Praise for "Flash" "Modesitt supports his vision with deep political, economic and cultural knowledge and speculation, producing a world that actually makes its own kind of sense. . . . His people are genuine inhabitants of this world, not transplanted 20th-century souls."--"Science Fiction Weekly "on" Flash" "This novel doesn't fall into the trap of making futuristic Earth denizens less than human or creating complicated technology just for show....Corporate conspiracies, rigged elections and the ubiquity of advertising are just a few of the issues Modesitt takes on, and he deftly handles the complicated plot threads."--Romantic Times "on "Flash" "A well conceived, suspenseful thriller which also examines an all too plausible corruption of democracy." --"Chronicle" on" Flash" "Flash is a classic thriller...Modesitt makes deVrai's daily routines interesting through his meticulous narrative and when deVrai steps out of his routine there is plenty of action."-"-The Denver Post "

Top Customer Reviews
Modesitt also repeats dialogue constantly and describes the same items constantly. I lost count of the number of times I was treated to the truly gripping description of the 'blue skin-tights and grey vest and shorts of the DSS'.
Finally... the character of Liam Fitzhugh has incredibly awkward dialogue. This is deliberate... it's supposed to be an idiosyncrasy... but it's just stupid.
Oh and the space battles are spectacularly uninteresting.
It deals with a galaxy populated by humans with no sign of other intelligent life anywhere, until a new planet is found in the void between galaxies made by others billions of years earlier, and the impact of this on the various cultures and beliefs, with many similarities to todays issues.
Written in an unusual style, all in the first person and the story is told in a series of short chapters from varying viewpoints, even the enemies. This leads to some overlap with some events covered several times from different angles, but on the whole a different and successful approach.
