As a Brit I didn't like the fact the SAS are the bad guys in this book.
The book is filled with inconsistencies. For example at one point our hero loses radio contact because he has lost his helmet, which has the radio attached. Then a moment later he receives a radio message through his earpiece! At another point he escapes from some handcuffs using some det cord the bad guys missed in a search and then pulls out a stun grenade and a crossbow that were still in his pockets! So they missed those in the search too! Really?
Annoyingly the author refers to all sorts of imaginary military hardware such as the "maghook and "nitrogen charges" etc. Why? The book would have been so much better if he had decently researched accurate hardware.
It was fun in a rather teenage way, but I doubt I will continue the series. There are far better military action books out there.
