I would have to agree with Steven. This book was very hard to get through because of the ridiculous characters, none of which had any depth or individualism, just stereotypes. I would also add the narrator was horrid. The accents were so bad they were actually hard to understand and distracting from the story. And I mean all of them, American, Chinese, Irish, Arab, even the one character from Mexico who only appears for a few scenes. It made it very difficult to listen to the book and get throough it.

This book is advertised as a spy thriller, terrorism type book in the likes of Flynn, Baldacci etc. It is clearly written by a brit with little or no actual expericence of the United States. The characters are complete stereotypes and cartoons. The president is a dope, the VP is the secret power behind him and the secret CEO of a huge pharma company. The members of the military are all kooks. The one sane and open minded person is a foreigner on the white house staff. The academics are all knowing open minded independent thinkers. They voluntarily work for USAMRID which is a military organization while ridiculing it. Quit if you dont like it. The terrorists are portrayed as these worldy open mined types who pine for the days of all religions getting along. Jesus this book is straight from the Neville Chamberlain school of being an ostrich.
