The plot was masterful. It was very realistic. And the characters were all well rounded believable people. They helped me understand better than ever before the motivations behind all the different groups involved.
This is not a book for children or young people. It is much too frightening and deals with very adult issues.
If you enjoy books by Tom Clancy, this is a book you should read. I think you will be drawn in the way I was, and carried through the story as fast as you can read. I can't wait to read the third book. I am very curious how David Miller will resolve the story. Thank you for a riveting read! And please keep writing, David, we're all waiting.
Keep your mind open because this deals with tough subject matter. Mr Miller weaves a tale that is plausible within the societies in our current world. I am disturbed by the fact that it can be. We all need to stay aware of how our leaders and those around them can and do affect the course of events every day of our lives.
It is set in many locales and shows how different people and/or cultures perceive things. That knowledge is useful, to my mind. No one has a lock on all wisdom and is always right or wrong.
The book is a page turner and thoroughly engaging. I highly recommend this book.
As a new author, David has a great ability to leave the ending open so that you are just wanting more!
I have enjoyed this book by far and are hopeful to read more books by David Miller.
