It was the deal of the decade, if not the century. A small, insignificant company on the edge of bankruptcy had discovered an alchemist's dream; a miraculous polymer, that when coated on any vehicle, was the equivalent of 30 inches of steel. With bloody conflicts surging in Iraq and Afghanistan, the polymer promises to save thousands of lives and change the course of both wars. 

Jack Wiley, a successful Wall Street banker, believes he has a found a dream come true when he mysteriously learns of this miraculous polymer. His plan: enlist the help of the Capitol Group, one of the country's largest and most powerful corporations in a quick, bloodless takeover of the small company that developed the polymer. It seems like a partnership made in heaven...until the Pentagon's investigative service begins nosing around, and the deal turns into a nightmare. Now, Jack's back is up against the wall and he and the Capitol Group find themselves embroiled in the greatest scandal the government and corporate America have ever seen...

    " Started out at 100 m.p.h. and never slowed down. Great thriller, cover to cover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 2/15/2014

    " Excellent; firm famous for buying up and ripping apart companies for maximum profit, gets an offer it can't refuse from a man who puts them onto a company that looks like it has a paint that will protect vehicles from explosions "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 2/8/2014

    " This one starts out with the death of a GI in Iraq from and IED that takes out the Humvee he was riding in. He was just weeks from ending his tour and returning to his wife and twin daughters. Jump now to Washington DC where Jack Wiley a hot shot equity trader is being vetted by a big firm called the Capitol Group. They a at the top of the heap when it comes to buying companies in trouble and turning them around or decimating them for a profit. Their management is made up of many ex military and politicians with a nose for and big appetite for money. Jack as come to them with an proposition, he knows of a small chemical company that has fallen on hard times and is ripe for a buyout and it seems they have discovered a unique material that when painted on vehicles makes them invulnerable to bullets, missiles and bombs. The Group sees lots of dollar signs and works to gobble up the company and make a killing with the paint. What happens next is a battle of wits, extreme skullduggery, illegal acts and more. But that is what makes this a good read, so I won’t divulge any more of the story, but let you find outr for your self what transpires. "

    " This is the kind of book that you sometimes read just to see how it ends. It didn't take long to read, but the plot became quickly unbelievable, the writing was cliched all along, and yet I finished it to see if it would end the way I thought it would. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jim | 2/7/2014

    " Did not like this book at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tulsi | 1/4/2014

    " Very poor writing, but ver good story telling "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick F. | 1/3/2014

    " I loved all of Haig's Sean Drummond novels- they were exciting and very witty- this book was very exciting and not witty but rather a severe and angry indictment of the way politics works(or doesnt work) the corruption, the utter lack of ethics in DC- I found it very scary as Haig -son of the Late Alexander Haig- certainly must know of what he writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 12/20/2013

    " Shame about his parentage! But I really enjoyed this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim Hatcher | 12/19/2013

    " I missed the first person wit that I'm used to in Haig's books. This one went on and on. It was a good story with twists and intrigue, but it failed in the telling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennica | 12/17/2013

    " Interesting, kept my attention. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Concetta | 12/9/2013

    " Started out good but the end took a predictable turn. There wasn't really an excitement at the end and I was left wondering what had happened. Did they go to jail, did the army lose lots of soldiers when the thing stopped being super effective? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 8/31/2013

    " This isn't Sean Drummond but a good read anyway! Haig is a great writer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 6/25/2012

    " Interesting read. Gave me a view into corporate America that I had never considered before. Makes me feel a little bit queasy that there might be that much shifty behavior going on. Enjoyed the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 2/19/2012

    " This is a relevant triller on corporate greed,corrupt government officials and the heartbreak of war. Fast paced with fascinating characters it is well structured and written. The author has a background in government and all political junkies I feel will enjoy this book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 3/27/2011

    " As a an idea/milleau book it was a four star, but the lack of realistic character and, well, reality
    was a bit too much and watered it down. The revenge plot had too many far-fetched elements that just wouldn't work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ssnyc | 3/10/2011

    " Fun read for a thriller...seems like it could be all too true. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 11/10/2010

    " Brian Haig's legal-military Drummond series are among my favorite books, but the plot in this latest book really seemed forced. Premise was good, but the characters weren't developed, and the plot really didn't mesh (at least it seemed so to me). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 11/7/2010

    " A very interesting and scary book about the games played by the power-brokers of the world. Makes you think about how the financial markets (as well as politics and wars) are manipulated by a few. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Archie | 11/2/2010

    " While I have always liked Haig's books, this one was pretty average. "
