It's just not my cup of tea. I only bought the book so I could meet Oliver North at a signing in Oak Brook. I had reasons, but reading his book wasn't one of them. I just figured I'd read it since I had it. I'm not generally a fan of thrillers, at least not in book form. They don't work for me. I don't mind them in movie form. They can be fun sometimes. But it takes a great writer to get me into such a book. Ian Fleming could do it, but very few others can. North (and his ghost writer) couldn't.

Recommend reading Mission Compromised by Oliver North prior to this book as the series is turning into a nice, realistic, adventure. Enjoyable novel. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
Kimberlee Bergeron
Second book of Oliver north trilogy. Great read!
Exciting read.
Vicki May
Really enjoyed the first of this series, took a while but the second was just as good.
I think that I like this one better than Mission Compromised. In this one, you find out what happened to minor characters from the previous book, which was nice, since there were some minor characters that I would have hated to see killed. It was also a sad book. But even with sad parts, I still liked it.
Greg Snyder
Liked this book a lot. A lot of this book could really happen.

When his cover is blown in Israel, Major Peter J. Newman's family is threatened. In Jerusalem his wife is kidnapped. Newman has to make a decision whether to continue his mission or rescue his wife. Israel prepares to launch a preemptive missile attack against Islamic terrorists holding nuclear weapons.
Greg Snyder
Very much enjoyed the book. It may be fiction but a whole lot of what is written could happen.
Paul Chandler
A very good book. It is great to read a great thriller/espionage book with a Christian base and not all the swearing and sex and other stuff. Mr. North wrote a great three book series, "Mission Compromised", "Jericho Sanction", and "The Assassins" and I enjoyed reading them all.
Bill Donhiser
This is the third Oliver North book i have read and I have enjoyed every one. Nuclear weapons a kidnapping and betrayal round out the plot of this novel set in the Middle East. I look forward to more from Ollie in the future.
Blaise Nicoletti
This is the second book in a trilogy of a story line and just keeps rollin like the first. WOW!! So very enjoyable to read. Have put the 3rd on hold because I have graduate studies to attend to.
We continue to follow Lt. Col. Peter Newman's struggle to keep peace in
the Middle East. Looks like Israel is the intended target of nuclear
weapons this time.
Great book, I received a signed hardcover version of this book a few years ago and just finished rereading it. It's still just as good as I remembered it.

This book is really long and I was at the edge of my seat the whole time!! It has a military theme, so it is very interesting.
Good quick read! I was not expecting it to be a page-turner, but it was. Reminded me of a Vince Flynn novel.
Cindy Barnett
I've loved all Oliver North 's books & he says they are real. I believed him in the Iran-Contra hearings and I do now.
I love the main characters. Weird when North writes himself as a character in the book.

A real page-turner. Doesn't get bogged down in boring details.
Nicolas Anderson
Didn't realize that this book connected to Mission Compromised!
Dan Rowling
