"The Shooters" fires blanks! Ad nauseam tough-guy military talk to impress the reader how "in" Griffin is with the forces. 422 pages to tell a 70 page story. This book drags out unimaginatively with dull, meaningless efforts at character formation that just keep the reader mired in repetition. There is no action, supposedly the point of the story, till the end and only about four truncated pages lacking detail or energy. So many trees wasted for this.

731 pages of talking, flying around here & there, a dog relieving himself every so often on the nosewheel of the plane, more talking, giving each other the finger, more talking ........ and 6 pages of action. Well I will certainly keep away from other books in that series, and maybe even keep away from Griffin entirely.

Entertaining, fast-paced. Nothing original from Griffin but he knows how to write second-hand plots with gusto
