Summary

The Delta Solution is an action-packed novel pitting Navy SEAL Mack Bedford (from Diamondhead and Intercept) against the Somali pirates operating off the southerly reaches of the lawless East African republic on the Indian Ocean. For the past three years, these heavily armed tribal brigands have been capturing and holding for ransom massive cargo ships, and violently demanding millions of dollars for their return. When the "Somali Marines" make a big mistake, seizing at gunpoint two United States ships and demanding a $15 million ransom for their return, hero Mack Bedford is deployed to obliterate them in the middle of the Indian Ocean, at all costs, once and for all.

If you like a nice bit of cheese

Patrick has always gone almost homoerotic when describing his seal characters, in the same way he always goes simpering schoolboy slave like when describing his conservative American women characters.

But in the past I have overlooked his faults in the cause of a good plot and a decent tale and I have either listened or read them all.

However this latest shabby offering is so cheesy all that is required to make it complete is a glass of port and some biscuits. The books failings are made even worse by the “American blockbuster” style delivery by the narrator.

Towards the end of the story it was so appalling I just got angry It gives a wholly inaccurate portrayal of the manner in which what we are supposed to believe are professional special forces people senior admirals and a retired admiral conduct themselves, the language they are likely to use and the manner in which they use it! Is a complete joke.

This is quite simply the single worst audio book I have ever listened to and the last Patrick Robinson I shall waste any of my money or credits upon.

very poor

I have read Patrick Robinson books from the start and enjoyed them all ,but I think he must had an off-day when he wrote this . I have listened to nearly half of this and just got so fed up with it I would welcome being boarding with pirates. I have consigned this to the big mistake bin .

Good story but needs editing, 33% too long

Patrick Robinson loves the US Navy seals. I don’t remember one of his books where they are not in some way the star of the novel. In Delta Solution, pirates from Somalia are nabbing boats like fishing in a stocked pond – catch, ransom and release. The US Navy is impotent to do anything about until the Delta Solution headed by Mack Bedford rolls onto the scene.

The narration is done by Peter Berkot who does an acceptably average job on with inflections and accepts. Here is the rub with this book, it’s at least two ship seizures too long and drags in the middle causing the “enough already” response. At one point, I wound up listening at 2X speed just to get the story moving. I am a strong Robinson fan but he has lost his voice since the Arnold Morgan series which ended badly – the terrorists ultimately getting what they wanted there too. I am going to the read the fourth book, but if he doesn’t turn the corner, I think it's the end of the line for Patrick Robinson.

I will never get that time back again

I would hazard that Mr. Robinson has some ghost writers. If this was the first of his books I ever read, I would never listen to another one. However his early stuff is brilliant. This was US ra ra rubbish. Mack Bedford and his bullet proof SEAL's are over blown to the max, I mean really give me a break. Since when do Muslim pirates eat ham sandwiches. As far as Peter Berkrot's reading went it was over played and really annoying. Somebody should edit these narrators and give them the proper pronunciation of some fairly basic seagoing terms like how to pronounce bow as in bow of a ship not a bow and arrow you putz. don't waste your money on this one.
