I read the sample pages, and they really enticed me in. Sounds like a thrilling story, and the knowledge of the setting was very impressive. I was already very intrigued by the book, and your review made me even more so. Thank you.

I'm not sure this is one for me. Its not a genre I normally read but I also wonder about how the author has drawn the characters. There is a fine line between characterization and stereotyping. Thanks for the review.

This sounds like one of those novels which are both well written and scarily pertinent in today's society. This adds an element of reality which makes a plot like this even more terrifying.

I don't usually read these types of espionage thrillers, but this one sounds pretty amazing. It certainly seems very relevant to our times. Thanks for your insightful review!

I'm not a huge reader of political thrillers but it definitely seems like the author did his research and talked a lot about international relations. Congrats on BOTD.

This is a very professional and well done review. I can tell that this book was well read, understood and researched. This book seems to bring different interest topic to light, including double standard when it mentions how they criticize Americans but still want their children to study in America's best universities. Interesting point.

The story plot of a top Hamas leader assasinated in dubai sets the thriller to a different level. Congrats on being the BOTD.?
