Lots of action, believable, wish there were more
I just finished the first three books in this series, all very good books. I wish there were half star ratings, this was close to five stars but not quite. Well written, lots of action, good characters, excellent good action reading.
Watch out for tears in fabric of universe,cost 10 dollars , but is only 80 pages, not worth it,wont let you post
The dodge charger thing wasn't the only fact he needs to check. I should actually, at least, look at a few firearms before he includes them in his story. One doesn't "cock" a glock, nor do they have an external safety. Also talking about needing only 2 ounces to fire a handgun is utterly stupid. The guns I use to compete with have 2 pound, that's pound, triggers. The gun I carry has about a 4 pound, that's pound, trigger. I won't enumerate any more firearm silliness but there is more. I actually enjoy Mister Astre's stories; they aren't any more than escapist junk but that's what I actually won't for my recreational reading.
Good story except for the ending felt rushed & some things felt unresolved or unexplained. Also, author needs to do some fact checking. The "original" run of the Dodge Charger 1966 - 1977 only came with 2 doors. mbf
