The first book by Desmond Bagley I read was "Vivero Letter" which was a fantastic tale of action, adventure and suspense which made me an instant fan... Then I had read a couple of his other works and the status stayed. And now, after more than ten years, I've read this one and am happy that I did. Yes, this stands not up to the standard set by the others I've read, but it does not make it dull or uninteresting. The somewhat predictable story line is compensated amply by the non stop action and ...more

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.
