Williamson competently moves the action forward with plenty of battlescenes, weaponry details and tactical minutiae.
Freehold: Ripple Creek Series
The more interesting parts of the novel are about handling a distasteful protectee who detests her detail, and of the personal struggles of one team member. Unfortunately, the rest of the team are by now far too polished and perfect, leaving the ending not very much in doubt. Set in the same universe as Freehold but preceding it chronologically, this novel follows a group of bodyguards tasked with protecting the president of a nation wracked by civil war. The setting is very much inspired by present day Afghanistan and Iraq.

From the excellent action scenes to the realistic character studies, Williamson displays his impressive knowledge of military matters. The plot is a bit slow and perhaps even unfocused in the first half, but then picks up speed to end in a huge climax. In fact, this book could have been set in the present day Middle East with very few changes.
In the sequel to Better to Beg Forgiveness , Williamson revisits his team of six elite bodyguards.
