I know...I read it out of order. I picked up the audiobook for my husband and me to listen to on road trips. I became so confused by the choppy editing that I had to get the book and read along to really know what was going on. But I tracked down copies of the others in the series, and my next Coonts read will be the original Deep Black.
It's an okay book. Three stars for decent character development. I could just envision a certain California senator as head of the NSA. :-) Overall, though, I h

Interesting story, but unlike his later books, this was at a very very boring pace.

This is a great vacation read. A moderately complex plot which unfolds like a movie with character and location shifts. There are no surprises in the story but it is still a compelling book to carry on reading till the end. No deep character development but who needs that with a Where in the World is Carmen Sandiago type plot developement, the settings make up for the lack of depth in the people. Would recommend this as a good companion to the other books in the series.

Very difficult for me to read.and to enjoy. Too much micromanagement from Ft Meade into Turkey terror activities.

Totally read this book out of order which is not like me, but I wanted to see if this was a good enough read to pick up the others. Enjoyed the book enough to keep me intrigued, but might find myself drifting toward the rest of my list of a million books to read first. Interesting plot that brought in plenty of concerns about war and politics, but I can't say that I was thrilled with any of the characters.

Moderately complex plot and characters.

Compared with others of the genre (eg, Brad Thor) a more balanced perspective on middle eastern tensions, as well as on diversity within Muslim communities.

another tale about the small cadre of special agents from Deep Black, the special operators of the National Security Agency...this time they try to stop an attack on America's energy infrastructure...OK

Audio Book. I think it was the abridged version and I always hate abridged versions. The story didn't seem too bad but the telling wasn't that good. I think it was the abridgement.

Decent thriller. Offers some insight into middle eastern operatives and all of the crazy stuff our government might be doing at any given time to fight terror...
