Insecurity. Former Senator and former Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen has written another novel in the thriller genre, this one titled, Blink of An Eye. Packed with clunky writing and acronyms, this novel focuses on the detonation of a nuclear device on U.S. soil, and the rush to retaliate. The protagonist is a National Security Advisor named Sean Falcone, and this character is drawn in the heroic tradition. The plot moves quickly, some of the characters are interesting, and in the back of my mind, the insider knowledge of Cohen made me shiver even more that the plot required. Readers who like thrillers and can overlook some weak writing are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Two-star (Mildly Recommended)
