Review by: Felix Pleșoianu on Dec. 04, 2013 :
So far every book in the David Birkenhead series has been different, and Captain is no exception. Whereas the previous installments in the series justify the military sci-fi label in the end -- however unconventionally -- this time we're treated to a political thriller. Which makes the contrast even more poignant.

Because, you see... in the previous book, the protagonist made some wrong choices that got many people dead for little gain. (Which only made him more realistic, I might add.) But this time there is no right choice -- even the one course of action that secures the future of mankind is morally reprehensible on many levels. Which I guess says something about politics as a human endeavor.

Review by: Paraplegic Racehorse on Aug. 01, 2013 :
I should have reviewed this while the story was still fresh in my mind and I'm doing other potential purchasers a disservice in that. My memory (several months after reading with many books read since) is not enough for an adequate review. Four stars is how I marked it in my e-library database. Presumably, one star knocked from five for needed proofreading.
