    This really is awful and the author s books continue their downward spiral in quality.This tries to be a Tom Clancy style global power thriller, the theme here being the retaking of the Falklands by Argentina The British reaction does not go well and it takes the brilliance of the US to sort things out.It is badly written and incredibly right wing The author uses the book as a political platform to attack the Labour Government that was in office at the time of writing, but it is so badly done This really is awful and the author s books continue their downward spiral in quality.This tries to be a Tom Clancy style global power thriller, the theme here being the retaking of the Falklands by Argentina The British reaction does not go well and it takes the brilliance of the US to sort things out.It is badly written and incredibly right wing The author uses the book as a political platform to attack the Labour Government that was in office at the time of writing, but it is so badly done with so many unrealistic portrayals and actions The research remember this is a British author is inept the Argentinians are referred to as Args and not Argies for example and the Americans are so clever and smug it s like the author is writing them a love letter.Patrick Robinson s first two or three books were pretty good but I don t know what has got into him, his recent efforts should be avoided like the plague I will certainly never pick up one of his books again

    This book had too many coincidences that it just got boring Also the beginning of the book had almost nothing to do with the end of the book I have a problem that I must finish every book that I start, so this is one that I was racing to finish.

    In this entry in the Admiral Morgan series, it s 2011 and the Russians make a secret alliance with the Argentinians to take the Falkland Islands The British, under a Labour government, quickly lose the war An SAS unit is stranded on one of the islands.The team needs to be rescued, and new peace negotiated, and a Russian sub needs sinking Morgan takes command, and accomplishes all three.Very good, although the Admiral is romanticised quite a lot.

    Took a long time to get moving, weak characters relying on previous books a problem Clancy had and had quite a few facts wrong Hell, if I can spot em I think I ll have a look at his first books, but I would hope there s some improvement, cause there s some rave reviews on the back.

    This started out as a rage read, and ended as a slog.I don t have much good to say about it I mainly finished it because I wanted to see if it was possible for the author not to include a single woman with agency The only woman one might argue was spoken of as a creature of intelligence and with the ability to make decisions beyond preparing food was Margaret Thatcher, and that doesn t really count seeing as she is a historical character and was treated as such.The only female included for mor This started out as a rage read, and ended as a slog.I don t have much good to say about it I mainly finished it because I wanted to see if it was possible for the author not to include a single woman with agency The only woman one might argue was spoken of as a creature of intelligence and with the ability to make decisions beyond preparing food was Margaret Thatcher, and that doesn t really count seeing as she is a historical character and was treated as such.The only female included forthan three lines at a time was actually hinted at as a possibly thinking human with abilities beyond looking pretty and asking dumb questions But not before page 297 And even she was only included to bond together the two superb special force officers her brother and husband, respectively.To make a potentially very long review short er , here are a few bullet points to indicate how bad this book is Starts with a list of principal characters All of whom are men except for those denoted as wives One of the principal characters is only included in a single passage, and there he is simply described as one hugely successful homosexual pop singer There is no reappearance, nor does his sexuality seem to have any relevance to any part of the plot or story At least 20% of this book is just long form lists of military inventory Another 20% is naming various characters Many of whom does nothing relevant and are only briefly featured There are several extremely cringey and overly done passages indicating how stupid people are All of whom are left wing women homosexual famous The superhero of the book is someone who everybody admires and loves But everything he does would make him extremely unlikeable in the real world Said superhero is often called The Man Yes, out loud No, no one bats an eye Several characters swing between being brilliant and dumber than dirt, depending on what the story needs No realistic sense of how noisy a gale or an engine is Again completely quiet extremely noisy depending on what the story needs Apparently special forces don t check the weather forecast before dumping into the south Atlantic sea, but rather prefer to eyeball the wind A Russian submarine is impossible to find in one part of the story where that is necessary , and very easy to find in the end of the story since our American heroes are coming in to sink the bugger The story is a slog to get through in large part because every single character is flatter than the paper they re described on To summarize I read this Now you don t have to For your own sake, don t read it Just don t

