"Snappy dialogue and intricate plot twists keeps the story moving, and his timely, though familiar, theme of government corruption, negligence and political correctness involving the war on terror hits home. Fans of Tom Clancy's meticulous page-turners will appreciate the book's sublime detail and cracking wit." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Expendable Assets is an action packed, quick-paced novel, that centers around those individuals fighting in the trenches of modern warfare, both domestically and abroad." -- US Review of Books
"With an action-packed plot that Tom Clancy readers will love, the book goes after power-hungry politicians, government corruption and bureaucracy, the biased media, and a co-opted legal system as it exposes the seedy backside of the war business." -- Corporate Counsel
