#1 New York Times bestselling author Frederick Forsyth delivers an international thriller that takes readers into the darkest hearts of men and nations…
 
In a remote corner of the impoverished African republic of Zangaro lies Crystal Mountain. At certain times of the day, the mountain itself seems to glow with a strange light. Only the ruthless and untouchable tycoon Sir James Manson knows why: the mountain contains billions of dollars worth of the world’s most valuable mineral—platinum. And he wants it all.

To do so, he must first remove the unfriendly government currently in power and replace it with a puppet regime. Towards this end, Manson hires the deadly Cat Shannon and his team of mercenaries to do the dirty work. But he didn’t realize how bloody things were going to get.

Excellent read just as all of his other books have been. Where does the truth end and the fiction begin? Mr Forsyth will never tell; but his books will leave you with a true sense of satisfaction for having read a story well written.

A mountain of almost pure platinum is accidentally discovered by a British mining company. Unfortunately, it's located in an African country that is loyal to the Soviets (this takes place during the Cold War). The owner of the mining company decides to overthrow the small country's government with a small team of mercenaries. It's a great set-up, but there is very little payoff. Forsyth dwells so much on the details of organizing the operation that the operation doesn't even touch land until the final 20 pages of the book! The whole thing ends up reading like a how-to book about organizing your own coup. I suppose the reason this is the first review of this book is that it was too boring for anyone else to finish. Nowhere near as good as other Forsyth efforts, although I suspect this was a pet project of his that got published before it got polished.
