MIKE BOND has been called the “master of the existential thriller” by the BBC and “one of the 21st century’s most exciting authors” by the Washington Times. He is a bestselling novelist, environmental activist, international energy expert, war and human rights correspondent and award-winning poet who has lived and worked in many remote and dangerous parts of the world. His critically acclaimed novels depict the innate hunger of the human heart for what is good, the intense joys of love, the terror and fury of battle, the sinister vagaries of international politics and multinational corporations, and the beauty of the vanishing natural world.

Hi Micielle,

Thanks for the note. If you like The Last Savanna, you might like Saving Paradise. If you like straight thrillers, you might like Tibetan Cross or House of Jaguar.
Please keep in touch.

Goodbye Paris by Mike Bond
"This was so strange reading as the cathedral was destroyed: sometimes fiction is stranger than Truth! Again a book that makes you wonder WHAT is happening to the world as we know it? Scary, with the way things are."
Goodbye Paris by Mike Bond
"Another enthralling story by Mike Bond. This one is based in Paris and centres around the Islamist infiltration of the city. Some great characters and suspense and tension all the way through. Great read."
Goodbye Paris by Mike Bond
"I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley. This was quite an intense thriller and it definitely kept me reading! It is full of twists and shocks. I highly recommend this novel."

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Why in the morning is there so much hope? And in the evening only fatigued”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“The wind from the east over his shoulder carried the tang of drying murram grass and the scents of bitter pungent shrubs, of red earth and brown earth of old scat and stones heating in the midafternoon sun.”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“These steel monstrosities screamed night and day, blotted out the starlit skies and Northern Lights with flashing red strobes, slaughtered thousands of bats and entire flocks of birds banished tourism and wildlife, made people sick and drove them from their now-valueless homes.”
Mike Bond, Killing Maine

“The eastern savanna shifted from charcoal to deep purple; to the west a feverish orange moon sank into the Kiambu Hills.”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“Already this sun was pouring its wrath into the blue Indian ocean where swordfish and marlin cruised like silver-blue attenuated warheads in their green-gold depths...”
