Very well-written and obviously well-researched. Cults have been around since time immemorial, but we are facing more sophisticated ones today that specifically target people who see no issue with parting with money they never actually earned themselves. The insidious methods used by recruiters are so subtle that by the time someone may start to question the true intent of the cult, they have already abandoned the belief system that grew up in and willingly ignore the red flags. This was a little different from the typical spy/black ops/thrillers that I normally read, but it gets you hooked and provides insight to hidden societies that prey upon people by isolating them and convincing them this is what they want. The creativity used to weave important puzzle pieces into the story is excellent. Again, one of those books you can’t put down once you get into it.
