The respect paid by the officers who recognized him was exactly right; an unsmiling face, an inquisitive look, followed by a little nod.

Hardcover Paperback Kindle. Richard Herman, or Dick as he prefers to be called, used to be an officer in the Air Force who was a weapons systems officer on F-4s and navigated on C-130s. Herman retired, in the year 1983, with the rank of major after twenty-one years of service. He did two tours on active duty in Southeast Asia and did a total of 240 combat missions during his time in the Air Force. He also taught a course at the Air Force Academy and was an operations plans officer.

The most influential men in Russia, including the country's corrupt head of state, have gathered in a Moscow cemetery in the dead of winter to bury a fallen comrade. Before the ceremony has concluded, however, blood will stain the snow-covered ground, and Russia's ultimate power will have fallen into the hands of a man of ruthless and insane ambition.

U.S. President Madeline Turner has already weathered global crises, treachery, and insurrection in her own cabinet during the first months of her administration, and it has made her a stronger, more able leader. But her effectiveness will be tested to its limits now that the balance of power has shifted dangerously and dramatically in Europe. Closer to home, a small personal emergency has brought a one-time hero and Air Force legend into her life: Matt Pontowski, who will become the proud, capable yet lonely and beleaguered Commander-in-Chief's confidant, friend, and more.

Meanwhile, a fearsome, re-emergent Russian bear is on a rampage, spurred on by a criminal government in control of an awesome military arsenal. A suddenly vulnerable Poland faces invasion and possible extinction--not only from Russia, but from a newly emboldened expansionist Germany. And soon a brazen act of aggression has locked a determined Maddy Turner into a war of wits and weaponry with the fearless cabal of drug runners and murderers who now rule a one--time empire--a war that could reshape the face of the world and the future of freedom, and decide the fate of the President herself; whether she lives or dies.

A good part of this book is about teenagers at a military academy in New Mexico. They are of course important to the plot as one is the son of the protagonist while an other's mother is the President of the USA. They are all linked to a major international and political crisis, with Russian gangster oligarchs as the principal villains. They are overdrawn, and the plot at first appears exotic, but in view of what has been happening in Russia and Ukraine, perhaps the author was just prescient. Even so, this is not one of Herman's best. Too much of the dialogues and story development are just mawkish and he is trying too hard to be pc. What saves the book and merits the four stars are the author's ability to write what is after all a thriller and his eye for the absurdities and behavior of our political elite.

OK read, only problem is there are many spelling mistakes. Just a pet peeve of mine. This is the third Richard Herman book I've read, but one of his first. I'm trying to read them in chronological order, but I started with one of his latest. The newer books seem to have a better editor.
My only problem with his books is that there is a lot of fluff in the middle which takes away from the action at hand. Being this is the third book I've read, I can say this with conviction. Each one has at least three story lines going on at the same time; political/corporate, military, & spy/espionage. Usually the political/corporate aspect just drags the whole story down and much of it is inconsequential to the story. Otherwise, for the price, can't beat it. I bought most of his books in one night to have them in my library.

Another excellent book in this Series. This has been one of the best series of books that I have read and I have read hundreds of books. The storyline is excellent but I really was not happy with the ending. Shaw should have been fired because of all that he has done to hurt Maddy.

I thought this was an outstanding book. Once I began reading, I had a very difficult time putting it down. Thanks to Richard Herman for not only writing this book but others that contain some of the same characters. Being retired from the Air Force and having served under (then) Colonel Robert Beckel at Beale AFB, I especially enjoyed the Air Force connection to the story.

Glad to know Mr. Herman lives in the general area of Beale, near my Elk Grove, CA home.

Herman continues to improve with each book. This is the first with a series, previous had been mostly single character. Each of the prior books were military in nature and this one is more character development. the plot is realistic and seems to be in today's headlines.

Another great Richard Herman book. Can’t wait for the next Maddy Turner / Matt Pontowski story line. I definitely recommend

Sorry I bought two of this fellow's books. (via Kindle) lesson learned. Tidbit to the author. I believe you consistently got Russian general officer rank titles wrong. It is ColonelGeneral. (our equiv of a LTGen iirc) NOT GeneralColonel. Reminded me of Hawkeye and Radar's Corporal-Captain made up rank on a M.A.S.H. episode. And about as funny.
Richard Herman is one of my favorite authors...his first several books were page turners...but as he has gone deeper into the Potonski family...he has started to lose his edge...and this book read like it was written in a hurry. It jumps around...has incomplete characters...predictable sub-plots...yet it was still worth reading...but I suggest you borrow it from someone who shelled out the cash...or wait for paperback. Hopefully he will take a deep breath before he starts the next one, which the ending of the book clearly portends.
