This is beautiful country, Art Rios said as he turned up the lane leading to the compound. He stopped at the sign warning all unauthorized vehicles to turn back. An extremely sharp soldier wearing. camouflaged battle dress appeared and asked Rios for his identification. He glanced in the backseat. Without asking for Durant’s identification, he spoke into his radio, describing the occupants of the car. He stood back and waved them through.

Absorbing, authorative and compelling. Authenticity was always a keynote. Multiple plots well interwoven and progressively revealed. I started this book with no expectations and found a new peer for Clancy, Brown et al. I could not put it down; now to find his next.

Published by Thriftbooks. I enjoyed the book very much. It is very interesting and although it was difficult to keep some of the characters straight, because of the many sub-plots, I never wanted to put it down. His characters are likeable and his plots intriguing. I'm looking forward to reading more of his books. He gets better with each book. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 20 years ago.

Against All Enemies - Richard Herman. Now the three solid citizens, the pillars of their community, were crouched behind the pile of law books, documents, computer monitors, and briefcases that littered the defense table. Like everything else in his life, Sutherland’s table was clean and neatly arranged with only a legal pad, a pencil, and a thin folder arranged squarely in front of him as he sat alone.

Captain Bradley Jefferson of the . Air Force, who is black and a Muslim, is charged with treason after the failure of an air strike against terrorists in Sudan. But as the prosecuting lawyer discovers, the officer is a scapegoat in a game of high politics involving a demagogue running for president. By the author of Power Curve.

I started wondering about Richard Herman when in an early chapter he had his hero wearing Birkenstock sandals. That was a first and definitely out of character for a Herman hero. However, the protagonist was wearing them with white crew socks, so I inferred that Herman did not go terminally pc and read on and then could hardly put the book down, The author did a first rate job in combining an attack/rescue story that takes place in the Sudan (very bad guys), the operational/political background and all overlaid by a military court room drama. The story takes place in 1999 so it must have been written in the 1980's and it's all authentic. To make things a little more complicated, there is also a rogue advanced computer and a billionaire (possibly modeled on Ross Perot) who compensates for most of the stupidity of the politicians. The CIA comes across as duplicitous and incompetent, but apparently without any consequences.
The story has many twists and turns and I don't want to give it away. Suffice it to say, that it is good reading both for the plot and the author's superior literary ability. I am only sorry that I did not save this for a long flight.
Two days ago, ,I finished reading "Call of Duty", by Richard Herman and I was so captivated by it that I started another of his books - "Against All Enemies." The story line is different but equally compelling and does reintroduce a couple of characters from the other novel. Kamigame (Superman without a cape) makes a cameo appearance, as does Gillespie but the main story covers the events leading up to a military court marshal and the consequences of that event. An interesting cast of characters and a sufficiently convoluted plot makes for another compelling read. Well worth your time.
It seems more authors are going to female character to be the hero of the day. In this story it bounces around as to who the hero will be. It also seems to play on American leadership (presidential office) lack of courage in taking a strong lead in decision making and covers the constant failure of intelligence agencies to play well together to the detriment of the ongoing scenario.
The book was interesting and kept me involved. The biggest drawback was the outrageous number of typos. Every page had at least two typos. It looks like a really bad character recognition program was used to digitalize the book.
I almost gave the book a five star rating, but toward the end I got the feeling that Herman had already moved on to another book and was rushing through to finish this one. Still, the book is well worth reading and at some point I may purchase another of his writings.
Herman tells a hell of a good story, consistently. I wasn't as into this one as I have been into so many others of his. Maybe I was having an off day.

Every one of the books I have read by Richard Herman have been excellent and this is no different. Enjoyed every minute of this book.
As a retired AF and Army Grunt it is great pleasure to find a writer who knows what he is doing when he talks about the Military Heroes who serve with Pride.
