Publisher's Summary

Fortress is America's guarantor of freedom, an orbiting arsenal of laser weapons and nuclear missiles. It was considered impregnable - until now. Former CIA officer Tom Kelley is sent to learn the secrets surrounding a dead alien found in Turkey and discovers a maze of lies and treachery that could transform America's shield into an engine of global terror.

Sounded Great in Synopsis, but not as a book

Nothing could totally save this rather juvenile book, although by juvenile I certainly don't mean YA, but great narration helped. Still, for a retired professional killer, our hero is rather a, well, powder puff. Capable of having great sex right after a shooting right next to the crime scene, he nonetheless sweats buckets over all sorts of things which I hope I would have found more fascinating than terrifying. The story was just too uneven, and the ending a true MEH. If you want to try Brin, don't start here.
