Anyone writing about the US Army should know the difference between a guardhouse and a stockade.
This falls far short of my expectations for Ken Follett and leads to my speculation that the entire project was turned over to a ghost writer...and not a good one at that. After enjoying Ken Follett's work for so many years, I'm disgusted with this drivel.
After a steady diet stories about CIA agents, Navy SEALS, etc all with superhuman skills and lots of money, this is a plausible story populated with real people. Lots of details-vehicles, weapons, military, and faith mixed into a story that kept me listening. I look forward to listening to Patriots and Survivors-especially since Dick Hill is the narrator. He did a great job with the W.E.B. Griffin books.
This story held my interest from beginning to end. Truly entertaining. Thoroughly researched as well with two minor exceptions: 1954 Ford Sunliners did not have overhead dome lights and police cars in the 1950's did not have flashing blue lights.. The political diatribe in the epilogue was absolutely inappropriate.
Reads like Cliffs Notes despite being unabridged. Plot isn't credible. Female narrator out of place in an adventure novel. Other works by Jeffery Archer have been great...but not this one.
