“Grace's prose recalls Ian Fleming at his most lean, and although the focus is on the ticking time bomb in orbit, he throws in a wealth of technical details and gadgetry to satisfy techno-thriller aficionados. This is a complex story, but Grace keeps the plot clean and streamlined, making this a brisk, enjoyable read.” —Publishers Weekly
“You won't put this one down once you start it. Tom Grace is a masterful plotter. He draws you into his net and doesn't release you until the final sentence.”—Clive Cussler
