On the other hand, the plot has a fair number of holes, some big, some small. The prose might have benefitted from the services of a good editor. (Including the mechanics: the book features text in italics and underlined, numbered lists, and ship names written in all caps.) Fortunately, the spelling is consistenly good.
There are the usual technical howlers when it comes to computers and aircraft, and, as in many other thrillers, a lack of understanding of how governments work. The President of the USA has way too much free time and freedom of movement, for example. Some characters cross the line between cardboard and utterly unbelievable.
But overall the Kindle edition provides good entertainment and excellent value for money. (At $18 the paperback edition is much too expensive and would have got two stars only.)
(Scale: * - unreadable, couldn't finish. ** - bad or very bad, but readable. *** - honest solid work, value for money. **** - very good in its genre. ***** - timeless masterpiece.)

Using women as the butt of his jokes or as an analogy seem to be a natural part of his storytelling, from writing about someone who could change a subject “faster than a woman can pull up her pants,” (I was appalled by that sentence!), to writing that the White House has had, “more face-lifts than the Gabor sisters.” And even when he gives a woman a powerful job, like president of the U.S. he dilutes the power of her position by having that character make the claim that a mass transit strike in NYC would “ruin a girl’s day.” Or by having that same character say, “This better be important. I’m up to my earrings here.Read more ›
As this was a free book I am not out any $$$ but it was a so-so read and nothing to write home about.
It's all very farfetched when you step back from it, but it doesn't detract from the fact that it's a fun, get-lost-for-a-few-days read. Like a James Bond flick you know is all nonsense.
