Wonderful, engaging first novel, 20 Feb. 2012
Tooth for a tooth is an enthralling and captivating first novel. It deals with important issues, like truth, grief and redemption with subtlety and skill.
The story weaves together the lives of characters from different countries, religions and moral standpoints and I particularly liked the empathetic way in which the reader can identify with each of them, even when their actions may not necessarily be honourable. The depth of the characters is matched by the vivid descriptions of the surroundings of each scene which bring the story to life.
This is a fast-paced novel with plenty of suspense, complexity and unexpected twists. Like an inter-continental thriller by Dan Brown mixed with the detective work of James Patterson.
Treat yourself to this book and you won't be disappointed.
