Prepared For Rage by Dana Stabenow

Title - Prepared For Rage
Author - Dana Stabenow
Genre- Thriller
ISBN - 978-0312369736
Number of pages -304
Rating - 3.0 out of 5

Dana Stabenow has produced another coast guard thriller that is very up to date in its content and theme. Cal Schuyler is captain of a Coast Guard cutter and his mission is to keep the waters around Cape Canaveral clear of surface ships during during a space launch. Kenai Munro has dreamed of being an astronaut all her life . She now has her chance aboard the space shuttle Endeavor. Akil Vihari, a terrorist, has set off on his own to prove himself by committing an act of terror that will get the attention of the world.

Written with power and accuracy, Dana Stabenow has written another thriller filled with action. She spent two months aboard the real USCG cutter Munro to learn about life at sea and the work that the Coast Guard faces daily. She uses this experience to create the well developed characters in this novel. The plot, however, is quite predictable. Overall I enjoyed the book but I didn't feel that it was one of her best.
