Too many sub plots but great airborne action May 31 1999
By Mr N Forbes-warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Alas, I was disappointed. The book's best parts were undoubtedly the A-10 Warthog scenes in the air over China. The research here is as detailed as Dale Brown's best! The Hong Kong scenes were also very well done(more good research there), but in between the action, there is too much talk. The Washington scenes seem to be all planning and not-going-anywhere; I found Shoshana's death quite infeasible(yeah, right, as if someone with a baby at home and a husband would selfishly let her past Mossad training suddenly take over her life) and an unnecessary subplot which turned Matt Pontowski into an unlikely Schwarzeneggar hero. And there are also too many references to actors, TV, and so on, as a device to emphasise a character description or action scene. I am trying to get a manuscript sold myself and I know from experience that this method will send that ms straight to the rejection pile, unless you're a bestseller . . . Nonetheless, I will still give the rest of Herman's work a go! If you're new to him, read FIREBREAK or CALL TO DUTY first, these are the best!

Fast moving book about a very slow plane. May 7 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I like reading books about planes. My favorite are about F-15 Eagles. I,ve read all Richard Herman jr.'s books and they are all very good. I didn't think he could take a plane like the A-10 and turn it into a fast moving book, but he did. Even though it has very slow airspeed it is very agile and maneuverable. It is a very well written book and I recomend it highly.

GREAT ACTIONS BUT NOT HERMAN'S BEST. Oct. 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The actions and combat scenes are great, but the story is not as smooth as Iron Gate. Too many sub-plots hurt the flow of the story. However, Richard Herman fans and readers who love action-packed military stories will enjoy the read. It also gives the readers who intend to read Iron Gate more back ground info about the main characters.

THE WORLD OF COVERT INTERVENTION AS CLEAR AS TODAYS NEWS.... March 2 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
MR. HERMAN HAS TOUCHED ON A PART OF OUR COUNTRIES MILITARY THAT THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER SERVED MAY NOT REALIZE. SUCH AS OUR INVOLVMENT IN EL SALVIDOR AND NICARAGUA TO JUST MENTION A COUPLE... MR HERMAN'S IN DEPTH COVERAGE OF A COVERT OPERATION AND HIS PERSONAL TOUCHES WITH THE INTERMINGLING OF THE CHARACTERS LENDS TO A SMOOTH DELIVERY OF THE MAIN AND SECONDARY STORY LINES........BRAVO BRAVO MR. HERMAN FOR YOUR VERY REALISTIC DELIVERY OF THIS ACTION THRILLER.....HIS MILITARY KNOWLEDGE ALSO LENT ITSELF TO THE AUTHENTICITY OF THIS ADVENTURE BOOK. THE SERIES HAS BEEN A PLEASURE TO READ AND A,"CAN'T PUT IT DOWN" TYPE OF READING PLEASURE... I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR FUTURE WORKS!
