This political thriller quickly catches your attention and builds to a powerful conclusion! The author's remarkable credentials lend credence to the storyline, and you can't help but wonder whether the book's premise is not merely unsettling, but prophetic. Kept my attention from first page to last, and the characters are excellent.
