All the women are "big breasted" and the plots are small, the violence graphic and yet cartoonish. Would make an okay graphic novel, is a poor novel.
Premise is that a rogue member of thePLO has a plague that he is unleashing on the US using 175 infected but immune carriers, supporters recruited and trained to assimilate into the highest level of American society. Really? Didn't like the characters, unbelievable story, no verisimilitude, I really have to be more careful when amazon sends a deal

Jon Land has just been added to my short list of favorite authors! The Doomsday Spiral held my interest throughout and "spiraled" nicely to a highly satisfying ending.

I enjoyed this book. This is a story of a group of terrorist's plot to bring down America. It all starts with the constant war going on between the Israeli's and the Palestinians. The Palestinians want to bring down America to make it easier to deal with Israel. It is well worth reading and is fast-paced.
