Review quote

"Is there anyone who can write this kind of book better than Larry Bond? I don't think so. He is the master of the techno-thriller. More than that, he always gives me something to think about. I may be repeating myself when I say he's done it again, but folks, he's done it again." --William Martin, "New Yok Times" bestselling author of "City of Dreams ""The technothriller has a new ace and his name is Larry Bond." --Tom Clancy, bestselling author of "Without Remorse" "Action on every page. Maybe in every paragraph." --"Kirkus Reviews "on "Larry Bond's First Team" "[A] fast-paced, complex thriller." --"Publishers Weekly" on "Larry Bond's First Team: Angels of Wrath""" "No writer living can produce the depth of political intrigue like Larry Bond." --Clive Cusslershow more
