a novelist over the thirty odd years since he wrote this book - not even sure that he deserved to - but "Frontiers of Fear" is worth a read.
It's a rattling good thriller (yes, I know there are a fair number of
these!) but he does the atmospherics of the North West Frontier pretty
well and, writing just before the collapse of communism, there is
an unintended Alice in Wonderland ambience to this book.
The Taliban, created as far as I am aware, by the Americans in partnersip
with Pakistan, are the good guys, fighting with great heroism against the
Evil Empire - the Soviet Union. And of course, as the author would probably have not quite been aware at the time of writing - the "good guys" won. . .with the usual unintended consequences that adversely affected half the population of Afghanistan (in particular the female half) together with the everyday lives of most of Joe Public in the West ever since.
As Alice found out some hundred years before Mr. Rumsfeld, there are
many knowns that it would have been better remain unknown. As I'm
sure it would not cost a fortune to pick up a copy of "Frontiers
of Fear", grab hold of a copy and enjoy the action - in this instance viewed throughwhat today does appear a particularly skewed prism . . .
Why only 4 stars? Well, the intimate scenes were poorly scripted and would have best been left out. I would have thought that the "tarred rope" scenario is worthy of the award for the worst sex scene of the year!
I look forward to reading more of his work and despite the negative comment, recommend it a a good holiday read.
