I really enjoyed reading this novel and don't understand some of the harsh reviews which have been published. The author explains at the beginning that the novel was originally written in the 1980s and he has recently updated it for re-release. He goes on to say that when he wrote the original, he was unable to access Cambodia to research the area in detail.

There are two main storylines in this book. Jack, ex-military, is a 'soldier of fortune' who is paid by Ang to rescue his family from the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Meanwhile, Lisa loses her mother and discovers a father who she always believed to be dead. The two stories are very much intertwined and keep you guessing about what will happen in the end. Despite not travelling to east Asia whilst writing the book, the author has described the area in sufficient detail that you get a great sense of place and history. The events in Cambodia and Vietnam in the 1970s would have been recent when the book was originally written and are now historical references. I thought the whole novel was very well written, with great tension throughout, which keeps you turning the pages.

Thank you to NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review. ( )
