As another reviewer put it, Woods sold out to the company, writing two books a year, none of which are a half way decent read. So I reckon you guys who read a lot will see through this one quickly. It was just bad and barely readable.
Enough said, don't have time to pan this book much. If you read ...more
My full spoiler free review is on my blog
Thank you for reading!
It did seem to pack a hell of a lot of one off events into a very short amount of time. I know all novels have to do it to an extent, but it did stretch belief the amount of 'one off' events that occur throughout the book.

My compliments to Stuart Woods. He was recommended tome by a fellow reader and I'm glad I picked the novel up to read. I think I might turn out to be a fan. Especially so if he can weave a complex plot in the next novel as he did in this one.
Gotta say, it's a wonderful feeling when you discover an author who writes this well.
If you haven't read this book go and get a copy however you can, because you wont be disappointed! Great read and ...more

I have read many of Woods books. Typically I like his stock character books. But this is one I have pulled off the shelf a few times and enjoy it more than once.

Not a classic but a favorite.
