This was an excellent book, in and of itself. However, if you read Davis' first book, The General, which was phenomenal, it is roughly the same story, just rewritten.

This is the first I have read from Patrick David and have to say I actually liked it. I'm mostly a romance reviewer but this one grabbed my attention.

One minute I'm like it has to be the president behind everything but Mr. Davis throws in an obstacle that side tracks you and leave you in surprise. All in all for being my ...more
Interesting political cover-up novel. Frustrating to think things like this are possible, though I hope they don't really happen. I found myself continually frustrated with the events of the novel, as the main character was, which after a point was kind of detracting. It was a book I was always excited to continue to read to see how things were going to proceed.

Good book. Fast paced. The author knows his stuff about military procedures. Reminded me of Baldacci. It seemed to wrap up too quickly though. I wish it was longer.

It's a good book, but not spellbinding. The characters are well presented and the storyline is good. But it just lacks the oomph factor.

This was his second book and he did not dissapoint me with it. I like the AF angle to his books. This was a good read.
