Overview

Act of War (Jason Richter Series #1) by Dale Brown

From the corridors of power in Washington to the frontlines of the war on terror — in Act of War, Dale Brown takes you to the heart of the action and introduces Jason Richter, his most exhilarating character to date.

Near Houston, an oil refinery belonging to one of the world's largest energy companies is destroyed by a "backpack" nuclear device — just one of many attacks being perpetrated around the world by a group whose mission is to stop global corporations and government organizations from plundering the world's natural resources in the name of profit.

Jason Richter and his top-secret high-tech military unit, Task Force TALON, are called in to track down and defeat this new brand of international terrorism. Richter knows that the only way to snare his opponents is to beat them at their own game: Be unconventional, swift, and brutal.

If he fails, it won't be just the lives of his team that are lost, but America itself.

Action is good. Love the cids! Definitely not mclanahan but very enjoyable. Would like more on the miltary tactics and firefights. My biggest complaint, how many languages do i need to know to keep from skipping pages? Russian? Spanish? I am addicted to tech stuff and blowing stuff up and all that so how about a little more of that. Richter is cool, kinda. Last request, tone down the sex scenes, save them for the movie, reading about the south american gamma agent boning his pygmy indian wife while she breastfed their baby was a little ummm, eww.

The book manages to combine all the things I like in a story: action, comedy, life-like situations, terror (terrorist terror), and romance. THIS BOOK HAS BECOME ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!

This is an entertaining read but it is not Dale Brown's best book. I would like to see a connection to the Dreamland group he so often writes about so that the two special units are more integrated in saving the world.....

Terrorists strike an America oil refinery with a small nuclear bomb. In steps Major Jason Richter, Army nerd extraordinaire, with his super CID exoskeleton. The hero of the hour saves a busload of kids, along with a beautiful reporter, and promptly gets placed on the newest war-on-terror team. The team starts to tackle the terrorist group responsible, but the team seems to be set up for failure with conflicting personalities and egos. The battles rage on around the globe, as Major Richter tries to pull the team together, find the mastermind behind the plots, and save his country from another disastrous attack. Techno, yes thriller, no. This book started out with promise and I really wanted to like it. But after the introduction of the major characters and gadgets, it quickly becomes cliched and predictable. The nifty new weapons systems would play much better with believable characters and a realistic plot. The pacing is fast, but the many twists and turns feel forced. Dale Brown is perfectly capable of writing exciting techno-thriller books with good characters ¿ but this is not one of them.
