Not the greatest techno-thriller I've read, but interesting concept nonetheless. From 1-10 I'd rate it a 7.
Gribble looks like an author with a bright future. He can only improve in his next effort.

I rate books on a 1-10 basis, giving this an 8. It seemed like a good first effort, but didn't hold my attention as well as others of this genre. The book dragged in the beginning, picking up in the later pages. Hard to pinpoint why, but being an easy marker on this type of book, I thought he needed a little more experience.

The Middle East is in crisis as Syria develops a new laser weapon that manages to knock down a stealth fighter. Not only that, Syria is also planning to use the weapon, featuring a sophisticated laser radar(LADAR . . . hang on, hasn't Dale Brown borrowed this idea for BATTLE BORN! ), along with SCUD chemical missiles to invade the Golan Heights and ultimately Israel. So enter Lance Brandon, an Air Force commander who formerly worked on an experimental anti-missile laser system called the Airborne Laser LAb, an NKC-135 aircraft. He comes out of retirement and with the aid of assorted military and scientific colleagues, redevelops the laser systems for use in combat against the Syrians. Some excellent action, not just in the air but at sea as a naval wing of EA-6B Prowlers assists the laser plane, and on the ground a Special Forces unit is caught in a bombing raid! And there's more . . . the prose comes fast and furious and very easy to understand, especially when it comes to the weapons systems of the NKC-135 and the story is a great update of FLIGHT OF THE OLD DOG(re: The Kavaznya laser becomes a more feasible system in this one!) but definitely leaves Dale Brown sitting on the taxiing ramp! Don't miss it. I thought the characters, notably Lance and his married life, and the Special Forces unit were strong, and I very much look forward to reading the follow-on, SILENT SABRE. So buy this book now and get ready to rock!
