"Modesitt supports his vision with deep political, economic and cultural
knowledge and speculation, producing a world that actually makes its own
kind of sense. . . . His people are genuine inhabitants of this world,
not transplanted 20th-century souls."
--Science Fiction Weekly on Flash
"This novel doesn't fall into the trap of making futuristic Earth
denizens less than human or creating complicated technology just for
show....Corporate conspiracies, rigged elections and the ubiquity of
advertising are just a few of the issues Modesitt takes on, and he
deftly handles the complicated plot threads."
--Romantic Times on Flash
"A well conceived, suspenseful thriller which also examines an all too
plausible corruption of democracy."
--Chronicle on Flash
"Flash is a classic thriller...Modesitt makes deVrai's daily routines
interesting through his meticulous narrative and when deVrai steps out
of his routine there is plenty of action."
