Irving Wallace was born in Chicago, Illinois, raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and educated in Berkeley, California. After writing political articles, biographical profiles, human-interest stories, and fiction for the leading national magazines, he turned his attention to the creation of books. Wallace's 16 novels and 17 non-fiction works have sold tens of millions of copies around the world. His first major success was with The Chapman Report, in 1960, which was made into a film in 1962. His bestselling 1962 Cold War novel The Prize was made into a film in 1963, starring Paul Newman. The Man was made into a film in 1972 starring James Earl Jones. After an amazing career spanning decades, Irving Wallace died June 29, 1990. He is survived by his children, Amy Wallace and David Wallechinsky, both best-selling authors in their own right.

The language was genuine and representative of its time you could empathize with the protagonist and definitely become engrossed with the other characters and the story's plot. This was a page turner--I was torn I didn't want to finish it because I didn't want it to end, but I knew it had to. I think this should be assigned reading.

The word awesome doesn't begin to do justice to this reading experience. I don't think I have read such a thought provoking book in many years. The attitudes, fears, and hopes of the characters were expertly woven into the story leading one to try to imagine who the different charaters might pertain to in present time. Although this is fiction, it is educational for those who wish to see.
