Publisher's Summary

Admiral Lenson leads Operation Rupture, the invasion of South China, in a bid to finally end the war and restore peace. Meanwhile, Captain Cheryl Staurulakis fights to take a radical new “super ship” to sea, even though its power and capability may introduce more risk than reward. 

In Washington, Dan’s wife, Blair, conducts secret negotiations with a rebellious faction in Beijing, hoping to bring an end to the war, but her plans may be foiled by those who want outright revenge on China, not peace with them. In Western China, Teddy Oberg’s guerrilla band grows into a major insurgency, and the former SEAL master chief embraces his new role as an Islamic resistance leader. Sergeant Hector Ramos raises the flag of freedom in Taiwan while fighting his own personal demons, and in Seattle, Dan’s daughter, Nan Lenson, fights to save the world from a dangerous new epidemic.

But as the Allies plot an endgame to the war, the complicated dance of global warfare, on land and at sea, will finally trigger the nuclear Armageddon the entire world has feared for nearly a century.

Didn't make it through first Chapter!

Absolutely horrible narration.

An established, renowned writer's work rendered impotent by a monotone, speed reader.

So disappointed.

Worst. Reader. Ever.

What executive listened to this reading and thought, "Yeah, that's what I want representing my company." Stilted, New York accented. Aaaaand lots of drawn out "and"'s. As if the reader simply couldn't hold enough breath to speak more than a few words without having to pause and take another breath. It really, REALLY disrupts what the author tries to convey. Hint to Gary Galone: If the author wanted the prose to stop there and start up again, he would have put a period there and capitalized the next word. Please don't let him have read the next book in the series or I'm just going to quit here.

I wanted to see where the characters had gone to and slogged through. but I think I will skip the "exciting conclusion"

Phenomenal Military Techno Thriller!

On par with the late Tom Clancy and great Larry Bond, another tour de force by Mr Poyer. The only detraction are the occasional gaffes by the narrator in pronunciation, but it can easily be overlooked. Absolutely incredible story which took me off guard several times despite me following the narrative for the entirety of the series. Possibly my favorite setting, better than the Ryanverse.
