Recommended to Martha by: At the cabin!
Interesting. Dated, but oh so relevant still today. What a President! Sent me to Thoreau.

President's best friend disappears on a secret mission to stop the arms race. What a coincidence,
but this is all happening during an election season. Apparently he was unable to stop the arms race. Maybe the next novel will be where he tries to talk Al-Quaida into stopping their Jihod.

Excellent political thriller even taking into consideration it was written in 1968 and the world was much different

Boring.. too much political detail and not enough story. Couldn't finish.

I read several Knebel's books more or less in a row in the late 60s and early 70s. Looking at them again more recently, I think they hold up pretty well as solid thrillers with a big-picture base.

Slow moving book published in 1968----yet the issues could be today. Just couldn't get interested in the characters.

Fair. I feel there was too much information given in the book to make the novel interesting.
