Great read! Can't wait for the next installment.

I really enjoyed this book. I was introduced to John Birmingham's work via his earlier trilogy (Designated Targets, Weapons of Choice and Final Impact), and enjoyed them all. I would compare him favorably to mainstream authors like Clancy, Coonts and James Cobb. His characterizations are better in this book, and his narrative flow is smoother than his prior work. If you like action, strong characters, a great storyline and a sense of impending doom and idiots getting what they deserve, this one's for you.

Would have given this 2.5 stars if I could have. There are too many unconnected storylines in the book. Some of the stories are actually kind of interesting, but just as you get interested in one storyline, the author decides it's time to devote 50-75 pages on some story that isn't particularly good. Had to resist the urge to just skim ahead.

    Slow Moving & Graphic

    I've read a lot of books in my lifetime and I haven't read one that dropped as many "F bombs" as this one! It was a very detailed book - jumping around several different locations describing in great detail what was going on in those areas. Lots of violence and language. Looked good in the book store, but I wasn't very impressed.

    Interesting storyline.. poorly constructed script

    The idea of this book was interesting, but there was too many running storylines. I couldn't wait to finish the book... to end the boredom. The author took a lot of time to develop characters, but I felt the pace was too slow. When the book ended, it was obvious there would be future books, but this book felt unfinished.
