review 1: This was a very well-written thriller. As always, I am aware of any issues with editing and there were a few instances of word usage errors ("the" instead of "they" or "to" instead of "too") but the plot and writing were more than sufficient to make up for it. I liked Beck's character as to his background and his current way of living. The only complaint I have is the resolution of the leak/secret leader. It was tied up too nicely to a nearly non-existent character. I almost wish it had been Bull, Gunner, or Frank or someone like that. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I will look for the next Becker book.
review 2: I really enjoyed this book. It took a basic idea and ran with it. Granted you have to suspend disbelief in much the same way that you
... moredo with a Tom Clancy book. How do all of these things keep happening to this same main character? But if you just sit back, try to catch your breath, and enjoy the ride it is a great mental vacation. A ton of action. Well, researched. Easy to follow transitions and segues. Its not War and Peace, but I was drawn in and had to finish this book quickly. I also enjoyed the setting as it took place mostly in Minnesota. less
