  • Dordred
An enemy so evil they are willing to infect their own people with a deadly virus and send them out as weapons against the infidel. How does a nation faced with dwindling resources, a lack of political will and concensous as to the right thing to do fight such an enemy?

In steps the a Professional Military Contractor, Mike Derringer and the staff of Stratigic Solutions, Inc. See how Derringer's company of experienced men and woman, soldiers of fortune all, move in the nether world of the war on terrorism to meet and stop a threat that is beyond politics, or social correctness. Able and willing to go where armies, and government can't, SSI moves to protect a great nation from it's tied hands. Fact or fiction? Read Coyle and Tillman's work, then you decide.

Like the other reviewers I found the plot realistic. Using Professional Military Corporations, PMC's, seems to be the new thing.

However I found the characters to be too stereotypic. The lead female character was a world renowned doctor from England (hard to believe no US doctor was qualified), a world class rock climber, a runner, etc. After never having fired a gun she was judged proficient after only 15 minutes. And of course she made Miss America look like a dog. Couldn't we just once have a female who is not perfect or would that not be PC. The rest of the team was made up of the usual jokers, caring medics and ex-Marine gunnys and so on.

My other criticism was predictability. You knew ahead of time when the team was heading into an ambush, which they managed to do quite often. If I were running the place I'd think about firing the team leaders who were out planned throughout the entire book. I'd even think of firing the president of the corporation, e.g., a rent-a-cop to guard a building whose business often included killing people and it never crosses anyone's mind they may want to get even. You often say things to yourself like, "the receptionist is history" and you're right. You want to scream to the female lead as she bends over the wounded bad guy to hear his whispers, "you putz don't get near him". Ditto for the border scene where you know five pages in advance what is going to happen and it makes you just want to tell these people what idiots they really are and what to do. They never listen.

Overall realistic plot, but not a unique one. Characters are just too stereotyped.

Coyle's books never fail to deliver.

Good book
  • Vital Beast
If you like seeing the behind the scenes activity of how a corporation works then this is the book for you. The premise was interesting, but the pace of the book just sort of plodded along. Certainly wasn't a page turner.
  • BOND
I purchased this book and 2 others in the series based on Coyle's past work. I made it to page 40 before I thre it and the other 2 in my "sell this crap to Half Price books" pile.

You should be ashamed of yourseld Mr. Coyle. You lost a customer and a fan forever. I have been reading you since you first published Team Yankee. Never again.

There is more to this story than a thriller. But, before getting into this, I commend the authors for accuracy. Spreading biological agents into a Western population is difficult. Pandemics only occur when environmental conditions are right. Most bio-agents have a very short life once released into the atmosphere. Anthrax is the exception to this rule. I especially enjoyed the story because it is factual. The real bio-agent threat is crop diseases: wheat and rice rust. Hoof and mouth disease for cattle is next.

There are several subtle messages buried in the story. Our self induced vulnerability--no profiling--in order to be politically correct is one. Another is our insane fear of offending Muslims. Today, just as portrayed in the story, the U.S. can't send troops into the tribal regions of Pakistan to hunt down and kill the Taliban and al-Qaeda personnel.

In the story, the government hides all information pertaining to the Marburg attack. Instead of releasing all of the gory details and scaring the pants off our complacent citizens, the government covers up the facts to maintain the notion that we are safe from attack. Unfortunately, this is probably what would really happen. As the author's say in their Author's Note, "The fact that no overt act of terrorism has occurred since 9-11 must be attributed at lease in part to a great deal of good luck. Of course, that situation could change tomorrow morning. And some morning, it will" In this they are correct. I am afraid we will not come to our senses until we suffer an attack many times worse than 9-11.

Strategic Solutions, Inc., is a fictional Professional Military Corporation, hired by the government to do what the CIA and military should be doing, but can't because of our obsession with political correctness. Unpleasant things have to be done when at war, who does them only matters from a perception point of view. The story does a splendid job of pointing this out.
