Publisher's Summary

In the next installment of David Poyer’s critically acclaimed series about war with China, mutual exhaustion after a massive nuclear exchange is giving way to a violent peace. 

While Admiral Dan Lenson motorcycles across a post-Armageddon US in search of his missing daughter, his wife, Blair Titus, lands in a spookily deserted, riot-torn Beijing to negotiate the reunification of Taiwan with the rest of China and try to create a democratic government. 

But a CIA-sponsored Islamic insurgency in Xianjiang province is hurtling out of control. Andres Korzenowski, a young case officer, must decide whether ex-SEAL Master Chief Teddy Oberg - now the leader of a ruthless jihad - should be extracted, left in place, or terminated. 

Meanwhile, Captain Cheryl Staurulakis and USS Savo Island are recalled to sea, to forestall a Russian fleet intent on grabbing a resource-rich Manchuria. 

The violent and equivocal termination of the war between China and the Allies has brought not peace, but dangerous realignments in the endless game of great power chess. Will the end of one world war simply be the signal for the beginning of another?

Sounded Like a 3rd-Grader Reading a Book Report

The plot and writing of this book were totally overshadowed by the performing artist's insistence on pronouncing as many instances of the word " a " as a Long A (i.e., rhymes with "today." Plainly, Mr. Galone was not taught that when you read a book aloud the object is to read the text just the way you would say the text if it were not in print. The result is that the Audible listener is subjected --at almost all opportunities-- to sentences along the lines of, "Ay ship has Ay captain, Ay crew, Ay tiller, and Ay mast."

I think that even the most basic oversight of the performance would have identified this problem and should have corrected it.

My wife and I are sorry that we purchased this book from Audible.
