    Not the normal type of novel I am drawn to, but it engaged me from the opening page thru to the end I think I learned about the Politburo and the culture of Russian politics from this novel than I ever thought I could learn At the same time, I was fed so much technical data on space stations, jetplanes, stealth bombers, astronauts etc that I know now enough to not come back as a fighter pilot in my next life OR an astronaut While I am on the subject of my next life, I think I will also come bac [...]

    Astonishingly entertaining Very cinematic A huge page turner Enough twists and turns for twenty novels.I love a thriller that just takes off and flies, and the two that do that best for me are Firefox and Firefox Down both by Craig Thomas I can add Storming Intrepid to the list.A huge cast of characters you will have no trouble keeping straight All delineated in a few brush strokes, but set very firmly in my mind as I read and no cast list in the front of the book, either.A Soviet sleeper agent [...]

    So far, so good It s a Cold War thriller, and is recommended by Stephen Coonts and Tom Clancy Basically, the US is continuing with its SDI initiative remember that and a new fleet of shuttles is key to keeping it going The Soviet Union, newly reorganized after the assassination of Gorbachev, is starting its own SDI, but its shuttles and yeah, they had one in reality looks like ours burn up after two or three launches In desperation, those darn Russkies manage to turn a shuttle pilot and he kills [...]

    A Clancy esque political military thriller, a good fun read The material is a little out dated as it was written and is based in the cold war era of the late 80 s, however it was enjoyable as a great action book The author delves a little much into some of the minutia that feels pointless here and there, the minutia may be interesting, but it often is a short side trip rather than a good integration into the story.Overall, I d rank it right up there with Clancy and recommend it as an entertainin [...]

    I read this book years ago and picked up a discount copy to re read because I remembered liking it It is certainly dated now, considering the plot involving SDI technology While the action is mostly slow until the last third or so of the book and the machinations of the KGB director are a bit hard to believe, it is still a decent spy technothriller novel to read while killing time on a plane or trip.

    I ve seen lots of books described as page turners, but this is the first one I ve read that actually made me want to find out what would happen next The extensive technical information was hopefully reviewed by knowledgeable people and created a sense of realism It is dated, so an informed reader will see deviations from history, but that s not a fault with the book.

    I don t even remember when I read this but I do know I read it at least three times It s not deep, it s not philosophical, it s not earth changing but as techno action, airport fictions go this one was quite a ride I do enjoy my Tom Clancy type novels and Storming Intrepid did not disappoint.

    I enjoyed this techno thriller even though it followed a time tested formula It is a political gaming novel rich with plots and betrayal Still, it is exciting read and has many edge of your seat sections This will satisfy your hunger for thrills.

    I read this ages ago and couldn t remember the title My co worker friend in the USAF recommended it let me borrow his copy Thank goodness for the Internet

    An intriguing story about a highjacked space shuttle Harrison took some liberties with history but this is a good yarn.

    Not very memorable I remember reading the book on a deployment, but nothing very specific about the plot I liked reading about the various aircraft than anything else.
