Book review: Executive Intent

Executive Intent is a techno-thriller in the Patrick McLanahan series by Dale Brown. America is deploying a new space weapon and China and Russia are taking steps to pressure an American President (who is trying to get re-elected and at odds with the Vice-President) to dismantle the project.

Having not read other books in the series, there were parts that were a little tricky to understand or follow, but the general back story was given at appropriate points. The book covers both military action taken by the sides and the politics at play and interweaves them well. The action is described in good detail and at an excellent pace. Although it is probably best to have read the other books in the series first, it is still very readable as a one-off read for those who enjoy a mixture of action and politics in their action thrillers.
