Email this review


Voting and other escapades in a corrupt political system.

After 9/11, when they escape the fate of their officemates by stopping for morning coffee, high-tech wizards Brenda Grant and Daniel Henderson open AllTech, a software company specializing in security and global antiterrorist procedures. Their enterprise draws the attention of the National Security Analysts Agency’s divinely handsome minion Allen Cooper, who asks them to troubleshoot the polling machines to be used in the upcoming presidential election. Meanwhile, a college acquaintance of Brenda’s makes an appointment to see her but dies before she can keep it. AllTech offices in Cairo come under attack, sending Dan off to Egypt, then Istanbul, Rome, Argentina and, finally, New York. Distant oil fields seem to be involved, a new AllTech employee is staying after hours and Dan is nearly killed. Can there be a link connecting these misfortunes? You betcha, and finding it will add more luster to AllTech’s reputation while bringing down not only a billionaire presidential cohort but a president.

An in-flight book you won’t mind leaving on the plane, even if you haven’t finished it. The three authors, accomplished writing pros all, have done far better on their own than they do in this thrill-free thriller.
