Description

When four young volunteers in Kenya decide to take a break from working at a Somali refugee camp, they pile into a Land Cruiser for an adventure. But they get more than they bargained for when they are kidnapped. They wake up in a hut, hooded, bound, no food or water. Hostages.

John Wells is asked to try to find them, but he does so reluctantly. East Africa isn’t his usual playing field. And when he arrives, he finds that the truth behind the kidnappings is far more complex than he imagined.

The clock is ticking and the White House is edging closer to an invasion of Somalia. Wells has a unique ability to go undercover and stir things up, but if he can’t find the hostages soon, they’ll be dead—and the U.S. may be in a war it never should have begun.

    Hard to stop reading- I lost a few hours of sleep with this one. Very solid action beginning to end and all-in-all quite believable. The only thing I wish was different - or more like added - was to keep the story going another chapter or two explaining the whole aftermath in more detail. I feel this way with most all these type of books, that is they end too quickly, without resolving some of the storylines. Regardless definitely give it a thumbs up. Recommend.

    Not my favorite John Wells book, in fact I skimmed through the last 100 pages. It was way too unrealistic, no way one man could do w hat he did in this story, plus corrupting the hostages. Save your money.

    As usual a pulse pounding read. John Wells is today's John Wayne.
