    Ripping Read

    This book had me totally immersed. For loyal Coyle fans it contains a shocking surprise. Being retired US Army, I could identify with the situations present, I was mumbling about one of the character being an SOB and thinking about similar butt heads I had served with. Absolutely NO ONE writes better, about how the Army might handle fictional situations, than Coyle.

    I liked it.

    It wasn't the best in his Team Yankee series, but a good addition to the series IMHO. The ending was predictable halfway through the book, then the author threw in a completely unexpected twist. That's why I like reading Coyle. You never know who's going to make it to the end of the book. Which is like real military life, you just never know. His characterization of the terrorists is pretty on-target. If you go to an Army base, his and WEB Griffin's books will be dog-eared and passed to virtually every member of the unit. He provides a fairly accurate account of Army life, and gives each reader a break from their reality.
    Think that's what a good book is supposed to do.

    Good story of combat in the era of modern counter-terrorism at the troop level.

    This story by Harold Coyle helps the reader understand the problems of war at the troop level. This is a good read for someone who wants to know what it is like for front line personnel dealing with the "fog of war".

    This novel takes a detailed look at terrorism in the era of Al Queda versus Western democracy. It covers both the terrorist's point of view as well as that of the US military's tools for fighting the terrorists.

    In addition, the human problems of ambition and self-serving agendas versus the diligent efforts of the men on the front line are well-explored.

    However, the book needs to be better edited. There are typos that were not caught by a proofreader.

    In addition, the story would have better served by pruning the overly detailed listing of combatants. The characters need to be introduced more seamlessly as they become actors with substantive roles, rather then just because they appear in a room.

    I believe that with better editing the power of the story would be stronger. At times, the author becomes overly pedantic. The shame is that with better editing the tale would be more widely read. It is a story that deserves a wider audience.

    Update on Coyles' Characters

    Coyle introduces a new generation of characters in Cat and Mouse. The plot is very plausible and expands on the world situation today.

    Not Authors Best

    I have read and enjoyed all of this authors novels...until now. This novel does not come close to the style and energy of his other works. It reads like a textbook. The novel rehashes the same points over and over with a fragmented story line. It seemed that the author was more interested in trumpeting his military and political views than telling a good story. Maybe he had a deadline and cranked this one out. It does a disservice to loyal fans and the 'Hero's'' they have followed since 'Team Yankee'.

    Cat and Mouse

    The book that I read was Cat and Mouse. If I were to give this book a rating I would give it a four, because it is one of the best military books I ever read. But there are two things wrong with the book, the first thing was that it had a lot of cursing in it, the other thing was that it was too gory. I like books like that but then you might not. The book is slow at the beginning but then you get into a lot of action. This group of Rangers is assigned a mission to destroy a Terrorist plan to wipe America off the map for good in a war with a lot of other countries. So the Rangers go to Asia to try and destroy the plans of Hamdani Summirat. But then you have to read the story to whether they do or if they fail. This book is for ages 16 and up. This book also reminds me of the show UNIT. Well I hope you like the book.
