The authors trade points of view through the story which reminds me of Rick Riordan in the way it is handled. "David" and "Christine". Amazing it is set in Boston and comes out the week after the Marathon Bombing.
The "gear queers" will like David's commentary about weapons and techniques...
1. Fast read. And the Colonel obviously has been there, done that, has the scars and bars. But ...
2. It was a difficult read because of the female counterpoint. Grinding my teeth over her stupid, sophomoric attitudes by the first 1/4 of the book. Actively wanted to rip her pages out of my copy the further into her juvenile, moronic stupidity the book forced me to endure. Rarely have I been so aggravated by a character.
3. Plausible scenario ... the massive 'terrorist incident' as cover for the actual event. And the inability of our federal agencies to recognize and deal with it hits all the right notes. I'd hazard a guess Colonel Hunt is letting more than a little steam off in this novel.
God Bless our men who, in the dark and unknown, do those things which let us enjoy the lives we have.

Colonel David Hunt and Christine Hunsinger have penned a thrilling TERROR RED, a book that takes readers to the edge of excitement, plunging its characters into a series of attacks that rock the city of Boston and might very well spell the doom of a certain fictional President.
(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)
It's December 26th, and all retired colonel David Gibson wants to do is get his mother on a plane so that he can get back to his business. Standing at the airport waiting for her plane to depart, he catches a news alert on a nearby television that exposes a shocking development: his mother's plane is parked on the runway, where it's been taken over by terrorists!Read more ›
I found the story rather mindless and the back and forth chapter switching between David and Christina's viewpoint irritating.
The book had a few good points. The story moved quickly and there was a singular plot throughout the book. There was not much filler, just a very small hint of romance, and the good guys won. However, that was about it for redeeming qualities.
This book read more like a comic book, with the hero and newly anointed heroine overcoming all odds, escaping from every bad situation, killing the enemy with pinpoint marksmanship every time and surviving explosion after explosion while the casualties mount all around them. Some of this might have been believable I guess for David, but Christina???? She's a political consultant !!!!!
She displays some of the wisecracking attitude of Stephanie Plum,(even uttering "BITE ME" a few times) and her persona gets quite boring after awhile. And by the way she somehow acquires the shooting skill of a SWAT Team member in one evening, racking up a few terrorists of her own.
An even bigger issue is at the end of the book the authors keep the door open for a sequel. Oh boy!!
If you are looking for a fast (lots of blank spaces on lots of pages) brainless, throw all logic aside, shoot em up terrorist read by all means step right up and purchase this book. It will fill that need very well.
Unfortunately, I found that out the hard way. For me, one of the worst books I've read in a long,long time.
