Editorial Reviews

Review

"... It's a quick moving book that held my interest from prologue to epilogue. It strikes me as an alternate future much like the alternate histories that have been written. The style is like the writings of Dick Marcinko (who is acknowledged as an influence)..." ~Doug DePew 'Military Memoirs' - Amazon Reviewer - July 29, 2011


"...It takes a speculative look at today's politics and puts an extreme spin on them that can be rather comical, but also very scary. In some ways it is a reminder that we can never be lulled into a false sense of security about our freedoms, ..." ~Mistress of The Dark Path "Suzie" - Amazon Reviewer - August 12, 2011


"...This book is a great mixture of action and details. It is more geared toward the military minded but it was a great read."  ~TheGinreading - Amazon Reviewer - January 29, 2012

"...I like fast paced! It was EXCITING-EXCITING AND THEN IT GOT EXCITING!!! I JUST LOVED IT SO MUCH!!! Lots of action and fun for the heart!!!" ~Vonda Norwood - Amazon Reviewer - March 31, 2012

"...The reader is whisked from a clandestine covert mission in Iran to the inhospitable ranges of southwest Texas. In between you are introduced to a highly professional group of men and women who take protecting their country...very seriously no matter what office they hold..." ~Jeff Dawson 'Direktor59' - Amazon Reviewer - April 26, 2012

Three and-a-half stars

Today, a lot of books are being written as suspense thrillers surrounding our current President and the terrible path the country is being propelled with a potential chance of "no return." Some are good while others are best forgotten. This one falls right in the middle of the road.

The reader is whisked from a clandestine covert mission in Iran to the inhospitable ranges of southwest Texas. In between you are introduced to a highly professional group of men and women who take protecting their country (from enemies:foreign and domestic) very seriously no matter what office they hold. Yep, that includes the president.

The parts I found most intriguing were the well thought out plots and how they (in the end) tie together nicely. Imagine being part of an elite group carrying out the assigned mission and have it successfully sabotaged (this was a very good twist) while carrying it out and then all your contacts are recalled to Washington or fired while being in enemy territory. How's that for a starter? The group makes it back to friendly lines only to find themselves in the middle of thwarting an invasion by extremely hostile forces. The group consisting of Mac, Deb, JD, TK, Deano and a few other characters (along with a pick-up from the US Embassy) make their way back to Texas to work for their former (burned) boss of the CIA, Bill Winchester.

At times the story line is a bit hard to fathom with so much going on in a very short time frame. The characters never get a chance to breath and regroup. It does distract from the story a bit when it comes to believability.

This is the first government thriller by Lynn Hallbrooks and David McCoy. Not too bad for a first attempt. The plot is well thought out.

I read all then-available reviews of this book before purchasing it, and thanks to the different opinions expressed did not know what to expect. Briefly, I really enjoyed this book.

The story, while long in narration, is excellent and the action continuous. Moreover, this book clearly reflects real passion on the part of the authors

A comment on style.
The presence of the narrator’s point of view is often more obtrusive than I prefer. For example, instead of
He hands the box to Deb since he figures it might be delicate equipment that she would know best how to store. He turns to the team, ” (Location 298 of 11424)
I would prefer that the character himself reveal his thoughts through actions and conversation.
He hands the box to Deb.
“Here, this could be delicate equipment, you know best how to store it.”
He turns back to the others.
In my opinion handling more text through actions and conversations can result in a considerably shorter text. But hey! It’s a free country (and will stay that way if the authors have any thing to say about it.)
The authors can choose whatever style they prefer as long as the story is a good one.

A comment on plot and story.
The authors make their style work. The fictional story line is sufficiently “true to life” and relatable to potentially real events, with only some exaggerated characters. This book has action, plenty of it, plus a first rate plot that kept me reading all the way through.

A comment on information content.
This book is full of information on military and security matters. I'm biased here. I like books that inform, and this one presents military and security tactics (and weaponry) in realistic detail, lots of detail.

A group of ex-military CIA agents are called upon for an undercover sensitive mission in Iraq. Betrayed by their country due to a corrupt government they find themselves on the run. This book is a great mixture of action and details. It is more geared toward the military minded but it was a great read.

You need only to read an interview about these two authors to know what a spectacular creative match they make. In other hands a CIA special ops teams might amount to only a few weapons and a tough line or two, but with David McKoy and Lynn Hallbrooks the Wrecking Crew is truly a full cast of characters with real lives and real relationships. In fact, you'll get at least two team romances coming right out of the gate. David's in depth knowledge of all things military shines through as well.

The Wrecking Crew is actually sent to the border of Iran for a secret mission, but when the President falls ill and our country changes political hands, all hell breaks loose. As the crew covertly reenters the country and makes their way back to Texas, it quickly becomes obvious that law is changing and a new order is about to break loose. Suddenly it's the government versus patriots, and you can be certain Mac, Deb, JT, TK and the others are on the side of the people, and not with the men in suits who have twisted up everything that freedom stands for.

With the help of recently expelled CIA agent Bill Winchester, the Wrecking Crew begins their first mission on home soil. It isn't long before they all realize that corruption has seeped up through the very tree of liberty and now rests solidly within the White House. This new battle is for keeps and, be they allies or foes, the sides quickly begin to form. Left with no choice, the Wrecking Crew leads the fight for clean government and the powers-that-be begin to quake....

If you've ever questioned the US system and its representatives, the themes within these pages are certain to stir your soul. The fact that you'll grow to love the characters is just icing on the cake. Be sure to read this military adventure...but don't be surprised if it encourages you to interpret tomorrow's news in an entirely different way.
