Another great book by one of my favorite authors (or co-author in this case), Neal Stephenson. The FBI, CIA, NSA, Turkish spies, and an Iowa deputy sheriff all play a role in combating Iraqi terrorists in a small mid-western town. But while the powers-that-be in Washington are deciding whether to believe that trouble is brewing in Wapsipinicon Iowa, the deputy is on his own... A real page turner.
If you are a Neal Stephenson fan, you will love this series - very deep plots and great characters, set it the late 17th / early 18th century, mainly in western Europe, but with adventures all over the world.
A tense thriller that I enjoyed from start to finish. Two people on the run, they can trust no one, including (especially) the US government. Murder, a top secret project that threatens the world, a touch of scifi, and even some romance. If you like 24, the TV show, you'll like this book.
Strong characters set on interesting worlds. Hellhole is a damaged planet with strange weather and a number of surprises, including aliens whose agenda is unclear. Looking forward to the 2nd book of the trilogy.
