A book I couldn't put down.

Where did this author come from and why haven't we heard about him on television? Harold Thomas Beck is a talent that has been overlooked or ignored. This is not his first book so why haven't we heard of him until now? I found myself thinking the story was real. I did some research. Che Guevara died on the date he dies on in the story. He also died in the same village he dies in in this story. Is it a coincidence or is the author revealing some well kept secret, as is the main story line in this book? You tell me! I could not put this book down. I didn't want it to end. The images created in this story were like sitting in my living room and watching them on television. I was mesmerized. I can only hope there will be more from this author in the future.

What a story!

I began casually reading this book and was hooked by the end of the first page. The story, one that covers forty years and involves the intertwined lives of a small group of people, tempts, entices, and challenges the reader. The characters were all alive for me. I knew each character as if they were friends or family and I found myself living their decisions with them. With so much done about the Vietnam War, this book looms as perhaps the most complete and factual account of our nation during that period in our history. Every other story, as much as it tried to be complete, left something out. Maybe the passage of time was necessary for someone to finally sum the war up as this author has done in such a singular and grand style. I found myself trying to compare Beck to Clancy but he was beyond Clancy. I tried to compare him to other action and thriller writers but he stands alone both in style and in content. The research is outstanding and complete, almost to a fault but as you read, you expect nothing less. This is a compelling story that reads as if it has been taken out of the news. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a story to go on and not end. I can only hope there is a sequel to this story. There has to be more to tell.

This thrilling novel is a cross between The Carpetbaggers and The Hunt For Red October. The title of the book set off against the Pre-September 11 New York skyline, slightly out of focus, is a trick. I loved it! What I thought was going to be September 11th redux, was not! I loved the way the author took me in and out of the Oval Office with Lyndon Johnson, into the Vietnam War, and the jungles of Bolivia. I also loved the women and the way the author made them the center of the story. And what a story! This is a must read. Why hasn't it received the national acclaim it deserves!
