MY THOUGHTS
"The question is not can you hit the target. That is a teachable skill. The question is, can you make the shot? If you don't know the difference, then you are not a sniper." -Lee Thomas on sniping

"NO BATTLE PLAN SURVIVES FIRST CONTACT WITH THE ENEMY." -Murphy's Laws of Combat

The setting is July 1990 in a dangerous place, the world. Turmoil in the middle east is like a time bomb ready to go off. The world we live in is about to explode in a war. Saddam Hussein invades the little country of Kuwait. Why? It is very rich in oil.
Lee Thomas is right in the midst of everything. He seems like he's ready and knows it's going to happen before it does. We all have dreams but there's a fine line between a dream and a nightmare. And what's even worse, when those dreams and nightmares become reality.!
The storm is about to erupt and the port is there ready to be entered. I found that the book is right out there, in your face with reality, even though it is fiction. These wars are happening every day in today's world. Things haven't changed. I especially liked the little tool that was used as a weapon as such, a paperclip. Interesting how inventive you can be when under the gun, or knife as it was. Lee Thomas was pissed off, they were trying to kill him and he wasn't going to take it without a fight. Lee Thomas in his quote tells it all. Anyone who is trained can hit the target, but it takes a certain person to be able to take the shot. If you were there, beside Lee Thomas and you were trained, could you take the shot? It could mean a matter of life and death.
The book moves at a fast clip and it tells it like it is, not sugar coating. If you like espionage, thrillers and men who can take the shot, then pick up this book and stand beside Lee Thomas.
 
I received a copy of this book from the author and PUYB and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
