Samson, the pen name of a university professor, delivers another page-turning, multi-dimensional thriller with a solid background in computers and computer chips. Samson certainly knows his stuff and has researched his subject thoroughly, bringing the reader a better understanding of this high-tech world and how it permeates our lives much greater than we realize.
Few thriller writers can match Samson's ability to deliver a gripping story. In previous reviews, I have compared him to John le Carré and Tom Clancy. He doesn't have the same name recognition or sales, but he is equal to or better than both those authors. His work deserves to be on the New York Times Best Seller list
As in his previous novels in the Homeland Connection series, Samson offers international politics and high-level espionage. The plot twists and exotic international settings in this novel make it a highly readable and entertaining thriller. There is also a powerful parallel story set in World War II that aptly explains the experience and background development of the characters.
I highly recommend this book which arguably may be the best thriller of 2012
