Great action sequences! The political outcomes of a plot to temporarily hike oil prices turning into a war in Southeast Asia as well as the Middle East is delivered in a very believable fashion.

Editing can use a little work. Example, the author did not know the size of an M-60 shell and quoted them as being four inches (they actually shoot the NATO version of the Springfield .30-06 which is just a longer 7.62). There is mention of Mesquite, TX being west of Dallas (wrong, it's east). There were some minor spelling errors. And at one point Navy guards were mentioned, which is odd, because Marines make up the security forces for the Navy.

It's a fun read and would make a great latenight shoot'em up movie, but doesn't quite meet the Tom Clancy quality standards.
