OH WOW!!! This is a fantastic book! I and my husband now have a joint "favorite" writer! After reading it I said "OH MY what a "feel good" book! My hubby says "Wow, What a ride!! Awesome!". Trust me hubby is very hard to please! But in all seriousness if you want a good book to sit in front of a cozy fire with your dog at your feet and a warm cuppa nearby that will get you through this cold and snowy weather ... THIS IS THE BOOK!

Gordon writes with such ease! Yet he spins the most complicated plot! He tells us with such style and colorful descriptions that we can see and feel it! He reveals his genius with taking this story of two brothers born to a powerful ambitious man of both the Military and Politics, who dies before his sons are grown. They are left in the care of their equally driven and ambitious Uncle who puts the finishing touches on these well turned out men. Gideon and his brother, raised alike but once grown, choose only slightly different paths. Gideon has an uncanny gift as a sniper and not much interest in the Military as his future but his brother is all about the Military and especially covert ops!

Gordon gives us everything possibly needed to prepare the foundation to this amazing high action adventure story of power struggles, brilliant military strategies, covert operations and edge of your seat excitement!

Gideon is aware that his brother has made a name for himself as a maverick and has gone in to work undercover with Indonesian Pirates! BUT Gideon is not prepared when he is told that his brother has stopped communications with the US and appears to now be working with the enemy! Gideon refuses to believe that his brother has "turned to the dark side and he plans to work with his well connected Uncle to rescue his brother and clear his name! The problem is that someone more powerful wants this to become a War that Gideon is determined to stop. Gideon vows he will find his brother and get to the truth! From here on out just buckle your seatbelt and remember to breathe!!

I always like to compare an author to others so that you can get a feel for whether this book would be right for you, BUT Howard Gordon is in a class of his own. IF I had to compare then I would say Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, James Peterson, and many more well loved writers would be good company for Gordon ... Gordon is fast gaining on them! Well deserved praise for a great book!

About the Author

Howard Gordon was born in Queens NY, graduated from Princeton. You might not have realized it but you have probably been a fan of his for years. He produced and wrote episodes of many popular TV shows Beauty and the Beast, The X-Files, Buffy, Angel, Strange World, and 24 !! Gordon is married with 2 children and I truly hope he is hidden away furiously writing his next much anticipated novel!!
