SARTORI A novel by Mike Tucker Literary Fiction: Espionage/Action-adventure The first novel to rip the lid off the American "No covert ops inside Saudi Arabia" of the last 70 years, SARTORI is a wild ride, a journey into the world of counterterrorism spies, mercenaries, covert operatives, many of whom are Muslim and are crucial to the hunt for the number one Islamic State financier in Northern Saudi Arabia, The Sheikh. SARTORI, which means "moment of enlightenment" in Zen Buddhism, is the sequel to Mike Tucker's thrilling novel, SPARTACUS DID THE RIGHT THING, which was compared to Ernest Hemingway by the African Correspondent for THE SUNDAY TIMES of London, Miles Amoore. In the summer of 2015, three counterterrorism mercenaries of the British Secret Intelligence Service find themselves on the mission of their lives, behind enemy lines in Northern Saudi Arabia, aided by a brilliant Moroccan covert operative and a Saudi operative--code name, Naomi--who do not hesitate to bring their deep understanding of Arab Beduoin culture to aid the mercs. Raw in its combat, scintillating in its action and intrigue, and not lacking in humor and satire, SARTORI is a thrilling spy novel by the only writer of his generation who has been compared to Hemingway--Mike Tucker.
