Format: Mass Market Paperback
R.Karl Largent has once again taken the genre of techno-thriller to two capital 'T's. If you haven't read THE JAKARTA PLOT, do it now. If you haven't read R. Karl, where have you been? You've missed one of the best.
THE JAKARTA PLOT captures the characters so well that I feel, regardless of nationalities, I know them well enough to invite them to dinner at my house (provided the bad guys are securely cuffed and hobbled). The writing in this novel is alive. I can touch the places, especially the room where all my friends could live or die at the capricious will of the Communists; I can smell the odor of Java and our President's cologne, and see into the dark hearts of the terrorists. Their threats bounce in my head and against my ears.
It's all so real. Maybe it really happened. Maybe it's happening now.

Very little drama in this story. The author failed to deliver a sense of crisis. The characters were not very captivating and some of the situations were not very credible. Several run-on sentences also made for a bumpy read.

Karl is the greatest fiction writer of all time....after all he is the one who managed to fit 5 people on an AH 64 Apache. Anyone who can do that must be the best writer in the world...WHAT A JOKE
