Overall, a well-written book with a superbly crafted plot, complicated and tricky in the best tradition of thrillers, with spies, radical Muslims, bio-weapons, amoral murderers, an armload of exotic foreign cities, and much much more. Don’t miss it.
This books shows how spycraft was conceived and accepted as a reliable alternative to the brute force of weapons and the questionable success of negotiations. Trust but verify started long before President Ronald Reagan made that phrase infamous.
Terrorists hijack not just one, but two nuclear warships, thanks to some tricky science that I unfold throughout the story.
