Why do I keep reading these? This one was particularly bad, unfortunately. Thank god it only took a few hours to read...

First off, I'm sick to death of all the oil company conspiracy that people talk about in this country. And this whole book was about sabotaging the Alaska pipeline so some dummy could buy it out and make a billion dollars. Whatever. Secondly,it just wasn't a mission I think APO would normally concern themselves with, so I could never get into the story. And of course, the author tried too hard to make the characters talk like spies. They were always using their damn code names--something they rarely did on the show--and they were super serious about everything. None of their personalities shone through; they could have been any run-of-the-mill adventurers on a mission. Disappointing. My final point about how stupid this book is: Sydney hurled a bunch of throwing stars at the wing of an airplane as it was zooming down the runway trying to take off, and of course that made the plane crash as soon as it got in the air. Nadia shot at the plane with a machine gun which did nothing, but Sydney's throwing stars took it out??? Sure.
