Nothing like a little inside information to help a plan come together.

This was very nicely done. I had to laugh. Despite the frightening thought that such a plan seems almost within reach.

It's a thin line between a patriot and a terrorist. It gets a vote from me.

Great flash, very neat and concise and a complete package. Politics???What the hell, might as well vote to while I'm here.

This is a great political thriller! I was on the edge of my seat as I read it, wondering what would happen next. You have a real knack for this type of writing. I hope you will write more stories like this one.

I could envision this book as a longer tale; even a full novel. It has all the elements needed: intrigue, suspense, mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was rooting for Steven.

As always...well presented. 'Watched' it as if it were a movies.
I just wish I could know who we the bad guys and the good ones.
Left me with unanswered questions.

Funny what a ditz "certain readers" can be :)
You've created a concise, marvelously plotted little story, Glen. I'm so glad to have "discovered" it was written as Flash! Everything develops smoothly, ending with me really empathizing with Steven. Great, unexpected ending, too!
