The focus on our latest Tom Clancy Op-Center book, Scorched Earth, is Iraq and specifically Mosul. When we began writing the book in 2015 we anticipated a long-drawn-out battle for Mosul and that is where, in December 2016, the battle still rages. And most experts predict the battle for Mosul if far from over.
We’re pleased that Tom Clancy Op-Center: Scorched Earth continues to receive positive reviews. Here is what the latest reviewer had to say:
When George Galdorisi took on Tom Clancy’s series we didn’t know what to expect; could he fill the giant shoes left with Clancy’s passing. In Out of the Ashes he answered that question with a flourish. Now, with Scorched Earth, Galdorisi continues to amaze. He has pulled a page from today’s headlines making Scorched Earth relevant with your morning coffee. This next installment of the Op-Center series takes us back into the envelope of potential world conflagration.
The novel starts off with an unexpected and gritty assassination, throwing us into the action from the get-go. The situation unstoppably escalates to the point where the Op-Center needs to get involved. Chase Williams and his somewhat incorrigible cast of characters jump into the fray feet first. The action is fast and furious and takes very few prisoners. Just when you think there’s resolution, another wrench is thrown into the machinery taking the situation in a new direction. New characters, both good and bad, are added with the great character development that Galdorisi has come to be known for.
Scorched Earth twists and turns, leaving the reader with resolution, but at the same time, open to something new. It’s a “page-turner” taking you from the politically incorrect environs of DC to IED laden byways a half a world away. Even though it seems the terrorist are going to have a field day with this one, the Op-Center geeks and operators get into action keeping you guessing. Galdorisi’s novel is an enjoyable and satisfying read, introducing new characters and concepts for future development. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
