Similar to State of Fear (although before it), it highlights the policies (or the lack-of) in US towards foreign governments (especially Japan in this case). Woven with a thrilling script, it makes for a good read.
Interesting plot. Sadly this book was hyped as the novel describing the concern over Japan as an industrial power. Well, Michael Crichton has been gathered to his fathers, and the hype-machine, like a child with AD/HD has turned to another 600 million other issues. Not a bad summer read. The movie with Sean Connery was pretty good too.
A very interesting read in relation to Japanese business culture and how it intersects with American interests. Very dated technology-wise.
