Griffin's 'upper crust go to war' formula is usually fairly entertaining, but in this work it is just plain dull. The plot is of the 'one thing lead to another and then the story ended' school, and the 'things' themselves are just not very interesting. I fear the old man is losing it and the son isn't up to the task of assuming his mantle. Read the first five 'Corps' books and skip this pale imitation.

I've read the previous books in the series and while they aren't the best books I've ever read, they at least had some sense of going somewhere. This one was all over the place and, as usual with the series, doesn't end, it just stops. It's as though the authors had to write a minimum number of words like a high school essay and when they reached the minimum they stopped. Too many plot lines are left hanging in mid-air. To those who wrote that they've 'loved' the previous books, I recommend Ludlum's 'Borne' books as a much better alternative.

In addition to poorly developed plot lines and wooden characters, the book contains some errors in research. For instance, J.Whit Stevens, a Philadelphia blueblood, worked in Philadelphia and ate 'gourmet' meals at the Union League of Philadelphia. In addition, Mr.Stevens and his relatives were supposed to have worked at Mellon Bank in Philadelphia (pp.115-116). This could not have been possible. Mellon was a Pittsburgh bank that only entered the Philadelphia market in 1982 when the State of PA authorized multi-bank holding companies and Mellon bought the Philadelphia-based Girard Bank.

Very disappointing to see Mr. W. E. B. Griffin's name shown as one of the author's. At the very best, this is a poor mimic of Griffin's style. I hope it the last.

This book feels like the author ran out of time, and slapped a 5 page ending on an incomplete unedited manuscript. An action/adventure story with no climax. Like many of his recent books, the elements of the Griffin formula are present, but done without the style or skill of his earlier works. Most of Griffin's series books can stand on their own. This one can barely stand as part of the series.

I have put this book down less than 100 pages in and will likely never pick it up again. And this from a guy who has read the Brotherhood of War, Corps and Presidential Agent series at least twice each. The inane level of detail is mind-numbing and would distract from even a good plot, which this book does not have. Clearly, Griffin lent only his name and not his talent or expertise to this undertaking. The subtle nuances Griffin uses to make his characters likable were missing and I didn't even recognize characters I had spent the previous 4 books getting to know. I am extremely disappointed and hesitant to even try to finish out the series - will I discover my friends from the first 4 books or more of the same from this book?
