This book is a fast ride. I don't need to read a ton of pages to figure out the
characters. They just pop out by themselves. I give it 5 stars!
(Summary via
"Let us introduce you to Drexel. A deliciously evil genius who only desires a few simple 
things out of life. World domination through his androids, and oh ... total enslavement
of mankind. Can he be stopped? Ask the Queen of England." A senator is shoved out of 
an airplane at dawn over the Atlantic Ocean by his android duplicate. Thus begins 
Count Drexel's journey of world domination by secretly replacing every nation's political 
leaders with identical androids, ranging from senators to heads of state, up to and 
including the Queen of England! Drexel's genius and hunger for power knows no bounds, 
and his various plots and schemes are as intricate and as scary as is the fast-paced 
action of the characters revolving around him. Elliott Greenwood, the Vice-President of 
the United States, two Washington Star reporters and their editor, as well as a small 
offshoot of MI5 agents, are the only ones between a one-world government run by a 
madman and freedom for all its citizens as they try to keep Drexel's evil plans in check 
through cunning, courage, and the masterful art of survival.
Drexel is available for purchase on Amazon and other literary venues. For more
