I used to enjoy the Gray man books. Always a bit silly, but usually a good story and it held some suspense. I guess Greaney has run out of steam because his latest is just an unbelievable bore. The plot is absurd, there are so many plot holes (ah yes the Russian Spetsnaz troops - 30! can't keep 9 American special forces troops at bay, even though they knew they were inbound? As I got near the end of the book it was obvious Greaney was just typing nonsense, trying to finish it, screw it if it doesn't make sense. A good thriller works because it is believable, but Mission Critical just isn't. For example, an escaping spy gets an executive jet owner to fly her to the UK - and she says she will pay later. Come on. And it takes 12 hours to get from Washington to London. Even with fuel stops (why 3 not 2) he writes that it takes 12 hours? And who pays for the fuel at each stop?
Sad all around.

The only possible thing that could make Morgan's world even more difficult happened. The Japanese fleet off the coast of California was wiped out. An even that Morgan and friends and family only knew about because of the radio broadcasts from the Radio Free Redoubt. So far removed from them it barely warranted notice. That is until the Chinese retaliated by launching a nuclear counter-strike against Mac Dill Air Force base. This, did warrant their attention and had the potential to profoundly impact their lives.

I see why the writer uses a pseudonym- I would be embarrassed to have my name associated with such tripe. It must be his friends who wrote glowing reviews as even an illiterate would see this book for what it is, badly written boring nonsense. Do not go near it, even if given to you for free, stay far away.

On a ski vacation in the Swiss Alps high above St. Moritz, Alex Hawke and his young son, Alexei, are thrust into danger when the tram carrying them to the top of the mountain bursts into flame, separating the two. Before he can reach Alexei, the boy is snatched from the burning cable car by unknown assailants in a helicopter. Meanwhile, high above the skies of France, Vladimir Putin is aboard his presidential jet after escaping a bloodless coup in the Kremlin. When two flight attendants collapse and slip into unconsciousness, the Russian leader realizes the danger isn’t over.

As bad as some of his novels have been of late, this is the most pathetic to date. The plot was ridiculous and juvenile. But what topped it off was the narration which, by the use of thick, fake accents, was jarring to the ear. Thank God I was able to speed it up. What a waste of a credit!
