A fascinating exposé highlights the interrelationships between the Saudi royal family and Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. The account focuses on both their political and business dealings. These close ties help explain the virtual lack of response to many signals before 9/11 and raise serious questions about many of the administration's actions, or lack thereof, in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. Aided by another outstanding performance by George Guidall, the narrative is startling and more interesting than any political novel; it leaves the reader wondering where the Bushes' loyalties truly lie. Guidall's presentation, including his ability to convey Unger's and others' concerns, enhances the book's comprehensive research. For example, English and Arab names flow so smoothly that listeners will take for granted the enormous preparation necessary to read so flawlessly.
