About the Author

It is rare to encounter an action thriller that does not shy away from in-depth character study. While readers of Nelson DeMille...Ken Follett, have been spoiled by characters that are deeper then the thickness of the novel in which they are featured, it is unusual to find a new author daring to reach for such heights...and doing it successfully.

"Face Of Our Father" by G. Egore Pitir has all the ingredients of a sumptuous thriller: Violent, complex plot, bursts of intense action...an imperfect hero...a beautiful-yet-troubled love interest...realistic moral complexity that allows us to find ourselves doubting the heroes' purity of motives and, despite ourselves, feel a twisted sympathy, on some level, with the villains.

Furthermore, in light of current events, the story could have been pulled off the evening news...the author of "Face Of Our Father" succeeded where many have failed. This is a great thriller with a soul. -"The Columbia Review of Books & Film"

I found it satisfying in the end. Many threads of hatred, love, jihad, power, corruption and patriotism woven into a thrilling whole.

When I first started reading the story I was confused because I thought the character from Prologue Zhueb Azwad was involved in the story and but instead meet Hosaam and Kashif. Later understanding comes that Zhueb was the ancestor of Uday. I think because of the confusion and trying to figure out the connection, it distracted me from getting into the story. I liked Stu and Angie's story line. It was complex with so many factors affecting them both as individuals even after 26 years of marriage. Deception between them almost cost them everything. I felt the characters showed a complexity that is not often seen. The scenes where Stu is fighting the urge to take a pill and Angie's burqa speaking to her showed flaws that made them real. Flaws that made them relatable and understandable. We are shown the perspective of devout believers of Islam and how even within there are strong differences of opinions. I think that is important to acknowledge that not everyone wants to be a soldier or be a part of jihad. The story is fast paced with an almost happy ending which adds to the reality of the story. I felt the events that played out could have happened somewhere in real life. Overall, good read for anyone who enjoys suspense and fast paced action. Look forward to reading the sequel.
