By the time his successor concludes the quest, the reader has been treated to a tale covering an intriguing array of subplots that ultimately are interrelated. There is an uneasy alliance between an American communications company and a Japanese manufacturer and distributor. Critical to the success of their venture is the passage of a bill that will permit the export of military communications technology, with the proviso that the most advanced technology will be held back. The Congressional maneuvering involved is engrossing if not uplifting. An emailing blackmailer threatens the Congressman for whom the bill is named, seeking to coerce his resignation.
In the middle of it all is Adam Braxton, currently a freelance consultant, who lands a contract from CERT/CC (Computer Emergency Response Team/Coordination Center) to follow up on Ramal’s report of the anomaly.
Braxton forms his own alliances as he battles his way to fulfill his contract. One attempt on his life kills the wrong person but it won’t end there. His technical skills and ingenuity are complemented by rock-climbing activity and military training that give him credibility as a man of action as well.
Characters drive the action, and the reader will have no difficulty distinguishing the good from the bad, but there are significant differences in talent, resourcefulness and resolve. The chief villain is a formidable adversary.
The story moves along briskly and the dialog is fresh. Verbal sketches of Boston, MIT, Washington D.C. and rural New Hampshire convey a sense of the locales in few words. Interspersed through the story are touches of wry humor.
Read this book and wait for the next Adam Braxton adventure!
