Stolen nukes in the hands of terrorists. This plot line was, frighteningly, even more relevant today than when this was originally written. Not a bad little pot boiler. I especially liked the clever way the hero disabled a nuclear warhead.

And a second book read this year for Zombie - Cyborg day!!!

We all know the origins of Steve Austin. Astronaut. Crash victim. Medical experiment. Cyborg. Adventurer.

This time, Steven has to work try to track down who has access to small, suitcase sized nukes - and is not afraid to use them. (And if there is any doubt- two of them have been used).

Honestly, this one reminds me of many of today's modern TV Plots - replace Jack Bauer with Steven Austin. Replace bionics with luck and skill. And you wo

This book was the second cyborg book that lead to tne TV show Six Million Dollar Man. A fairly good book that allowed for setting up how medical science is progressing in repairing the human body. It is still futuristic in how much we can control technology that have been grafted on to our bodies, but we are getting there. a good book.

The second of the original "Cyborg" novels that became the Six Million Dollar Man TV series. A good 70s spy novel, but not a great Bionic Man novel. Steve doesn't even USE his f**king bionics until like page 135 of 170 pages. And that's just for like a page. ...more

A slow start to the novel of a plot to blackmail the US. It really picks up towards the end and addresses one aspect of bionics that annoys fans of the television series.
