I have been a fan of Ulsterman and Mac Walker series for quite some time and his latest entry--Mac Walker 40,000 feet--is the best yet. A plane is hijacked by fanatics to use as a biological bomb on the Vatican. Only Mac and Stasia (his Vatican partner) can stop this horrendous crime.

What follows is a taut, suspenseful drama played out in the seats and aisles of a Boeing 767 that will keep any fan of the suspense/thriller genre on the edge of their seats. I picked the book up on my Kindle and couldn't put it down until the last page was gone. You will be carried away for 2 hours ours by the action, suspense, drama, double-dealing, heroism and ultimate success of our hero's. When I was done reading my heart was racing and I wanted there to be more. I am sure Mr. Ulsterman will oblige.

Pretty good book, good storyline & characters. But I only gave it 3 stars due to the silly number of typos, word misuse, and misspellings. For instance, the word "hangar" as in an airplane storage building, is used frequently, but missspelled "hanger" through the first 3/4 of the book; then it's mysteriously corrected in the last part of the book! Weird to say the least.
Also I was ready to scream if I had to hear the lead character described as "the former Navy SEAL" one more time!! Holy cow! Do we need to be reminded of that on every 2nd or third page throughout the book? Even in the final pages, the author thinks his readers are morons & feels the need to repeat it! That was even more irritating than the sloppy grammar, misspellings, and missing words.
This author needs an editor/proofreader, or at least a new one.

But it's a worthwhile read and I enjoyed it, well sort of.

I really enjoy this character and have read all the other books. I was looking forward to more stories and this one did not disappoint. Mac Walker is the kind of guy you would want around in a crisis. I really like the way current events are woven into the stories. I recommend this book .

Written to sell, a formula type book that is somewhat simplistic where characters are not fully formed. Entertains, and the type you would buy in an airport to read between flight from D.C. to Vegas to pass the time. I would not read the series.

In my mind, Mac Walker would look like a 38 yr old Chuck Norris. This book reminded me so much of the Norris action flicks of the 80's. Not saying that in a bad light, as I loved Chuck's movies like Missing In Action and Invasion U.S.A.

Lots of action, but in a odd way, I wanted more. Maybe due to the length of the story, I felt the author shaved off the big climactic fight at the end. All the build up in the story and it ended pretty quiet. In the movies, Mac Walker would have been fighting on the plane just over the Vatican trying to save the day. See Harrison Ford in Air Force One. I'd give this story 3.5 stars if I could, so I'll bump it up to 4 stars because as I mentioned above, it reminded me of the 80's action movies.

And yes, I plan to read more of Mac Walker. I recently downloaded 3 free short stories and I have MAC WALKER'S BETRAYAL: An American hero military suspense political thriller on my Kindle already. After I read all those, I will use the Kindle Unlimited to catch up on all the other 3 Mac Walker stories in MAC WALKER: The Collection: A Military Suspense Thriller. This collection has all 8 Mac Walker stories (short and long). I figure to have read 5 stories before I borrow this one. So sit back and enjoy Mac Walker kick some butt.

Another great chapter to the Mac Walker story. This author is awesome at telling a good story.
Also loved the Stasia character. She kicks serious butt!!!

Can't wait for the next DW Ulsterman story. My new favorite author.

Can't imagine how this book got any 5-star reviews. Takes place on a 767 aircraft that somehow has a center aisle and two rows of 3 seats when the actual plane has a 2-3-2 seat configuration. He was describing a 757, not a 767. Then a hijacker made an announcement up front without the PA systems that could be clearly heard 41 rows back--I don't think so. The only knife in the galley was a butter knife and there were bags of peanuts--since when? And then the hijackers get off the plane and leave their loaded AK-47s behind where any passenger can pick them up. Absurd! Oh, and then there was the "boat that beached itself" (smart boat, eh?) And the hero Mac Walker who is described on every page from start to finish as "the former Navy SEAL." How about "their" for "there?" Sloppy writing, sloppy editing.

Typical poorly written juvenile testosterone-driven fiction. It reminds me of a comic book. I personally often enjoy testosterone-driven fiction. This book is badly written and inadequately edited, though.

An example: ".....United Nations into which the foolish behemoths like the United States poured billions of dollars into."

I'm maybe a quarter of the way through and I'm not sure I'll go any further. I like Mac. He deserves a better author, though.
