La situazione in Arabia Saudita è insostenibile: le ricchezze petrolifere nelle mani di corrotti membri della famiglia reale, mentre il popolo della più grande nazione islamica è alla fame. Il principe Nasir, rigido fondamentalista, decide di giocare la sua carta e impadronirsi del potere, ma da solo non può farcela? Spunta quindi l'ombra di una grande potenza europea, pronta a mettere a disposizione uomini e una potente flotta sottomarina per scatenare una rivoluzione e bloccare l'afflusso di petrolio all'Occidente. L'intreccio di alleanze si fa sempre più complesso e, mentre dalle profondità marine partono missili da crociera diretti ai campi di oro nero, il Medio Oriente è di nuovo sconvolto da un'ondata di violenza che può paralizzare il mondo. L'intervento USA è inevitabile, e per condurre le operazioni viene richiamato sul campo l'ammiraglio Morgan che, nell'ultimo decisivo scontro, si troverà di fronte lo spauracchio di tutti i servizi segreti occidentali, il suo nemico storico, la sua nemesi: Ravi Rashood, capo di Hamas e disertore del SAS inglese.

Another great military thriller from Patrick Robinson. Whilst the character of Ray Kerman is getting a little past his used by date thankfully he only plays a (somewhat) minor role within this novel passing by at critical points to assist in part of the operation in Saudi Arabia. The crisis landing a Leggi tutto
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. Even though I can totally put aside reality when reading, the plot to this was rather poorly structured. There Leggi tutto

Clean, exciting thriller by an author who knows what readers want. Like his other work and recommend this one! Enjoy‼️
There may be two more books in this series, but I may call it quits for now. This is very similar to the author's previous books, in some respects, in that it is a technothriller with a global focus, it features Muslims as key villains, and it is up to the United States to save the world. It does no Leggi tutto
Having read all the previous books in the series , and thoroughly enjoyed them , I’m afraid I found this one well off the previous standard. Plot is key is the genre and I just found this one a bit too “unreal” throughout. The info re the oil industry and the Saudi royal family was interesting but I Leggi tutto

Intensely complicated By far one of the best reads I've had, ever. Superbly well written. The complexity of all the government involvements in this espionage, thriller, is hard, through pleasant to follow. The characters became alive as introduced and became like a close friend by the end of their jo Leggi tutto
Solid entry into the Admiral Morgan series by author Patrick Robinson. Admiral Morgan wasn’t as cantankerous as usual and the main antagonist was France. My only pet peeve is that the author continually refers to a Marine AH-1 “Super Cobra attack helicopter” that has a crew of 4 with a cabin. No ide Leggi tutto
