I read and reviewed the first two books in this three book series-The Metronome and The Great Game. Both of these books do contain historical facts even though The Metronome is written in the past tense-both of the other books are in the future. Politics all over our world is rife with Greed and Dangerous character's. All you need to do is read a newspaper to realize this. So--what would happen if this continues on-that is what these books attempt to discern. Looking forward and hoping it doesn't really happen! The third and last book in this trilogy kind of pulls it all together--the ending will make you think! I still say that all these books can be read as stand alones but there is some overlap and I do suggest you read all 3 and then act accordingly!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
The Outer Circle is the last book in The Counterpoint trilogy. It brings together the characters of The Metronome and The Great Game to conclude their stories.
It’s 2024 and the world is divided, pitting the United States against the combined forces of China and Russia. In China, domestic unrest pushes the leadership to act against Taiwan. In Russia, under the surface a power struggle is brewing. Such is the backdrop of the U.S. presidential elections where the established parties face a challenge from unexpected political newcomers.
The two heroes of The Great Game, now fugitives, discover that not everything is what it seems and someone invisible is pulling the strings behind the scenes. But can they stop the events set into motion before the world slides into a war?

About the Author: (from Bookclubreading.com)
D. R. Bell is a pen name. I grew up in the former Soviet Union, now live in the US with my family and an old beagle. I have graduate degrees in business and engineering and spent many years writing boring technical, business, and legal papers. This is my first attempt at writing fiction and I loved every minute of it.
The Great Game has been influenced by my growing in a communist society, the society that was started with noble intentions – but the end result of good intentions was a nightmare. The rights of individuals were being trampled in the name of the “greater cause”. The calls to equality were masking an advantaged elite gathering wealth at the expense of everyone else. I am not sure all the Americans appreciate how fragile a true democracy can be.
