While on a mission in Afghanistan four of the remaining squad of Rangers in the 75th Infantry Regiment swore an oath to their dying Sergeant to take care of his family back in the states. And, that they did plus some. So, when the United States starts tearing itself apart under the new administration their efforts become more intensified. It is now a matter of life or death. Will they still be able to keep their promise?
Watson, Allen, and Allen combined efforts in their first novel of the Stolen Liberty series, Behind The Curtain is one of the best political/military thrillers I have read. These three authors have seamlessly brought their talents together in this action-packed book. Having read each of them individually I was unable to tell who wrote which part.
The first chapter of the book was a tough read for me. But, once I read farther into the book I was able to understand its relevance. The book hooked me and was hard to put down. To me, there is never a good place to leave a cliffhanger, but I feel they did a good job on this one. Of course, it made me cry.
I felt the e-book version that I read was a bit rushed to publication. There were quite a few more mistakes than usual. For that reason, I cannot give it a 5-star review. I do however highly recommend the book and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
4 out of 5 stars.
