Unbelievable to the point of absurd, might appeal to video gamers
Put your brain in neutral and suspend all sense of reality if you want to enjoy this absurdly silly storyline. Boys and young men might find it entertaining, but my gag reflex got to me at page 360, of 853 pages, and I couldn't go on. A super intelligence group starts out performing feats of absolute wonder, infiltrating a ship that has some truly bizarre booby traps on it, only to fall flat on its face and become totally incompetent. The agents are outsmarted by a simple accountant who, without any explanation, suddenly develops highly honed espionage skills, while his computer friend gathers all kinds of information the entire agency is unable to come up with. The constant use of the word "goons" for all the bad guys also became annoying. This should be categorized as a video game-like story rather than a mystery. JRB
