I'm not normally a political thriller person, but this sounds very well written, and I love the cover. I remember seeing this one under review options, and it really does look like a good book. Great review!

When somebody writes a piece that incorporates their wide experience, then it definitely increases the interest of the readers. As the author has used his journalist experience in this book, I'm sure it would be worth reading.

Thank you for a great review. I read the sample and found it very interesting. I do like to have at least one important female in the story. At this time I have a long list of books on my to read list and this does not sound like a book I would want to pursue.

The book "Desert Hunt" is definitely worth a 4 out of 4 stars though the progress is slow but I know it is part of the author's uniqueness in writting. Nicely reviewed makes you anticipate of what will happen to amin.

A book really gets an edge if it is well researched

Desert Hunt by K S R Menon is a nice thriller about terrorism, conspiracies, & espionage. I cannot wait to read this suspense about Dubai and the Middle-East.

It's interesting to know that there's an element of sensitivity and fairness of characterization in a plot as complex as this. I've read some fictions in this kind of genre and I found some situations that can really be misleading and may trigger misunderstandings. It's good that you've mentioned that this is well researched. Thanks for this thoughtful review!
