In the R Document Irving Wallace weaves a web of political intrigue around a proposed constituional ammendment to ensure national security. As the last state required to ratify it is about to vote the true agenda of the ammendment and who would take power is revealed. I read this when it was first released in the 1970s and was glued to the story. Given the events of the past decade, it is as current and compelling now as it was then. Based on this book, I have purchased The Man and look forward to being glued to its pages. Irving Wallace does not disapoint.
