This is a great read. It has such richly drawn characters and plot line that Brian Freemantle, with just one book read, launches himself to the upper limits of my favorite authors list.

A very interesting take on the downside of western civilization's influence across the sea. Jun 28, Rita rated it really liked it. I had a slow interest at first. But it is well written. I need up getting into it and enjoyed it. The dialogues and plots were well developed. It seemed familiar however, maybe another book or books that I have read.
All in all, a very decent book. Jun 01, Nouran Attia rated it liked it. It is interesting , thought it was a bit too long regarding some parts and could have been cut down , but all in all not bad, and I think it would definitely be good as a movie , except you don't get to know the characters that deeply.

This is a darker departure from Freemantle's Charlie Muffin and most of his other novels; as complex and intricate as a chess master playing four championship games simultaneously.
