Near Houston, Texas, an oil refinery belonging to one of the world's largest multi-national energy companies is destroyed by a backpack nuclear device. This is just one of many attacks being perpetrated against this company around the world by a group whose mission is to stop global corporations and government organizations from plundering the world's natural resources in the name of profit.

Before this group strikes again, Jason Richter is called in with his top-secret high-tech military unit, code-named Task Force TALON. Richter believes there is only one strategy with which to snare his opponents: find, pursue, engage, and kill. And the only way to do this is to beat them at their own game: be unconventional, swift, and brutal enough to strike fear into the hearts of the most dedicated terrorist. Richter must also uncover a mole high-up within the government, who is in pursuit of his own personal revenge.

If Richter fails, it won't be just the lives of his team that are lost, but America itself.

    " It was pretty pridictable(SP?). Could do without all the swear words. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Slossar | 12/11/2013

    " This Book, was a great book that has to do with a some-what futuristic society where everything is controlled by a dictator like company. This book has to do with the rebels that stand up for their rights, and the people that are trying to survive. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debbie | 12/4/2013

    " While the book started with an interesting premise of terrorists against the US, it quickly degraded, then add the R rated language and I can only recommend - don't bother. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 10/19/2013

    " This book was a little hard to follow. It had a lot of characters. The book reminded me of a guy movie. Lots of action. I just found it a little hard to keep track of everything going on in the fights. Will make a good movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 9/11/2013

    " Preposterous action story about a team put together to fight terrorists, using cyborg units that the hero rides inside to chase the bad guys. This is the first in this series, but the 2nd I'd read of them - this is better than Edge of Battle, but still fairly silly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter | 8/15/2013

    " Just picked it up off the shelf at the gym. Strike force in ex-skeleton "robot" suits versus eco-terrorists. PRetty silly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karl Schaeffer | 8/11/2013

    " What's worse? Terrorists or evil oil tycoons... "misguided" environmental activists or ex soviet era Russian hooligans? Lots of bad guys in this one. Lots of over the top technology too. And the technology always works; which seems a little unreal to me. But hey I read it anyways. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clark | 6/21/2013

    " Was fun to listen to en route to Texas. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paddy Furniture | 4/23/2013

    " It was so bad I couldnt even finish. Dale Brown failed miserably. Simply being a veteran of the armed forces does not mean you can write a spellbinding novel about anything military. Brown demonstrates this very well. Please pass this one up. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dirk | 4/13/2013

    " In einem Wort: Peinlich "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Daniel Noyes | 3/5/2013

    " I had a hard time even finishing this one. I will not waste time reading anything by this author again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andykay | 12/6/2012

    " 400 pages of people arguing, followed by a lack luster ending you can see coming a mile away. A turgid waste of paper. Threw it in the bin after struggling to finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steven Turek | 8/26/2012

    " The spanish in this book is all wrong. It seems like the author just pulled it off of some free online translator. The story was decent, but I was distracted the entire time by the Latin characters speaking Spanish that is plain wrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clyn | 7/28/2012

    " Interesting, a little too futuristic and fantastic for me. I like the McLanahan series better! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anne | 4/4/2012

    " Totally unbelievable plot, stereotyped characters, even poor editing "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Terri | 3/22/2012

    " This book was rather dull, disjointed and confusing. What begins with an exciting nuclear attack plods along with implausable technology and villans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harriet | 3/20/2012

    " Not normally my kind of book. I think it was OK because it was an abridged version on CD. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry | 2/16/2012

    " It was an entertaining book to listen to that helped get me through long hours of driving at night. It was pretty predictable, but had a strong plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamelyn | 1/28/2012

    " The terrorism parts are shocking and scary and great. There are some parts in between the action scenes that could use some work, they read like a romance novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug Hauser | 8/20/2011

    " First Brown Book. Not as believable as Clancy, or Flynn or Thor...... Good enough to try one more. "

    " I like Dan Brown,

    This offers a new exo-skeleton technology
    There is the usual us vs them, the power of the individual standing up to the evils of bureaucracy thing, but the military fighting is always good.
    A true page turner, finished in less than 2 days. "
