Yeah I know…..it’s tough to post everyday. That’s why I included the 2 words “Command Authority” in the title. No namby-pamby junk here. We want to separate the pretenders from the contenders and most of the real players post each day.
Mark Greaney is a world-beater; it is an asset that is demonstrated in full glory here, as the authors give readers an over-the-shoulder view of locales familiar and otherwise while maintaining a number of hairtrigger plots and well-considered pacing to bring home the goods yet again. If COMMAND AUTHORITY is in fact the last Clancy novel, then this series is certainly ending on a high note; if not, then Clancy and Greaney have set a high mark to reach and exceed.
