    Take care with this one...

    Alright, this is one that is definitely not for the faint of heart. Looking at the other reviews it's a love it or hate it book with no in between. Well, I loved it. It has dashing heroics, a true grit antihero(this may not be a strong enough word), a bit of politics, and the dark side of terrorism. Some of the things done by both the good guys and the bad guys are downright dispicable. In the end though everything works out. Beware the dark side and enjoy some of the humor. After all, it is just a story.

    not for the faint of heart or stomach

    As if 15 years as a Seal was not enough excitment for a lifetime, Mike finds some people are just NOT destined to retire quietly.Trouble and his own demons find him. More violence and sex than some readers will care for and definently not the norm for John Ringo's books.Well worth reading though.

    Exciting and action packed

    After fifteen years as a Navy SEAL special ops agent, Michael ¿Ghost¿ Harmon retires because his body can no longer handle the pressure following degenerative damage to at least half of his major joints. However, his adjustment to civilian life proves difficult as he attends the University of Georgia as an undergrad. It is not the assignments as he used to eighteen hour days it is the inactivity to release his growing rage. So to give him something to do, the Ghost uses his skill of blending in to stealthily stalk pretty coeds and fantasize having sex with them..................... Ghost follows a beautiful blonde who suddenly is kidnapped by men driving a van. He follows them to a deserted warehouse where he learns of an odious terrorist plot to abduct and assault American women. Ghost attacks the men, killing most of the enemy and trails the survivors and their prisoners to Hartsfield where he stows on a plane heading to Syria before continuing elsewhere like Amsterdam. Wherever the trail takes him Ghost is a WMD causing havoc and death as he begins to understand the strange, but dangerous conspiracy that threatens the West.................. Ghost is a weird combination of hero and antihero as he tries to break up the conspiracy as only he can, but also is a dark soul abusing women as he does in a Bosnian brothel or just stalking the as he does on the Athens campus. Fans will be shocked by his actions as heroes are supposed to be ethical John Wayne types, but in this case he is amoral. Not for everyone, John Ringo provides a powerful techno-thriller that reminds the audience that some of our heroic ¿trained¿ killers have a dark tendency to violence.................
