Guest review by Jacqui Wilson.
“Claymore Straker is trying to forget a violent past. Working as an oil company engineer in the wilds of Yemen, he is hijacked at gunpoint by Islamic terrorists…As the country descends into civil war and village children start dying, Clay finds himself caught up in a ruthless struggle between opposing armies, controllers of the country’s oil wealth, Yemen’s shadowy secret service, and rival terrorist factions…But nothing in this ancient, unforgiving place is as it seems…A stunning debut eco-thriller, The Abrupt Physics of Dying is largely based on true events – the horrific destruction of fresh water and lives by oil giants.”
Think Jack Reacher and then some. This book is adventurous and fascinatingly topical.
The author brings home to us the realities of the world today with themes of global exploitation and discomfort.
Recommended for action thriller fans who’d like to try a bit more realism with the thrills.
Thank you to the publisher for the proof copy to review.
