Trevor Scott delivers with The Dolomite Solution. Reasonably well written and mildly creative, Hypershot is representative of modern e-plublishing in that it's a good story, if improbably fleshed out with too many plot shortcuts.

In a time when the U.S. military is shrinking, our leaders are turning to high technology as a force equalizer. America has not had a new hand-held rifle since the M16 was introduced in the 1960s. Now theres a new gun ready to take its position as the NATO standard. A gun so sophisticated, so fast, so unbelievably accurate, it will turn the average shooter into an expert marksman almost instantly. The problem is, it was developed by a German company with no U.S. production contract.

Thats where Warfield Arms, a Denver gun company, enters the action. Warfield hires Chad Hunter, a private weapons designer who had worked for the German company, to go to Germany to convince the company that Warfield is the perfect partner. To sweeten the deal, Hunter must first convince Frank Baldwin, a struggling optics engineer from Wyoming, who has developed the most advanced rifle scope ever conceived, that his scope would be the perfect match for this new German rifle. With the scope as bait, the Germans would surely deal.

What Hunter and Baldwin find in Germany during the middle of the Oktoberfest celebration, could just get them both killed. Other countries and private factions would like this new weapon, and some in Germany want it only for that country. Theres murder, kidnapping, extortion, and shoot-outs.... Who said the end of the Cold War wouldn't be any fun?

Hypershot was reasonably entertaining -- enough so that I am currently reading the next book in the series. Like almost all of Trevor Scott's novels, it is decent "pulp fiction." Reasonably well written and mildly creative, Hypershot is representative of modern e-plublishing in that it's a good story, if improbably fleshed out with too many plot shortcuts. The proof-reading and fact-checking editing are sorely lacking, as the text is filled with misspellings, words misused (when spell checker sees a word spelled right, it doesn't often note that the word is wrongly used). Research into facts and details is also sorely missing, as Scott often states some popular misconception as fact -- and clearly never really checked for validity. In the second book, as an example, the characters are set in Turku, Finland. Turku is the Finnish name for the city -- being in a bilingual part of Finland, the city is also known in Swedish as Abo -- often shown on maps as "Turku/Abo." Scott notes in passing that Abo is the Finnish name of the city -- doesn't offer any linguistic identity for Turku. Probably thought Turku was the name in Engligh (which it also is). These kinds of errors aren't really important, just distracting -- and to me, indicative of somewhat of a shortage of pride and professionalism in one's work.

So that's likely why the story and plot lines are also a little sloppy. Decent value for money, Scott's novels are good enough to read when you've time to kill and want to read someting that is mildly entertaining but completely insubsantial.

If you like an easy-read international spy novel, with at least a few interesting facts re: weapons, geography, policy and, here and there, a conspiracy, this author, Trevor Scott, fills the bill. If you are normally involved in intense reading during the day, his books will entertain you. The only negative for me is Scott's books don't put me to sleep; they keep me up! Read accordingly. For the first time since James Bond (no, not quite as good as 007), I followed a recurring character in his books and actually looked forward to new books in the series. It's nice coming through the back door since there are a number of his series books already written. Just look do a quick view of a few of the books in the series to see the listing of his books so that you can figure out the order. (The Jake Adams series is the best; Hyperlink is not on the same level but still interesting). It is worth following the books in order as the characters return in the future.

Scott, by his lonesome, justified my tablet purchase.

Exciting action-packed story about a futuristic gun prototype, and the effort to keep it out of enemy hands. Chad and Frank fly over to Germany for what was to be an uneventful sales pitch/contract signing, but soon encounter unexpected danger at every turn. The gun is so ground-breaking that other factions try to steal it for themselves, along with Frank's equally advanced scope. Sirena, the agent assigned to tail the two men, soon gets involved as now all three of them are targets of all those who seek the weapons. Strong story and characters, with an intriguing plot line, make this book a great read. The ending has a few nice twists involving a few of the characters, and some further closure for some of them would have been appreciated, but this is still a strong four-star effort in my opinion. I'll be downloading the sequel, Global Shot, immediately!

This is an entertaining story, that revolves around how much money can be made when applying new technology to old military problems. You will like the characters you are supposed to like, and not like those that you aren't supposed to like. It is a bit predictable, but still enjoyable. A few extra plot twists, and this could be great rather than good.

I've been a big fan of Trevor Scott and have bought many of his books, some pre-ordered. Hypershot is one of his very best. Great action and story line. Plus the details of the plot are actually true about a recently created weapon that is almost out of science fiction. I am so glad I found this book and will recommend it to readers of action, military, espionage novels. You will be hooked!

When I purchased this book, there were only three reviews. Two of these reviews were five-stars, and final one was only given a single-star. I've recently read a couple other Trevor Scott books, and couldn't see how anything written by this same author could possibly warrant one star. I found the story interesting enough that I didn't notice any errors within the text. I'm happy to have found this author, and this will most assuredly not be the last book by Mr. Scott that I read.

Enjoyed this book from the start. Read a number of Scott's books now and he always gets your interest virtually from the start. Good characterisation and story comes together. Doesn't go over the top with technicalities of the subject weapon but you can easily glean what it's main attributes are. More than one set of baddies keeps story ripping along. Definitely will be into more from this author.
Have just read the first and second books of Chad Hunter Thriller Series. Very good writing, good stories , good actions, good characters. Can't wait to read the third episode. After Chad is done, hope to read all the Jake Books. Trevor Scott keep them coming. You have a great writing skills and imagination. Thanks, Amarillo Turtle
