Deadly Odds by Allen Wyler Review-Post

Deadly Odds   by Allen Wyler        Review- Post

      Arnold Gold, a twenty three year old computer genius, is taken over by terrorists after a very unlucky visit to Las Vegas.
      This very suspenseful thriller leaves you on the edge of your seat as he uses his techno skills to get himself out of a deadly mess as the terrorists try to use his knowledge for their benefit. He has to play both sides, which means answering to the FBI also.
       I found this story filled with ingenious twists and turns and quick thinking on Arnold's part to survive this terrible ordeal he is in . Not a dull read indeed!
