This is a hard book to stop reading. It grabs your interest from the start because of the authors masterfull blending of reality and fiction.
The story is actually terrifying because, as the author writes in a postscript, almost all of the necessary pre-conditions have already happened.
Full of action, good solid characters, and a hero that can also be brutal.
A very good read. It is hard to believe that this is supposed to be Nathan Hales first book.
Personally I can't wait for his promised next volume in this series.
