Publisher's Summary

When a team of assassins murder a high-ranking North Korean general and his family in their sleep, making it look like a robbery, events are set in motion that could shake the balance of world powers. Meanwhile a US naval combat ship, the USS Milwaukee, is attacked by North Korean forces in the middle of a training exercise off the shore of South Korea, and Commander Kate Bigelow is forced to ground the ship to avoid being captured.

The crew takes refuge on a tiny island, trapped dangerously between the grounded ship and a fleet of hostile North Korean soldiers. Op-Center intelligence discovers a secret alliance behind the attack - a pact between China and North Korea that guarantees China total control of a vast oil reserve found beneath the Yellow Sea. As both sides marshal their forces for a major confrontation at sea, Chase Williams and his Op-Center organization devise a plan to spirit the American crew secretly from the island and out from under North Korean control. But the North Koreans are not finished.

In a desperate gamble, they unleash a terrorist cell on the American homeland. Only Op-Center can uncover their plan and stop it in time to prevent a major catastrophe that could lead to all-out war.

    Story
    "Not UpvTo Series Standard"

    Unkept waiting for it to get better but it didn't. The story took a long time to get moving. And, then the bit about the United Nations really no nexus to the first 3/4 of the book. Don't waste your time.

    Story
    "Into the fire dissappoints"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Perhaps some ladies over tea.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dick Couch and George Galdorisi again?

    I have listened to four of the Dick Couch series. The Pines +++


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Henry Leyva?

    Dick Hill


    Any additional comments?

    The story was slow paced, too much dithering by the principle characters. This is a military story with many weak characters.

    "A little disappointed"

    this writer appeared and sounded like somebody that did not have a
    Clue what people actually sound like or act like when they are engaged in
    Some type of combat.
    They do not do the "yes sir or no sir" when in a fire fight.

    Sorry I was disappointed

    Story
    "Unconvincing"

    Liked the girl being a good commanding officer. Thought the story lacking in imagination and/or excitement.
    Narrator voice seemed unconvincing.

    Story
    "Drama kings"

    A little bit too much so called drama for my liking. Story had real possibilities but got lost with some over dramazatiion. . Hate when what seems like a obvious solution, gets lost with a bunch of politic correctness
    And lack of aggressiveness at particular times.

    "Not bad but definitely NOT up to Tom Clancy"

    This wasn't a bad read (or listen) but it was no where near the quality of story or suspense of a true Tom Clancy story. I do miss his talent for telling a story.

    "Did not disappoint!"

    Carried the torch forward with the story line! I'm an avid fan was not disappointed with the book, was not real impressed with Henry leyvas narration. No great definition between the different parts making parts of the book hard to follow.
