Lieutenant Colonel Tecumseh "Dog" Bastien is the leader of Dreamland. The Dreamland group respects and admires Dog's leadership. There are those above his rank that think the leadership of such a powerful group should be commanded by a higher ranking officer but for now, Dog is it with all the pressures that come with that leadership. The love life of this group is one that evolves as the story progresses as members do have some loved ones in the same group they are in making military objectives extremely hard at times. But things flow quite well under Dog's command.
Twenty-five nuclear warheads have been lost during warring factions involving India, Pakistan, and China, with the United States caught in the middle, supposedly friendly with all three nations. On paper that works out well, however, in practice it becomes a game of tag and war to get those warheads before anyone else can. Dreamland was assigned to find the warheads before a nuclear war got started. Using all the modern technology possible, the Dreamland team starts their search, a search that becomes a very dangerous "game" for all involved. Airplanes, ships, drones, and land troops all search the areas that the latest technology has given them as the most likely scattered locations where these warheads might be found.Read more ›
Some nice touches about inter-service rivalries and the antics of power-grabbing senior officers. But overall the story was a bit bit too fragmented and disjointed (others have complained of this in his books too). It got hard to remember who was where and what they were doing. Some plot aspects were rather obvious - we just *knew* that the couple marooned on the tiny rock island would get rescued somehow...
Why are the place-time stamps all set in the 1990's? Was the book written then and only now published? don't think so. Is he suggesting an alternate universe? I would have expected to see 2015 or some such year. Just an oddity.
If you are new to Dale Brown and like military techno-trhillers, by all means get this and any of the others from this series. They don't disappoint in and of themselves. Just it my opinion it got a bit monotonous. I've never read THIS book, but I give the series a strong 3-4 stars.
