Book Review – Silver Tower – Dale Brown

As Russia looks to invade the middle east, the ultimate weapon for the opposing American forces isn’t on the battlefield, it orbits many miles high above it. A space station with a powerful radar, but is it enough to stop Russia winning the war?

With the grand scope of the action, the book feels more like a Larry Bond than a Dale Brown. The plot builds slowly but the final third moves along rapidly. The main characters are fleshed out enough for the story but no more, almost to the point where the reader doesn’t care enough about the story lines involving them.

Its pretty obvious that the plot has been lifted from Ronald Reagan’s ‘Star Wars’ idea of the 80s. Its work successfully as one of the main areas of the story, albeit with perhaps too much terminology at times.

A good book, perhaps not of of Dale Browns best but certainly enjoyable!
