This is a great book filled with action from prologue to end. It is also a disturbing book because the conditions people in many African and other nations are facing today are the same as in this book.
I have read many news stories and even many years ago another adventure book with a similar hero but it is hard to comprehend what is really going on in some parts of the world today. There is a sentence in the book that explains this well "it's easy to read about the hundreds,but you only have to see one." to make this real.
There is plenty of adventure and even a love story set amid the gruesome circumstances.
