Hard to say without giving anything away, Amazing we have people like this in the military who go largely unnoticed. Sad also to see we still have cowards in positions of power that have more ego than honor. The story was very narrowly focused on this group and there activities saying much more would give stuff away. a good read
Very detailed story line but very predictable I enjoyed it but it was by no means a story you had trouble putting down.
pick up the pace a little at times I was wishing it would move along
might be better as a movie but I generally avoid going to the movies
it was a good story but some of the reviews were misleading about not being able to put it down. I have read many stories you can't put down and for me this didn't reach that level.
The end just comes out of nowhere like the author just ran out of material and took the easy way out.
Best to wait for this to hit the bargain category its not worth a full credit or its cover price
Learning of the events I have read a lot about growing up this book tied them all together. what i previously thought were separate issues were actually one big one and are simply amazing. If you had any doubt some operate above the law this should settle that position once and for all. If you grew up during the Reagan years and remember the headlines this book will fill in many blanks. Well researched and written it is a powerful example that anything goes when people with power want to get something done. Scary and confirms many things I already believed. If you love history, documentaries, corruption and the manipulation of power its all here. Bravo to the author for a well crafted story if true its simple to hard to believe
yup if you have anything electronic you should read this simply stunning. Im not a doom and gloom person but dam if you think your world can't turn into the early 1800s in the blink of an eye you had better read this an re-evaluate what you think you know.
a big wake up call about how fragile our world is
Read it and gauge for yourself how you live and adjust accordingly
This book was just stupid i figured with all the great reviews Id give it a shot boy what a mistake. Characters so average and a plot so overused I'm surprised it was published. Maybe Kristin Proby hit it out of the park on other books but I just want to erase the few chapters i listened to from my brain.
sad i lost a credit
A very well crafted story and one that will have you guessing until the end. Characters are very complex and the author is very skilled at describing the subject matter and taking you into this world. Its been a long time since I have read a book that I have had no idea were it will go and it was fun to just listen and be along for the ride. Book is long and I never once felt bored or knew what would happen, and thats rare these days. The Narration was well done and Im really looking forward to a follow up. I rarely give out five stars or write reviews but this booked certainly warranted writing about. If you love spy novels this one is first rate and far better than most of the stuff thats churned out and poorly done in the categories.
A book for me has to be real life and extraordinary for me to give five stars and that is the only reason this book is not five stars.
all were good in different ways
no blockbuster moments the author was skilled enough to build the plot continuously until its end.
This book and Fearless the story of Adam Brown are the best books I have ever heard or read. Both will make you feel rather small in this world and both will have your complete attention the entire time.
In both books it's more about the character and sheer force of will that amazes just read it and don't think about it. It has a five star rating for good reason.
Informative- information everyone should know but sadly won't
Yes a real eye opener stuff schools should be teaching or presenting but sadly will not.
Similar to salt,sugar,fat both books should be required reading unless of course you enjoy being sick and headed for an early death. Will open your eyes to the crap you are feeding your kids and to be blunt why the youth of today are fat and lazy. You will be sickened by how badly you have been fooled by the food companys or should i say cigarette company's that switched industrys.
First half was just laugh after laugh to listen to but the second half just slowed to a crawl,didn't finish it . Too bad the first half was so funny the time just flew bye. Was worth the credit and I can't say that about any other book I didn't finish.
Narrator- 5 stars
Hard to go wrong with Demille and this book was very good.The only thing that was missing was the humor and wise ass remarks that make his characters a little rough around the edges and very funny. Dont get me wrong thier was some of that but it was not as good as other corey books. Mr corey was more entertaining as a single guy than a husband and the only reason I would give it four stars and not five is it was a little predictable in parts, which is unusal for a nelson demille novel. Worth every penny and Im looking forward to the next one. If you have not read or listened to any of his novels you are missing out especially if your a guy.Its nice to read characters that are not worried about being politically correct and speak their mind.Demille is still one of my favorite authors.
