If the nuclear bomb is the devil's light, then why is America the one holding the most of them? Rhetorical question, of course. One thing author Richard North Patterson does in this novel is educate. If you didn't know the difference between Sunni and Shia, you will find out here, especially how much the two factions hate each other. Paterson tells us a great deal of the Mideast, the weaknesses of the US government, and then he also tries to tell a story of suspense. A nuclear bomb is Osama Bin Laden's gift on the tenth anniversary of 9-11. Where it will land is one of the questions of the story, but there is no Seal Team 6 to stop it, only a CIA agent and a female undercover Mossad agent. Of course, the two are in love. As the nuclear bomb moves across the Mideast, the tension should be building, but instead we get a history of the affair between the two agents. This is the equivalent of throwing cold water on any interest the reader may have in what could be suspense involving the bomb. The other unlikely factor in the novel is that only one person sees the true direction of the bomb. That's right, our entire government cannot figure it out, just this one agent. The book still retains some interest despite these interruptions, but any Richard North Patterson novel is expected to be a bit of a lecture. So be prepared, duck for cover, and enjoy the romance. When finished, see how many college credits you can get for your new knowledge.
