This could have been half the length of 627 pages. There is far too much technical explanation that shows off the author’s vast knowledge but does very little, if anything, to advance the story or describe the characters. In fact, the characters do not drive the story; Events drive it. The story is something of a bore, but quite exciting for all that. One huge thread left hanging is what happened to the state of Russo-American relations, as the Russian president is portrayed as a maniac. Not recommended reading, unless you love thrillers.

Dale Brown does it once again. Non-stop action from cover to cover this time with the son.
