Ha! but the clock keeps circling around and midnight approaches and i have places to go, things to do tomorrow! But how does one simply put this book (like the two that preceded it) down? ONLY with difficulty. I have had the experience of staying up all night once before reading its predecessor, so I now know I simply must put the book aside for the night and start again tomorrow... ha. If it were only that easy... It's tempting to keep nibbling away chapter by chapter risking the sun coming up as I race through the chapters. But not this time, Mr. Happy! I'm going to bed (but keeping the kindle close by... just in case). So, when's book #4 coming out?
Make no mistake: Mr. Happy’s stories are always very good, well-written, contemporary and often filled with serious personal combat – lots of fatalities among the bad guys. However, the bad guys, more often than not, are paper-cut-out-stick-figures with tons more negatives than positives and prone to unrealistic stupidity. Thus, the good guys (i.e., the Friends from Damascus) are set up to succeed, but not without trauma, serious injury and miscalculation of their own. And the reader must suspend judgment only about a half dozen times.
One of the more entertaining features of this story takes place in Zurich, where the anti-terrorist group actually breaks into a Swiss bank to get information about the bad guys, primarily a soured Indian bio-scientist who has plans to develop an aerosolized version of anthrax, as revenge for the killing of his family in Mumbai by Pakistani terrorists. The scientist is bankrolled by a manipulative Indian woman who is the brains behind the entire anthrax operation. The Zurich bank “heist” may be the first you read wherein no money, gems or art is stolen: just information. Ah, the modernity of it all!!!

This one starts with Katya Petrova. Petrova is an ex Russian agent. An agent who's done time in prison when the Govt she faithfully served threw her under the bus.
She now fights on the streets and in alleys as a MMA fighter. She routinely gets beaten up but dish's out just as much as she takes. She's scarred, bitter and has no faith in anyone or anything.
She's contacted by Brett Morgan and asked if she wants to join the Friends from Damascas. Brett has done this because he and the major feel the team needs a second sniper. Another sniper to assist the team sniper, Joe Proffitt.
The Friends of Damascas are a team who take out jihadists, gun dealers and anyone else the team designates as a bad guy.
They answer to no one and are controlled by no one. Brett Morgan is their leader and he plans the missions. The team is on the hit list of every official agency out there.
Profitt is a quiet guy who survived a horrific childhood. A childhood that taught him how to fight, hunt and survive. He never says much but is loyal to Brett Morgan his only true friend. He's one hell of a sniper and a man who will do whatever it takes to protect his team.
Proffitt is an ex marine. A marine who was court marshalled for taking out bad guys in Iraq.
To Proffit it was very simple. The bad guys were killing marines. He killed them. The ROE didn't mean squat to him but did to the military court system.
Brett Morgan, a US Navy SEAL and the holder of two silver stars, was the only one to step up and speak for Proffitt. A Proffitt he'd met and befriended.
Proffitt served one year instead of twenty and became the sniper for the Friends from Damascas.Read more ›
My parents were dead set against my joining the Army. I have a lot in common with some of Clifford Happy's characters other than being in a different War @ a different time.
My advice: Don't be afraid to try a new author now & then. Some, like Clifford Happy, are excellent. I'm certainly glad I tried this "new to me" author. Updated Oct 2013 -- Just finished his 7th book. (Excellent Navy submarine story. See review under "End Game".)
