"By Presidential Order" is an excellent novel that captured my interest from the beginning, pulled me in, and never once let go! Anthony Anglorus is a writer who knows how to grab and keep our attention! Each scene was riveting, imaginative, and flowed smoothly from one to the next. never a "dull part" where you get bored or want to skip ahead. in fact almost the opposite with the various interweaving plotlines and going from one character and event and time period to the next, from the desert to the moon.
