I needed a book to read, so I picked up Pepperdogs from my father's bedside table. I really didn't expect to like it, but I thought I'd give it a try. I didn't want to put it down. Very suspenseful, fast paced, smooth transitions, clear shifts when POV changes, and characters that are distinct. The almost superhuman qualities of the Pepperdogs themselves wasn't so outrageous that it was completely unbelievable. Instead of being incredulous, I found myself hopeful that such men of character and flaws do exist in the real men of our military and elsewhere in the world. I felt quite patriotic. I truly enjoyed this book.

A good one. Picked it up in airport for the hell of it. One of those books that's better than you think when you're finished, which is not to say you dislike it whe reading it, but that you realize it was a hell of a ride afterwards. A rare book does that. This one lets you read the military action and political background rollercoastr, wich is good and fun. What you don't expect is to pick up very cool insights, some strong heart, and then patriotic feelings as you turn the pages. I was embarrassed when I got goosebumps during a few scenes. What a chump I am. The last 100 pages are damn well written. Get it now before someone in La-La land makes it into a movie.

Captain Tyler Cosgrove, US Marine Corps Reserve, is doing his last patrol in Kosovo because he has been granted leave to fly back to the states to see his dying mother. One hour before his patrol is over, his path crosses that of Soca, a psychopathic Serb who just killed a woman in cold blood and stole her valuables. When the captain tries to stop him, his foe knocks him unconscious and takes him across the border into Serbia. Captain Mark Lang is very close to Cosgrove and is determined to find him and bring him home. Accompanying him are the men in his unit, THE PEPPER DOGS. They all come from New York and their families are all close friends. When an official rescue attempt fails, the men go it alone. Deliberately ignoring orders and prepared to take the consequences, their exploits are being broadcasted on to the net with pictures and text turning them into real American heroes. Politically and diplomatically their country doesn¿t know what to do with them but even the hard-liners hope they will make it back to safety. BING WEST has written an exciting techno-thriller that is in the same class as the works of Dale Brown and Tom Clancy. The men that comprise THE PEPPERDOGS are true heroes because they do the right thing in searching of their friend even though they have to go outside legal channels to do it. There is so much action in this novel that the reader will want to finish in one sitting to find out if everyone makes it back alive. Harriet Klausner
