Review by ponsonby
Moderate entry in Robinson's series of tales about Arab terrorism. Large chucnks of stuff about military planning and raids, not very interesting. Basic storyline about French collaborating with Saudi Prince in blowing up the oil industry not very credible. Some submarine action but very little. Admiral Morgan reduced to a cariacture of himself. Lacks characterisation.
Review by Balthazar-Lawson
This book needs a good editor to cut out about 200 pages. It's too long, too repetitive and over detailed in places. The detail doesn't add to the story but drags it out and is distracting.<br/><br/>Even though I can totally put aside reality when reading, the plot to this was rather poorly structured. There was no logic to the premise and the outcome was so predictable.<br/><br/>Not as good as his earlier books.
