When Navy SEAL Mack Bedford's fellow officers are brutally killed by Iraqi insurgents using a cruel, new anti-tank Diamondhead missile, Mack avenges their murders by gunning down the then-unarmed attackers, ultimately getting himself court-martialed and kicked out of the Navy in the process. To make matters worse, Mack then learns that the Diamondhead missiles were sold illegally by French industrialist and infamous politician Henri Foche. Mack suspects that Foche will succeed in his campaign to become the next French President, and fears that his election will result in the cancellation of all navy-ship purchases from the United States, and in doing so, will also protect French interests in the Diamondhead. The results are doom for Mack's hometown shipbuilding yard and the spread of international terrorism.

After the first 20 percent of this novel the following 80 percent is some of the very best action I have come across. Stick with this story and you will be thrilled if you enjoy good suspense. Only because the story could have done without the drawn out beginning, 9 of 10 stars
