Cat and Mouse by Harold Coyle

Deep in the sweltering jungles of the Philipines, Nathan Dixon and the Third Regiment of the Seventy-Fifth Ranger Battalion are fighting an elusive and deadly force. Nathan and his unit face one bloody encounter after another with a small but highly trained corps of Islamic terrorists. And though the death toll keeps rising, the Rangers' battalion commander has convinced most of his superiors that he has an all but foolproof plan for defeating the enemy. But back in Washington, Nathan's father, Lieutenant General Scott Dixon, the deputy chief of staff for operations with the U.S. Army, realizes that if the mission continues, many more Americans will be wounded or killed—perhaps even his own son.

A dual game of cat and mouse is played out both in the jungles of Mindanao and in the halls of Washington, D.C. Nathan Dixon must deal with a battalion commander whose willing to set aside his battalion's safety for personal gain. Scott Dixon must go head-to-head with a stubborn chain of command that refuses to alter a plan of attack, even in the face of a losing effort. And all the while, a new terrorist is rising to power in Southeast Asia, Hamdani Summirat, radical Islam's most charismatic and strategic leader yet. And everything is falling perfectly into his master plan.

This book had me totally immersed. For loyal Coyle fans it contains a shocking surprise. Being retired US Army, I could identify with the situations present, I was mumbling about one of the character being an SOB and thinking about similar butt heads I had served with. Absolutely NO ONE writes better, about how the Army might handle fictional situations, than Coyle.

It wasn't the best in his Team Yankee series, but a good addition to the series IMHO. The ending was predictable halfway through the book, then the author threw in a completely unexpected twist. That's why I like reading Coyle. You never know who's going to make it to the end of the book. Which is like real military life, you just never know. His characterization of the terrorists is pretty on-target. If you go to an Army base, his and WEB Griffin's books will be dog-eared and passed to virtually every member of the unit. He provides a fairly accurate account of Army life, and gives each reader a break from their reality. Think that's what a good book is supposed to do.

Enjoyed following Nathan Dixon as he navigated both the jungles of the Philippines and the U.S.Army's bureaucracy while trying to keep himself and his men safe from different kinds of terrorists. A good read from Mr. Coyle.

Coyle introduces a new generation of characters in Cat and Mouse. The plot is very plausible and expands on the world situation today.

I have read and enjoyed all of this authors novels...until now. This novel does not come close to the style and energy of his other works. It reads like a textbook. The novel rehashes the same points over and over with a fragmented story line. It seemed that the author was more interested in trumpeting his military and political views than telling a good story. Maybe he had a deadline and cranked this one out. It does a disservice to loyal fans and the 'Hero's'' they have followed since 'Team Yankee'.

The book that I read was Cat and Mouse. If I were to give this book a rating I would give it a four, because it is one of the best military books I ever read. But there are two things wrong with the book, the first thing was that it had a lot of cursing in it, the other thing was that it was too gory. I like books like that but then you might not. The book is slow at the beginning but then you get into a lot of action. This group of Rangers is assigned a mission to destroy a Terrorist plan to wipe America off the map for good in a war with a lot of other countries. So the Rangers go to Asia to try and destroy the plans of Hamdani Summirat. But then you have to read the story to whether they do or if they fail. This book is for ages 16 and up. This book also reminds me of the show UNIT. Well I hope you like the book.
