This book is riveting and suspenseful throughout the novel. The plot keeps you spellbound as the characters race against time to correct a mistake that must be reversed by Independence Day. There are the "Deal Makers" and the "Deal Breakers". Millions of dollars are exchanged to steal the most treasured American document to be given to a feared terrorist. The race is on to keep the United States and its new president from becoming the laughing stock of the world. There is also romance between Scott Bradley, an undercover CIA agent and Hannah Kopec, an Israeli agent of the Mossad. They must retrieve the document from the Iraqi terrorist cell even if it costs them their lives. It is an international thriller full of excitement and written expertly. The reader is held in suspense until the entire book has been read from cover to cover. This is another excellent book by this great author. The intrigue and fast moving plot keeps you from wanting to put the book now. Cherry Blossom

It's Amateur Night on the international intrigue stage, as perennial bestseller Archer shows Saddam Hussein's henchmen grooming an actor to take the place of the President so that they can--push the button that starts WW III? Rather timely to read now after the recent war in Iraq.
