Fast-paced, high-def view of all-to real events!
Greaney once again draws the reader back into the hurley-burley world of political intrigue, hardball diplomacy and an all-to-real scenario which will make the reader breathless! the story begins smoothly enough with jack ryan, jr but the plot splits and twists with such speed and agility the reader may feel the need to put down the book and catch their breath! yet the moment you try to put this book down you'll discover the characters and the context won't let you go! as with all of greaney's books, the reader senses the inexorable draw toward the climax of the story. greaney masterfully blends action & intrigue in such a delightful mix you'll find you simply choose to try to enter another chapter before sleep! as the story ends, you'll be constantly struggling to discipline your reading speed so you don't miss any of the myriads of details found in the closing chapters. the reader intuitively knows there is much more to learn of these characters; it is this knowledge which allows the reader to process this extremely frustrating political dénouement which reflects the true reality of "real politic!" mark greaney's has exceeded my every imagined expectation in "commander and chief." his writing is crisp, clean and wonderfully seasoned with incredible amounts of detail. he once again has earned every star in a 5 star rating! bravo & encore mark!
