I always like to read the book before I see the movie. :) That is why I read this book and I am glad I did. This book is very intense. I loved how the story was told and how the characters are portrayed. This book is definitely worth reading..especially before the movie. ;)

Good book! I didn't know until I began reading it's the book that a movie was based upon. I think the book is better.

This is my first Joseph Finder novel and I found it to be very interesting, full of surprises and intrigue, and I want to read more from him. While not your typical Who-Done-It, it still keeps the reader guessing and the ending is quite a surprise. Not too much blood and gore, or romance to distract from the plot. My only wish was that the author had seen fit to discipline the child when it was called for, otherwise, a good, quick read.

My first by this author and I'll be reading more. The story telling kept my interest. I normally wouldn't read a book involving military stuff but I found this book very compelling.

I love this author - always extremely fast paced, always one twist after another, always exhilerating. This book was no exception to all that. A quick read, thrilling and enjoyable, now I want to see the movie!

DeMille is a good storyteller and he calls Finder a master storyteller and this book is right in there, especially if you like courtroom drama with mystery and surprize endings.

So, I hear that there is a movie out about this book. Anyone who has read a book then watched the movie already knows that the books are the best. So take a chance on this book. It's so riveting, I couldn't put it down. I loved each and every page. Kept me entertained til the end.

Read like an action movie... not really my style. A little tough to believe, too. Not very realistic.
