"Intriguing tale of a stroke victim senator with a biochip implant who receives radio feedback from voters, global networks conspiring to protect their finanicial interests, and a deep delve into dirty tactics of media spin doctors out to rule the world from behind the scenes. INCREDIBLE and CAPTIVATING!"
"OK depiction of the Masters of Deception cyber-gang and their phone system hacking conquests of late 80s - early 90s. Decent personalization of characters & portrayal of hacker philosophy. Not tremendous tech detail or extremely captivating. But decent."
