    Navy Commander Dan Lenson returns in typical fashion in Poyer s latest. Lenson s team gets the assignment to retrieve a nuclear missile from Russia, so they arrange to buy it. Of course, plans go awry, the weapon ends up in Iran, and Lenson and his men must destroy it any way they can. Does the miserable failure of every plan they implement mean that there is a traitor in their midst? And will their attempts unintentionally create an international incident? Poyer clearly knows military jargon and the inner workings of black-ops programs, but he can t seem to translate that knowledge into a thrilling page-turner with wide appeal. Lenson remains a solid lead character, but the novel is only for Poyer fans and those who look mainly for military atmosphere in their thrillers. Copyright Booklist Reviews 2008.
