Seven Days From Sunday, by MH Sargent

This is a quick read, suitable only for poolside or airplane use.   Not that it was bad: the plot was solid, and most of the character development was good.   It is just this close to a strong book; something about the writing.  It seemed loose, like a beginner's effort.   Some of the phrases were goofy and there seem to be a few factual errors.  Maybe I'm being too critical as I can't precisely explain the problem.   Net net though, for 99 cents, I've already complained too much.

Some details:  the setting is Iraq, the main characters are CIA agents embedded with US military and a handful of Iraqi civilians.    The set up is for a sequel.
