It was worth the wait (of 30+ years) to finish this one. The "fifth estate" running the country and controlling the world. Scary and yet so very plausible! And even though it was dated for the 1972 and 1976 elections, it could be just as believable today. I know the ending was left rather open-ended, but that's all to the good! Because I would hate to see what eventually happens to Brad (and Elda).

A quick read despite it's 450 pages. I had wanted to reAd The Fifth estate since it first came out in the 1970s. I may read more of Robin Moore's books. This is very entertaining and his The French Connection is a good movie.
