I have enjoyed Patrickj Robinson' work over the years - albeit I believe his earlier books were better structured and full of more interesting detail.

This latest (and presumably last) tale in the series concerning Admiral Morgan and the SAS defector, I found to be very disappointing.

The "hero" is only believable if you subscribe to the belief that anything America does to protect itself and its people is by definition morally right. I thought that - and the view that any lie will do to support that aim - is where the previous US President parted company with most of us so it's disappointing to read it being re-propagated here.

Robinson is of course entitled to his own political views - but labeling the UK a socialist country, and Tony Blair a "cream-puff" - only accentuates the extent to which he has allowed such political views to permeate his story (and I am not defending any political viewpoint here).

Robinson's penchant for detail was great when it provided backup for the story, but I am not sure how many of us are interested in which vine in which field the grape grew on every time someone lifts a glass in his tales - never mind who owns the damn field! Robinson seems to me to be very self-indulgent - or else he is trying to impress us all with his knowledge of wine. If it is the latter maybe he should write a book on wine (or maybe he is just touting for freebies!) In any event it gets very irritating and has sod all to do with the story line.

Finally, if Robinson wants to wallow in detail (geographical this time) he might like to get it right. Carlisle is not on the "east side" of England and the A66 road between the A1 to the M6 (Carlisle) does not touch the North York Moors at any point on its journey.

I have read all of Patrick Robinson's books. They are good page turners but recently I think the characters have started to get rather boring and cliched.

R. A. M. Schrevel summed it up in his review. The Navy SEAL is the "best SEAL" in the world, Jimmy Ranshaw is destined to be the head of the NSA however the most annoying character is undoubtedly Arnold Morgan who seems to be able to get the President of America to run the country as he sees fit. Even the terrorists are the "worst" in the world. There are no normal people in this book

There seem to be some fairly gaping holes in the plot, for instance when the authorities realise 2 evil terrorists have arrived on a ferry from Ireland to Wales, they don't seem to try to track them beyond this. To make it easy for them the terrorists hired a car at the port then didn't even change the number plates so all they had to do was check a few records and then they could pick up the terrorists using number plate recognition systems.

The sad thing is by the end of the book, I was so fed up with Arnold Morgan that I was hoping that the terrorists were going to succeed in killing him just to get rid of him for good.

I sincerely hope that Patrick creates some new characters for his new books as these ones are just ridiculous.

Ever since Patrick Robinson god rid of his advisor/s,his books have degraded from halfway decent to pure utter fantasy.
Ghost force was bad,this book is literally rubbish.
Top special forces around the world are made to look like bumbling children,And so called assassins are so laughable I wonder they survived getting out of bed in the morning.
I can understand the principle of the story that of revenge over a principle enemy,But who in their right mind would continue with their plans for a holiday despite being warned off several times,avoiding not one but three attempts on their life!!
For gods sake go back to an empty page and start all over again,this saga has gone on for long enough.

I've really enjoyed some of Patrick Robinson's early books and whilst some of the later ones are rehashes of the same idea they are normally a great airplane read. However this book left me feeling a little bit lectured to about the extreme right wing views of the author. I know its a good guys vs bad guys plot but come on, make it a good thriller not a party polictical broadcast. So if you can stand the rhetoric it is actually one of Patrick Robinsons better ones and would recommend.

Having been an avid reader of all Patrick Robinson's books I do not feel that this is one of his better works. Perhaps it was because there was perhaps a bit too much padding out of the story line when writing about the scenery that Ravi and Shakira were driving through while in England but it did not hold my attention like his previous novels which were brilliant. Perhaps the next one will be better.

With English not as my native language, but as reader of all of Robinson's books form first print, I think that, although it is still a pageturner and perfect beach reader, the characters start getting bored. The "always right" Arnold Morgan, the "I see everything in the World" Ramshawe, "mighty unfailable" Hunter, unfailable NSA ... What is the problem with good "other" men in the US of A..... And unfortunatly in the end, the only character ever discribed in to depth is out of the next book. Although I will certainly order this next book I hope Robinson comes with something new and a more surprising plot.
