If you are a hardcore conservative you'll likely give D.O.G. Executive Order high marks. Not so much if you are a fervent liberal. The story centers around an incompetent progressive liberal U.S.A. President intent on destroying the constitution and the country along with it. The two marine snipers are thrown into the middle of a presidential executive order and the betrayal and intrigue it reveals. Only the personal agenda of a terrorist leader saves their lives after they are betrayed at the highest level and specifically targeted to die.
The editing and sentence structure and poor. There are far too many missing, extra, misspelled and wrong words used along with sentences that are poorly organized. Additionally, there are excessive comma where not needed, missing quotation marks and conflicting past and present tense in sentences. A competent, professional editor is needed.
Character development is good for the two main characters and several subs.
Details are good for the military aspect.
The plot is original, as if plucked from the news of several years ago and then radicalized.
The writing style is wordy, sloppy and repetitious.
