Back in February, I was invited to read a Gray Man novel by Mark Greaney, Mission Critical. I loved it. It was edgy and full of action. I read it as a standalone, but it is part of a series. This book, Red Metal, is a true standalone.

This book is a massive read but loaded with so much action you don’t really realize how fast the pages fly. These men brought a masterful story together that just begs to be read by anyone interested in military novels, action, thrills and suspense, and realistic stories that are so plausible, it’s damn near scary.
I was reading some additional information regarding how these two authors met and how the idea for the story came together. The incredible knowled ...more
Russia is ready to take back what it lost but there may be a high price to pay!

What a great book - I'm no stranger to espionage & assassin thrillers, but this was my first military thriller and it did not disappoint! There is a plethora of military lingo & terminology; I found I was constantly looking up tanks, airplanes, helicopters, personnel carriers, submarines & a wide variety of other vehicle and weapon models to truly get a feel for the large scale battles that take place in this story.
Taking place on a global scale, you'll find the characters constantly absorbed in...more

This book is Army/Marine Corps heavy with support from the Navy and Air Force.
9.5/10. I could go on but I don’t want to ruin the plot. If you like Tom Clancy this is a must read book.

The incredible characters will have your heart racing while all of the different threads combine into one master work remiscent of Tom Clancy's epic Red Storm Rising. Truth be told - I ...more
