This book is an easy read that is very engaging. I liked how the storyline progressed as well as the twists and turns. Portions of the book were quite predictable, while others were a bit of a surprise. Aside from the story the language is heavily loaded with TLAs (Three Letter Acronymns), which can get confusing when you cannot remember what a TLA stands for. One of the problems that I really have with this book, is the main character is severely injured at one point in the book, but his recovery only lasts a few months. The other is that after a specific point in the book (I'm trying not to divulge too much of the story), this newly formed team is able to gather all of the intelligence that they need to go after the enemy. It seemed a bit unrealistic to me. That said, I like how in the early portion of the book the US was luered into a situtation that they believed was too good to pass up. This is a critical fault of humans, where we will often ignore refuting data because we want the information to be true.
