It takes only a few opening pages to realize that David Drum has a firm writing grip on the manic humor of Monty Python mixed with the whimsy of Peter Sellers to create a rollicking host of loony characters in a novel that tackles one of the hot topics of the day, the outsourcing of America. I loved the story's sense of place, from wintry Cleveland factories, the Nepal mountains, Shanghai streets to exotic West Coast mansions. The characters passionately hang on as the author sends them through hoops of intrigue, greed, patriotism and comeuppance. This is a very funny novel. Ken Luber, Idyllwild, CA.
