really liked it

This is my first experience read a Steve Martini book and will not be the last. He is one of those authors that I have always thought I would read if I got the chance and now I know I have missed some interesting reading. The Rule Of Nine is a political thriller with terrorists being hired to bring about change in the American government. It evidently picks up where his last Paul Madriani novel left off so I guess it has some of the same characters introduced in that book and maybe even before. For those of us who came of age in the 1960s Mr. Martini even works in an aging Weatherman into his web of intrigue. From the look at how politics actually works to the interesting little historical facts that Mr. Martini laces his story with makes for an interesting read.

If you are interested in political thrillers this will be a quick and interesting read for you. It will make you wonder if the scenarios that Mr. Martini envisions could actually happen some where down the road. A very good read in the genre and I will visit Mr. Martini's earlier works. ( )

Terri Dirnberger I recommend you read Martini's earlier works. This one is lukewarm compared to those. Madriani is a much better lawyer than he is a terrorist chaser. In fact, the terrorist chasing is rather lame.
