I read Cast No Shadow when it came out. It was nice and with a "Hunt for Red October" vibe, with Elias Vaugh[n] as Ryan
Interesting, since the Vaughn character was somewhat modelled after Sean Connery's Ramius from that movie.

Yeah, I'm just saying it's interesting, and maybe intentional, that the character whose older version was inspired by one figure from that movie had his younger version evidently based on the rival character from that movie.

Re: Errand of Vengeance / Fury series

What WAS the deal with all those typos? Ranks jumping from one line to the next and characters changing in midstream (Kell to Karel then back)? Would not the editors catch that? Not cracking just wondering.

quite right, Christopher Makes me wish for a follow up Vaughn novel (it's not like he's got anything going in "current" continuity.. well, maybe DRG3 has plans..)

It was jarring at first, but IMO (as I mentioned previously "upthread"), thoss occasions didn't detract from a great story.

^I agree, the story is top notch and worth overlooking the typo's. I do wish someone had edited the book though

I'm rereading it now, and it is still awesome reading!
