Description - Cobweb by Neal Stephenson
The Gulf War is imminent and there s something mighty strange going on in the Agriculture Department of East Iowa University. When an Arab student turns up drunk and dead in the lake, redneck Deputy County Sheriff Clyde Banks gets a feeling he s on to something big. It s a suspicion shared by low-ranking CIA agent Betsy Vandeventer. Betsy s pretty big too having once been a farm girl from Idaho. But before two great minds yell conspiracy theory, in steps top US policy-maker James Millikan. Here s a man well used to dictating the Middle East s future from a comfortable seat at a top Paris restaurant. While shenanigans in the Midwest might not be exactly his style, there s a technique that serves America well in all matters of national security. It s called the Cobweb , and it backfires every time.
