Scott's Review:
2 out of 5 stars on June 22, 2000

This book dragged on for much too long. It's essentially about a terrorist group that gets a lovely idea to crash the New York Stock Exchange in an effort to spread terror. As you finally find out very near the end of the book, they do this to get millions of dollars for themselves to make up for wrongs done to them during and after the Vietnam War. The essentially problem with this book is that it spends too much time on the main character, and almost no time on the antagonist till the end of the book. Even then, it never bothers to try and explain what his real motivations are, since you find out that other people directed him. And the ending was just cheesy, it was like watching a movie that you know the script has been cut short to make it just under two hours.
