An interesting theme built on geopolitical conditions as they existed for the U. S. just prior to the improved position of the U. S. with regard to energy holdings since the recent oil and gas recovery techniques. The characters in the story remind the reader so much of the way our U. S. political leaders are perceived today, and how they might react to the crisis that occurs in Topol's story when an Ally turns on the United States because of greed and extreme self-interest. An exciting and fun read right to the very end.
Excellent book in the spy/mystery genre. I have read the author's other kindle books and have thoroughly enjoyed them. The books can be read quickly and are hard to put down. This, as the others, have absorbing plots. The characters are well developed. Allan Topol's books rank with other best selling authors.
