Assured Response: A Novel Mass Market Paperback – May 31, 2005. by. Joe Weber (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. For some reason Weber has moved from "classic" techno-thrillers to a mushy, "Nick and Nora" couple who solve the problems of the world in between gourmet meals and great wines. There is no suspense, because there is no suspension of disbelief. I couldn't stand it after ten pages.

The "assured" quality of attack and response drains the book of its suspense, and the violence level rises predictably and inexorably. Dalton and Sullivan continue to speak like robots (She: "We are going to Hawaii as soon as possible, right?" He: "No argument from me, but responsibility is the nature of our business"), and they also seem to watch much of the book's action on Fox News

New threats require new weapons. I've read all of Joe Webers books, this one is some of his best work. The story moves along fast and he doesn't spend over amount of time filling pages with character history

New threats require new weapons. The time is the near future. The story moves along fast and he doesn't spend over amount of time filling pages with character history. I put him in the same class as, Cliver Cussler, Dale Brown and Stephen Coonts.

New threats require new weapons. New villains require new heroes.The time is the near future. Osama Bin Laden has been succeeded by a generation of even deadlier terrorists who will stop at nothing in their fanatical quest to destroy the United States. Conventional security is no longer enough. Former military pilots Scott Dalton and Jackie Sullivan are the government’s newest weapons—operatives so secret that their very existence is denied by the officials who hired them. Armed with the most up-to-date technology and equipment, their mission is to prevent a plan of nuclear holocaust that will begin at the Canadian border and explode in the centers of American power.They have their work cut out for them.Foremost among their foes are Saeed Shayhidi, a billionaire Iranian “businessman” and mass murderer, far more sophisticated and sadistic than Bin Laden himself; Khaliq Farkas, a mysterious and ever-elusive terrorist, bearing a barbaric grudge; and Zheng-Yen Tsung, the powerful Chinese official who may be the mastermind behind it all.From a shocking sarin attack on a legendary ocean liner to the stalking of chemical plants and oil refineries by aircraft filled with explosives, no attack is too insidious, no symbol of strength and freedom immune. For Dalton and Sullivan, their expertise has never been more necessary—their bravery never more needed—than in a world where unrepentant evil requires an assured response.From the Hardcover edition.

This novel essentially is based upon a scenario where a well-financed terrorist wages a no-holes-barred assault on America's infrastructure. Dams, cities, and so forth are all fair game. The author's protagonists, Scott Dalton and Jackie Sullivan, are detailed to track down the terrorists and their weapons of mass destruction.

Not a bad novel, but it has some weaknesses. Firstly, Scott and Jackie are one-dimensional, and while they are described as "life partners," their personal relationship is almost completely otherwise unstated. Secondly, they seem oddly disinclined to actually take on the terrorists when they find them. Their modus operendi seems to be search, find, wait around until the terrorists disappear. It was kind of weird.

Stories involving these protagonists have potential, but it was unrealized in this entertaining but imperfect novel. RJB.

I have read five of the author's novels, and have rated all but one of them excellent or very good. However, this book was a real surprise in view of his other works. The two main good guys are portrayed as near-super heroes, yet they lack reality, and are better suited for a Bobbsy Twins novel. The dialogue between them comes straight from a comic book. Another surprising turn, given the author's background in Naval Aviation, was the hero using a glass of water as a backup artificial horizon in the middle of a thunderstorm.The moderate to severe turbulence encountered would have quickly knocked the glass off the glare shield. The action scenes are good and almost continuous, but after a while the repetition of calamities seem a bit too much.

This book spent too much time developing the story and way too much space describing too many items of destruction to try and make a point. This book never really develops the two main characters. WAY TOO MANY DISASTERS when 1/2 would have been sufficient. The book leaves the reader hanging. If the two main characters were such great spy why did the author really ignore them. They accomplished nothing.

The Job Weber corporation needs to ditch its current ghost writer and go back to whoever it wrote the original Joe Weber books that first put him on the map on the recommended list. This current work is garbage and the author should be ashamed.

Scott and Jackie, the main characters did not seem to want to catch the terrorists very badly as they kind of just followed them around. It wad frustrating that they we they were not more aggressive. It was purposeful by Jack Weber as he can continue writing this series. I would have thought he could have just created new bad guys. There are enough in the real world to mimic.
The author is very knowledgable about military aircraft. The story is riveting, but I found some of the sub plots a little "too unbelievable". I couldn't believe that skilled pilots like Jackie Sullivan and Scott Dalton would knowingly fly into the teeth of a severe thunderstorm. I'm a WWII pilot and didn't understand why he brought in the old B-25s to drop atomic bombs. The novel is gripping and is I assume is what he intended, i.e, a "Worst Case Scenario". It is realistic to paint the Muslim Fanatics as unconscionable and absolutely without morals, decency, or humanity.. My biggest problem with this novel was that Mr. Weber tried to crowd too much material, too many plots into the story.
