Delta Force major Carlos Guillermo Castillo, known as Charley, is the son of a German mother and a Tex-Mex father who was killed in the Vietnam War and awarded a Medal of Honor. A West Point graduate, a pilot, and a veteran of Desert Storm, Castillo has a sharp eye for the facts - and the reality behind them.
Traveling undercover, he flies to Africa, and there, helped and hindered by unexpected allies and determined enemies, he begins to untangle a story of frightening dimensions - a story that, unless he can do something about it, will end very, very badly indeed, not only for Castillo...but for all of America.

Interesting characters, good plot, slow paced.
The story starts out with a bang as a jet is stolen. Then the main characters are introduced and every detail on the main characters prior life is told through back story memories.
It can be a bit distracting at times but does have some intereting parts relating to the main character.
It takes a long time for things to happen and each aspect is drawn out. For example, when the characters are flying in a plane, the detailed call in to the tower goes through every aspect of the call in and landing....that gets boring. Much of the story is delivered the same way. I found my mind wandering off a lot as I listened.
If you are really into the whole military behavior and all the aspects of decoram that go along with it you will like it. I did enjoy the characters but would prefer an abridged version.
The ending, when it finally got to it, was rather anti-climatic.

Could have been better ...
First time reading W.E.B. Griffin. Interesting plot, well-developed characters but way too much "f..ing" in language and Castillo's desire to take every woman to bed gets tiresome. Too bad as without that it's a good book.
