Well to start, this ain't Tom Clancy, but it tries to be, at times it tries way to hard. Throws a lot of military terms at you, needlessly. But it is a decent story, has a good plot, wasn't the most well written book(it IS like Clancy there), But I liked it.

Few authors annoy me as much as Patrick Robinson does. The man can write, and writes well, that isn't the problem. The problem with a Patrick Robinson story is often lack of proper research. The man seems to be simply incapable of actually learning anything about the things he includes in his books! He shoots down aircraft with anti-ship missiles, has terrorists operate nuclear submarines with little or no training and generally seems to just not care that things are impossible. You are left with the feeling that he spends his research time simply browsing the Internet looking for "cool" sounding weapons and ideas, then throws them willy-nilly into the books he writes, without having any clue whatsoever to what their actual purpose and function might be.
