Great great book. I read the first couple of chapters to see what this book was about, and I got so hooked that I stopped reading the book I was in the middle of! Finished it in four nights. This is a great novel that is filled with action, romance, suspense and the amount of knowledge that Robert L. Beck has packed into it is amazing. Never a dull moment when reading this book, and I strongly recommend and encourage others to read it. If I had to say something negative.. it would be that my eyes hurt from reading it for 3-4 hours at a time!
