A deranged mathematical genius and a relentless photojournalist demonstrate the expertise of Dick Hill in a story that blends the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, the Culpepper Switch, the Information Security Act, Tesla's Tunguska Event of 1908 (the biggest explosion in history), and globe-trotting to exchange drugs-for-guns-for-diamonds. The exhausting scope of this book is mitigated by Hill's performance. His flat tone perfectly conveys psychopathic musings; his deliberate whine lets the listener experience the frustration of government bureaucrats who are unwilling to see the big picture. Hill's presentation of quantum theory, as delivered by a heavily accented Serbian teacher during a multicourse meal fueled by vodka, reveals a plot that seems all too feasible.
