First of all, great review!! To the author, congrats on book of the day! I am very interested in this read! Some espionage novels don't click well with me because they don't seem well researched at times. I think that can be said with any genre. But I am so glad that this authors background in journalism helps the novel. I love a good espionage novel!

I want to compliment the author for this story sounds well-researched. Themes in this book such as terrorism and political crimes interest me because they're very realistic. Congrats on #BOTD!

Thank you for the insightful review! A fast-paced thriller in Dubai sounds exciting. It's great that the author created well-rounded characters and that it was easy to keep track of all of them. Too bad about no strong female leads, but I'm glad that this did not affect your enjoyment of the book! Congratulations to the author for receiving such a positive review!

"desert hunt" is a book with so much character and exposure to life in the Middle East. while changing the rules of terror was the major aim, shows that they had more plans within their belt. In this very book the author plays his card here as a vision eye telling in real time the future of the middle easterners. the sensitive perspective of a geopolitical environment that is for sure uncertain but with his heart known as an exotic location but yet so much insecurity.
