An entertaining if fanciful espionage thriller.

It has enough twists and turns to keep the most staid reader engrossed. The only problem is that in respect to reality it is off the chart.

Regardless, it is a fun read as Mr. Reich pulls out all the stops. In essence, It is a story with multiple plots and characters all intertwined in a general tale of engineering a war with Iran by shooting down an Israeli airliner with an Iranian drone. It pits the CIA against the U.S. Defense Department while involving the Mossad, British Intelligence along with Iran and various nefarious terrorist organization. It is literally a who's who of the espionage world where it is impossible to tell the good guys from the bad until the final pages.

Overall, no gratuitous language, sex, or violence. Lots of physical violence but well within reason and not overblown. Recommended as a fun read. Not your techno-espionage thriller, but the numerous deceptions make for an engrossing suspenseful read.
