"Syren's Song is an entertaining read for those who enjoy geopolitical thrillers. The novel reinforces an important point: our adversaries exploit their own collaborative networks of commercial interests - both legal and illegal - to meet their objectives."―Information Dissemination.net
“Having worked at the Office of Naval Intelligence and served overseas with Expeditionary Strike Group FIVE, Claude Berube knows today’s threat environment like no other thriller writer. He brings a solid grasp of his subject matter and a sharp eye for detail to Syren’s Song, the second in his series of Conner Stark novels. Sea battles, jungle ambushes, and struggles in the corridors of power punctuate a gripping tale replete with double crosses, terrorism, and an international conspiracy. Move over, Jack Ryan, Syren’s Song is a tremendously enjoyable thriller and a riveting novel of naval adventure.”―Chuck Pfarrer, New York Times bestselling author of SEAL Target Geronimo
“It's impossible to read Claude Berube's Connor Stark novels and not be reminded of a fellow named Tom Clancy. Reading Syren’s Song is like riding a bullet. It takes off at supersonic speed and delivers stunning force. Claude Berube is a refreshing new entry into the world of military thrillers.”―John Gilstrap, author of Against All Enemies and the Jonathan Grave thriller series
“Syren’s Song is an absolute thriller! With the U.S. Navy’s smaller and less engaged presence around the globe, the need to adequately safeguard the sea lanes of communication remains a critical challenge, and Claude Berube takes the fight to the next level. Another amazing accomplishment for this generation’s Tom Clancy!”―Cdr. Kirk S. Lippold, USN (Ret.), commanding officer of USS Cole (DDG 67) when it was attacked by al-Qaeda terrorists
“Reading this second Connor Stark novel is like meeting up with old friends not seen in a long time. The characters are portrayed with such depth and realism that we are soon reacquainted and riveted on the edge of our seats as they recount this gripping thriller that unfolds over the course of thirty-three days. We have no problems feeling each one’s emotions, good and bad. This complicated tale is told in a way that we easily comprehend what’s happening―even the scientific aspects―and Berube expertly spins separate threads into an intricately woven tapestry that raises the hairs on our necks and sends shivers down our spines.”―Pirates and Privateers
"Syren’s Song is a fine book, one that makes Berube’s growing number of fans eager for the next Connor Stark adventure. Readers will look forward to another plot that’s intricate yet understandable, to plenty of action, and to spending more time with these increasingly intriguing characters."―Briar Patch Books at LindaBrinson.com
“Impressively well-written from first page to last, Syren's Song is a compelling and entertaining novel that will hold the reader's rapt attention with its deftly construction action that never lets up until the climatic conclusion. A solid entertainment and the kind of novel that block buster action/adventure movies are made from, Syren's Song is very highly recommended.”―Midwest Book Review
“Many have compared Berube to Tom Clancy, but unlike Jack Ryan, it is clear that Connor Stark has no particular political ambitions to serve as the leader of the free world. Instead, Stark, Golzari, and the other protagonists of this story are people who have been broken in many ways by life but who still seek to serve others and fulfill their responsibilities within our broken contemporary world despite their warped nature and horrific past. This book is full of people haunted by demons.”―Naval History Book Reviews
“After only a few pages of this new thriller at sea by Claude Berube, it is obvious that the author knows what he’s talking about. The twists of the plot and the authenticity of the conflict make this a recommended read.”―Mystery Scene Magazine
"Claude Berube has a gift for novel writing. He has created a fantastic story that introduces readers to the possibilities of an insurgency at sea, potential uses for nascent technologies, and positive attributes of private security firms. Syren’s Song belongs in the genre of thrillers written by popular and well-known authors such as James Rollins and Clive Cussler."―The Strategy Bridge.com
“Syren’s Song is a full-octane spy and military thriller. Claude Berube dives straight into action from the first line and is extremely good in keeping your interest throughout this fast-paced thriller. He is one of a handful of authors that mixes in a captivating plot with great character development. I highly recommend this novel if you’re a fan of Tom Clancy or Clive Cussler. You won’t be disappointed.”―San Diego Book Review
"Syren’s Song stirs up a cocktail of classic Tom Clancy plot mix, shaken at a Clive Cussler speed, with a sprig of Dale Brown for flair."―CIMSEC.org

Several characters are back in this second book of "Connor Stark" and like the first, continue to be a good read. Connor Stark's character is a decent blend of Get'rDone and Old Salt.
This book sets the interesting fictional (and perhaps problematic) realm of private security firms operating on the seas of the world in what would appear in our headlines as low intensity conflict. The intensity is pretty high when you follow in Stark's bootsteps.
Enjoyed this fun read on a cruise, only gripe was I finished it so fast I had to scramble for something else afterward.
I highly recommend this book for an entertaining, unique, and exciting read!
