    Interesting and slightly scary

    It was a good read. I would have preferred more details of life after the resolution. It ends a bit too quickly.

    Heart-Stopping Suspense

    The unthinkable, unspeakable has happened. A nuclear explosion has destroyed an American city. Thousands of American lives are lost. Entire blocks of the city are vaporized.

    Who could have done such an act? Further, how will America respond to such an egregious act of terrorism? The shock and horror quickly turn to demands for revenge and war, even before responsibility for the act is known. Will the President declare war, and will he do it because it is the right thing to do, or because he is pushed into it politically by rival factions determined to steer the course of the country?

    Iran is the first suspect and the one most people instinctively believe is behind the horror. Other nations start to line up on either the side of America retaliating against Iran or against such action. Israel has been poised to take action against Iran itself; where will it come down in the balance? Will the other countries with nuclear weapons stay on the sidelines or use whatever happens as entry for settling old feuds? Is Iran the true answer or is another country responsible and using Iran as a smokescreen? What about the domestic groups determined to steer the country towards their vision of how the future should unfold? Are any of these groups involved?

    William S. Cohen has written a heartstopping novel of terror and intrigue. Cohen is a former Secretary of State, serving under President Clinton. His background and expertise gives the book the immediacy and weight of details known only to a select few; those who daily balance what is best for the country and how America must relate to the myriad needs and desires of other countries, both friends and foes. This book is recommended for readers who enjoy spy and suspense novels; it is indeed a must-read.
