It is my understanding that this is the second novel by Chris Stewart who at the time of publication was a major in the U.S. Air Force. WoW! One of the descriptions of this action-packed, page-turner describes it as a page-flipping techno-thriller. WoW! - Yes!!

It took me about 45 pages to get into this book because of all the technical fighter pilot detail the author uses. The story is interesting and engaging...but I am one who likes the EOTWAWKI genre where the possible scenarios of biological terrorism, nuclear war, etc are played out. I would've given the book a higher rating except that I was extremely displeased with the author for allowing one of my favorite characters to be brutally killed, and I was very disappointed in the lame ending of the ...more

This gets five stars, not because it is life-altering, profound, or exquisitely fine prose. I give it the first four stars because it is exactly what it purports to be: a gripping technothriller with a great story line, authentic detail, intense action, and a satisfying conclusion. Absence of crude language and unsavoury "adult" behavior earns it the fifth star. I could recommend this to my teenage daughter (if she had interest in F-15s, B-1s, bio-weapons and recent Middle-eastern conflicts).

I really like this Author! If you like high action, military, terrorist, thriller type books then you would like this! I like that he writes clean, as far as no language or immorality. There is violence, because of the subject matter. Caution: there is one very graphically violent scene at the end of the book involving torture and death- you might want to skip over that-pretty disturbing, however realistic it might be.

I enjoyed this book--maybe in large part because it is rare to find a book involving a lot of military action that isn't laced with swearing. So, if you want an exciting book and don't want to wade through lots of cussing, this one fits the bill. Well-written. I don't know how plausible the plot is, but it kept me entertained.

This was a great book by an author I've yet to read. His writing is concise and crisp and knows how to develop a great, fast moving plot. I will definitely be reading more of his novels.

I guy I know lent me this book--I need to read the other one--and he knew the author. Evidently it is his friends son. I can't remember much but it was good.