    This was an EXTREMELY entertaining and very well written novel It just misses my ALL TIME FAVORTIES List by a hair Patrick Robinson, a very gifted storyteller, sets up a highly plausible scenario in which Argentina invades the British Falkland Islands and South Georgia for the second time in 30 years, following the discovery of huge oil and gas fields there Enormous investments have been in these discoveries by Exxon Mobil and British Petroleum Argentina appears to be so confident they will This was an EXTREMELY entertaining and very well written novel It just misses my ALL TIME FAVORTIES List by a hair Patrick Robinson, a very gifted storyteller, sets up a highly plausible scenario in which Argentina invades the British Falkland Islands and South Georgia for the second time in 30 years, following the discovery of huge oil and gas fields there Enormous investments have been in these discoveries by Exxon Mobil and British Petroleum Argentina appears to be so confident they will prevail in this act of piracy, it is almost like they have a silent partner on their side The American military intelligence community monitoring world events leading up to this invasion thinks that silent partner may be none other than Russia In the 1982 invasion a confident Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher backed by the then very strong British Navy, kicked out the Argentinian invaders in short order In the novel, written in 2005 and set in 2011, the Labour Party Prime Minister and his liberal government have gutted the once invincible British military, particularly the navy, by continued construction delays, cancellation of much needed undated weapon systems, and other devastating actions and inactions The British fleet that sails to meet the Argentinians also referred to as the Args and gauchos of the pampas is a shadow of its former self The results are predictable When it appears that all is lost for British, a surprising series of clandestine actions from an unexpected source, i.e., The Ghost Force, begins to indicate that all is not lost Any further elaboration would be too much of a spoiler for this EXCELLENT book I REALLY liked it very much and do recommend it in the very highest terms Book 48 of revised 2012 target 70 Jan 10 Feb 11 Mar 9 Apr 8 May 7 Jun 3

    Alright, in addition to not really liking thrillers involving aliens, I apparently am not big on naval warfare thrillers either Again, when you are on an island in Northern Germany with little access to English books, you will try anything This book takes place in the near future, and Russia, fearful of losing its easy access to Siberian oil as the Siberians are getting restless, teams up with Argentina to take over the Falkland Islands from Great Britain Great Britain s WEAK, LIBERAL pri Alright, in addition to not really liking thrillers involving aliens, I apparently am not big on naval warfare thrillers either Again, when you are on an island in Northern Germany with little access to English books, you will try anything This book takes place in the near future, and Russia, fearful of losing its easy access to Siberian oil as the Siberians are getting restless, teams up with Argentina to take over the Falkland Islands from Great Britain Great Britain s WEAK, LIBERAL prime minister and his party have slashed military spending, and are thus unsuccessful fighting off the Argentinians America fears for the loss of its oil companies profits in the region and therefore inserts two Special Forces teams into the Falklands to weaken Argentina There is plenty of submarine action too And secret little conferences in the White House So, in addition to this simply not being my type of book, I will say that the writing was not fluid in much of the book and there were some errors in chronology There were also a LOT of characters, and not always enough detail given to really separate them out Oh, and the main characters are all flawlessbut I guess maybe if you read these books you careabout the toys than about the characters Even then, there wasn t too much detail about the weapons, planes and boats that was new to me So, unless you are on a quest to read every naval warfare thriller ever, my suggestion is that perhaps this one is not one to waste money on, perhaps not even time

    So far, I have started three sentences and have deleted them all because I just don t know what to say regarding this story line Let me be clear I am sick of the Falkand Malvinas Islands For heaven s sake, one would think that the only notable naval battle in history was that fought by the British in the Falkland Islands I am committed and should be to reading the entire series, and have only one to go Checking the list of this author s books, it appears To the Death is his last in the So far, I have started three sentences and have deleted them all because I just don t know what to say regarding this story line Let me be clear I am sick of the Falkand Malvinas Islands For heaven s sake, one would think that the only notable naval battle in history was that fought by the British in the Falkland Islands I am committed and should be to reading the entire series, and have only one to go Checking the list of this author s books, it appears To the Death is his last in the Admiral Morgan series God, I hope so


  9. Jeff Jeff says:

    If I had to choose one phrase to describe this author it would be self righteous Now don t get me wrong, the author was good at setting a very thrilling pace and it was a very exciting story However, this author has a very naive view of the world and comes across as a southern good ol boy I found his writing extremely xenophobic and although I concede that this was a very exciting adventure, this book really offered nothing that would make this book a great or even a good book.


  10. Geni Geni says:

    I finally found an espionage thriller I didn t like You don t meet a character you care about until 2 3 through the book, and the illogical plot twists are ridiculous even for this genre full of absurd stories The author s political agenda and mine don t mesh at all, so that was the deal breaker What a sad way to end a year of reading.
