(Kindle Unlimited - Mar 2019.) Deception is the name of the game, but overall I'll have to say I was terribly disappointed with this sequel. Mr Forbes is a better writer than is on view in this novel where there appears to have been a deliberate effort to pad out the story-line/book length (to write/sell more books???) by overdoing the fighting against the trifes on board the 'Deliverance'. There was to me an excessive use of repetitious marine corp military formalities of saluting, of attention-shuns, etc, etc, etc, etc. I'd recommend this book for those who want to see how the story develops and/or for those who enjoy excessively repeated close quarters fighting. I'll be using Kindle Unlimited to check out Book 3, though, and hoping I'm not doing that in 'desperation'!
