Editorial Reviews

South Bend Tribune - Mike Toal
The strongest point of The Fourth of July War is the realistic demonstration of what a few determined men can do without bothering with red tape.
The Los Angeles Times - Roger Dionne
Topol creates believable characters with real problems and emotions; he constructs a tight, suspenseful plot that has us flipping pages as fast as we can to find out what happens while we root !00% for a hero we don't altogether like.
Pittsburgh Press - A Fred Sochatoff
On the basis of this situation rooted in an all too possible reality, Topol constructs a set of events which lead the reader to recognize that they also are all too possible and to utter a silent prayer that they won't happen here...
Topol knows the Washington scene. His knowledge makes for spellbinding reading.
Natchez Democrat - Warren Koon
It's a screamer of a novel...So real it makes you believe it could happen.
