What's the Green Rust??
What's his plan ????
And why he has sudden interest in the well being of a girl??
You'll have to read the book for finding out the answers.

It was an entertaining read. There were two plots in the book and they kept me intrigued. I liked the book but i felt the end part of the book lacked some luster as compared to the rest of the book. In all it was an engrossing and entertaining read.
I also liked the weapon that Van Heerden has devised.I felt it was a unique and intelligent thing that a villain had devised for bringing a country to its knees and without much bloodshed.
Recommended for people who like detective fiction and one looking for a quick read.
