This book could be categorized as a counter-terrorist procedural. It goes into great detail about the tracking down of a notorious terrorist hiding in Somalia. While it is, definitely not long on character development, there are some interesting character types: lots of military super-stars, several computer geniuses, an Israeli spy, and the evil terrorist himself - who of course shows a cowardly side. The technology is up-to-the-minute, and the military/political organizations are real. Forsyth is back with another edge-of-your-seat, ready-for-the-big-screen thriller.
