Comments:

Grokinos
I have enjoyed all the books in the series. This was well written but a bit formulaic and storyline was similar to a popular action movie. But all that can be overlooked because of the quality of writing and the quality of the previous books. The main character Stratton is a great character of modern action age, a flawed hero but a guy who tries the whole time to the right thing even if it does not always work out.

I cross genres frequently but action/thrillers are a preference. They have to be real. Weapons and strategy need to be legit and the writing suspenseful. John Stratton ticked all those boxes and I loved this book. I will now follow this author and suggest others do as well.

This was very interesting reading with the SBS using different tactics to find a solution to the crisis at hand.

Always a good read. I've read a number of these in both paperback and Kindle and they are always books that I can't put down. Well written and the story builds well too.
Der Bat
Keeps moving with solid characters. Another in the series with Stratton as the main character. Good technical detail and believable plot.
It started out pretty nicely. Believable plot, interesting locations etc. Then it started to unwind a bit towards the end and just felt a bit of an anti climax, a bit Jack Bauer 24 ish..

Neh..
