I have now bought another book as well as the first book in the Area 51 series so I can only hope that they are as fast paced and compulsive to read as this was.
Liked the characters and the was they bonded although did think getting rid of most of Rileys A team was a bit extreme but still there always more people to write into a storey that way.
Possibly a bit linear in places but then this genre has been done to death but you do find yourself rooting for the heroes while cursing the idiots at the top.
All in all I enjoyed this and I am sure to be buying more books from this author in one or other of the series heq has written.
The book is good on hardware, but it is also well-written, fast-paced, tense and believable. Some of the characters are a tad predictable (the bad politicians; the hardcore street fighter), but on the whole the personalities are well described, dialogue is good, and all of it is pretty convincing. I enjoyed the book in the same way I like the Amanda Garrett Navy thrillers; good pace, good tension, good story. The author served in the US infantry and Green Berets - and it shows. Good stuff.
Nevertheless, I gave another one a go, and I'm glad I did. The opening section of the book takes a while to get going (well after the opening action sequence), but once it does, then it's a great story all the way.
In essence, the story is of America sending special forces down to colombia to take on the drug cartels. Of course we have a number of twists and turns, but it really is a solid read, full of action, good characters, and some nasty villans.
Really worth giving a go.
interest in weaponry. For me, as a lay person, I found the great details about the
military personnel, their functions and the weapons they used, boring. I skipped whole
paragraphs until I got back to the action.
Dave Riley, special forces, and his team are sent to Columbia with the secret permission
of the Columbian President to destroy some drug cartels. The team is being assisted by an
expert on Columbia and Kate, a CIA agent. One glaring mistake, in my eyes, was that, despite
the mission being top secret, they used a known alcoholic - a disaster waiting to happen.
Nothing changes in that those at the top and politicians tried to distance themselves from any
fallout! The action sequences were good, when I skimmed over the descriptions of the weapons.
I am sure more military inclined readers would give this 4 or 5 stars - it was just not for me.

I gave this book 4 stars and it fully merited them. Bob Mayer knows his craft and either spent some time in the army or carried out some great research.Published on 5 May 2015 by Borosmac
