    After receiving an Ereader for Christmas I came here to purchase the ebook version of the paperback I was currently reading. When it became obvious I could not find my place in the ebook I returned here to determine if this was one of those MODIFIED versions. Nowhere was that info available. I am terribly disappointed in this NEW version of books and will sell the ereader and go back to buying used paperbacks for my reading material.

    Utterly unrealistic & horribly written

    Inept even by Robinson's standards. A Saudi prince, disgusted with Western-decadence and the financial destabilization of Saudi Arabia, colludes with France to destabilize Saudi Arabia and topple its king. France teams Ravi Rashood (Hamas mastermind of other Robinson books) with Jacque Garmoody (a Morrocan-born French commando), throws in its subs, missiles and Al Qaeda guerrilas (working with Hamas!?!?) to achieve its ends. Though hailed for his realism, Robinson has never been less plausible. As in 'Nimitz Class', he has high-profile targets falling prey by means that would have been anticipated (in ¿Nimitz¿, an aircraft carrier is sunk by a rogue sub even though carriers have anti-submarine sensors and weapons in ¿Hunter¿, guerrillas basically walk onto Saudi bases and destroy the Saudi military on the ground ¿ security? Saudi petro-industrial sites fall to sub-launched missiles fired with impunity by French subs, even though Iran has had such weapons for years.) Despite the mideastern action, Robinson¿s real focus is on French backers. By the end of the story, it is France (and not the virulently anti-American and Anti-Israeli regime they¿ve installed) that face Yankee wrath. In pages that must be read to be believed, Robinson¿s heroes rail against France, not only for their role in the Saudi coup, but for their opposition to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, about 6 years before the events of this book. (Given the decadence of the Saudi regime as documented in his book and the fact that Robinson¿s characters don¿t appear affected at all despite the shutdown of the Saudi oil industry, when added to the instances of American mass-destruction perpetrated in Robinson¿s other books it¿s hard to justify Robinson¿s anti-French ire.) Nevertheless, the French fear disclosure of their role ¿ but Robinson¿s French are so inept, they make discovery inevitable. When recruiting Garmoody, they make no secret of France¿s role The French have Rashood and Garmoody meet on French soil (in trademark Robinson style, they meet in a restaurant where the menu gets most of the attention) after flying Rashood on a French airliner. (Robinson appears to have prepared his French characters by watching a lot of ¿Pink Panther¿ movies.) Though a technothriller, there¿s very little technology in detail on display (always a weak spot for Robinson), and other details simply kill the realism. (In one unbelievable scene, an Israeli hit-team confronts its prey and, in a demonstration of what Robinson considers the fine-art of assassination, sprays the room with gunfire.) Despite critics¿ insistence to the contrary, the genre has bred writing substantially better than Robinson¿s torturously bad prose.
