Weak ending, but overall enjoyable.
Good book along the lines of Vince Flynn's "Memorial Day", or a Tom Clancy thriller. Change the name of the offended Muslim extremist, change the name of the U.S. Special Forces hero, change the U.S. target to be struck, throw in a interferring U.S. bureaucrat, and you pretty much get the idea. In this Huston book, the target are the Navy's Blue Angels, and the weapon of choice is the shoulder fired missle.

Great story and good details on Blue Angel routines.
Loved the action and adventure and loved that there wasn't any romantic scenes to make one blush :). I found Ed likeable and loved the Blue Angels.
Was a great book! Excellent mix of military, political and lawyer work all in one fast paced book!
It was ok. Nothing that rocked my world. Felt, for some reason, that it could have been shorter.
A good fast action paced read, highly enjoyable.
Another great read from James Huston.
