By Jeff Edwards VINE VOICE on March 7, 2011
Format: Paperback
When I finished Mr. Edwards first book ('Torpedo') I felt that I had read literally the BEST, most realistic techno-thriller of the previous decade. I've read quite a few books since then, and I maintain that my initial opinion was right on. Nobody can really write with the sense of immediacy and urgency like someone who has literally 'been there, done that'. 'Torpedo' was and still is one of my all-time favorite military thrillers. In a word: the book is simply Brilliant.

I have waited--sometimes patiently--most often impatiently--for Mr. Edwards follow-up. I KNEW immediately that the book had a LOT to live up to...and sometimes that either can work for you or against. In this case, I was worried that with his first novel being SO good, trying to live up to or making the attempt to out DO it seemed difficult at best...at least it seemed so to me. I am thrilled to say that 'The Seventh Angel' lived up to ALL of my expectations and exceeded them from beginning to end.

The prologue itself was a nail-biter--what a great way to start this story off...and it only got better. Some of the subject matter in the book isn't easy to deal with. Face it: its easier knowing that despite the threat of hostility during the Cold War, the Soviet Union had MUCH better control over its own stockpile of nuclear weapons and weapons-grade material than it has since its collapse in the early 90's. The Cold, hard truth of the matter is chilling to say the least: There is SO MUCH of this material and weapons either not being properly cared for and watched over or even accounted FOR that it ought to give us ALL nightmares for years to come. WHO is keeping track of it all--and--keep in mind, there is a LOT to keep track of. What could possibly go wrong?

First, I enjoyed this book. A lot. I also enjoyed the first one, Sea of Shadows though one needn't have read the first book; they are pretty standalone. The author has a clean and direct style that makes it an easy read. I had a very high pages/minute rate which allowed me to really stay wrapped up in the story. The pacing is also fast as each scene/chapter is rarely more than a handful of pages. Now, these would not necessarily be good things, but for this book and its subject matter and being a military-techno-thriller, it is perfect.

In the interest of full disclosure, I, like the author, am a former technician in the US Navy. I explained to a friend that this book really scratched itches I didn't know I had and was every bit the guilty pleasure that a bodice-ripper can be to others.

The action is intense, the characters are well-drawn and the stakes are high but not implausibly so. That last part can get a little sketchy. The only real complaint I could offer is that some of the situations are quite contrived. I will explain briefly in the least spoilery way I can: In this book, as in the first one mentioned earlier, situations conspire to make one Captain and his amazing Destroyer to save the day. Great storytelling no doubt, and I loved every minute of it. However, where I found a part of my brain nagging me was just at how unlikely and forced it was. The author clearly loves and knows US destroyers but I believe the capabilities of our hero's ship is greatly exaggerated and that the story would have been better served--and more believable/realistic--had a submarine been used instead. It is clear the author knew that as well as he created a way to prevent any submarine from being sent in, leaving it to our hero-captain and his stealthy destroyer to come to the rescue.

I read this on my Kindle and had no issues with formatting, etc.

I will be purchasing the author's next work when available.

I just finished reading the book and I have to say it is GOOD.

As a dyed-in-the-wool Milporn Geek, this book fell right in line with my expectations. I was drawn through the book as opposed to being pushed.. my way of putting the fact I didn't want to put it down. Work and life in general saw that I had to, occasionally, but I'd fight my way back to it - ASAP.

Mr. Edwards did a great job of drawing the scenes in my minds-eye and it was all very vivid and UNDERSTANDABLE. I enjoy the technology immensely and would have enjoyed a little more techno-in-my thriller but overall it was very well handled.

GOOD JOB, Mr. Edwards!

May I call you Jeff now?

;-)

This was an excellent novel. One of the first I've read to put the action on the deck of a modern destroyer. Great read with one exception. The character Ann, who is a couple computer and robotics expert is so outrageously anti military, and is just so downright absolutely unlikable, I was steadily rooting for her to be killed off. She is so unpleasant, and condescending to the naval personnel, and has no desire in anyway to compromise, I couldn't find a single redeeming quality to her. I actually found myself longing to speed passed any section with her. Though she is a major character, she doesn't sufficiently detract from the quality of the story to significantly degrade its enjoyment.
Only request would be for authors, or Amazon, to please start labeling books in a series, and provide their chronological order number. This is clearly part of a series, but can be read by itself. I plan to go back and read the proceeding books now.
Thanks again for an enjoyable series based on modern Tin Cans! This retired Tin Can sailor thanks you!
