Publisher Description

“Dale Brown is a superb storyteller.” —W. E. B. Griffin

“The best military writer in the country.” —Clive Cusslar

Former Air Force captain and New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown is an acknowledged master when it comes to bringing military action to breathtaking life and he has received glowing accolades since his debut publication, Flight of the Old Dog. Tiger’s Claw proves once again that every rave has been well deserved. Set in the near future, Tiger’s Claw imagines a scenario in which tensions escalate between an economically powerful China and a United States weakened by a massive economic downfall, bringing the two superpowers to the brink of total destruction. Brown’s popular protagonist, retired Air Force lieutenant-general Patrick McLanahan (of A Time for Patriots, Rogue Forces, and other Brown bestsellers), is back with his son Brad McLanahan and they’re preparing for the impending apocalyptic clash of men and military technology. The incomparable Dale Brown scores again with a frighteningly possible story of war and global politics that’s ideal for fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.

Quotes

  • “The story grips the reader from the opening page right up to the shocking conclusion. Brown knows how to deliver action with a military slant without making it too tech-heavy for readers not familiar with the jargon.”

    " Dale Brown writes a great military thriller. The pacing on this one was a bit slow. And it is obvious that this is part of an arc. Not necessary his best but worthwhile reading. "

    " It was way too technical and it seemed that the publisher only gave him a certain number of pages because he wrapped the story up way to fast. He should have left out some of the technical stuff that didn't add to the story and then he would have time to finish the story. "

    " OK, but not enough action, too much geopolitical stuff "

    " My first Dale Brown book - and certainly my last. Tom Clancy without any of the redeeming qualities. I enjoy the geopolitical plot and find the military hardware descriptions interesting (to a point, and like Clancy, he often doesn't know when to stop; sometimes I felt like I was reading an inventory sheet for an Offut AFB base storeroom). But subtlety and nuance are apparently not writing tools Mr. Brown covered in his writing class after the Air Force. Most of the good guys were cartoonish one dimensional characters spouting neocon bromides or, if they are bad guys, acting as neocons would expect them to behave, and both were a big turn off. I am generally someone who believes in making sure our country is properly protected, but also understand the world is pretty complicated, and Mr. Brown's frequent derision for divergent viewpoints on economic matters and their impact on national defense got tiresome quickly. And here's more bad news: the ending seemed tailor-made to tee up "Tiger's Claw II - The Chinese have more nutjobs too." Read "The Bear and the Dragon" instead. "

    " I used to be able to depend on Brown for an entertaining, high-tech page-turner, but this is just gruesome. Lots of talk-talk-talk explication with very little payoff in the form of a few predictable, tiresome "action" scenes. The politics are laughable, and I did. "

    " This was a weak book with a plot fluffed up by pages of jargon and unnecessary side stories. Disappointing. "

    " I found this novel interesting because of the characters and the subject. Not always easy with this author who has written some clinkers, especially around latino immigration. 7 of 10 stars "

    " Good development of one character, but sticks close to the usual Dale Brown formula. Entertaining set up of the conflict, but then lags, and then wraps up far too quickly. "

    " overall... crap, if the last 10 pages or so were different it would be AWESOME but the ending just killed the whole series really with patrick acting (what i would call) completely out of character and i also felt the ending was way too rushed, however still a good read "

    " The book was very thorough in its description of military hardware. I liked that though, and the plot was very intense. "

    " To me this one was just okay. China is the new biggest enemy to the US and The Maclanahan family will have to save the day again! It was still a fun read and it leaves you waiting for the next book to see what happens next. "

    " When will I learn? An author's style does not change for the better although I have known some whose styles have deteriorated. Mr. Brown's descriptions and dialog is just as trite, verbose and redundant as ever. I'm going to add him to my "Don't Bother" list. "

    " Basic book. The story line is getting old. Would actually rate this a little below a 3...but not a 2. May have to give up on Brown. "
