Green Man
Ever been on one of these holidays to an exotic location where the group members (apart from yourself of course) seem pretty odd? And where they start to misbehave as soon as they are free from the leash of normal life? And where you keep trying to persuade yourself you are interested in a foreign culture that you don't understand and which secretly bores you?

Martin signed up for an adventurous vacation, but unfortunately he got more than planned. No one in his tour group seems to like him much and it appears that someone may be trying to kill him. This book is Martin's travel journal and is a great read. It will make you feel suspicious of everyone you meet on your next tour group or cruise. The only complaint that I had about the book was that the ending seemed very abrupt, but overall I loved it.

I enjoyed trying to figure out what was going to happen next and who was causing so much trouble on Martin's vacation. I agree with the previous review that the ending was a bit abrupt, but I didn't really think the person who "did it" would be the person at all, so that was definitely a surprise.
