Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Debut A first thriller that keeps the pages turning: Schiele delivers non stop action but with a twist on the stock hero: Diegert is not only a killing machine but a conflicted and reluctant pawn. We get a good sense of place as Diegbert moves through various world hot spots, and an awareness of the world's--and America's--current challenges inform the plot. The "baddies" goals, while fictional, fall into that uneasy realm of " maybe this could actually happen" A very decent debut
