First, let me just say, "I'm easy." If an author wants to suspend my disbelief (Hereafter referred to as SOD) and show me a good time, I'm there. I cooperate fully. It doesn't take much. This book did not keep me SODed. There were parts I found to be ridiculous, and that's even with giving it a huge pass for being "near future" science fiction in which the time period for the events (2008-2009) has passed. Let me give you two glaring examples. First, the picture on the cover is of the American Vice President and the Russian Deputy Premier meeting on a space walk for a private conversation. My SOD just broke. This scene had maybe a couple of sentences to explain why this was rational, cost effective, needed; it failed to do so. Just a short paragraph to explain, rationalize and smooth my concerns would have done the job. Second, Ripley had a secret subway tunnel put in from Houston to Moscow Kiev. I'm not sure what would keep my SOD intact on that one.

So, not as good as book 2 Texas On the Rocks. It was more like book 1 The Ayes of Texas, in that it needed to be fleshed out a little more.
