    8. Jack McDuff’s is very cool! The Saladin Strategy (The Jack McDuff series) by Norm Clark got me from page one (actually the prologue). Lots of smart action and real dialogue. I also loved the parts set in Northern Virginia and DC, where I grew up. But besides that, the author has woven together a gritty and complex plot that kept me reading. There are a ton of characters to keep track of, but the author did a good job making them memorable. This is one of those fun whirlwind thrillers that cata [...]

    11. I dont understand how anyone could possibly rate something like this so highly. The writing is atrocious. Sure there is some action and excitement but that cant rescue it from such infantile writing. An irritating waste of time. A 1 for writing and a 3 for story so I give it a 2.

    12. Templated genre taleWould give 3.75 stars if there were an allowable scale. A bit too much tell, not show, for a good read. Writing was not bad but somewhat lazy. A good story even though plotted with a big dose of coincidence and characters from central casting.
