Michael Palmer outdoes himself with this one! This book is brilliantly crafted and well written. The plot is unique, filled with suspense,twists and turns,and VERY VERY SCARY. The reader is held captive with the question: COULD THIS REALLY HAPPEN? The suspense builds and builds. The height of surprise and pathos comes near the end when the mastermind behind the president's mysterious illness is revealed.

Right off the bat, we have harriet klausner ruining another book. Another lost sale for bn because i refuse to buy a book after this self righteous poster reveals every detail of the book. Why waste money? Harriet klausner seems to think other ppl are too stupid to read, so she takes it upon herself to divulge every detail of the book.

    I've learned to check reviews and to not read harriet klausner or other long reviews for fear of getting spoilers. I agree that people need to limit the amount of info given in their reviews.

    Give it a miss

    If you have a choice between reading this book or watching Sponge Bob Square Pants, opt for Sponge Bob.

    Didn't Even Finish

    While driving back to his borrowed apartment from the White House, someone that is following Gabe tries to assassinate him. Gabe is saved by an undercover Secret Service agent that is also following him. The assassin escapes and Gabe and the agent swap cars so Gabe can continue on to his apartment. How stupid is this? I couldn't get past a mistake like this. I know it's fiction but at least make sense.

    Started off okay, went rapidly downhill.

    I got the sample of this book on my Nook before purchasing it. It intrigued me enough to buy it. I should have saved my money! The story quickly got very unbelievable and rather ridiculous.
