Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Hoover's ( The Samurai Strategy ) adept handling of convincing detail enhances this entertaining thriller as his characters deal and double-deal their way through settings ranging from the Acropolis to the inside of a spacecraft. Michael Vance, formerly of the CIA, is on his way to an archeological dig when some old friends show up. First comes KGB agent Alex Novosty, caught laundering money that the KGB claims was embezzled--and he wants Michael to take charge of the hot funds. Then National Security Agency cryptographer Eva Borodin (who is Michael's ex-lover) appears with an undecipherable but dangerous computer file: the co-worker who gave her the file has since vanished. Heavies from a Japanese crime syndicate attack Michael and Eva, who are rescued by Alex, but it looks like Alex and the syndicate aren't complete strangers. Moreover, a mysterious Daedalus Corporation seems to be a link between Alex's money and Eva's file. As Michael is drawn into this deadly web, he realizes there is a secret agreement between the Soviets and the Japanese--and it has nothing to do with trading tea-brewing customs. (Aug.)

    Highly Recommended

    Just finished this this evening. What a great story. It was full of great characters, has a good story line and plenty of plot twists to keep you from laying it down! The Russians and Japanese team up to build the first true spaceplane in secret. Supposedly built for space research the russian test pilot discovers some decidedly militaristic characteristics. In the US a NSA analyst makes some surprising discoveries on her own that lead to the Japanese mob boss who is financing the project. Throw in some Greek mythology to spice it all up and you end up with a book worth reading!

    I Also Recommend:

    More than boring old ALPHABET SOUP!

    That's right. Alphabet soup. You know, like KGB, NSA, US? Well this is a great Hoover to read after The Samurai Strategy since it uses the same Wall Street guy and has a similar flavor. It gets your taste buds to bump up from the start. Enjoy!

    Another Great book by Thomas Hoover

    Captivating, interesting and intriguing read! I disagree with the reviewers who complain about the length of the book. I enjoyed tremendously the details, and explanations about the "Project", especially when the book is well written, well researched, and that the personages are well depicted. I highly recommend this book.

    Great. another book with sex.

    Seriously?!? Why is it that every book on the market nowadays with a halfway decent storyline either has way too much cussing, or has totally inappropriate scenes? Just once, I'd like to find a Nook book with a good plot that is decent enough to let my little brother read! Seriously, B+N, shape it up, or I'm gonna sue!

    fair but too detailed

    overdone, way too much info on weapons/violence, etc. could have told the same story in 1/3 the pages.

    A GREAT READ EVEN IF DATED

    Quite an exciting and involving read. At 800+ pages it takes a while to complete but is worth it. The only downside is that it relies on the now-passed cold war scenario with the Soviets as the heavies and adds Japanese industrialists/bankers as co-heavies. A more current geopolitical setting would be great for another Hoover book (I haven't checked yet to see if there are any).

    Wonderful story line.

    Great book. Must admit there were quite a few dry spots that the author could have left out. KGB, NSA, US, Japan, Russia... makes for a very interesting plot.

    Very Good

    Very interesting to read, even if the end was a little predictable. Reminded me of the Clint Eastwood movie Firefox. Still. A very good read.

    Terrible

    No stars! 863 pages of crap. Could not get past 35 pages of this free book. NOT worth it, even for free.
