What an incredible story this is. It is a thrilling tale involving political intrigue, kidnapping, the destruction of navy vessels and so much more. Peter Savage inadvertently becomes embroiled in the unfolding events after helping prevent a kidnapping of the niece of the Sultan. This leads on to scenarios where Peter and his pit bull, Diesel, are key players in a thrilling adventure during which they need to help prevent war between China and the USA. This is a riveting, action packed read with danger around every corner. It isn't something that I'd usually automatically have chosen to read but I couldn't put it down and I'll certainly be looking out for more by this talented author in future. It has great characters and a suspense filled plot with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. There are surprises galore as the chief conspirators and their motives are revealed. Overall, a superb, suspense filled thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed. If only politicians could have the same attitude as the President of the USA at the end of this story. I can but dream .....
