No, the strength of the series to me is it presents a familiar type character in a setting I know very little about. I like it a lot better than his Tony Rome series whiich has has Tony following rules I'm familiar with in a place I know.

 I'm not comparing Albert to them, but I read C S Forester's Horatio Hornblower books and, of course Patrick O'Brian's for the similar reasons. You are able to read and learn of a world alien to you. Mark
