Ripped from the headlines and pulsing with suspense, Geza Tatrallyay's new novel is sexy, scary and artfully informative. If you read his novel "Arctic Meltdown," you know how prescient he was about the international power grabs now shaking the Arctic Circle. Like that book, "Twisted Reasons" provides a comparable thrill -- a plausible nightmare that leaps beyond a novel's pages. Plus did I say how hot the sex is? This author's first-hand research clearly has not been confined to the Cold War!
