Ghost Force America, Britain, and Russia are drawn into a battle for a gigantic oil strike on the desolate Falkland Islands in Patrick Robinson s newest international thriller The year is , and Russia is poised to help Argentina blast its way into the Falkland Islands, to hurl the ruling British out of the South Atlantic forever Enraged at this act of international piracy, Great Britain dispatches a battle fleet to the islands for the second time in thirty yearsLittle do they realize that Russia s lethal Akula class submarine, Viper , stuffed to the gunwales with ship killing torpedoes, lies in wait for the Royal Navy aircraft carrier, which is transporting the British fighter bomber air forceThe United States, under the indomitable Admiral Arnold Morgan s stern eye, unleashes Navy SEALs to hammer Argentina into submission, and in two breathtaking, clandestine missions, they smash their most expensive hardware guided missile warships and an entire fighter aircraft strike groupThe SEALs must make a death defying parachute drop into the freezing ocean, hit the battlefield in total secret, and obliterate their enemy all in lethal silence a ruthless, terrible attack carried out by a US ghost force This is classic Patrick Robinson spine tingling suspense, harrowing action, and intricately researched detail, all set against the backdrop of an uncanny what if scenario 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. 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.
