“Tipping Point: The War With China – The First Salvo”

David Poyer

The good news is that this is another Dan Lenson book and Poyer’s protagonist remains believable, imperfect, and introspective; those are all uncommon traits among military thriller genre heroes. The not-so-good news is that “Tipping Point” ends almost randomly. The tortured subtitle hints that this is the beginning of a new story arc. Leaving plot threads open as a setup for future books is fine, but I prefer series books to have an identifiable beginning and end.
