A new addition to the Kildar military adventure series created by John Ringo. Sequel to Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Slain and Unto the Breach.
After saving America from Middle Eastern terrorists, even Mike Harmon and the Keldara could use a vacation. Of course, the Kildar's idea of a vacation includes taking down pirates in the Singapore Straits. But when he finds computer chips designed to run nuclear reactors in the pirate booty, Harmon has a new mission thrust upon him - discover how bottom-feeding thieves got their hands on top-secret technology.
The chips are headed for newly democratic Myanmar, a country vital to American interests in the region. Now Harmon finds himself in a desperate race to learn who stole the chips and why.
From glittering Hong Kong to the slums of Thailand to the swamps of Myanmar, Harmon and his Keldara team follow a trail of death and deceit across the glittering underbelly of Southeast Asia. And as the path winds through dark jungle and slave labor camps to the heart of newborn democracy, Harmon must devise a way to prevent the nasty overthrow of a nation's capital by totalitarian tyrants. But if there's one thing Mike and the Keldara specialize in, it's doing what it takes to give freedom a chance.

Performance of the story is terrific, however ,the basis of the story line does not seem plausible to me. Going all the way to Asia to train commandos in underwater activity and counteracting piracy? The book has a lot of errors (typo's?)..like a several hundred foot yacht that can only handle 20 people?
The story characters are as good as usual, and the narrator is excellent. I hope the next book holds together as good as the first 5 did.
I found myself genuinely interested in the characters and its difficult to believe it was read by one person. Jeremy Arthur did a great job.
It is an interesting thriller that engages the listener, but is misfiled as a Sci Fi book.
I am still glad to have purchased the entire series.
If I ever saw Mountain Tiger Beer I would probably buy a case irrespective of the cost. The author and Narrator did a great job of selling the stuff. Perhaps some vertical marketing opportunities available there.
"Just as good as the earlier books in the series"
Continues on from the previous 5 books in the series, so if you enjoyed those then you will like this one also.
But start at the beginning as Paladin of Shadows is a fantastic series and the books and characters do follow on, a must read for any John Ringo fans.
While not hard Science fiction when compared to his other books, this series introduces many of the themes and big ideas that he develops in other books like the Troy Rising series, Legacy of the Aldenata and in The Last Centurion.
