A+ for plotting and story line
D- for editing - full of repetition and redundancy

Yep really good. A debut for Dewey Andreas & I want to read more of him. It's fast paced & interesting. The threat is realistic.

Totally lost interest when the supposed "hero" of the book flicked his cigarette into the ocean in the opening scene. Like watching someone throw litter out of their car window, not a very "hero" like action!

"Here's a premise that will keep you up at night: terrorists deeply embedded in Western society have set off a chain of attacks on U.S. and Canadian energy resources, killing hundreds and weakening the global economy. But there's a survivor of an attack on an offshore oil rig - former Special Forces soldier Dewey Andreas - who's not about to sit back and let the terrorists destroy his country. Fans of Vince Flynn (or of Brad Thor) will enjoy this debut for its gripping, fast-paced plot, independent hero, and international political intrigue; you can follow it up with its sequels, Coup d'Etat and The Last Refuge."

Not a grabber for me. Dragged a bit in the middle and closed fast, but left too many unanswered questions.

This book is great. Lots of action and characters work well together. It kept you on the edge of your seat right from the start. A+ read.

This was action packed but a little far fetched. I really enjoyed it but it does go a little over the top

But fear had no antidote; it was the enemy of the warrior.
