This is my second book of John Grisham. After reading the Pelican Brief, I was fascinated with how intelligently and well this author could write. On this farely recent book of his, I was not disappointed but even more amazed at how amazing an writer John Grisham is. Similar to the Pelican Brief, it seemed to me that Grisham again showed some opposition to the US government as in both books this government is the "bad guy". But his use of the idea of "space race" was very entertaining since I could recall on my last year's studies of the cold war and how the space race all began. Portraying China as to be the most superior in the satellite technology in this novel, this came to sound very realistic as China is growing to be world's most powerful country. Alongside with these realistic plot, Grisham's descriptive style of writing captivated and engaged me the whole time. I strongly recommend this book to any of John Grisham's fans if they still have not read it. Others are recommended to read this book to experience the amazing captive spell of John Grisham's.
