9781466217577: The Somali Doctrine

A dying man in the desert... A massacre in a refugee camp... A missing aid convoy... And suddenly Interpol agent Jim Galespi is running for his life. THE SOMALI DOCTRINE In The Somali Doctrine, an Interpol agent makes it his mission to stop the remorseless madmen at the helm of the world’s largest NGO. From the deserts of Somaliland to the slums of Nairobi to the plush hotels of Cape Town all the way to the Department for International Development in London, the race is on to stop disaster from striking again. And again. And again. The Somali Doctrine is an intelligent thriller built on years of first-hand experience in the NGO sector in Africa. It brings together excellent writing with a strong plot from one of the most exciting new thriller authors of the year. If you like thrillers by Michael Crichton or Ken Follet, then the Somali Doctrine is for you. What readers have said about James Grenton’s novels: ‘It's the originality of the writing and the strength of the plot that really worked for me. I couldn't put the book down!’ ‘A terrific thriller! I simply couldn't put it down, the action keeps you hooked until the last scene.’ ‘A real page turner - full of action and excitement throughout. I've not read a book so quickly in years!’ ‘I really liked Grenton's first novel, The Somali Doctrine, which I found absorbing and a great read. Black Coke is even better - far superior to the books produced by many of the blockbuster thriller writers. So go ahead and read it. You won't regret it!’ ‘Grenton's characters are certainly made to suffer, but this is a more grown-up affair than Ludlum's Bourne trilogy - probably a reflection of the moral ambiguity of the modern world in contrast to the clear distinctions of the Cold War. There are no forgone conclusions here, and this is not a comfortable ride for the reader; there are some genuinely shocking moments, and it is hard not to feel tainted by the corruption and compromise of the main characters and events. .’ ‘A terrific read and highly recommended.’ James's second novel, Black Coke, is also available. It tells the story of a British agent's mission to bring down a fast-growing drugs cartel that has developed a genetically-modified form of cocaine. From the crack dens of North London to the underground drugs labs of southern Colombia, the race is on to stop the cartel before it's too late.
