CAMobley Strikes again

After reading two other books written by Ms. Mobley I have found this book to be one of the best book I have picked up in quite a while. I got the books out of order from the way they were written but none the less the story line was well written and the happenings very believable. I am looking forward to future books written by Ms. Mobley.

Jerusha Bailey is back in charge.

Rules of Commnad kept me turning page after page, I had to know if Bailey would be able to pull out of this one and keep her crew alive. A terrific read, great for the beach days to come.

Excellent military page-turner based on detailed knowledge

The best Mobley yet. A fast developing political/military crisis demands decisive action to avoid a major catastrophe. Is Jerusha Bailey and the Navy up to the challenge? This is a believable piece ripped out of the headlines. C.A. Mobley, a retired 20-year Naval officer, bases the action on her detailed knowledge of Navy capabilities and procedures. Excellent.

A thriller that makes you second guess the military agenda

This is a true page turner that trancends the usual "military techno-thriller" category. Without the usual things that go along with novels of this ilk (i.e. mindless bravado, senseless violence, gratuitous sex, etc.), the author still provides much technical knowledge, and insider expertise that lends itself to the overall story. It made me question the agenda and motivations of the military and State Department organizations, but these kind of things are what a good story will do for you. I look forward to reading more fine novels from this new and exciting author in the future --- well worth the search and the price!

A tightly woven naval action yarn with a believable plot

Obviously written by someone who knows the Navy and knows enough technology to move it into a believable "next step." The story focuses on an attempted takeover of the Panama Canal with dire international consequences. The navy finds itself both the victim and hero of this coup and the author convinces you it could happen. Naval assets and personnel are deployed in an interesting tempo of action and interaction. While occasionally the mission and capabilities of some elements are strectched, that is done with good literary effect. Only a purist would object. Overall, a terrific read. I'm glad to have discovered this relatively newly published author.
