Review of "The Archimedes Signal"

This narrative is based on events in Korea before, during and after the assassination of President Park Chung Hee. The assassination revolved around the yushin constitution which gave Park rule for life and almost total dictatorial powers. General Kim Jae Kyu, the assassin, had his men use stolen M16 arms to kill the president's guards. The events following the assassination reflect the political unrest in country, the racial tension, and the use of torture by the Korean's to obtain certain information. The use of waterboarding and the Korean Barbeque were common. The North Koreans infiltrated the South and used US Air Force personnel to carry out criminal activities supporting the assassination. 3 Stars
