Chasing the Lion A. J. Tata
Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin Press for the advanced ARC for my honest review.Did like it although, there were some parts during my read that I found it unbelievable or plausible at times but the writing, escaping into the pages, the fast pace, mix in the tension, the suspense, the overload of action, good versus evil, builds to a great conclusion and glad that I read this one.
With ‘Chasing the Lion’, you get a multi-layered storyline, the author A.J. Tata kept them all straight but check reality at the door Right away you will notice how Tata has brought vast knowledge and personal experience he has into this book. As a retired General he knows better than most the inside workings of combat and military strategy and that brings this story a level of realism in the details that will keep readers engrossed from the start. To give you a bit of background on the main character. Lieutenant General Garrett Sinclair is the United States Army’s top special forces commander. He is unique in that he participates in operations with his personal Joint Special Operations Command team, a team that he put together with the best of the best. Iran remains high on his list of enemies to the United States, whose leadership remain a constant threat. This is beyond well written and very detailed I just had a hard time connecting with it so I can’t give it more than three stars. The pacing is spot on.
