Violent action, well written, brilliant characters and an excellent story. Not for the faint hearted or squeamish.

A very fast read and very violent. But a good book.

Good yarn

An interesting story where the characters were well developed and the plot kept the reader turning the pages. I would recommend.

After attempting to read this drivle, I need to create a new shelf called "Couldn't Finish".

There might be a decent plot in here, I wouldn't know as I couldn't get beyond the first five chapters. The massacre at the IDP camp and other violence didn't bother me at all, but everything else about this book did.

The writing is sloppy and crude. (Just one example: constantly referring to all the characters by their first name doesn't make them more "real", it's just irritating.) I was also irritated b

Action thriller based on the abuse of power in volatile, war torn and famine ridden Somalia. Spares none of the awful reality of the situation.

I don't think I enjoy it at all cos this people wont even dought a second to kill at sight imagine and that really affects the others who are trying to raise orphans and for those who help with the aid I mean it's really unfair that's why all the Somalian aint the same cos of people like these which I'd call soft hair in the way next generation can't grow with guns in their ears everyday till the day of judgement will pray if God might show them some change intheir lives amen!

Not believable. One of those "classic" thrillers where the hero keeps getting captured and escaping from the bad guys. The head bad guy is a psychopath who has no problem shooting Interpol agents in Paris train stations but keeps capturing the "hero" who is the only person he seems to meet without killing immediately. Uggg.
