I'm enjoying reading this superb thriller by Bill Harlow. I'm half way into the book and loving the characterizations. Schmidt brothers, one a White house press secretary in Washington, the other a maverick destroyer captain in the Mediterranean.. Terrorists and high tech. It's written in 1999. Ghaddafi is still alive and some of the background I didn't know about Libya comes clear in the novel. I really want to go to the south of France for a vacation now too. Capt. Bill Harlow was 25 years in the Navy and Chief of Public Affairs for the CIA. Now that makes a real kind of authority to attach to a decidedly talented writer. Enjoying Circle William so much I definitely plan to see if Bill Harlow has written anything more recent. I suspect his take on matters will keep the air of authenticity. I hope his characters continue too as other heros of the sea have like Richard Bolitho.
