ESPIONAGE & SPY THRILLER. The events of September 11, 2001, the invasion of Iraq, the threat of radical Islamists, an impending showdown with Iran--what do these things have in common? Oil. And the world is running out. The Shell Game is far more than a thriller; it is a cautionary tale that exposes the next 9/11 event, a deception that will lead to a retaliatory chemical weapons strike on Iran and the terrorist elements that the regime supports. Though written as fiction, this novel is filled with all-too-real details provided by insiders in the oil industry, military, and Middle Eastern affairs and extrapolates from real events of the past and present a future that will lead us down a path of self-destruction, unless we stop the insanity now.In 2007 two CIA spooks meet with an American colonel in military intelligence.… (mehr)

A fantastic read - very fascinating. Steve Alten writes very professionally about various problems perceived globally. I am not certain whether he is factually correct in all claims he makes in his books but there are no obvious and painful inconsistencies or fallacies; after all, this is still a fiction book. It makes one think hard about the storyline, eventually becoming fully immersed in it. The pace is fast, not boring, and all facts (or quasi-facts) seem necessary and not overbearing. The Shell Game is a fine example of why Steve Alten is rising high in my private list of my favourite authors. ( )

One of the best books I've read this year. It was very fast paced, and action packed like all Steve Alten books. This one was quite frightening though, in that it could very easily happen with the road our government is on. This book was written back in 2007 or 2008 and some of the stuff that he wrote about is coming true. The most disturbing part of it is the actual quotes at the beginning of each chapter that actual real government officials have said. The book is a work of fiction, but is also based on a lot of fact. Take it as a cautionary tale of what could happen if we keep on the road that we are on, with corrupt politcians and corporations that have their own interests at hand instead of the good of the country and planet.

Año 2007, la guerra va mal, y el presidente Bush se niega a dar marcha atrás. Mientras tanto, la carrera nuclear iraní producirá uranio enriquecido en unos cinco años. Un uranio que podrá ser utilizado para fabricar cabezas nucleares. El Ejército de EEUU está demasiado desgastado para invadir Irán y no tiene respaldo para un ataque nuclear sin que haya provocación previa del mismo calibre. Si se produjera un ataque nuclear a una ciudad norteamericana, tendrían justificado el uso de medidas severas. Con ello acabarían con la insurgencia violenta en Irak y conseguirían inmensos beneficios con el petróleo. El coste moral sería impensable, pero el fin podría justificarlo…

This is the single worst book I've read in, oh, 10 years. Every moonbat, conspiracy-theorist government plot known to man is rolled out here. It is clearly bunk that the oil companies are conspiring to keep oil off the market, yet that is here, along with the Grassy Knoll, Dick Cheney as Ruler of the World, and more. If I thought I could get my money back on this book, I would go for it (and I have all the lefty textbooks from college 30 years ago).

How can you be a writer and write a character that is a Lt Commander in the Army? Note to Steve: LT Commander is NAVY. Lt Colonel is Army.

Don't buy it, don't read it...then again, send it to your worst enemy as a peace offering. The time they waste reading it should give you time to sneak up on him and see who really killed Kennedy and Princess Diana. ( )
