Most writers accounts of travelling to Jamaica revolve around how scared they are to leave the resort without an armed security guard, so full respect to Mr Thomson for travelling not only through Kingston but out to the villages, bringing back reports from a vibrant, colourful and often violent developing world frontline that has all but slipped off most Westerner's radars over the past few decades. entwining culture, politics, music and history, it's an enthralling read. This is real dangerous, on-the edge travel he's doing, not the kind of fake adventurism most travel writers transcribe. Recommended.
