This is a completely timely novel of political suspense--the female Secretary of State is abducted after a terrorist attack on her convoy in Pakistan. This is VERY realistically written by Britton, a former Army combat engineer who is currently pursuing a double major in economics and psychology. He paints an all too familiar and tense political picture from many angles, including inside
the minds of the players on both sides of the action. He walks a fine line between technical and personal which will keep a wide range of readers involved and wanting more (fortunately there is more--this is Britton's third book).


This book has it's graphic moments, but they are important to the context of the story and not just to shock the reader. There is a lot of gray in this book--the good guys aren't exactly wearing white hats and halos and the bad
guys have some humanity mixed in with their hate. Like I said--realistic.
