Top Customer Reviews
However, perhaps most interesting is the outstanding job the author does of describing the terrain inside Iran. Not sure if Bond just did a great job in research, or if he actually was foolish enough to visit the country in person and risk his rear end. (It seems to me he may very well have been there).
To summarize, I liked this book a lot, and can only hope his books will be this good from now on.
Larry Bond takes this idea and crafts and intriguing tale. Opal, an Iranian spy has the answer, and to obtain the proof needed to prevent Israel's strike on Iran, Opal must be rescued. But of course, this proves to be easier said than done.
I am an author who writes stories with plots containing nuclear and thermonuclear weapons. Subjects I am qualified to write about since I have a degree in nuclear engineering and served my active duty time as an EOD and NET officer assigned to the Defense Atomic Support Agency in Albuquerque, NM. I cringe when reading stories with nuclear weapons written by authors who do not understand what they are writing about. Not so with Larry Bond. I have read and reviewed Larry Bond's First Team: Fires of War and Cold Choices and found both to be well written and factual. So too is EXIT PLAN. In the prologue, Bond accurately describes a centrifuge array, uranium hexafluoride, the Natanz underground chambers, and the accident. Well done Larry.
The story begins after the accident. Iranian General Moradi is on his way to Natanz. Moradi had been selected by the supreme leader of Iran to head the nuclear weapons program. When he arrives, he realizes he has a problem. Like Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, everyone is watched, and Moradi is watched by Major Rahim.
Word reaches Washington from Opal that the centrifuges have failed. Satellite photos show that Iran is preparing a shaft for an underground nuclear test. Both can't be correct, so which is true. Opal must be extracted with the files proving the test is a bluff. The question that challenges the intelligence communities is, why would Iran fake a nuclear test?
The Memphis, an converted boomer with a SEAL team and mini sub is diverted to extract Opal. When the team launches, Mr. Murphy joins the team and things go South. The remainder of the story is how the Iranians hunt the team and U.S. efforts to extract them and prevent Israel from attacking Iran.
Lots of action, well plotted and written action scenes, and overall EXIT PLAN is a great read.
I gave the book 4.5 stars because there is too much nomenclature. Also, a list of characters would help. Some readers, me included, read a book is as time permits, thus a character index helps.
As an ex-submarine sailor I was impressed with his detail and knowledge. I hope the Iranians
do not read it because it may make them smarter and more dangerous. His knowledge about the
Iranian military was also amazing as was his knowledge about the Iranian southern sea coast. His
story also tells us about the SEALS, their training, courage and tenacity. We are indeed lucky
to have them on our side and authors like Larry Bond to tell their tale.
If you like military thrillers, you'll like this.
I wish he would write more books like Cauldron, but given that he is going to write less big picture--more individually focused books, I'm still glad that he is putting effort into original novels.
I'll buy everything he writes himself as long as they stay as good as this series
