I read the book from beginning to end and I read the reviews. I noted that Air Force personnel took issue with the story. I spent 23 years in the Air Force and I too found some inaccuracies, but I also know it is a work of fiction. An author takes license with the material he or she has to work with. The book was an enjoyable read. If you want accuracy read non-fiction. If you want irreverent humor and suspense read this book.
Home-grown, fundamentalist driven terrorists take over a nuclear facility and an unlikely hero tries to save the day. This military/action adventure is quite different from Mr. Levine's legal thrillers. As much as I enjoy two of his other series, Jake Lassiter and Solomon and Lord, this book was just too over the top and silly for me. This book was offered as a kindle freebie and though it wasn't for me, I thank the author for his generosity.
