Decline in interest shown in Google trends report for OCMJEA certification and its primarily due to Oracle mandating that people attend their course (which are very expensive - the cheapest one was $1950 for 3 days of Java EE 6 training conducted from India over the live web session). I wish Oracle pays heed to the developer communities and does not force them into paying for Java training but may consider upping the price for the certification by a bit.

Jeffery Archer excels as usual in this book by keeping it a fast paced thriller with some good dose of suspense. The story is about a CIA director trying to save her reputation at stake for ordering an assassination in Columbia, and in order to do so, she must get rid of the CIA agent who carried out her order for the assassination in Columbia, and how that agent, who was an american hero, saves himself and his family eventually.
