Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Look forward to this author writing another book!

He has a truly in depth knowledge of the military and spook jargon/nomenclature almost to the detriment of the story in the 1st 3rd of the book.

This book is well written and draws the reader in so you can't put it down.

Super 1st outing by a new author..

He is obviously an experienced military/covert operations guy with a vast knowledge of the inner workings of the clandestine world.

He has a truly in depth knowledge of the military and spook jargon/nomenclature almost to the detriment of the story in the 1st 3rd of the book. However, if you like Clancy or Flynn, stick with him as the story is "right up to the minute" with today's headlines and builds to a thrilling finish.. Characters are fleshed out nicely and yes, he leaves room for a sequel.. Hope to see a bunch more from Mr. Howell.

This is the most accurate depiction of what really goes on and it's a work of Fiction! This book is well written and draws the reader in so you can't put it down. You have to know what happens next. Thank you Drew for writing a book that is so technically accurate that I could visualize everything as it happened. From Route White through Massoud Circle into the Embassy compound in Kabul. I've driven that route many times and it can suck at times. I'm looking forward to the next book. Thank you for writing a "real" account of how things really operate and the story behind the scenes, everyone should be lucky enough to read and learn from this book!

This was an impressive work...lots of exciting action, interesting characters, fascinating commentary on politics, history and modern military/government technology throughout, and funny pop culture references sprinkled in to boot. I have found a replacement for the dearly deceased Robert Ludlum, and can't wait for Howell's next book!

Not what I expected. Delightful. Good read. Love the twist of misdirection on top of corruption on top of greed. Well done. The underlying sentiment is well earned and the drama serves a nice irony. Who is Jay Gault? sublime.
