    I read this book and highly recommend it. This book was very prophetic of the Fast and Furious debacle. I only wish more Congressmen would read this book and put 2 and 2 together to see how easy something like this book could happen. Fast and Furious is only prelude.

    QS: I am curious, however, how this works. Wouldn't Bracken be losing money the more people downloaded his book for free, due to decreased demand in the market?

    I read the book already, but it's nice to have on the PC too.

    I was pleased to see a free Kindle for PC app on the Amazon.com website.

    I need the large print version anyway, so reading on the PC is easier.

    I have a signed copy of the book. I bought it when it first came out. I just got the free kindle version just so I can read it again without damaging my book.
  11. Thanks! Will start reading it as soon as possible!

    Matter of opinion. Free publicity is always welcome to writers. (I speak as a writer, of course[stirpot])

    I read it some time ago. It had a few issues, but the next two books are much better.

    Any way you get to read Brakken's books they are worth it.
    Best thing is as you can 'read into' the story and observe the events in today's political climate...as was said before it will pi** you off. The series is very good at bringing you into the lives of the main players. All in all, all are good with #2 & #3 being the best.
    Matt Bracken's most recent book 'Castigo Cay' is a different series start. New characters & storyline but a good read for the action/adventure fans.

    Dammit Quig! Now I have all three....lol! Like I had time to read them.....officially addicted. Staying up late at night, telling myself just another page...lol. Just started the third one. Good thing I had a four day weekend. Now....back to "Foreign Enemies".

    I have to admit, I love my iPhone so I can read a few pages whenever I get the chance without dragging a paperback around with me.

    He may lose a little $ at first, but then he has repeat customers for his other work AND every download free or paid goes towards his download count (i.e. "popularity)

    Darn...Matt's books are good and I only have them on paper...sorry I missed this. Now I'll have to pay for all 3...

    Yes! I didn't realize the other books created a trilogy. Of course this makes sense....you get hooked on one and you want more.

    I gotta admit though, it will be a while before I buy the other two. The first one, while very good, pissed me off so bad that I dreaded reading it....same reason I don't watch the news. It's just too close to reality. Plus...the ending was very 19th-century Russian in literary terms.
