Reviewing a copy received from a Goodreads giveaway.

As a fan of this genre, I really wanted to like this book but the fact is I just don't. I really don't like to have to say that, but in this case it is the truth. There's four very glaring issues. The first, a very minor gripe, but still very glaring, is the many errors in grammar. It could have used a good read through by a copy editor or at least another individual with a good grasp of english grammar. The second, there's not enough drama between the many characters. Everyone is just too perfect. Even the terrorists all get along as if they are the best of friends. Drama between the characters would have added a level of excitement and interest that would have suited this story well. Drama between the main characters and their immediate superiors. Drama between the terrorists in the form of disagreements to the ongoing plan that was so extensively detailed to us, the readers. Even there could have been some drama appearing between Claire and Jake as a result of the two being thrust so quickly into a difficult and stressful situation. Yes everything is just so perfect that it comes off as appearing extremely unrealistic. There is drama in real life, and it is drama between the characters that make stories so much better. Thirdly, there's too much exposition and explanation of the meanings of terms and procedures used by the government organizations. Do military shows and movies use so much explanation? I can just imagine one of the characters pausing in the middle of a dialog to explain to us the meaning of an acronym they just used or to explain a procedure. Even with the terrorists, there was much detail given as to how they operated or how they expected the plan to proceed. It is all just too much. I give this book one star solely because it was very difficult for me to remain interested and entertained by it. In another light, this story might do well as a television movie, provided a bit more drama is added to the mix.

Amendment:I am giving it two stars because at least the author put forth some effort into writing a story and managed to complete it. That's more than I have ever accomplished.
