It's been two years since I read the last episode of the Swanson Series, Kill Zone so I honestly can't offer much comparison between the two novels in terms of pace and feel.

I can say however that there seemed to be less actual conflict in this novel and more political/behind the scenes maneuvering, from my vague memory the prior novel was more no holes barred action whereas this one is a little more 'big picture'.

Overall, it's an interesting story line (revolution in Saudi Arabia by Islamic Fundamentalists backed by Russia) however I found the Chinese involvement a bit odd - it didn't really serve much purpose and the subplot wasn't really resolved in a logical manner in this readers opinion. ( )

Not as good as Kill Zone. This had more of a feel of an abridged Tom Clancy. Too many entities involved; Russia, China (really?). Not enough sniper action from Kyle Swanson. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312551029, Hardcover)

On the heels of the New York Times bestselling Dead Shot comes the most thrilling installment of the Kyle Swanson series yet, in which an attempt at a new peace in the Middle East is shattered by an unknown attacker, and only Swanson can find out who’s responsible

At a 15th Century castle outside Edinburgh, Scotland, Sir Geoffrey Cornwell is brokering an unprecedented agreement. Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and the Israeli Foreign Minister are scheduled to sign an historic peace treaty—that is, until their meeting is violently interrupted by a missile strike that leaves the Foreign Minister of Israel dead and Cornwell and the Prince injured.

Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson is running covert missions in the mountains of Pakistan when he’s called away from duty. He leaves for the U.K., where he thwarts another attempt on the prince of Saudi Arabia’s life. The attackers are Middle Eastern, but they aren’t working for Al Qaeda—they’re employed by foreign operatives opposed to the peace agreement and determined to claim Saudi oil reserves for themselves by whatever means necessary. Meanwhile, out of hiding and back from the dead comes Juba, one of the deadliest terrorists in the world and Kyle Swanson’s nemesis, who is determined to exact revenge on the man who nearly took his life.

With scenes of tremendous suspense that span the globe, Clean Kill puts Swanson in the sights of a group whose greed and vengeance know no limits. But their deadly ambitions also bring them into his sights, which is the wrong place to be.
