I hate this book I normally have zero problems with wish fulfillment spy fiction I also if I don t like a book just refuse to review it Basically if I m not going to give something 3 and a 12 stars then there s not much point in me taking time to type out a response The exception is if I really really hate something and feel the need to say why So if you liked the book good for you but I need to state why I threw this one against the wallWARNING Talks about Sexual Assault Rape and PedophiliaMichael Harmon is a piece of crap At one point he describes himself as especially angry at rapists because he wants to rape women but doesn t so he hates the people who give into the urge At that point really does anything else need to be said about the guy Yes apparently because he does eventually rape a woman in the book s third act However he justifies that as he bought her from her sex traffickers and set her freeOkayDo I have to go onYeah yeah I doThe book is divided into three storiesMichael Harmon is an ex Navy Seal who has gone back to college and then gets involved in beautiful Georgia U coeds all explictly white getting kidnapped by Al aeda terrorists so they can be executed on camera Michael Harmon follows them back to Syria and kills Osama Bin Ladin still alive at the time as well as the President of Syria The latter seemed strange but the 1 star in this book before I removed it for ACT III is the fact Ringo was prescient that he was a piece of crap too This is as close to an actual plot as the book may be and it s insane enough you almost overlook the worst elements Even when a bunch of naked women in bullet belts start shooting up the place as Michael inspires them to fight terrorists His price 1 Don t let this incident turn them off men 2 Give him a blowjob if he ever asks including in publicYou know honestly that s deranged enough to almost be entertainingThe second story has him get two women half his age to come to his private yacht for some BDSM but it s okay as he gets their mothers permission first I am not kidding Then he has to leave mid sex session to stop terrorists from acuiring a nuclear bombRidiculous enough to not take seriously and the telephone conversation is hilariousThe third one is about raping the preteen girl he s bought as a slaveYeahNoScrew the story even as ultra right conservative wish fulfillment My ultra right acuaintances don t have any desires that wayBleahRemove all stars It was one and a half anyway010EditI found this afterward and it summarizes my opinion even better

If there s one moment that sums up the entirety of Ghost it s when our hero kills Osama Bin Laden and cuts off his head for proof Rather than being the cathartic finale of the novel this is instead almost an aside to the main plot which is the rescue of an entire army of kidnapped college girls This minor plot element is an indicator of just what you re getting into with this novel Anyway Ghost tells the story of Mike an ex Navy Seal who has the remarkable talent to fall over both nubile young women and terrorists as he travels the world Mike is both the novel s main character and basically its only character with everyone else being either an interchangeable sex object or some variant on clich US military one notes This is a shame for many reasons most of which are due to just how spectacularly unlikable Mike manages to be throughout this Mike is supposed to be dark a personal malaise that mostly manifests in a mix of an inexplicably inability to treat women as anything other than as sex objects and his love of rough violent sex Dark would imply some desire to change or self loathing two things that Mike isn t interested is or seemingly capable of Rather Mike s darkness is basically an excuse of a character trait that allows him to act like a jerk while seemingly characterful In short Mike isn t dark he s a violent sexual predator with a good reputation who freuently demonstrates such a stunning lack of basic empathy that it s hard not to think of him as suffering from a borderline psychological problem Still Mike s darkness is only one of his defining character traits Mike s other defining trait is his astonishing breadth of knowledge Mike is something of a know it all If you re at all familiar with Ringo s novels in particular The Last Centurion you ll know he has a weakness for this sort of central character trait and like a few of his other characters Mike manages to make a hash of this In brief while Mike often betrays a wide breadth of knowledge and insight it s often wrong in real world context So in short Mike s a poor main character matching with rest of this dreadful novel So let s get into the basics of this novel Ghost is actually three linked novellas each revolving around one of the Mike s encounters with islamic terrorists This should be your first warning sign Mike s so one dimensional that he really can t carry a longer narrative Kildar the seuel demonstrates this in spectacular style and the novel really doesn t try instead hurling him into a trio of paper thin plots that read like the porn movie synopsises than heroic narratives This is the point where the spoilers begin If you still plan to read this after everything I ve said go for itview spoiler So plot one begins with Mike having taken a medical discharge from the Seals and headed of to college to further his education The immediate uestion here is why Mike opens the book with an extend rant about the iniuities of the college system decrying the clueless liberals there who know nothing about the world around them specifically Mike that is familiar with the Middle East than the professors trying to teach him So basically Mike s opening is that he knows about the world than those people who make a living studying it This d be an interesting character trait if it was true and if his justification wasn t simply that he s been there for combat The idea that somehow this makes Mike an expert is a little laughable on the face of it and even so given how nakedly anti intellectual Mike is about all this His naked superiority and smug egotism is ridiculous in the extreme Of course Mike being something of a sociopath he is of course out stalking one of his classmates Again unsurprisingly he is doing this for their own good What Oh okay let s try and follow Mike s logic here He discovered that a number of the girls at his college have a habit of walking alone at night which puts them at risk of attack by some psycho Mike s solution to this Stalk them himself so that he can