Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Hunt and Hunsinger have the military and political backgrounds to make their first effort together a great page-turning experience. Colonel David Gibson, a retired special-ops officer, drops his mom off at Logan Airport in Boston while Christina Marchetti, a political consultant, is dropping off her sister. The pair’s relatives are on the same plane, and shortly after it leaves the tarmac, it stops on the runway. The airport quickly closes down, and the colonel and Marchetti start working together to save their loved ones from deadly hijackers. But the plane is only a small part of a much larger plan to instill fear and chaos into the U.S. citizenry. With the narrative jumping back and forth between the two protagonists, the colonel and Marchetti must use their different skills and connections to stop the conspiracy. The relentless pacing and full-bodied characters make Terror Red a must for thriller fans. Readers will be clamoring for a sequel. --Jeff Ayers

The book arrived this week. I heard Col. David Hunt describe if for Bill O"Reilly and decided to give it a read. It is fast-paced, definitely entertaining. I have been watching Col. Hunt's gravel-voiced analysis on Fox for years, and this book doesn't disappoint. Of course I like to read about good-guy heroes whacking terrs while the legal authorities fumble around with great vigor.

The authors trade points of view through the story which reminds me of Rick Riordan in the way it is handled. "David" and "Christine". Amazing it is set in Boston and comes out the week after the Marathon Bombing.

The "gear queers" will like David's commentary about weapons and techniques...

I commend any first time authors. God Bless you and your future titles.

1. Fast read. And the Colonel obviously has been there, done that, has the scars and bars. But ...

2. It was a difficult read because of the female counterpoint. Grinding my teeth over her stupid, sophomoric attitudes by the first 1/4 of the book. Actively wanted to rip her pages out of my copy the further into her juvenile, moronic stupidity the book forced me to endure. Rarely have I been so aggravated by a character.

3. Plausible scenario ... the massive 'terrorist incident' as cover for the actual event. And the inability of our federal agencies to recognize and deal with it hits all the right notes. I'd hazard a guess Colonel Hunt is letting more than a little steam off in this novel.

God Bless our men who, in the dark and unknown, do those things which let us enjoy the lives we have.

Great characterization! So easy to distinguish who is saying what without being told...and it is joyfully obvious that Christina's script was written by the co-author, a woman, for Christina sounds so like a woman would in dangerous circumstances...her comments and actions will often have you laughing on the floor! Likewise, it's obvious the character of Col. Gibson was created by the co-author Col. Hunt. Excellent dialogue! I couldn't put this novel down, enjoying the action, the plot, and certainly the characters!

Colonel David Hunt knows his topic from decades of serving the United States in the military. This is a can't put down thriller, topical, exciting and all too plausible. His co-author knows her stuff and writes extraordinarily well. I definitely recommend it as a thriller and as a warning for possible terror threats from Radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood. Political correctness needs to land in the dust bin immediately.

The Gibson (the hero) chapters were great. But they are always followed by a Marchetti ( his tag along girl friend) chapter which range from annoying to a complete waste. The book became a better read when I skimmed or in some cases completely skipped the Marchetti chapters.

Terror Red follows that formula - Take Bolan and Co. and a wisecracking Plum and pit them against a band of terrorists. I was surprised at all the great reviews, but that is simply a matter of taste I guess.
I found the story rather mindless and the back and forth chapter switching between David and Christina's viewpoint irritating.
The book had a few good points. The story moved quickly and there was a singular plot throughout the book. There was not much filler, just a very small hint of romance, and the good guys won. However, that was about it for redeeming qualities.
This book read more like a comic book, with the hero and newly anointed heroine overcoming all odds, escaping from every bad situation, killing the enemy with pinpoint marksmanship every time and surviving explosion after explosion while the casualties mount all around them. Some of this might have been believable I guess for David, but Christina???? She's a political consultant !!!!!
She displays some of the wisecracking attitude of Stephanie Plum,(even uttering "BITE ME" a few times) and her persona gets quite boring after awhile. And by the way she somehow acquires the shooting skill of a SWAT Team member in one evening, racking up a few terrorists of her own.
An even bigger issue is at the end of the book the authors keep the door open for a sequel. Oh boy!!

If you are looking for a fast (lots of blank spaces on lots of pages) brainless, throw all logic aside, shoot em up terrorist read by all means step right up and purchase this book. It will fill that need very well.
Unfortunately, I found that out the hard way. For me, one of the worst books I've read in a long,long time.

This is exactly what I was looking for...fast-paced, interesting, compelling characters, and believable. A really awesome ride. The current climate is certainly ready for a story like this.

This is another great read. I am addicted to this type of book. The terror vigilantes are super. Each one has their own special skill. Then there are David and Christine. They grow on each other. The Muslim Brotherhood is even more sinister than I thought. Granted the book is fiction but there is enough information there to make one not want to live in one of the large cities, at least on the East Coast. The only disappointment I had was whether the "romance" will develop further. I hope there is a sequel of sort to make this happen.
