I've read this book 23 times and I swear it get's better every time I read it. Stephen Hunter is without a doubt one of the best military suspense writers of our time, or any time for that matter. I can't wait to read it again!

Oh how I wish I could read faster, because I can't wait for the next page, but then again, the faster I read the sooner it's over!!

I read this book in about a 3 day period. I just couldn't put it down. Very vivid descriptions of battlefield tactics and weapons.(I love that kind of stuff) Great suspense and quite a bit of humor as well. Definately a 5 star book.

An excellent face paced book. Very very believable, which in my opinion is very important to any story. Hunter stays focused on the story, and hardly ever strays away from the plot with unneeded details. You'll find yourself sweating at the end of the book. The tension the reader experiences at the climax is amazing.

Highly readable action thriller, one of the better ones that I have read in this genre. Genuinely exciting and a real age turner, I had a hard time putting this down. Highly recommended.
