    For WEB Griffin fans only

    Fairly predictable plot with much reliance on previous books in the series. OK summer read, but should be fan of this series.

    second time disappointed

    As a Parris Island, WWII, China and Korea Marine I have read all of W.E.B's books plus his series on Philly Police and the Army series. I enjoyed all of 'his' works. This is the first I am putting down without finishing. I should have known better after reading the other one he did with Butterworth, never again.

    wasted money

    It is the first time I have put one of Griffin's books down without finishing. I should have known better because the last one he co-authored with Butterworth left me the same way. Never again.

    Books are not the same

    The last couple of books that have been co-authored have not had the in depth research or detail as the first ones. Have read all W.E.B.'s books in all the series. The lastest are not up to previous standards. It's a shame as it has given us a great deal of pleasure, regardless of the series, to have read and discussed his writings.

    Very Disapointing

    I was very disappointed with this book. I have read so many of his books and looked forward to another good read. It felt like so much of the information was just lifted from previous stories, too much time trying to bring readers up-to-date about everyone mentioned in the story. The plot did not really get exciting, just very bland.

    So Much Anticipation, So Little Delivery

    I am a huge fan of Griffin's, so being nergative is not easy to pull off. This book was a disappointment due to far too much talk and far too little action. Nothing really happens until page 144 and even then it barely rises to the level of tedium. I just read it like a not very exciting literary assignment in college, thinking 'Let it be over soon, please!' The characters are stale and I found myself just plain not caring what happened to them. This is so atypical of his books that I'm baffled as to the reason.

    A reviewer

    First, I am a big fan of Griffin's and look forward to virtually everything of his that's published. I can't say that for this series, other than the earlier books 'written as Alex Baldwin', and particularly this book. Perhaps it's the combination with his son. Whatever, there just seems to be too much talking about things and very little doing things indeed, the book doesn't really begin move forward until about page 144. Even then, although the appearance of David Niven, et al, plus their repartee was a pleasant diversion, I just couldn't bring myself to care about the characters or what happened to them. I just wanted to get to the end. Reading shouldn't be like finishing an assignment, but this felt like it. And that's a shame, because everything else he writes is just a delight to read.
