    BOND DOESN'T MISS A BEAT!

    In Vortex, Larry Bond tells us a story involving South Africa and the World. The plot is gripping and suspenseful from beginning to end. The characters are complex and believable. There are many plot twists, and surprises, as well as detailed military, politcal, economic and social senarios and descriptions. This book is great! Red Phoenix is a very good book (also by Larry Bond), but Vortex is even better!! Don't miss reading this one.

Con ayuda de la URSS, Cuba contrataca desde varios frentes. Las fuerzas enfrentadas utilizan sus arsenales de destruccion masiva: bombas nucleares y gas nervioso. Una fuerza anfibia anglonorteamericana desembarca en Sudafrica. Boers, anglosajones, cubanos y nativos se enfrentan a lo ancho y largo del pais.
