The Rubicon Effect

The Rubicon Effect,this new book of Roy Dimond is set in a total upside down world.The authors features an unusual scenario,get the readers to know the "big secrets of political strategies" sessions,under the circumstances of a newly ordained Pope,the US presidential Election and the death of Venezuelan President.
This novel mass appeal is due to the popular world's global climate,too far on the way to irreversible change.

I enjoyed this book. It reminded me of books like The da Vinci Code... Political intrigue, religious icons, mysterious characters. I was compelled to keep reading, to see how it would end, and I was not disappointed with how the story turned out. Dimond's characters are clearly drawn, and varied, and the story and setting are at times familiar, and at other times unique and fascinating. The story seems realistic, and well-researched. It feels like it could happen in our world.
