    I thought I'd pick it up for the Kindle because it was free I'm not generally a fan of Don Brown his political intrigue isn't always so intriguing but we'll see how it goesUPDATE 725 Here's my review from comI downloaded this book because it was free I figured that at most it would cost me the time that I spent reading it After getting about 23 of the way through I couldn't take it any and I realized my time was valuable than this book This book is awful and I felt like I was reading the script to a made for TV movie The premise of the book is excellent a secret cabal wants to control the shipping lanes between the Indian and Pacific Oceans by taking over the government of Indonesia However the execution is lacking First of all this is an extremely black and white good Christian guys vs bad Muslim guys book and I do mean guys on that later There are no subtle nuances If a character prefers the crescent to the cross he's a bad guy All of the good guys uote Bible verses at some point but the bad guys never reference the ur'an nor do they ever actually practice their religion In fact they only ever mention their religion when they talk about destroying the good guys the typical praise Allah stuff It's almost as if the author thinks Islam is a cult or secret society as opposed to the 2nd largest religion in the world I could live with that if it wasn't for The contrived and utterly ridiculous subplots For example the main character who is a middle aged lawyer in the Navy wants to go on a mission with a Navy SEAL team because he's worried about his girlfriend Wow really? I think I saw that on an episode of JAG 15 years ago Then there's the good girl who saw the bad guys' plans and spends the rest of the book worried for her life Like I said made for TV movie I might be able to live with this if it wasn't for the fact that The characters are all pretty flat The good guys are all macho and Christian and the ladies are all damsels in distress including the one and only female military officer As for the bad guys there's no subtlety involved Having the bad guys club baby seals while making fun of the Special Olympics would be subtle than the lengths this author goes to in making sure that you know the bad guys are bad On top of that the author seems to introduce certain characters just so that he can kill them a few pages after they're introduced For example there's this character who hasn't seen his wife in over a year yet somehow has a three week old son the extra marital implications of which are not examined The reader is just supposed to feel bad that this guy hasn't seen his wife or met his son I don't think the author was implying anything though because the strange timing doesn't even come up and his superior officer actually congratulates him on his new son But it doesn't matter because he dies at the end of the chapter anyway don't worry I didn't spoil anything ; There are a bunch of these characters who show up in the book that only serve as martyrs to make the bad guys appear truly evil and don't actually advance the plot Finally there are parts that are just incredibly inaccurate and it's obvious that the author is using most readers' ignorance to help the plot For example there's an argument between the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense of course one of whom is actually worried about Iran and North Korea launching military strikes from their embassies in Washington DC That's interesting considering neither country has formal diplomatic relations with the US and therefore no embassies in the US Also there's a part where a bad guy proclaims his country as the first Muslim nuclear power and of course promises to wipeout a certain Middle Eastern country even though he had just visited Pakistan a chapter earlier This book is littered with these inaccuracies and this is the main reason why I put the book down I really wanted to like this book because I love political thrillers but this book was so predictable I found myself reading on just to see if I was guessing the next plot twist correctly There was really nothing thrilling about it If you enjoy reading books that are full of sound bites and buzzwords then this is the book for you Otherwise save your money and your time and stay away from this steaming pile

    First thing first I am a muslimah from Malaysia Generally I don't really care about this genre of Islam bashing usually they are being written by someone who never bother to read about the topic but I give it a go since I was bored and I've heard it’s uite a thrillBut I was dead wrong this book is factually ridiculous for a fictionIf you've been in any of the South East Asia country that is mention in this book ALL of portrayals are fiction except the history part Which I guess the writer came up with from reading newspaper and books And he didn't even read up on anything with Islam and have a brainless idea for an extremist Islam terrorist that is not portraying Islam at all Islamic extremist are usually holy people He should changed it into Ku Klux Klan since there's nothing much different after allBut then after I read through Indonesians terrorist parts and fillers and then Bangbangbangbang BOOM and it became ridiculous that I had to skim most parts throughALL the female characters in this book acts as unnecessary filler which should make sense since its a macho men christian military heavy themed action book but there's a limit to how ridiculous it can be in this bookPlus people don't say he look Malaysian Malaysia is a multi racial country There's Malay Chinese Indian Eurasian some Malaccan people are from Portuguese descent with Christian names Sabahan Sarawakian and others It’s usually Malay Malaysian or Chinese Malaysian Names for Malaysian are virtually endless and all Don come up with was Indonesian like names ShameIf anyone has been in Malaysia should know to find a real native of Malaccan Malaysian with Indonesian name is rare unless they came from Kampung Jawa in Malacca Most of Malay in Malaysia uses Arabic names because by law ALL of them are IslamAnd I had to Google the word Un hum del Allah just to know what the word mean and found it mean nothing but gibberish with the word Allah and defined as Praise to God in Arabic which obviously made the writer didn't even read or wiki ed anything about IslamReal Islamic extremist is scary Their motives are usually selfish even when they think they are not their followers are usually gullible and brainwashed and most are unafraid on harming everyone even their own woman and children They adored anything from middle east and always cite a twisted version Al uran verses as their motives since islam extremist are generally religion obsessed like any other psycho and hated anything and EVERYTHING related to the west and most importantly they won’t ever drink wine Wine is ridiculously expensive in SEA and rare and even putting the scenes of terrorist drinking wine is already ridiculous This book is very predictable and for a fiction it lack imagination in some areas like characterization prose and wordings but totally imaginative in geographical and factual areas It’s like Twilight Only it’s not about vampire

