in this one as the first one.
The whole story is written in seems as a screen play instead of a novel.
Not this or by this author. I think he has a real problem with the Catholic religion.
Very descriptive account of what Mars would look like if it had life.
Brings the ability to see how someone can overcome their prejudices and work with someone who is completely different. Even going to the point of understanding their culture and language.
He brings a certain speed and confidence in his reading.
