Wow! What a great way to raise awareness of modern-day issues through a lifelike fiction novel! Sounds like the book might be a bit crude for sensible people like myself, but definitely seems like you enjoyed the read!

The review was done in such a way that leave me no choice, will be reading the book in the future, although I am not a fan of any political back ground. Well done.

Uri and Lara's series have a way of enlightening us on some of the most sensitive terrorism issues that are still going on in the world of today. I like it. Nice review.

Terrorism is deadly when it is promoted by religious views. I appreciate how writers reflect the society through crafty storytelling. Thanks for the review

What a book, what a book, thriller I would say, Shows winnick has a grabs of the middle east, more so, why does this remind me of a TV series , Awesome book , awesome. The way this ended though, I hope he hasn't finished this as a series because I think he still has a lot more to tell. Bravo

From a sampling, this seems like an interesting thriller/mystery story following two anti-terrorist government agents in pursuit of an individual that attacked a preschool in California. It might be worth a second look. Well done.

I agree with the author's view that, although it is a work of fiction, it deals with the actual world events.The world today is full of scary wars due to power struggle and religious differences! Congrats BOTD!

I love the fact that the novel has strong ties to historical events that are not fiction with great geopolitical outlook. This episode of Uri and Lara series is very relatable. Great review.

This book sounds like a fascinating read. A crime thriller with a splash of international affairs. What's not to love?! Lara sounds like a very interesting character. Thanks for the great review. :D

I think that this suspenseful book will be a great read. While I do prefer to read a series in order, this one might make the skip worthwhile. Congratulations on book of the day!

This book sounds very appropriate for the time we are living in. The issues that are presented in this review are not only a key factor for politics nowadays but are also a debate in many cultural points of view. I am not sure I would read the book, mainly because it is not my favourite genre, but it definitely sounds amazing.
