A thermonuclear bomb planted in New York City provides powerful leverage against the President of the United States. Muammar al-Qaddafi, Israeli government leaders, U.S. officials and the terrorists make up the cast of characters. Christopher Hurt does a masterful job of narration. His pacing and voice identify each individual and draw the reader into the action. At the same time, Hurt's sensitive interpretation allows the reader to sympathize with the different dilemmas involved. The scenario seems plausible; Hurt's powerful reading moves it into the realm of possibility.

One of the all-time great thrillers. The original techno-thriller, pre-Clancy and better than anything he ever wrote. Even scarier now after 9/11 than when it was written. The final line of the book sent a shiver down my spine. Phenomenal book.

This is an amazing book, especially given when it was written.
