This political thriller has too little tech. The main character is introduced to an exciting technology called MHD, allowing the author to wax poetic about his favorite unrealized dream. While I enjoyed that, I really didn't like the main character, who wonders too often who is having sex with whom. Most of the characters were caricatures, and portraying Indian gambling as run by the Mob doesn't fit.

I ended up abandoning this book.
