And it just drug on forever, at least a pages morethan needed It’s been quite a while since I finished reading “State of the Union”, and reading this book was like visiting with an old friend.

I find this book to be behind the others in the series, although a must read if you wanna go more in deep in to the skin of Scot Harvath.

As always, military knowledge reigns supreme and the tech and toys have a realistic feel.
