He has always been one of my favorite authors. But the books near the end of his career just don't make it. The main activity thru out the book, over and over again, is people getting a drink of whisky. Why would any author think this was interesting to the reader. You have a to very patient to read this book. It is work. The story line is very good, I was expecting a much better telling of this story line than I received. Anyone who was not a die-hard fan of Alistar would not make it thru this book. This is not Ice Station Zebra or any one of his books from the 60s. I ran into the alcohol obsession in another of his books, I think it was Floodgate. I recomend passing, unless you just love the authors other works.

I first read this book a long time ago. It has become a bit dated but is still a good story. MacLean writes a lot better than a lot of modern authors although this is not one of his better efforts.

Great story. The hero saves California!

This is a quick paced, interesting novel that was written and takes place in the 1970's. Its a novel about terrorism by a weird sect of Muslims in the US, written before 9/11 was even dreamed about. I really liked the characters in this novel....the author really made them come alive.!!

Just like there's comfort food, I have comfort books and movies. Goodbye California is one of those. I just love Sgt John Ryder, he is a fantastic protagonist, and the humor is great. I will be reading this book again and again.

I read all of his books many years ago. They are just as good all these years later!
Excellent, MacLean at his best
