Sequel to Ghost , Kildar and Choosers of the Slain .
Michael Harmon has been there and done that. Rescued co-eds, killed major terrorists, stopped nuclear assaults. Now he'd just like to kick back and relax with his harem of lovelies. Unfortunately, the world keeps turning. Mike and the Keldara are back tracking down terrorists, rogue Russian bio-scientists and the doomsday weapon to end all doomsday weapons. It's going to take some very tough, hard and nasty people to stop the end of the world. Fortunately, there's Mike Harmon. The Hero of Ghost , Kildar and Choosers of the Slain , along with his company of elite mountain fighters, is sent on a mission to stop an advanced smallpox plague from being turned over to terrorists. But that will only be the beginning as the Kildar and his Keldara rush to stop a host of WMD attacks, coordinated to take out the very heartland of terrorism's enemies. It's a battle for culture, and this time the terrorists aren't aiming at just one building. . . .

get a life, it's "SF"

Incredibly bad! Even though it appears that Ringo "outlined" this book 6 of the Paladin (Kildar) Series and it was fleshed out by the co-author, it clearly bares Ringo's personal stamp - and he claims top billing as THE author. Not only does he have viewpoints that are extremely Far Right (*) but that are just plain wrong when viewed from the "step back and look at the whole picture REALITIES of things! (BTW, do a Wiki of David Drake, another military sci-fi author, to see how "outlining" works and how Drake - and other top authors - do get paid for their outline, but never claim co-author status!). I have recently realized that he the only books of his that I have actually enjoyed have been those co-authored by other (true) authors - like David Drake, David Weber, etc. The few authored solely by Ringo have been atrocious (see this Paladin / Kildar series in its entirety for my point). (*) Also I find it so interesting that Ringo is Far Right Wing Conservative ONLY in those areas that he personally favors while being EXTREMELY non Conservative - at least I hope that real Conservatives don't believe in his perversions as shown in his personally written books - in his personal beliefs that are truly perverse as shown in those books.

Again, for striking examples, see his Paladin series (Kildar series) of books that start with Ghost. Also, so reader KNOWS that these are his beliefs, check him out under Wiki and look up his Works and find the Paladin Series and see what his publisher says about why Ringo wrote that series.

The series itself? Politically biased to the point of psychotic paranoia (and incorrect factually in almost every instance). Highly racist. Filled with not just sex (I Amanda adult and have no problem with consensual adult sex), but constant examples of perverted sex (just as one example from book 3 of series, where "Kildar" gets an erection when a nude 12-yr old girl - a child - is forced to sit on his lap while he is negotiating buying her from a couple sex slave traders and he becomes aroused at thinking of the rape and abuse that she was put through -- as that is the way HIS feelings are!

Additionally he is not only completely anti Muslim (occasionally refers to "Islamic terrorists" but too often slips and just refers to "Islamics" when talking about the bad guys and constantly refers to them as "black-asses" - apparently in the belief that all Islamics are very dark skinned and Mideasten types, disregarding fact that many Chechens, for example, have blue eyes, green eyes, light brown hair, red hair; and the multitude of non brown or black Asian "Islamics"), but also speaks despairingly of "fundamentalist Christians" and rich people (I.e., "the politicians and those rich bastards" - who caused such and such problem)! Apparently in his political adolescent naiveness does NOT realize that fundamentalists and the wealthy ARE the Core Base of both the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party! In the first five books of this series (written well prior to 2008 and generally just a few months apart in 2005 / 2006) in those first five books of series, he simply loves everything American military and President Bush (President Cliff in his series) and hates everything liberal (or that he simply labels as being liberal and paints ALL in such a category as being that way with a very prejudiced brush!) - especially Senator Clinton (Senator Walker [??] in his books, other than his January 2013 book 6 of the series which he outlined for a co-author... while then claiming top billing!), the Senator Clinton that he repeatedly references as being THE Dem presidential candidate in the next election (first 5 books written well before 2008, so Obama getting nomination must have truly shocked him - and Obama winning must have totally infuriated him)!!!
