It's set in the US and involves the military as well as a number of members of their families. The soldiers are chasing a series of terrorists and drug smugglers and this is tied into a couple of rather improbable love stories. I found the characters to be rather one dimensional; and the behaviour and speech very formulaic. There are some brief descriptions of various locations around the world and these don't really set the stage for the action that well.
Overall, I don't think it's that great a story and I was quite dissapointed; there are many others out there that give a much better idea of the way that the special forces operate and the nature of the operations that they undertake. I certainly won't be looking out for other stories by this author.
The development of the story line keeps the reader gripped. There are numerous twists and turns to enjoy and my only criticism of this is that I wonder if the story could have spread over several books. This would have alloowed the characters to stay with us a bit longer saving my grief!!!
The detail as the characters travel through different countries and cultures is well researched which really draws you in and makes the story believable.
If you like action, thrills, drama and of course romance, you will love this book.
The author offers no sense of time or place and as for the insight claimed into military matters they just do not exist . For instance :
* nuclear codes have been taken off-site by a Colonel and put in a place only his daughter can access - never going to happen
* extraordinary rendition is not about , all in the same day , returning a person to their country of birth and handing them over to the Court there
This book is an insult to the readers intelligence and how this ever got published I just do not know .
