"Poyer packs story with both dense technical info and welcome local color. Unique Aisha merits a spinoff series."-Kirkus Reviews
""Plows fearlessly-though with hair-raising effect on occasion-through today's stormy international and social seas...the salvos of nautical expertise also lend flavor and authenticity...the author provides believable insights into Muslim thinking...Poyer's genius for description impresses on page after page. The vividness of his scene-setting grabs you."
"Lovers of procedural military fiction wait for David Poyer's next installment of the career of Dan Lenson."-Roanoke Times
