Excitement on every page

This is a very well written and fast paced thriller that kept we turning pages long after I should have been in bed. I just kept on, anxious to read about what would happen next to young lawyer Peter Farrell and his former girlfriend Sara. He initially, and then she, accidentally get involved in an intricate plot by a cabal of powerful men to take complete control of the Middle
East. Peter has some documents they want desperately, and are willing to do anything, and kill anyone, to get them back.

There are chase scenes set in Washington D.C., San Francisco and New York City, and a plot to release sarin gas in the NYC subway system. I found the evil characters very well drawn, and even several of the "minor" players receive a brief biography. For a young lawyer with little experience outside of the law, Peter becomes rather deft at eluding his pursuers, which might give some readers pause about that. As I have said in many former reviews, I accept the author's world and characters as he wrote them, so this was not a big problem for me.

Peter faces the question of who he can trust, for it seems as if police and government agencies are chasing him. There are several escapes that can bend the imagination quota a bit, but they just added to the frantic pace of the plot. I understand that this is the first book in a trilogy about Peter Farrell. My wife is in the process of reading the second "The Fall of St. Sebastian" (she really liked this one!), and when she is finished I can't wait to get my hands on it and see what other dangers await Peter Farrell!
