Publisher's Summary

Under secret orders from the president, U.S. Army Major Zeus Murphy sabotages a Chinese invasion fleet on the eve of its assault against Vietnam. But Murphy and fellow officer Win Christian are trapped behind enemy lines after Christian’s erratic behavior gives them away.
Back in America, President Chester Greene fails to convince Congress or the Pentagon that the Chinese invasion of Vietnam is the first step in a plan to rule Asia – and eventually go to war with the United States.
After Murphy and Christian dodge a Chinese armored division and return to Vietnam, Zeus proposes a plan to blunt the tank attack. His commanding officer orders him to stand down. Murphy disobeys to help the Vietnamese woman he loves; Christian goes with him to prove he’s not a coward. Within hours, the men are staring down the barrels of Chinese battle tanks at the border. The countdown to all-out war begins.…
In Larry Bond’s Red Dragon Rising: Shock of War, New York Times bestselling authors Larry Bond and Jim DeFelice imagine a horrifying near-future.

Disappointing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Make sure central characters are credible. Many of the central characters simply were not realistic. For example, the authors created the character of Win Christian in a way that stretched believability. How could anyone like Christian graduate from West Point, reach the rank of Major and pass the training and profiling necessary to be assigned to important covert activities? Luke Daniels further detracted from Christian's character by giving him the whiney voice of a spoiled adolescent. Unfortunately, this was not the only flawed character further harmed by a weak performance. Both Luke Daniels and the authors, Bond and DeFelice have done much better work.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was very predictable and extremely unfulfilling - not up to the standards of Larry Bond.

Decent Military Thriller with Great Narration

The narration was great and the overarching plot good but there were some holes in the story and areas that should have been expanded on.