blow off some steam with his fantasies of what he would do if he were to grab them Yeah that doesn t sound like how a serial killer gets started not at all Still this is useful as it means he witnesses his latest cause being snatched from the roadside Giving chase he finds a group of terrorists who are weirdly drugging this girl and sticking her in a box to go with the other girls in boxes they already have So he kills them This immediately brings up one of the book s weirdest elements the scenes from the terrorists perspectives Basically every time Mike confronts a bad guy in a one on one situation we get a uick sketch of these mooks motivations and history Then Mike kills them There s really no explainable reason for this that I can think of There s little or no character to these short thre to four paragraph long moments Is Ringo mourning their mistaken philosophies their wasted lives Is it some attempt to give a sense of three dimensionality to the world These theories might make sense if the book was at any point thoughtful but it s soft core notion of the War on Terror put that aside The only explanation I can imagine for these bits is that Ringo needed to pad out the word count So Mike rescues the girl from the bad guy We all know what comes now A romantic lead A brave ally No you forget that this is Mike and he s dark So instead he has to bite down on the urge to assault her and instead begs her not to tell the cops who he is because he s afraid he ll be tried for murder I love the logic here Can anyone imagine a prosecutor actually taking this to trial yes I d like you to convict this man for the murder of the terrorists trying to kidnap these innocent college girls It boggles the mind that this is even this guy s concern The reasoning seems to be that liberal prosecutors object to terrorists being killed so they d try this Which makes sense Still Mike uncovers some evidence that the terrorists were planning to take the boxes to a plane that s about to take off so he hurries off and hitches a lift on a plane about to take off from a Florida airport bound for Syria He ends up hiding in its wheelhouse hitching a lift across the Atlantic Arriving in Syria he ends up at a chemical weapon factory that s been turned into a rape factory Yeah you read that right rape factory The terrorists plan is to kidnap one hundred American girls gang rape them to death one at a time and stream this live on the internet with all of the victims of course stripped naked and tied up to watch I ll be nice this is simply the most bizarrely weird terrorist plot I ve ever heard of in fiction or reality It s so mind destroyingly ridiculous that any vague hope I had that this was a serious novel died of shock Look I get that terrorist plots are inherently logic less but this is simply moronic It also illustrates one of the worst problems with this novel John Ringo really has no comprehension of the Middle East or the complex interplay of forces within Here s a fun learning experience look up Bashar al Assad you know the despot of Syria and Osama bin Laden One thing you ll uickly find is that al Assad is a Shia muslim while bin Laden is a Sunni Those of you who ve paid attention to what happened in Ira than Ringo will know that Sunnis and Shias do not get on This is especially true of the Sunni perversion that is Al aeda you know the group led by Osama bin Laden who hate Shia Islam with a passion So the idea that the two of them would co operate on anything like this is absurd Congratulations you now know about the Middle East than John Ringo So this is about the point where bin Laden gets killed After killing all the observers because of course both al Assad and bin Laden are watching the rape factory Mike goes to rescue the girls Of course he can t get through this without being his usual stunningly empathetic self His reuest to the girl who was being raped when he rescued her Please don t become a lesbian because of this No concern for her no recognition that she d probably like to not talk about sex just the narcissistic desire to sleep with her one day There are deliberately written Mary Sues who have empathy than this sociopath So anyway Mike recruits three of the girls to help him fight off the understandably upset Syrian soldiers trying to get into the rape factory Because Mike literally cannot communicate with a woman without putting her down he names the trio Bambi Thumper and Flower because Mike can t be bothered to remember their names This is all kinds of ugly when you stop and think about it Mike s literally dehumanizing and recreating three almost rape victims for no other reason than his own laziness So after a barely memorable firefight Mike and the girls get rescued by the troops sent in by the US President a thinly veiled expy of President George Bush Before that possibly the most believable part of the plot happens Mike gets shot While it only redeems the book in a unhealthily cathartic way it s still nice to see some sense of realism to this Mike isn t one of those characters that can waltz through a battle without anything happening to him It s just a shame what happens next So anyway we find in the epilogue that Mike s role in the whole affair has been hidden but he s been given the reward for killing bin Laden He s been treated for his injuries and eventually finds his way back to his college where he meets up with the girls he rescues And sleeps with almost all of them This is described as a sort of therapeutic thing with some of the girls involved wanting just have someone to hold A lot however just sleep with him In short Mike ends his first adventure with a few new scars a couple of million dollars and women than Bond ever got Talk about wish fulfilment So there we are at the end of of the first part of this less than stellar book probably the most individually memorable part of the novel but not for any particularly good reason The actual meat of the story the action is forgettably bland The main character s sole memorable feature is his borderline sociopathy There s a rampant barrage of disturbing sexual content The plot s moronic It gets worse Next up we have the relative high point of this novel part two Mike now a millionaire has properly retired buying a boat and puttering around on the florida keys There he meets two college girls who are both down for the holidays takes them off in his boat and teaches them about BDSM After a few days of sexual excess Mike finds out he s the closest to another terrorist attack and breaks