Awesome addition to the series!
This whole book had me listening episode after episode wanting to hear more. Kinda like all sigler books. But once again, I still want the story to continue, good job Scott!
Another one knocked out of the park! But....
Sigler has done it again w this latest installment of the story EXCEPT for the increasingly pro-gay, anti-religion left wing politically correct crap that many authors seem to think we want to hear. C'mon Scott, please knock it the shuck off before you start losing fans. If I want indoctrination I'll watch msnbc or take a college course or something. Don't ruin a good thing.
I can't say enough about Sigler and his books. They're well written and entertaining throughout.
This one is no exception. The entire series has been phenomenal, and this may have been the best installment.
I'm a little confused by the other reviewer's comment on pro-gay, as I didn't detect anything of that nature. I do feel the anti-religion undertones, though, which may have added to the other reviewer's sensitivity.
Personally, I appreciate the anti-religion perspective, but I could see how it would turn others off.
My one complaint is the cliffhanger ending. You better be almost done with the sequel, Sigler!!! Or else!!
