I really like political conspiracies, so this would be a great book to read. Computer systems crashing, nuclear attacks, it's all very timely subject right now. Thanks for the review!

Awesome review! I remember hearing about this book a while ago and the sample had me hooked. The plot of this novel is exciting and seems action-packed. The hidden themes also sound good. :)

You really made the story sounds interesting and enjoyable. I most particularly like the way the Iliad is brought in to parallel a modern day cyber attack.

Great review. A thriller with a political theme sounds good to me. A mole inside who is it?? Checking it out and congrats on being BOTD.

Political thrillers really aren't in my wheelhouse, but your description of the depths of the characters and themes of the book makes encouraged me to take a second look at the book. Great review!

Thank you for your comprehensive review of Trojan by David L. Wallace. I am an English major and I love stories with a touch of mythology. Themes mentioned such as patriotism, integrity, and love for family would make this an interesting book. To the author, congrats on #BOTD!

The genius and the fool, the terrible and the simple are in every human. That's humanity. From the review I can see Mr Wallace put a finger on the fallibility and capability of man, a daily challenge we need to face and right from those closest to our bosoms. Great work.

I love when the enjoyment of a book more than comes out in a review! This sounds exciting and like a book that is right up my alley. Thanks for the review.
