"This time, it's personal", is not a good way to die. So when the President of the United States gets confirmed intelligence that a shipload of the stuff is headed for Florida, he orders that every stop be pulled out. Including bringing in his ultimate weapon: The Kildar. Heart-sick over the deaths of so many of his followers, former SEAL Mike Harmon, hero of Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Stain and Unto the Breach, decides to sit this one out. WMDs headed for the U.S. no longer matter to the newest in an ancient line of mercenary leaders. But when his best friend and intel specialist both are seriously wounded in an ambush aimed at him, the Kildar gets his gameface on. The terrorists will learn to fear the Ghost all over again. Set in the Bahamas and Florida, A Deeper Blue is a fast-moving thriller that starts off at a rocket pace and never slows down. The novel proves once again the adage that sometimes it takes bad people to do good things. Fortunately, Mike Harmon is a very bad man.

The main action takes place in Disney World and at this point you know that the Kildar can take care of bad guys and likes his women (or teenagers sometimes) so this time he gets to do much of both.
Terrorists get some VX gas into the Disney World park and its up to Mike and his teams to stop it as usual.
I like how this story has gone so far, Mike or the "Kildar" as hes known now has become a cool character, although he does like to do some pretty questionable stuff he also saves people at his own risk even when its not part of the mission hes on so hes not that bad of a guy.
There are a few times when he tells someone hes not a good guy he just does good things from time to time and this might not be what most people think is good but at least hes doing good things.
the many accents given for each character
yes, very fast pacrd
the different voices
when mike harmon rescued the daughter at Disney
"A great addition to a great series"
Paladin of Shadows is turning out to be fantastic series and a must read for any John Ringo fans.
After listening to Ghost and Kildar; I have just purchased the rest of the series. The books follow on like in the Legacy of the Aldenata series.
Great fun, fast paced action with an epic story line but thought provoking as well, with interesting details about different styles of military force organisation, Special Forces tactics and strategy, geopolitics and terrorism, espionage, cutting edge military technologies, even ancient warrior history and beer brewing…!
While not hard Science fiction when compared to his later books, this series introduces many of the themes and big ideas that he develops in latter books like the Troy Rising series and in the Last Centurion, also passing references to the ideas of the great Robert A Heinlein.
Military and Adventure SF fans will certainly enjoy this as will all fans of more traditional military authors like Chris Ryan and Andy McNab, Tom Clancy and Patrick Robinson also those who enjoy Adventure and Thriller writers like Wilbur Smith, Larry Bond, Stephen Coonts, Dale Brown, Matthew Reilly.
