A Vince Flynn or David Baldacci Patrick Robinson is not!
At first I thought I had picked up a Clive Clussler novel by mistake.Patrick's main character is portrayed as some kind of patriotic super intelligent, super strong, super hero who everyone bows down to and he keeps reminding you of this throughout the entire book. He uses terms he doesn't understand and just makes up things as he goes along, (rolling stairs to get into a C-130 or grenades with 20 second fuses). If he continues to write about technical stuff he should take a class from Andy McNab or go back to writing about submarine warfare, which he seems to have a little better knowledge of.
