I really don't like action novels. They are not my kind of books but for those who like them this is a perfect read. The book was surprisingly gory with the first thing being the very accurate description of killing a goat so please be forewarned. I liked the pacing of the book and it was a surprisingly quick read. I was unaware this was part of a series and I think it would have made my experience more enjoyable if I had been more familiar with other books in the series. The author has a very descriptive writing style and I especially liked his descriptions of Africa. I learned that he is South African which probably speaks to his passion for the continent. The book is set in post world war two and that is a period I am very fond of and enjoyed reading about it. I went into this expecting it to be an airport book but I was surprised by how well developed his characters are. I recommend for action fans.
