A simply stunning tale from Tal Bauer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m not really sure what to say about this book, especially considering that Tal wrote it in less than a month after his readers gave him the trope in his Facebook author group.
It is incredibly detailed, a fascinating and quite heartbreaking tale about Africa and the wars, colonialism and corruption which have caused such misery across the continent.
It’s also a tale about heroism, about doing the right thing even though it may cost you your life. It’s about finding love in the unlikeliest of places and it’s about international cooperation to prevent a disaster of unimaginable consequences.
I adored it and couldn’t put it down once I started reading. The adrenaline rush to the finish had my heart pounding.
ETA: I also forgot to mention in my rush to get my review done in time, that it was a refreshing change for both the main heroes of this narrative to be men of colour. Elliot is an African-American Navy SEAL Lieutenant and Ikolo is a Congolese man who has returned to his strife-ridden country as a medical doctor.
