And if, when you finish this book, you feel a little tingle running down your spine, don't worry. It probably isn't "Blitz" Krieger's nightscope-equipped rifle tickling along your spine to a bulls-eye between the crosshairs at the back of your head. It's just the pleasant aftermath of a great story, ably told.
Also, I thought the Italian translation Threatcon Delta: Assalto sul pentagono (Italian Edition) was a good one, since I'm fluent in both it and English.
The characters also have that certain quality about them, as though they're larger-than-life portraits of real individuals, possibly special forces personnel whose traits have been drawn upon to create what I believe are some of the most unique and certainly the boldest characters I've come across in years of reading thriller fiction.
I also think it must have taken considerable nerve to write this thiller for the simple reason that a great deal of the plot devices seem to be almost a how-to guide to both exploiting the Pentagon's soft spots and using the assault as the cornerstone of a master plan for the cyber-criminal extortion of billions of dollars in untraceable funds. Of course, they didn't get away with it in Threatcon Delta, but in real life ... who knows? It certainly makes you think. Anyway, a really exceptional book. Alexander deserves applause for writing it.
