4.0 out of 5 stars Action Adventure at it's best, 11 Feb 2007
This review is from: Rage (Paperback)
From an author I'd never come across, this was a surprising discovery for me. Given to me as a birthday present, the little sticker on the front comparing it to Michael Ryan did not initially endear me to it.

However after reading the first chapter, I was immensly glad I stayed with it.

A combination of action adventure, mystery and thriller all rolled into one, this was a difficult book to put down. The fast moving plot, and a lead character that is gradually introduced as the story unfolds, draws you into the plot.

Set during the time of the second Gulf War, this is a different take on your typical wartime adventure. Obviously written by someone with more than a passing knowledge of modern warfare (the author is a former army officer), the plot line gradually draws you, the reader into a dark and at times graphic journey into the horrors of war- both for civilians and combatants alike.

An excellent effort for what is a fairly jam packed genre, and well worthy of your money. Forget the comparison to Michael Ryan et all, this stands head and shoulders above them.
