Product Description

Product Description

“Dale Brown is a superb storyteller.”

—W.E.B. Griffin

 

A perennial New York Times bestselling author whom Clive Cussler calls, “The best military writer in the country,” the incomparable Dale Brown joins forces once more with coauthor Jim DeFelice for Whiplash—a breathtaking international thriller starring their popular Dreamland team. Brown, who followed up his debut blockbuster Flight of the Old Dog with a remarkable string of hits now plunges the new elite high-tech Whiplash unit into harm’s way, as they race to thwart a terrifying plot to unleash nuclear terror and global chaos on the eve of historic reconciliation between the United States and Iran.

From the Back Cover

Peace is an illusion . . .The Apocalypse is days away.

The world’s attention is focused on the historic plans of the U.S. and Iranian presidents to lay down their swords. But on the African continent, one man holds the power to obliterate the peace by unleashing terror and global chaos—and no one sees it coming.

Hiding behind the bloody madness of tribal warfare in the Horn of Africa, Iranian functionary-turned-fanatic Bani Aberhadji has achieved the impossible—single-handedly creating a vast, invisible network dedicated to the construction, delivery, and detonation of a nuclear nightmare. Only by chance are American agents now learning of its existence, and it may already be too late.

Born from the ashes of Dreamland, the covert strike force Whiplash is armed and ready to spring into action—led by Dreamland veterans Danny Freah and former acepilot, now Washington insider, Breanna Stockard. But Aberhadji’s web of death is wide and well concealed . . . and the doomsday clock is ticking.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dale Brown in name only. Nov. 23 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This has to be the worst Dale Brown book I've ever read.
The plot is plodding and the length of the novel could have been halved. I had absolutely no interest in any of the characters and really didn't care as to any of their fates, but the worst thing about this book is that I don't think Dale Brown had any hand in it's writing.
Mr Brown's contribution seems to have been to allow the author to use his characters and that's it!
I have everything by Dale Brown and his early books were so vividly written that I felt that I was in the cockpit with the pilots but the author of this junk doesn't seem to have been near a fighter, let alone done any research.
As for the ridiculous finale, words fail me.
The quality of his recent work results in me really having to re-think buying the next D.B. book, and this from someone who automatically bought each of his novels at first sight.
Come on Dale, your early stuff was great, I know you can do better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dale Brown's Dreamland: Whiplash June 15 2010
By rsasdr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
A completely different style and tone for the Dreamland series (and Dale Brown in general), Dreamland: Whiplash shifts the series from focusing on aviation and military action in the recent past (filling in the gaps of Dale Brown's solo novel series timeline) and centers on CIA and covert action in the near future. Most of the old characters are dropped and new ones introduced. There's less technical descriptions. The vast majority of the action is on the ground, in Iran and central Africa, but since there's already dozens of Dale Brown books with airplanes and big battle scenes, who cares? It's a great thriller, realisitic and believable. Hopefully the series will continue to follow this style, because it was better than any Vince Flynn or Brad Thor books. I even liked it better than the previous Dreamland books, and it's too bad this book wasn't given a hardcover release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad to see another one in the series Dec 15 2009
By L. Giblin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was very happy to see that the Dreamland series wasn't over. My favorite characters of the series happened to be the Whiplash guys so this was right up my alley. If you were a fan of all the pilots and flying, this probably isn't for you. This book doesn't leave off right at the last Dreamland book, it instead jumps right into our current year so the characters are a bit older and Dreamland is no more. There's a new gang in town with a few of the old characters thrown in. A few new high tech toys are put to use but personnaly, I think the Dreamland team had better stuff. Overall, I enjoyed the book and hopefully we don't have to wait years for the next one to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Dale Brown book June 24 2010
By Lawrence Maturo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've liked all the Dale Brown books and this was no exception. The characters are like
old friends, and it's always good to see them again. It's also always nice to be able to
lose yourself in a good thriller told well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dale Brown's Whiplash Feb. 5 2010
By John Kully - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whiplash is a good book which could have been made better if written completely by Dale. Jim DeFelice is a good writer in his own right, but Dale seems to be more technical in his approach to researching his subjects and has a great grasp of military technologies. It's great to see old characters mature and new ones grow. Can't wait for the next one...
