Book Description

Techno Thriller Action Puts Human Face to Ugly War

Updated and Reformatted 05/16/14.

Readers Review: "Continuing the story from Volume One, Mr. Greene maintains the fiction-reality connection vividly.So vivid is this connection that one can read events he has written that then nearly are mirrored on the next week's news. It is this aspect that makes the unfolding of the tale so frightening. It is the meshing of the events with the effects on the life of the Marine family that makes it so human. I eagerly await a Volume Three."

Another Review: "I was intrigued by this novel both because I enjoy reading military thrillers as a reader and also because I have written a similar thriller set in the Indian subcontinent called Line of Control- A Thriller on the Coming War in Asia. In short, this was a book that satisfied me both as a reader and as a fellow writer. It just so happened that I read this book on a day when Israeli diplomats were under attack in India and Georgia and Israel blamed Iran, bringing home just how real the tensions portrayed in this book are. A thriller like this that builds off current realities and headlines has to balance reality with making just the right fictional leaps to stretch the reader's imagination and Mr. Greene does that admirably. As a writer, I really enjoyed the way he wove together current headlines, strong military action, the political intrigue underpinning any such crisis with a believable cast of characters".

Tensions between America and Iran reach the boiling point in 2016 and result in America entering into its first declared war since World War Two. This novel while fiction documents the war as seen from the eyes of an American military family and its retired Marine Colonel father and young Marine 1st Lieutenant son.

Reference is made to fictitious characters such as Colonel Brad Rogers and to public figures like President of the United States Barack Obama. Quotations attributed to President Obama and any other public figures are entirely fiction. The novel blends imagined quotations from fictitious characters and public figures in an effort to add realism to a novel set in the near future.

The novel is number two in a series of action adventure novels that puts a human face to the horrors of war and explores the hardships experienced by military families.

1.0 out of 5 stars could not even finish it February 20, 2012

I got it for free I think, so I was not cheated. I read 40 or 50 pages and gave up. It consists almost entirely of dialogue, much of it just plain painful to read. No one talks this way.

It did have some good ideas as far as the plot line went, but the horrible style just turned me off. The style even extends to characters that basicly talk with themselves.

The strange conversations between Obama and Biden in the book had me wondering if the author is trying for sarcasm or just not very good.

My advice is not to waste your time on this. I have no idea what book the 5 star reviewers are reading.
