6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By James Pratt on 6 Sept. 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
As this book progresses it becomes ever more ludicrous and for the first time in years I'm about to give up having already ready 75% of it.

Dale Brown's story telling is actually pretty good, but this certainly isn't the military techno thriller I was expecting. It starts out in a vaguely plausible way but rapidly descends into utter farce as the central characters unleash their utterly implausible Robocop character on the Turkish army. If you want a good trashy read (which I really do), this isn't it. Save your money and buy a Tom Clancy, Jeffrey Archer or even Clive Cussler. All of them would be classified as highbrow non-fiction compared to this drivel. I want my money (and 5 hours of my life) back!!

I'm a regular Dale Brown reader, both his own books, and the collaborations with Jim Defelice, and have enjoyed them all, and look forward to the next.

However, this is the first (hopefully, only) one that I've been disappointed by, I'm not sure exactly what it is, but it feels lightweight, the characters aren't as detailed as usual, the plot wasn't as involving.

Not out-and-out bad, but definitely not as good as it could be.

Format: Paperback
Having read nearly all of Dale Brown's previous novels, this one does not disappoint! There are good clear links back to characters and events in his previous books and the ongoing plot to oust the main character, Patrick, from his 'priviledged' position continues unabated.

The scenario, based in Turkey, is compelling and if you have read his previous books, you will notice that places and military bases mentioned in this book, where Turkey 'becomes the enermy', were previously mentioned in the context of 'friendly forces' that helped Patrick, Sky Masters, Scion International and the United States out of historic scraps with old and not-so-old enemies. There's even a reference to a weapon system from very early on in the series (for those 'in the know', used in the skirmishes with the Chinese navy) that makes a welcome return with great effect!

At one stage, I really felt that this story was suddenly going to 'flop' and to 'decelerate' rapidly, which would be out of character for Brown - I did actually have sudden doubts about Brown and wondered whether this might be a first in this respect (shame on me for doubting him!); however, thankfully, the pace quickly picked up again and an excellent and appropriate ending was delivered with crisp clarity and a certain finality (I won't spoil it for you). The story ends (if Brown's 'ongoing' stories ever do!!!) with a few obvious possibilities for future novels and you are not left in any doubt that Patrick will live to fight another day, perhaps even stronger than before and more emboldened than ever. As a bonus, a sudden twist appears at the end and the US president gets a 'friendly chat' from an unexpected source - that should make the next novel most interesting.

Sorry Dale - loved your earlier books but this is just a rehash of old concepts with nothing new to say. With the best will in the world I got close to the end but couldn't be bothered to finish it.

I liked the basic plot and again McLanahan does what what he does best, upsetting the White House and getting the job done.
In addition I enjoyed the conversations between the US and Turkish Presidents.
This book proved to me that Dale Brown is still one of the best authors in military(aviation) fiction.
Like always, he picks true world events and spins a good story around it.

I'd not read (as I recall) a Dale Brown book before, but as this was a daily deal on Kindle and I've enjoyed novels of a similar style before (judging by all the "The new Tom Clancy" plaudits on his books) I thought it would be a good holiday read for a skiing trip.

As I forgot to take my usual selection of magazines with me on this holiday, I got through it all while I was away.

It is very much in the style of Tom Clancy with lots of 'techno-babble' (much of it made up!), but it was an enjoyable, lightweight read for a holiday and certainly better than a "Tom Clancy with" book I read recently.

I'm not going to rush out and buy a load more Dale Brown's on the strength of it though, but equally I wouldn't mind picking up another some time.

Once again I was enthralled with the way that Dale Brown gets you involved with the story. It does'nt matter what the story is doing you are engaged with the people involved and you get the feeling that you know them and if anything happens you hurt the same way.
