Good story, tough heroes, very tough. Lots of action with no prisoners taken. For once the good guys win over truly evil pirates. I reduced it a couple of stars because in places it is poorly written. If you like or want political correctness this book is not for you.

Typical Coonts book, action, developed characters and a current world problem for his story. Coonts doesn't allow much political correctness in this book. BRAVO Stephen !

American politicians ran military operations, all the military professionals did was they obey orders and advise. Advise when asked.
