Another exciting, credible Jake Grafton thriller that has our reluctant hero in a no-holds-barred race to save his country from Islamic terrorists who have gotten hold of four Russian nuclear warheads. Sometimes Stephen Coonts plotting is so realistic and possible that it brings the chilly realization that it could be a game plan for actual terrorists. The mechanics of this threat are just that mundane and do-able that one hopes it is not reprinted in Farsi. Although some of the technology Grafton brings to the pursuit of the bad guys is really science fiction, the winning tactics turn out to be mostly low-tech and suitably heroic. A good fast read for techno thriller junkies.
Great action, great read. Something that could happen today, it makes you think.
Nothing particularly exciting about this book. It was worth reading, but not so good that I can't wait to read another in the series.
Writing was good. Characters flat. Plot far fetched.
If I'm stuck in an airport with nothing to read, I would try another of these.
Halfway between Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler. though not as well written as either.
