Fire War III is an excellent thriller. Part of the Fire War trilogy, this novel is a political and military thriller set in the near future (the later part of the 21st century). A real page turner, this book is hard to put down. Good action scenes, pacing, and vivid settings, with plenty of tension and conflict, something I, as a avid reader of thrillers, enjoy. You see the action through the eyes of the main character Anthony Jackson, a military man, a spy, and a widower who still grieves over the loss of his wife. The book is also a political thriller, and it raises good questions about liberty, personal security, personal freedoms, and dictatorships – what we sometimes have to give up to obtain something else.
Overall a great read.
