I've absolutely nothing but praise about this book. I really enjoyed it and enthusiastically turned page after page and was sorry it all ended.

A great plot with a lot of action and tension to keep you going. The action threads itself around the globe and as the super powers go head to head, it appears the world is heading towards its apocalyptic nightmare.

The tension rises up and up and then you get ..... sorry folks but you won't be disappointed. A thumping good read that pushed the blood pressure up a notch or two because of its finely crafted writing style.

One of the very best cold war thrillers I have read. Full of intricate detail, and written by a master of suspence, who in real life has been there and done most of it!

Was looking for a new author in the thriller, warfare genre but was thoroughly disappointed! Same old plot and story from a dozen films and books but one of the worst I have read. Apart from a couple of people the characters come and go in a few paragraphs, the plot is predictable (and unbelievable) and even James Bond would have trouble making the 'spy' plot plausible. Even the combat scenes are lightweight (one of the main reasons for buying the book). Not a patch on Clancy, Coonts or Brown. To see some reviewers mention Weber in the same genre is an insult to them. I never give up on a book no matter how bad ... after 100 pages this came extremely close and I only carried on to see just how much of the plot I had already guessed (almost all apart from the ridiculous bits). Seems the author had the same problem as the ending was also rushed. Certainly my first and last foray into Joe Weber's library.

Same formula - world on the brink of nuclear war - but interesting because it goes back to when Russia was the big bad enemy. It really does make you think just what would the average service man have felt when, after years of exercises simulating nuclear attack this time it's for real and they are about to destroy most of the world.
I enjoyed it - if you like air force/political thrillers you should give this a try. About to download another Weber book.

THIS IS AN OLD BOOK PUBLISHED IN 1989. AMAZON KINDLE STOREFRONT STATES PUBLISHED 2012 - THIS IS WHOLLY MISLEADING.
Obviously, although fiction, much of the technical gear discussed in the book is totally out of date. Nobody looks at CRT screens anymore. All of the normal everyday things we use e.g mobiles, ipads were not in general use 26 years ago.

This is one of the most gripping book I have ever read. I had cold shivers down my spine all through the book, I was scared to turn the page, but afraid put the book down in case I missed the action. I must read the next book in the series. 1st time I have read this author, will now check his list of books.

This was my first Joe Weber read and I have to say I was surprised by the way in which it rang so true as to be difficult to know whether or not I was reading a factual report? Will be reading more from this author who is as good as Dale brown and Tom Clancy
