Jon liked Will's review of Swarm:

The Night Of Knives by Jon Evans
"I have a general policy against reading political thrillers that don't involve Jack Reacher. If Reacher's in the mix, I can be sure that any government intrigue is brought down to a level I can understand (which, if I may step outside Reacher cano..." Read more of this review »

Paul Jon, I was a peace corps volunteer working with the Semuliki Wildlife Reserve and lived in Karagutu, between Fort Portal and Bundidungio. I traveled around the area last year and read The Night of Knives while I did so. I really enjoyed traveling through the Fort Portal area, Bwindi, Kampala and other places while the story unfolded in the same landscape and towns. Thanks for enhancing my travels. Paulo
