Tensions between Siberia and Moscow are running high, but the sudden disappearance of leading top-tier Siberian politicians and oil executives sparks open outrage in the vast lands east of the Ural. Terrified that Siberia will sever their ties and deprive Russia of its most important oil source, Moscow turns to a new supplier in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands. In an undercover mission, they persuade Argentina to invade the islands again. In return for oil rights, Moscow's hunter-killer submarine, Viper 157, will take out the British aircraft carrier arriving to recapture the islands, leaving Argentina free to claim the 'malvinas.' The United States are furious at this act of international piracy - and the fact that their largest oil giant owns the very same oil rights. Under the stern eye of Admiral Morgan, the navy Seals bring in the legendary Commander Rick Hunter. Their mission: to hammer Argentina's military and free the Falklands. For the fabled Hunter, the assignment has struck close to home. His English brother-in-law and an SAS Special Forces team are trapped on East Falkland, on the run from an Argentinean shoot-to-kill man-hunt, out of contact.

Erik Steele has his work cut out for him narrating this jumble of a story that could more rightly be called "Falkland Islands War II." Instead it's entitled GHOST FORCEâ in reference to the shadowy presence of Russia in manipulating Argentina and England into going to war. Erik Steele beautifully interprets numerous accents, from huffing Russian generals to stuffy British politicians and fervent Argentineans. However, his Australian political advisor sounds off the mark; Steele plays him way too young and sounding far too much like Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. Ultimately, the story falls short. It's too much hot lead and derring-do and not enough careful plotting. Listen if you like action sagas and are not troubled by inconsistencies and unnecessary plot twists.
