This is simply a brilliant, fast moving, well researched political thriller following terrorists and those battling to defeat them. The story initially follows two main characters, Tom Dupree and Ibrahim – ‘The Sword of Allah’ – initially half a world apart but due to have significant impacts on each other’s lives. Many of the events described could easily be headlines in current news programmes about events in the Middle East, making the book more riveting and the events, however horrendous or traumatic, even more believable. Whilst the stories of the two men initially seem parallel, never to meet, they are destined to be adversaries in this multi-layered thriller that has short but punchy chapters which have their own cliff hangers to keep the reader enthralled and eager to read more. Definitely an author I’ll be looking out for in future bringing to life the political and religious turmoil currently present in Turkey and the Middle East. This is a book you’ll return to re-read, one to keep!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
