    Without Reserve can best be described as a heart pounding page turner The non stop action and relatable main character make for a hard to put down book From the moment it began I was thoroughly engaged in the story Without Reserve is the story of an Army Reservist who is called up after the events of 9 11 for a mission in Singapore Even though I don t know much about the military I enjoyed the book But when I found out that it was based on actual events, I was stunned It s one thing to have a novel full of action and nerve wracking events but to discover if could be true puts this story at a whole new level What a fascinating snapshot into the life of a true American hero Can t wait to read another Howery novel.

    The author is a USAR officer in Military Intelligence and gave an overview talk at my local library recently on the wars of the last 10 15 years in Afghanistan The book is a first novel, and as such perhaps a little rough around the edges but I wish I could do half as good a job It is set in Singapore, not Afghanistan, and revolves around Asian Islamic terrorists It has lots of action, suspense, and moderate gratuitous sex There are also a variety of insights into the real war on terror in Southeast Asia.

    I bought this book after hearing Howery speak about the situation in Afghanistan His novel is based on the same first hand experience that has made him an expert on the region What I appreciate most about it is the realism that surfaces throughout The plot is full of the usual spycraft and military action one expects from the genre Along the way, he make his point about the importance of continued vigilance on terrorism and of working with other nations.
