Evans' best book yet!
on July 6, 2007
As a previous commenter wrote, Evans has invented a new genre-- travelogue as thriller. He's been all over the world, and he writes about it with authority and compassion. This his best work to date. It's a savvy and nuanced page-turner about multi-national corporations and the zealots who oppose them. PW's review doesn't give it the credit it deserves. This is not a formulaic story about Danielle Leaf the action hero. It's about her awakening as a human being. The book examines issues of individual culpability and the American character, and it's smart enough not to point fingers. For good measure, it also gives a bird's eye view of the fascinating techie underground. I totally want to go to defcon now. I absolutely loved this book.
