Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In this near future novel, a much weakened America and an aggressive China are locked in a conflict that threatens to escalate into total war. After a series of provocative incidents, President Kenneth Phoenix makes an urgent call to Bradley McLanahan, the son of the heroic man who lends his name to this resilient series. As you can imagine, the young man responds to his new assignment in battle ready McLanahan style. An adroit military thriller by old hand Dale Brown (Collateral Damage; Shadow Command); now in mass-market paperback and NOOK Book.

Publishers Weekly
Following 2011's A Time for Patriots, China is the bad guy in the 18th entry of Brown's long-running Patrick McLanahan series, set in 2014 & 2015. A 21st century Cold War looms after the Chinese test a new ballistic missile, and tensions ratchet up further when a US reconnaissance plane disappears somewhere over the South China Sea. The crisis tests the mettle of President Kenneth Phoenix, who fears that he's presiding over a "failed republic". Saving the day falls to Bradley McLanahan, son of "the hero of the American Holocaust, space hero, the greatest strategic bombing expert since General Curtis LeMay." Even though his father is retired from service, he naturally lends a hand as the clock ticks down to the prospect of all-out war and the threat of nuclear weapons hovers over the continental US. The assured writing and deft plotting keep things moving forward, and Brown again proves that he's a more-than-adequate substitute for Tom Clancy.

    Screwed

    Dale Brown, you just screwed thousands of your loyal readers! Bradley is not ready yet to carry a book yet. Yeah, hes young and got his feet wet in TIGER'S CLAW but definately not ready. Somehow a grateful nation must pay him back by getting him back into the academy. Ever since FLIGHT OF THE OLD DOG every book I read gets compared to it. This book got a little choppy in places and almost lost direction in a few others but the General was always there to put it back into perspective. Now that he is gone what or who will fly the pieced together airframes (borrowed or just out right stolen) and save the world from complete distruction? Superman? A good book with a few rough spots and the ever present lets wrap the story and end it in 2 pages and go home. Don't think you will be disappointed to read this one. Just 4 stars, could have been a high 3 or a low 5. 4 is just more truthful to me.

    Not his best

    I have read almost every book Brown has written. This one is 90% back story and 10% action...I found it pretty boring.

    Highly recommended

    For Fans of this series it is another of Dale Brown's edge of your seat thrill ride.
    Just finished this yesterday and as with all of his other books, came away with the feeling that I'd just been on a supersonic flight with "The General". Sad to see that he has killed off the main character.
    However, he did set up his replacement to continue to carry the torch.
    Enjoy.

    I liked the book wish it had more action but still overall liked

    I liked the book wish it had more action but still overall liked it. You can see he put a good amount of work in the characters I have never read his other books but I am sure they were good. Overall I liked this book but like I said before I wished it had more action. My favorite part was the part when the F-22 Raptors took on the J-20s.
