Overview

The Aegean, ex-agent Michael Vance pilots the Odyssey II, a handmade replica. A Russian gunship with Arab terrorists takes a tiny island where a U.S. corporation has a laser space facility. The renegades convert the launch vehicle into a ballistic missile that can deliver their stolen nuclear warhead to any city in the U.S. Can Vance stop them?“A high-tech launch site, a missing nuke, and Arab terrorists with nothing to lose . . .”

In the sun-dappled waters of the Aegean, ex-agent Michael Vance pilots the Odyssey II, a handmade replica of the sailcraft of the ancient hero Ulysses. Out of nowhere, a Russian Hind gunship with Arab terrorists at the helm fires upon the tiny ship below. The terrorists’ destination is a tiny Aegean island where a U.S. aerospace corporation carefully guards the Cyclops 20-megawatt laser launch facility. But the company security force is no match for the firepower of the Arab invasion and the launch site is quickly overrun. With helpless horror, the executives can only watch as renegade technicians convert the launch vehicle into a ballistic missile that can deliver their stolen thermonuclear warhead to any city in the U.S.

Left for dead amid the smoking ruins of Odyssey II, Michael Vance washes up on the occupied island – and becomes America’s only hope.

STORY LEAVES YOU WISHING FOR MORE AT THE END. THE END SUCKED.

It is a little longer than most ebooks. Good verses evil. Well researched one of those books that makes me think it could happen. Good job.

I would recommend several of his other books over this one. It wasn't a bad story line, but it kind of dragged through the center of the book. The end came back around with some nice twists.

But the font size changed throughout the book. Sometimes i would have 3 different font sizes on the same page.

For some reason I just couldn't get into this story. I usually enjoy reading this style, but it was disjointed and poorly written for my taste. Maybe another day....

This held my interest. Good plot, well written with a good amount of storyline for each section before going to the next. My only complaint, as with most Smashword e-books, is that it could have been edited better. A lot of sentences had no space after the period, or so many spaces that the next sentence starts on another line, misspellings, etc. On my Nook Color, the Contents only shows the beginning and midpoint, even though the book is broken into chapters. Setting bookmarks didn't help. I ended up way off from where I wanted to be.
