I enjoyed reading Project Needlenose. Author David. W. Zacharias created a story that focused on a colorful cast of characters. Every detail balanced perfectly with the pace of the story and held my attention from start to finish. The transition from each point of view was seamless. I liked the glossary and floor plans that were presented at the beginning of the book, which made it easy to envision what every character was perceiving. The impact of the top-secret Tap Interface Vehicle (TIV) earmarks a change in the way the National Security Administration could use intel in real time. Northside Engineering responsibility included designing, building, and testing the TIV. Due to missing a deadline, the team has four weeks to have a completely operational TIV or risk profit and job cuts. The Deputy Project Manager, Vicky Ambrose, brings over three current workers to assist in getting Needlenose ready. Chief Engineer, Mark Wilson, is responsible for overseeing the departments are running fluidly. With the three new workers: Karen Bream, Scott Fishman, and Theresa Moore, the confidentiality of the entire project is reinforced with a formal meeting. Meantime, he has no idea that the project has already been compromised. Where is the leak? Is it on the submarine that will deploy the TIV? How do the Russians know that there is a communication tap? Is one of the current workers a spy? To find out whether Needlenose is successful or starts an International War, Project Needlenose is a must-read. I can guarantee the suspense built will keep you glued from start to finish.
