From Publishers Weekly

The U.S. is still recovering from the American Holocaust, a Russian air strike that killed and wounded thousands in 2004, at the start of this clunky techno-thriller from bestseller Brown (Strike Force). In 2009, Lieutenant General McLanahan, commander of the High Technology Aerospace Weapons Center, fears the Russians are covertly arming Iran, now known as the Democratic Republic of Persia. An immoral and weak U.S. president, Joseph Gardner, doesn't help the situation. Full of technical prose (Skybolt was powered by a MHDG, or magnetohydrodynamic generator, which used two small nuclear reactors to rapidly shoot a slug of molten metal back and forth through a magnetic field to produce the enormous amount of power required by the laser) and broadly drawn characters, from Gardner, who can't keep his pants on even during a global crisis, to Senate majority leader Stacy Anne Barbeau, who wields her cleavage in the interests of her constituents as well as national security, this novel will appeal to readers who care more about advanced weaponry than a plausible plot.

Praise for Dale Brown: 'Clancy's got serious company.' New York Daily News 'When a former pilot with years of experience turns his hand to writing thrillers you can take their authenticity for granted. His writing is exceptional and the dialogue, plots and characters are first-class...far too good to be missed.' Sunday Mirror 'Brown puts us into the cockpits of wonderful machines and gives us quite a ride. His flying sequences are terrific...authentic and gripping.' New York Times Book Review 'The best military adventure writer in the country.' Clive Cussler

2.0 von 5 Sternen Dale Brown is only a Shadow of himself.. 2. November 2009
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dale Brown wrote excellent aviation books - in the past. But unfortunatelly it seems that he has no further ideas. This book is boring with a minimum of action and is full of boring political discussions. This book is a Shadow of the former excellent writer Dale Brown.

Was soll ich sagen, 5 von 5 Sternen.
Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert so wie alle Bücher dieser Reihe. Mit jedem neuen Band steigert sich die Spannung noch. Dale Brown ist der Meister seines Genre.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Shadow Command Review: 28. Juni 2008
Von Evo Dude - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm glad I didn't read the other reviews before I read this. I have to agree there is some cheesy sex parts in it that could have been left out. I'm not a prude or anything it just doesn't go so well with the flow of the book.

Other than that I did like it pretty well though. I like to use these kind of books as a bit of an escape from reality. On that front it does deliver big time. One person said that he hopes the officers in the military aren't like McLanahan. Personal opinion if we had stuff like is in the book and an officer like him in real life the conflict in Iran would have been solved a long time ago.

It is a bit over the top but still a good read if you are a fan of his writing. Maybe wait for it in paperback, but I don't regret the hard bound copy either.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Where's the action? 30. Mai 2008
Von odyssey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Silly characters aside, you can always count on Dale Brown to put you in the cockpit. Until now. Gone are intense and lengthy action sequences of flight. Instead we receive mundane politics set in a predictable mideast upheaval. I can't wait for his next novel. He must be rested and ready to get us all back into flightworthy action. There wasn't any here.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Dale Brown, forever inconsistent, strikes out on this sequel 30. Mai 2008
Von Jerry Saperstein - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dale Brown is remarkably inconsistent: I prefaced my review of "Strike Force", the predecessor to "Shadow Command", with similar words and went on to give it a glowing review.

This time out, "Shadow Command" picks up where the earlier novel left off - and immediately falls flat on its face. Characters that we've grown familiar with, like General Patrick McLanahan, are now totally in orbit. Literally. The gadgetry and science and flying, always a part of Brown's novels are still there, but this time the descriptions are stretched beyond even science fiction.

The other characters are simply not believable. There's Captain Hunter "Boomer" Noble who is virtually a cartoon. Ace pilot, engineer, womanizer and never, ever makes a mistake. Navy Lt. Commander Lisette "Frenchy" Moulain is worse than a parody. She's the nominal commander of the fictional Spacebird. Brown has long had dueling instincts. He tries to integrate women into military and scientific roles in his novels - while, at the same time, making them sex objects. This time, the combination is disastrous in an utterly gratuitous, ridiculous sex scene early in the book. It is, unfortunately, only one of several throughout the book.

The other characters are no better. A scheming American-educated Russian President, Leonid Zevitin, belongs in a Marx Brothers movie along with the feckless American President, Joseph Gardner. Just about every character in this novel seems well suited to wearing a red clown nose and wig.

The plot grows both confusing and wearisome within the first hundred pages. There are others who may read "Shadow Command" and enjoy it: I don't want to ruin it for them, so I won't get into a lot of detail.

The Iranian revolution that began in "Strike Force" continues, with Russia and America influencing and being influence by events. Russian President Zevitin cunningly exploits American President Gardner - and guess who saves the day - but only after being (once again) unfairly treated.

"Strike Force" was good adventure. "Shadow Command", in my opinion, is not.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Just read the MiG engagement scene, then stop! 20. Juli 2008
Von California Customer1 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There is one great flight scene, where we (the good guys) engage two MiG fighters. It is a terrific scene, early in the book; after that, just put the book down. What follows are absurd - and unnecessary - numbers of double entendres and sexual innuendo; trysts galore; a fairly weak plot; & little character development. Who wrote this? Is simply can't be the man who wrote "Day Of The Cheetah," because the character development, plot, writing, and flight scenes are superb. I've read all of Dale Brown's books, and I was very disappointed with this one.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not physically possible 5. September 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I had to give up after the first chapter because of numerous violations of the laws of Physics. I love to read science fiction but it has to be plausible at some level. This book has no grounding in reality and therefore no believability.
