SAVAGE TIDE - Greg Barron
After finding a surprising amount to like about the first of Marika Hartmann novels, I was much quicker to pick up the second book SAVAGE TIDE.
Normally I quite like political thrillers, but this one wasn't for me.
The second race-against-time thriller from the author of ROTTEN GODS, in the tradition of le Carre, Ludlum and Clancy.
Intelligence officer Marika Hartmann captures an extremist foot-soldier guilty of a massacre of school children and aid workers in Southern Somalia. Renditioned to a CIA ′black site′ in Djibouti, the prisoner hints at a terror plot in the making.
Marika and ex-Special Forces colleague PJ Johnson team up to investigate, uncovering a cold-blooded conspiracy that will decimate the cities of the West.
From the refugee camps of East Africa to the azure waters off the Iranian coast, the marshes of Iraq to Syria′s parched eastern desert, SAVAGE TIDE is a manhunt, a quest for truth, and a desperate search for the legacy of a cruel regime bent on dominating the world.
