A great resource to hold on to. I read it through, marking up lots of sections. I'll re-read it again in a bit as I work on blurbs. Highly recommend for any author.
Writer of science fiction and action/adventure thrillers. Voracious reader.

Not sure what I think. Did I enjoy it? Sorta. I did finish it, so that's something.
Not a spoiler per se, but the end lacked oomph. It builds and builds and builds then petered out into "everything was fine."
While not the main point of the book, I found myself more and more infuriated with not just our recent 3-4 Presidents but world leaders of the last 20 years.
A lot of people saw Putin coming, and weren't silent about it. And we did nothing.
Reading this while the invasion of Ukraine rages was extra.... extra.
One thing I found particularly poignant, having been scolded on social media more than once. "Do you want a nuclear war?" Putin of course threatens the use of Nukes because he knows that the west has grown so lazy and timid that even the idea of them makes us turn a blind eye to his transgressions.
