I also found the author to have done a lot of research on the military, crime and police networks. so if you like action and thriller this is your book. It kinda feels real, it has modern social references too which creates an atmosphere and mood. Makes you think about society to a degree as well
The characters are believable, the plots are believable, and they are well written.
I can't get enough of them really.
Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.
What does frustrate me with Mr Leather's books is the need for proof reading and/or effective editing. This one was no exception. I really doubt a Taliban leader 'christened' his daughter anything. Nor that the said Taliban leader had a milky pupil as mentioned twice. A milky iris sure enough. Then towards the end the use of 'their' instead of 'there'.
To me, this distracts from the story as the grammar nerd inside me cringes. Please Mr Leather, hire some-one better.
On this outing he's minding a Russian Oligarch with a price on his head, tracking down a Taliban adversary with some old mates including one who's turned into an alky and another who's turned Pattaya based drug baron.
As he always does Steve's hit the mark with True Colours, if you want a good honest blokey thriller, this is the book for you.
If you'd like to lift the lid a bit more on what goes on in Thailand try Last Seen in Bangkok
