Romanowski is a thrill ride from beginning to end, a story of combat, intrigue, and deceit. I found Steel on Target to be a strong, exciting, and riveting read. The action sequences are very well written and the suspense and drama keep the reader's attention. The reader can almost feel like they’re on the streets of Baghdad. The plot is first rate, bold and strong, filled with conspiracies, deceit, and death. The characters, both good and bad, were satisfactorily portrayed, and the story line of Sweet and Amina was nicely developed. A very good book indeed.
