3.0 out of 5 stars Bit pedestrian
I get the impression that the author did an awful lot of research for this book. Trouble is, he wanted to shovel all of it into one book. His way of achieving this is to keep introducing more and more characters and more detail, which slows down the action until it becomes a very stodgy read imdeed. By the end I couldn't remember who half these people were.

9/20/1991, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, Captain Anatoli Shumakov after a tongue lashing from hire ranking officers he was pondering what next? General Valentin Malmudov handed the Captain a signed invoice (President Mikhail Gorbachev, KGB Vadim Bakatin) stating he was to take charge of the chemical & biological weapons. The Captain is going to call Colonel Kalin to verify that. The phone line did not work. Soldiers were killed & the weapons were taken.

Washington DC, General Philip Ross Wing Patton (Air Force) was about to embark on the campaign of Operation Easy Street. Mostafa Nazari (liaison) wanted to defect to the U.S. President Thornton Giles authorized a clandestine mission to extricate Mostafa & his family. General Patton carefully planned & rehearsed the mission.

General Patton had married the daughter of General Fredrick Parker Strong (Army). Senator Tyler Thrailkill (Pennsylvania) called him late at night to discuss an ongoing contract with Western Aircraft Corporation (XTF–Experimental Tactical Fighter jet) & a trust fund (W.P.). The General called his attorney Walker Holland. Senator Thrailkill continued with his invitation.

Colonel Warren Rodman (Roddy, pilot), Captain Peter Dutch Schuler (copilot) & Tech Sergeant Barry Nickens (flight engineer) were in charge of the MH-53J chopper. Major Mike Hardin (Army, Delta Force) was in charge of the ground force for Operation Easy Street. The chopper was hit by a TOW anti-tank missile.

Colonel Rodman awoke & was in the hospital in Wiesbaden, Germany. Captain Schuler was slowly recovering. Colonel Rodman was being investigated for the failed mission. The court martial proceedings were being led by Brigadier General Elliott Wintergarden. Colonel Wilburn Gridley is the presiding judge. Colonel Paul Pitts is Roddy's defense counsel & Colonel Ralph Finch (JAG) was the military counsel. Major Juan Antonio Bolivar (intelligence) & Captain Schuler were called to the witness stand.

The exciting plot starts to unfold.

What was Nikolai Romashchuk (KGB General; Major) up to & planning? Who is Adam Stern & what is he up to & planning? Are there Shining Path Peruvian terrorists (Maximov, Metreveli, Pepe, Bravo, Raul, Tomas) also involved somehow/some way?

Can the Air Force Colonel Warren (Roddy) Rodman (Alvin Easton), & a Belarus Chief investigator Yuri Danilovich Shumakov (Ivan Netto) framed for murder save Washington?

Awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A governmental bureaucratic nightmare but a very well written fact/fiction Post Cold War political thriller clandestine (spy vs spy) book. It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could make also make great clandestine movie or a mini TV series. I love lots of detail. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

Thank you for the free book (Story Cartel).
