    Dutch goes to the Horn of Africa

    Not exactly vintage Leonard, and takes a while to get the players straight, but once this book settles into its groove, you can't put it down! Very prescient in a lot of ways about how crime & terrorism intersect. Great language and characters. Loved it!!

    Great and fairly literate escapist reading

    This is an airplane book with class and well worth the investment. In fact I was so intrigued I finished it before I got on the plane. A departure from Leonard's usual milieu but he seems to do a good job capturing the atmosphere and taking his traditional types of characters to it. On an e-reader a little hard to follow (to flip back and figure out who is who), but it has nice twists and holds attention to the end.

    Leonard is a treasure

    Really, this guy is great. He's 85 and still writes better than 95% of the writers out there a third his age.

    Leonard's books are odd in a way. People meander through them and things happen not because some master plan has been hatched, but because things just happen.

    Djibouti is about the Somali pirates, and reading it was an education in that mess. It's also about a woman filming a documentary and a terrorist. They all swirl together and things happen and it's interesting and exciting, but it's never epic in scale. It feels like real life playing out.

    I hope Leonard is still publishing at 100.
