A great first novel by Jack Henderson that was full of action, surprises and romance There were a lot of details in the book that probably took the author a lot of time to research and figure out I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrillers with twists and turns, a book that you cannot put down until you are finished with it. Shades of Wag the Dog I loved the characters and the plot in this story Home grown terrorists are just as crazy as foreign born terrorists and just as dangerous I loved the computer interaction and Kate s persona was spot on for an AI There is room for in this world so I hope I get to read them. Gripping thriller I loved the tie ins with computer technology and the mad rants of the ultra right religious fanatic.I remember Clancy s scenario where a plane hits the Pentagon and takes out enough people to wherein his protagonist becomes Prez.This book also stirs memories of De Mille s Wildfire. If you like 24 , you will definitely like this quick,explosive reading There is no dull moment in this suspenseful book Hope you all like it Personal suggestion, read it at the cold miserable rainy night so you will be wrapped in a heat of the greatest adventure. this is a solid little thriller it s getting hard for me to give those above 3 stars any since the genre tends to be fairly derivative but for a present day, political intrigue and zealot happy book, this was pretty good i enjoyed the tie in to real terrorist events, and the book has pretty strong character development considering the genre, as well that leads to one of the few downsides, such as they are even as they were slightly different, the characters all felt cliched, in a way intelligent, misunderstood girl intelligent, misunderstood guy gay sidekick masculine, sacrificial lamb the only good part i can say about all that is there was no one hero, and one of the hero types dies the first 50 pages are so are somewhat uneven overall in fact, my only other complaint was the penchant for monologuing it happens early on, then a few times but overall, the writing is fairly tight, and the plot turns kept me turning. Really exciting book, centred on a couple of super brainy geeks, some crazy computer programs, lots of action, and a plot for overthrowing the government What s not to like There are various techie references thrown into the narrative which I appreciated, although I did note a few minor mistakes How many compilers create a Windows executable which contain the text of source code comments, for example The mistakes were not a big deal at all though.For me, Henderson s writing style is easy and enjoyable to engage with, and the characters are expressed very well I felt myself relating to them and building up a real sense of who they were.A great read for geeks, nerds, and anybody who likes a bit of action and intrigue.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Circumference of Darkness book, this is one of the most wanted Jack Henderson author readers around the world.
