If you've never read or listened to a Deutermann novel before, you're in for a treat. P.T. is a retired Naval Captain and Arms Control SPecialist, so he certainly has the background knowledge to "know" what he's talking about. This book is what can be classified as a "Top Notch Thriller" that can fit very easily between the "X-Files" and what could become the reality of tomorrow's headlines. I think you'll find this book is highly entertaining, without the excess of techno-babble usually found in books of this type. Granted, there are a lot of acronyms in here He tells you what they mean), but I wouldn't worry too much - they don't take away from the story line. Deutermann paints an unexpected portrait of people, both good and bad who have been chewed up and spit out by the military/government. People holding grudges can resort to some nasty ways at getting even ...... in this case stealing a cannister of "Wet Eye" WMD (weapon of Mass Destruction).... the mystery begins....... Other Deutermann books you may be interested in are: [Cat Dancer], [FireFly], [Darkside], [Hunting Season], [Train Man], [Sweepers], [Official Privilege], [The Edge of Honor], [Scorpion in the Sea]. Enjoy!!!!
