" I loved reading this book. It's fast paced from beginning till end, with a bit of surprising turns and twists in the middle. It was very hard to put down and I just wanted to keep going and going. Love the writing style and storyline! "

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
