Congratulations! This is a wonderful novel with a most interesting plot, which could possibly make an exciting adventure movie. I found the book to be written in an elegant style, the description of places and events colorful, with the personalities of each individual coming alive as the story progressed. The pace is fast, which is in keeping with the work's adventure type scenario. On several occasions, despite other pressing commitments, I found it difficult to set the book aside because of the climatic anticipation which the author was so successful in capturing. -- A Professor of Economics and a resident of Canada
The author has come up with a nice thriller, well-developed, with excellent pacing of events from slow build-up through complex action. The plot is believable, which is not always the case with thrillers. The situations are just a whisker ahead of the news and the characters and political actions are very close to the mark. I liked particularly the difficult balancing act that the lead character, John Stratton, had to maintain between sympathies and duties, his intricate deals with the Russians, and the unrelenting daily activities which are paralleled with the mounting dramatic tension. His outbursts of anger as situations seem to go out of control gives him more humanity. This is a very good thriller. -- A School Administrator, a resident of New York City
The story is interesting, important, and highly original. Its biggest strength is its storytelling and plot. The interconnection of events from all over the world are played off one against another masterfully. A big asset is the author's knowledge of politics, governmental organizations, and military operations. All this is integrated very well in a novel which is very well paced. I did not detect any places where I wanted it to move faster. As a matter of fact, I thought the pace was very quick without extraneous material. The author has done an excellent job of staying with the story. -- A poetry and fiction writer, resident of New Mexico
