5.0 out of 5 stars A unique addition to the genre. Sold to aid a veterans' charity., 27 Nov. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghost Circuit (Paperback)
A percentage of the sales of this book go to the charity 'PTSD Resolution'. I don't normally read thrillers, let alone comment on them, but this book is quite unusual. Firstly, the author has a very interesting and unusual background on which he has drawn to create the story. Secondly, the work itself, while fictional, hints at the sort of things that the author came across in his own life. It is markedly different from the usual material in this genre. Thirdly, whereas the average action novel sticks to the usual template of `good versus bad', this work is more sophisticated in inviting us to ask some questions about the relations between corporate interests, political influence and the role of the military abroad.

There are also some other subtleties, such as the lead character's link to Asia which suggests further books.
I am giving it five stars because there are so many action novels out there but their readership would be better served if they read something like this, where the author has experience of what he's writing about, and where there is greater thought applied to the issues explored in the narrative.
