9780060746926: Ghost Force

The year is 2011.

An oil-hungry world is starving . . .

. . . and Argentina, with Russia's help, is determined to brutally wrest the petroleum-rich Falkland Islands from British hands. Enraged over this brazen act of international piracy, Great Britain dispatches a battle fleet to the islands for the second time in thirty years—unaware that Viper K-157, a lethal Russian Akula-class submarine, lies in wait, stuffed to the gunwales with ship-killingtorpedoes.

America cannot sit idle as hell explodes in the South Atlantic and, under the stern eye of Admiral Arnold Morgan, the military's most powerful weapon is unleashed to hammer Argentina into submission: the U.S. Navy SEALs. The outcome of the unforeseen war that's igniting in America's backyard ultimately depends upon her awesome "ghost force” and their successful execution of two remarkable clandestine missions—while the consequences of failure may be too terrible to consider.

About the Author:

Patrick Robinson is the author of seven international bestselling suspense thrillers, including Nimitz Class and Hunter Killer, as well as several nonfiction bestsellers. He divides his time between Ireland and Cape Cod.

From AudioFile:

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 FORCEā 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.
