Publisher's Summary

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.

Disappointing

I expected a fast-paced thriller but this one just didn't engage me.

The basis of the plot is Robocop meets the War on Terror and it simply lacks credibility.

The characters don't develop enough to engage so you are left feeling, 'So what?'

I was more relieved than anything when I got to the end.
