(Bantam Books 1991)


Publisher’s Weekly


“Hoover’s characters double-deal their way through settings ranging from the Acropolis to the inside of a superplane that skims the edge of space –- the ultimate in death-dealing. A secret agreement between the Russian military and the Yakuza, Japanese crime lords, threatens to shift the balance of world power.”

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!

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!

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.

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).

Five chapters into this book and I'm giving up on it. I tried to give it some time, but I found myself waiting for the plot to go somewhere, ANYWHERE, close to the description. I really hate the writing style. Too many unfinished sentences with the ... and -. I only gave this book one star so that I could write this post. Otherwise I would have given it no stars. Very disappointing!!!

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.
