The author does a great job of creating a unique and diverse group of characters: spies, celebrities, politicians, and even sexy computer geeks! He gives them each their own unique story but masterfully weaves them all together to make an intriguing, suspenseful, and exciting story from the start to the action-filled ending. What a great adventure!
