As the other reviewers have said, i picked this book not knowing exactly what to expect (there is an incredable amount of sci-fi sh** on kindle). while a little slow in spots, he does a fine job. The characters are believable, the science is good, and he writes a believable near future of the U.S.
As the others said, i will not give away the storyline but I do say, buy it and read it. I have been reading sci-fi since the first Ace double book and have a very low cut-off for bad writing. This is good. Buy it, The auther is on my buy list and I wait for the next in the series.
