Publisher's Summary

An astonishing discovery is made in the remote African republic of Zangaro, one which could change the course of a nation's history forever. But such a discovery cannot be kept secret for long and Sir James Manson will stop at nothing to protect this find. A ruthless and bloody-minded tycoon, Manson immediately hires an army of mercenaries and with this deadly crew behind him he sets out to topple the government and replace its dictator with a puppet president. But news of the discovery has reached Russia – and suddenly Manson finds he no longer makes the rules in this power game. A game in which win or lose means life or death.

Excellent!

narration crystal clear and suitably dramatic. plot and character development rich and satisfying. poignant ending with a very satisfying twist.

most of all the intricate detail and methodology described in mounting a military coup by mercenaries and logistics experts was totally absorbing.

Forsyth rules!

Good story bad narrator

Good story, but the narrator David Rintoul spoiled the book for me. He swallows his words as a sentence gets longer and then he starts whispering. Sometimes he speaks so softly as to be 'in-Audible'. Must be the worst performer in my library.
