Great book! Shows an alternative perspective on a hot topic! Divici Code meets Spy novel with a bit of tongue in cheek humour but an overall serious and compelling message.

A would say its a good travel book but this isn't one you want to be reading at the airport!

> This book is a cracking read and I recommend it to everyone, including the few who might claim little knowledge of the events of 9/11.

All will welcome the extensive use of fast-paced dialogue to introduce the key points of contention between mainstream and alternative media accounts of those events, and the way Smith has woven them into a highly credible storyline.

> The author has chosen to present this book with the appearance of a non-final draft. To those who might find this less than acceptable I would urge perseverance - the "draftiness" becomes less noticeable the more the plot thickens. In my view, the "draftiness" is the author's general, and willful, indication that "things aren't over yet". More ambiguities, ommissions and uncertainties are going to be revealed to us in the future so the storyline and the book do not yet qualify for that final polish. The author affirms this point more clearly in the very last sentence of the last chapter ...

'He typed "The End" even though he knew it was not.' "

A very power message in this book and written with succinct dialog -- but author clearly has a sense of humor, too! I recommend this book.

This novel suffers from craft, style and voice issues. It reads like a first draft.

Unfortunately this novel did not work for me.
The format used (constant references) were distracting for a novel and this work was obviously not meant to be a factual reference to events as they occurred at the time. It would have been far better to put this information as an authors note at the end, along with a lot of the information dumps used throughout the story line.
Added to this was the poor writing style used, which is a shame because this could have been such a good novel with a unique plot.
If the author takes the trouble to give this work an in-depth rewrite he just might have a hit on his hands.
