    Top Hook thankfully does not suffer from the same extraordinarily dull and prolonged start (that took almost half the book to get going) as Peacemaker did. Rather within 50-70 pages the story manages to find it legs and begin jogging forwards gaining momentum towards a rather gripping tail end that has you glued to the pages to find out how things will unravel. The ending is good winding up the subplots for the most part and leaving open plenty of room to continue the larger story arc without tr Top Hook thankfully does not suffer from the same extraordinarily dull and prolonged start (that took almost half the book to get going) as Peacemaker did.

The ending is good winding up the subplots for the most part and leaving open plenty of room to continue the larger story arc without trimming this books plot short and abruptly as some books suffer from. My only complaint is that I would have liked to see more of what happened to Ray Suter after his large part in the prior book and the first half of this one it was a bit of a shame that he seemed to fade away after the development in his subplot. Especially considering the detail that went into various other parts of the story. I was about ready to give up on the author after the stumbling mess that Peacemaker was but Top Hook now has me interested in seeing what happens in the next installment.

    Ok. A man's book. Why? Long periods spent describing mechanics of aircraft, naval carrier operations and codeboards as discussed between 'inner circles' and outsiders. Double agent naval warfare dilemma, softened with deliberate character damage to equally qualified naval high-flier wife. Well obser ed human chacteristics and basic storyline. However by half way I was happy, felt i missed nothing, by skipping some of the technical information. Ok. A man's book. Why?

    Parts of this book were interesting, but I found most of this book rather long and dull. Rose, is in the begining and part of the reason for the story, but she gets lost as a charater in the plot when her husband, Alan, more or less takes over the story. People who may enjoy this book more are those that have some knowledge of aircraft and can remember what abbreviations such as RIO, CAG, LSO,CNO etc. And yes, there is a follow up to this book, do I want to read it? I don't think so. Parts of this book were interesting, but I found most of this book rather long and dull.

    Great story... Rated "R" for language. Minimal violence. Actually suggested we pull it from our school's library. If you want to read through the "R" for the story... consider yourself warned, but enjoy the skies. Great story... Rated "R" for language. Minimal violence.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. A little slow starting but lots of action and adventure as I got further into it. Would highly recommend.
