    Just finished it last night. "The Day After Tomorrow".

    No, it doesn't have anything to do with that stupid ass global warming movie.

    Anyone else read it?

    It starts out with this dude spotting the guy who killed his father and kicking his ass. By the end it's an international conspiracy that will blow your mind.

    If you can find it, you might like The Berkut by Joseph Heywood.

    I've heard a few people say that was good. I tried reading it and got annoyed after like 30 pages. Maybe I should try again :think:
