Book Reveiw - Holy War by Mike Bond

A War Thriller
Holy War
By:  Mike Bond
Publisher:  Mandevilla Press
Publish Date:  April 1, 2014
 
The war in Beirut is filled with hatred, hostage-taking and passion.  Neill is a journalist on a secret mission for the British MI6 who is searching for Hezbollah terrorist, Mohammed.  Neill is going into Beirut without backup and knows he will be in danger every step of the way.  The British are not the only ones who want to find Mohammed.  French Commando, Andre wants to find him to avenge his brother, Yves, U.S. Marines and French paratroopers that were blown up by Hezbollah.  Rosa is a Palestinian guerilla, who will do anything to save Mohammed as her people feel he is their greatest hope. 
This book takes place in war-torn Beirut.  I found this book to be a very fast paced thriller filled with terror and intrigue.  Because of the nature of this novel and so many vital characters in different countries, you definitely had to pay attention as it switches often from Beirut to political subterfuge in London and Paris.   This is a deep, well-written book about politics and the horrors of war that could only have been written by someone who had first-hand experience. 
 
This is not a book for the faint of heart and it is definitely an adult book. 
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this eBook by the publisher, Mandevilla Press, through NetGalley blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
