Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The fourth book in Bond and DeFelice’s Red Dragon Rising series throws the cast right into the action from the get-go. A few years into the future, China has attacked Vietnam. While the rest of the world watches and waits, an army major inside the war-torn country leads an attack against the Chinese. An American ship off the coast of China waits for a missile strike, and the president of the U.S. contemplates WWIII. Global warming plays a key role in how leaders act and the lengths they will go to keep the status quo. Military fiction fans will follow this shockingly believable scenario eagerly, though those unfamiliar with the series should be warned to start at the beginning; the plot will be largely incomprehensible otherwise. Imagine the four books together as being the longest single Tom Clancy novel ever written, and you’ll get the idea. --Jeff Ayers

Review

“The techno-thriller has a new ace and his name is Larry Bond.”
—Tom Clancy, bestselling author of Without Remorse

“A superb storyteller… Larry Bond seems to know everything about warfare, from the grunt in the foxhole to the fighter pilots far above the Earth.”
The New York Times Book Review

--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

I couldn't stop reading till the last page, great story, a lot of suspens, it is the book you want to read it in one time.

On the whole, I have enjoyed each book in the series, and am saddened by the fact that I am now reading the last one.

In this last volume of the “Red Dragon Rising” series, the handful of Americans who know what’s really going on in Vietnam face some fateful choices.

The president faces impeachment over what some in Congress think is his desire to go to war with China and defend Vietnam; he knows he must but must do so covertly. Military liaision Zeus Murphy has narrowly escaped with his life after a harrowing mission to Hainan; his superior wants him out of Vietnam but meanwhile he won’t go without the Vietnamese woman he’s fallen in love with, now under arrest. Commander Dirk Silas of the USS McCampbell has been given the difficult job of shadowing Chinese warships in the South China Sea while simultaneously under orders to avoid; he must play cat and mouse as the Chinese harass Vietnamese and foreign shipping.

Meanwhile, scientist Josh MacDonald, an eyewitness to Chinese atrocities against Vietnamese villagers at the invasion’s outset in the first of the four-book series, is still being stalked by a determined assassin. Fleshing out the action are supporting characters like SEAL Ric Kerfer, Vietnamese Army commander General Minh Trung, and CIA paramilitary Roth Setco.

The big question, though, is: China has the overwhelming advantage in force and numbers. How long will it take to overrun Vietnam? How long do the Vietnamese have? And can anything save them?

This book continues as the others have – strong on the strategizing and weaponry, reasonable in the supply and depiction of action, so-so on the depiction of today’s Vietnam, weak on the characterization.

As with all of the other books by these authors, it was hard to put down. Read it in two sittings.

Since it had been several months since I read Shock of War, it took me a while to get back into the story and the characters. It took me until Chapt 10 to get all the main characters recalled. The whole story is fast paced, just like the rest of the series. Bond develops his characters by their actions and he keeps the reader guessing what comes next. By the time I got to Chap 30, I could not put the book down for want to see how the story unfolds. The endings of the characters did surprise me. I was not expecting the final scene with Josh, Mara, and Yo. Bond could have continued the story with LCdr Li taking command of a warship in armed conflict. Would have been interesting to see his take on women in command of combatants under fire. More details of burial at sea would have been appropriate. Bond does leave room for a successor tale. The author's note was appropriate but not really necessary. I did pick up on the change of names of the ships, but the Navy does swap ships and assignments/billets. All in all a good yarn that is keeping with modern events.

A captivating subject, well written and addressing issues that, in the future, might be in the realm of possibilities. I highly recommend the story line as a "can't put down" page turner. As a Vietnam Vet and China expat, it won't take much to connect the dots.
