Set in 2014, Bond and DeFelice's second thriller about a looming conflict with China more than fulfills the promise of the first in the series, Shadows of War. China, desperate for food, has invaded Vietnam, where environmental scientist Josh MacArthur witnessed the Chinese attack and a subsequent massacre. CIA officer Mara Duncan and a team of SEALs are smuggling Josh out of Vietnam so he can return to America and tell his story to President George Greene, who's trying to persuade Congress to stand up to the Chinese. Meanwhile in Hanoi, Maj. Zeus Murphy, at Greene's behest, is doing what he can to prevent the Chinese from rolling through and defeating Vietnam. Wire-taut suspense, credible characters, and an original premise make this one of the better recent entries in the military action subgenre. While the book works as a stand-alone, readers should begin with Shadows of War. (Nov.) (c)

The latest in Bond and DeFelice’s Red Dragon Rising series (following Shadows of War, 2009) continues to up the pace while maintaining substantive characters who aren’t overshadowed by the warfare. Government agent Mara Duncan rescued a scientist in the first book, and now she needs to get him out of Hanoi so he can testify in front of the United Nations. The majority of the world doesn’t know that a war is being waged, but that will change with the scientist’s speech. The Chinese government knows the man is still alive, and they don’t want their operations discovered, so they send a ruthless assassin to make sure the scientist doesn’t get out of Vietnam in one piece. Can Duncan keep him alive while a world war continues to escalate? This fine follow-up doesn’t suffer from being second in a series. Reading from the beginning might be ideal, but it’s not necessary to enjoy the story. --Jeff Ayers --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Editorial Reviews
The Edge of War from what I've read, the other 3 books is pretty dry until the last third of the book. Read morePublished 4 months ago by John
A lot of words, little story. The plot was weak and fractured, and what little story there was lacked cohesion. Skip this book and try another.Published 5 months ago by Michael L. Crofts
