Will Nueva Cordova become a reality?
Praise for The Wall:
“We were impressed with The Wall . . . Using a fascinating and sophisticated blend of socioeconomic and humanitarian issues, author Tetsuo Ted Takashima gives readers much to think about within an otherwise entertaining action thriller.” —Best Thrillers
“The Wall is a powerful story of nation-building and changing hearts and minds. It will prove an attractively absorbing saga for any thriller reader who likes politics embedded in the actions and changing purposes of leaders and followers. The close inspection of the roots and minds of refugees creates an added dimension of understanding not present in most other genre reads.” —D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
“. . . earnest mash-up of politics and espionage set in the near future . . .” —Publishers Weekly
