"In the near future, the U.S. has deployed the Remote Infantry Corps: thousands of robots remote-piloted by soldiers whose bodies lie hidden in underground bases. But the worst occurs when anarchists set off a global pulse that shorts out electrical connections. In Damascus, Private Danny Kelso, Corporal Kate Wade, and their platoon realize they are trapped inside the Tin Men--something the government never warned them could happen. In Athens, the G20 Summit comes under fire, and a band of security soldiers and advisors risk everything in an effort to shepherd the President to safety. As chaos descends, and with anarchist Bot Killers on their trail, the Tin Men must survive a gauntlet of violence on the road from Damascus to the heart of Europe, half of them determined to stay true to their mission and save their president, half of them hellbent to save themselves.."--

It was so refreshing to read a Science Fiction book that REALLY WAS Science and Fiction! I appreciated the concept, the twists and the realness of the premise. I would give this book 5 stars and, the highest praise, read something else by this author.

I must admit this is not my usual genre but the premise sounded when I saw this book in my recommendations and I decided to give it a try. I thought it was an okay book with some very interesting twists in the plot along with some very cheesy clich├ęs. It was fun to read about advanced technology, though, and the author treats the subject well without going overboard with scientific explanations

Your classic flat-footed american men save the [sadly ungrateful] world from itself fantasy. Without a shred of redeeming style or any originality. John Wayne would instantly recognize it.
So why did i borrow the book?
I was ridiculously encouraged by my great pleasure in another military scifi series by Joel Shepherd [Killswitch etc.] recently.
Oh well, if i can save you from this novel, it was worth it.
