20 hours 4 minutes
Two armed men board a 727 all but forgotten at an airfield in Angola. Hijacking the jet, they then slit the throat of the lone crew and fly to parts unknown. The consternation is immediate, as the CIA, FBI, and other agencies race to find out what happened, in the process elbowing one another in the sides a little too vigorously.

Fed up, the president of the United States turns to an outside investigator to determine the truth, an Army intelligence officer serving as special assistant to the secretary of homeland security. Delta Force major Carlos Guillermo Castillo, known as Charley, is the son of a German mother and a Tex-Mex father who was killed in the Vietnam War and awarded a Medal of Honor. A West Point graduate, a pilot, and a veteran of Desert Storm, Castillo has a sharp eye for the facts—and the reality behind them. Traveling undercover, he flies to Africa, and there, helped and hindered by unexpected allies and determined enemies, begins to untangle a story of frightening dimensions—a story that, unless he can do something about it, will end very, very badly indeed, not only for Castillo…but for all of America.

I've been a WEB Griffin fan for 30 years. I started out reading the Brotherhood of War in the 1980's. I've read most of his books and enjoy, now, listening to the audiobook versions while on my long daily commute. If you enjoy his character development and descriptive style, then you've got a treasure trove of various titles to choose from. I've never read a bad one. I would encourage anyone interested in this type of genre to give one of his books a try. I love them!

If you're a fan of WEB Griffin ( i.e. The Corps series), you'll like this book. I've read a lot of his books, and this one is pretty typical. Engaging military characters.

It is really not fair to review this book, since I never got past the first disk. There was so much repetition and minutiae that listening was excruciating. Clancy provides an extraordinary amount of detail, but he keeps the story moving. In this case the narrative was similar to, "first he dialed 7, then he dialed 6, then he dialed 5, then he dialed ..." I listened in disbelief, waiting and hoping the style would change. My desire to retain my sanity would not allow me to continue.

The book has more than its share of ra-ra military shanigans. However, the book is very well read and engrosing. Very enjoyable way to spend comunting time.
