Thank you for your review, it's really well written. When I read the sample, the prologue was quite violent for my taste, but reading on despite that proved to be rewarding. You mentioned that some of the themes speak to the humanity of the reader and lead to a self introspection, that sounds like a worthy read.

Fantastic review! I am not a fan of political or conspiracy novels, so I do not believe this book is for me. However, I am glad you enjoyed it!

Great review. I've only read the sample but it's immediately apparent that it's well written and action packed, I'm glad that it continues in the same way.

I don't often pick up thrillers but I do love books about real people. After reading your review I will break out of my normal trend and give this one a shot.

Thanks for the review. From the sound of your review, it seems like you quite thoroughly enjoyed the book! It does sound like it covers every aspect of a mystery/thriller type of book and I am sure many would love the excitement that the book brings.

The themes of the book, both central and hidden, sounds very interesting. The plot is quite relevant today. I can imagine this being made into a blackbuster. Thanks for the great review.

Excellent review! I really enjoyed your comparison to the Iliad at the start. It gives one a different view of what to expect from the book. Thank you for sharing.

Great review! I enjoy reading fast paced page-turners when I want a comfort book to read between much more complex stories, and I especially enjoy stories involving a grand conspiracy. Will check this one out.