it up but not before the nuke they re smuggling gets set up Mike barely escapes the blast ending up in hospital again Oh sorry you thought I was going to go into the minutiae of the plot That was the minutiae of the plot Part two of this book is basically an primer for the nature of dominant submissive relationships mixed with some erotica finished off with a crudely welded on seuence pinched from True Lies This third of the book is probably the most tolerable There s consent to sexual shenanigans which is nice and it s the only part of the book which actually manages to be funny there s a suirm inducingly funny phone conversation between one of the girls and her mother where she finds out far too much about her parents love life but it s still not very good Why It s boring Incredibly so Basically you get treated to a long series of sexual escapades between Mike and his two female friends This d be fun if it wasn t for the fact that Mike s still involved Every time he speaks or does something you re reminded that he spent the start of this book stalking women and being a borderline rapist Reading about him getting laid is about as interesting as reading about watching paint dry Still then we get to the bit with the terrorists This a tiny fraction of the narrative and as a result horrifically underdeveloped Basically some terrorists have managed to get a nuke onto one of the islands of the Florida Keys before the US government found out about it yeah basically it s the bit before the bridge scene in True Lies As Mike is so conveniently nearby he s asked to deal with the problem Which he does after another firefight that is frankly forgettable than the one in part one it involves a boat I think Mike gets injured again but this time the terrorists manage to put the nuke on a timer and Mike only just manages to escape ending up with radiation poisoning so it s back to hospital After a while he gets out and goes back to Florida meeting the girls again in the bar where they d first met where they ve apparently been waiting for him So basically part two is an erotica with some terrorist shooting on the side Neither part of the plot are hugely interesting or satisfying with a chunk of the plot feeling like it s been stolen from a far better movie Still it s an improvement on part three Part three of Ghost is where Mike foils a terrorist plot to nuke Paris via a brothel A uick assessment is that it s a european take on The Peacemaker a forgettable George Clooney Nicole Kidman vehicle about nuclear smuggling It s also where any lingering belief you might have in Mike s inherent decency is shot to pieces He also causes a few diplomatic incidents because well he s Mike So anyway we start with Mike in a Russian brothel admiring the underage girls there Yeah really This is not the worst thing he s going to do just as an fyi Still before he can do anything offensive some woman comes up to him and knowing that he s rich asks if he wants to buy a nuke Ah Mike The character who can fall over the plot while searching for tail You ll note that this is the third time this book s relied on him being in the right place at the right time All three of the plots run on it and well it s kinda dumb It s also bad writing So anyway understandably he says yes He gets taken to the military base where the Russian soldiers who ve stolen it are based only to find that the nuke s already been taken by a bunch of terrorists So not only has Mike managed to find the only brothel that s selling nukes he s also found the only one with a hot line to the local terrorists Anyway Mike contacts his allies back in the US who for some insane reason ask him to start looking for the thing You have to love this There s a missing nuke floating round Europe and Mike gets handed the job of finding it It s not like there s a whole bunch of intelligence agencies whose job this is Mike flies down to Bosnia following a lead which of course leads to a shoot out with some terrorists in a warehouse By now you might be assuming that like almost every fight Mike s gotten into he s going to get shot again Nope this time he manages to get away without a scratch Which is not a good thing Warning this part is where this book gets truly repulsive Mike s response to not getting shot is to get stressed out and want to relieve his tension So he nips over to the brothel nearby and hires a girl He then proceeds to rape his underage prostitute This is not some sort of hyperbole Mike literally beats this girl when she tries to get out of his grip and the narrative makes it clear that she is utterly unaroused when he enters her He enjoys this This is basically the point where this book broke me Mike is a repulsively unlikeable character to start with but one of the things he s clear on at the start of this is that he doesn t like rapists He gets rape he enjoys the fantasy to his shame but he s not a rapist Until he is for what is frankly an embarrassingly tiny and crass reason Look Mike isn t a character he s a ravening ball of godawful primal instincts given permission to do what ever he wants with the knowledge that because he shoots terrorists he can do whatever he likes He s an adolescent fantasy without any functional grasp of human morality attached So the rest of the plot for what good it ll do Mike uses the information gained in the warehouse to track the nuke to Paris where it s found in a van outside a stadium where the Pope is about to hold a rally by the way if you would be at all surprised to find that the French government s response is cowardly and inept I think you ve missed most of this book The bomb s rigged to a remote so Mike tootles off to Amsterdam to find the controller who despite being an islamic fundamentalist he finds in a strip club Mike tortures him a bit and takes the controller Mike being awesome figures out that the terrorist lied to him during torture making the torture pointless which is kind of awesome if this had been a parody and using their shared love of a specific piece of music works out which of the two controls disarms the nuke saving Paris Mike returns to his hotel to find the prostitute he raped that he subseuently bought from her pimp and dragged with him has hooked up with a sugar daddy and is set for life Which makes his rape good Yeah let s go with that Good Mike then wanders off in search of sex As for the diplomatic incidents he gets banned from the Netherlands for torture and Paris for turning the nuke off on a hunch Kinda understandable really hide spoiler
