Mike is so awesome, as warrior and as sex god, that he runs the danger of being an Ultimate Guy's Mary-Sue leading character.

Fortunately for this reader, he falls short of this danger in two ways. First, he gets seriously (and very humanly) crushed by PTSD at the deaths of his closest people. Second, there are one or two other Baen authors who outrun him by light-years.

Having said all this, I enjoyed this action-adventure story. ( )

A few spoilers.

Just finished the ARC of this new novel in the "Ghost" series. The usual story, Mike and his Georgian cohorts take out batches of bad guys with a combination of hardcore weaponry and spiritual superiority. Along the way non-stop action with a mix of (the usual) dead bodies, hookers, and money. This time the adventure is in the far east, Honkers, Thailand, Sing, and Myanmar.

A few surprises. This novel has George as president, even though it is set in 2012. Evidently, the pain of a Democrat in the WH is too much? Also, this time Ghost seems to be able to say a few nice things about democracy, in that he praises democratic reforms in Myanmar, and even, so it seemed to me, acknowledged the predilection the military have for the blind following of orders and the supporting of fascist governments.

Overall, did not work as well for me as the previous in the series. Maybe it is the ARC nature of this version, or possibly, the co-authoring, however, it was still the expected adrenalin pumping read. ( )

The Kildara are fishing for pirates when they stumble across a haul that takes them across asia searching for a hidden nuclear reactor. A lighter less dark book then some of the previous ones but still a good read. ( )
