3. Ghost Fleet: The Whole Goddamned Thing by Donny Cates
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was wild. A pure action-filled piece involving big rigs, government conspiracies and rural Texans. The story hits the ground and keeps running which is great for those looking for action, blood and violence, but when it comes to plot there are gaping holes. An intricate secret government series of organizations are involved in trying to stop what could be the end of the world. The story is left behind as the action takes over and character development is tossed to the wind. I really had no feelings either way for any of the characters. An afterword explains how this book started off as a 12-issue series and was cut down to 8 mid-run. This gives us the answer as to why the story is lacking in cohesion.