    Although I am heavily displeased with the religion bashing I love the fast paced edge of your seat thriller that I am so used to reading

    At 7% into the eBook version I find myself scratching my head wondering which of the 10 characters and almost as many view points is the main characters I haven't connected with any of them and nothing in the story gripped my attention enough to propel me forward I strongly dislike books that are scattered and jump around too much in the beginning After a Prologue Chapter 1 and part way through Chapter 2 I should be connecting with some character and it should be than clear who is the main character So besides being character confused I also found the writing style to be a bit redundant at times For example in the Prologue one character says whose common mindset is the same as ours If someone is of a common mindset doesn't that mean they think like the speaker? In Chapter 1 there is a scene with a hotel clerk and a doctor I was completely confused to what that scene had to do with the story It introduced two new characters and didn't seem to have anything to do with the events people or places previously introduced I'm sure there was some purpose but it seemed disconnected from the other scenes and didn't give me the element of suspense that I was looking for Perhaps it would have served better as a flashback or reflection elsewhere? Or perhaps relayed through dialog with the main character? Unfortunately I won't be reading further as I'm not captured by the hook

    couldn't Finish this book too religiously motivated and as a previous poster has said a lot of it is just plopped in there was there a uota to be met as to how often characters found strength in Jesus? and although the Christian aspect doesn't go as far as propaganda the blatant anti IslamMuslim was absolutely not palatable obviously with terrorism ostensibly the Muslim community's manifesto each and every one of them evidently the Muslims are perfect villains and perfect foils to the god lovin' amuricans but each and every generalization was used liberally to the point of being ridiculous I gave it two stars even without finishing the book because it COULD have been a great yarn had the racism not put me completely off wish the Christian element had been mentioned in the overview of the book even though it was free had I known that I wouldn't have bothered I like my political intrigue with violence clever dialogue sex and nifty weapons not lots of prayerover there were lots of gimme a break moments in this don't want to spoil but having read the tall dark and dangerous series ahem I know enough about navy seals to know they don't let middle aged lawyers participate in missions just so they can keep an eye on their woman eta changed to one star wish it could reflect negative star

  7. Cheyanne Welch Cheyanne Welch says:

    I feel a bit bad saying this because this book was given to me as a gift but it should be taken out of print Not only is the writing poor but the story is stereotypical and racist It's the white American Christians saving the world from the brown Malaysian Muslims and the author obviously did no research into what actual Muslims believe His 'devout' Muslim characters are all drinking alcohol and associating with unrelated people of the opposite gender in private situations two examples that are both against core Muslim beliefs Beyond his atrocious treatment of Muslim culture religion and characters his romance is cheesy his plot is slow and boring and he throws God into the mix at the weirdest times I'm not against literature that incorporates spirituality believe me I write and include spirituality in my own plots and characters but it still needs to be well done This book is a prime example of why religious publishers and authors need to reach outside of their churches and their ethnocentric worldviews for feedback literally anyone with a drop of education could have told them how terrible this book is

  8. tom tom says:

    I enjoyed the book especially because it deals with real life terrorism It did become predictable about half way through A twist in the story would have been good so it wouldn't have been such an obvious ending

  9. slsnowflake slsnowflake says:

    I enjoyed the book a lot and learned a lot about that part of our world I loved the fact that I could read this book and not have the foul language typical of so many I liked that Christianity could be part of the book possibly played up a little too much The romantic parts between Zach and Chris seemed to be thrown in at the oddest places for example in the helicopter on a Navy Seal mission and she's thinking how good looking he is?? SPOILER ALERT And the wedding proposal at the end in front of the President was just too much for me too over the top

  10. Terri Schmidt Terri Schmidt says:

    I really wish Don Brown would write novels often as I believe I have now read all of them The Malacca Conspiracy was yet another edge of your seat military thriller with Zach Brown and Diane Colcernian playing smaller yet still important roles It involved threats of nuclear war Indonesia the United States as well as a few other countries in scenarios that really weren't farfetched at all An excellent gripping read
