Very pedestrian and predictable "thriller" from Bagley. At his best he is one of the very best of thriller writers (e.g. The Vivero Letter, Running Blind). But this is just a series of car chases and explosions in exotic locations. I can't help thinking he was maybe hoping to get it picked up as the basis of a film (James Bond is gratuitously mentioned a few times). A very bland book which falls a long way short of the standard I'd generally expect from Bagley.

Recommended to Subrahmanya by: My favourite school teacher Mr.S Chandran
A movie tycoon looses his daughter to drugs & he wages a private war on the drug mafia, this private war is the subject of this novel. It is a racy ruthless story & provides an insight into how the drug industry (cultivation to processing to peddling) works. My school teacher recommended this book to me & I thank him for indirectly educating me (i was in school when I read this & would love to read this again).
Recommendation - high

Desmond Bagley was a British journalist and novelist principally known for a series of best-selling thrillers. Along with fellow British writers such as Hammond Innes and Alistair MacLean, Bagley established the basic conventions of the genre: a tough, resourceful, but essentially ordinary hero pitted against villains determined to sow destruction and chaos in order to advance their agenda.
