Where exactly is the ultimate power within the United States? Does it lie with the president, the Supreme Court, or Congress? What would happen if any two of these decided to go head to head on an issue of worldwide import? Huston’s military thriller tackles these questions, using a terrorist attack on a U.S. merchant ship as its starting point. Adams Morgan jumps enthusiastically into the fray, racing through the fast-moving text with exactly the right nuances of pacing and characterization. His various politicians and commandos are easily distinguishable but never overperformed. Morgan sounds as impatient to dispatch a romantic subplot as the listener is to get on with the story. This book will easily keep you alert during a late-night drive. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
