300 passengers. One plane. One bomb. One switch. One Omar Farouk to set it all aflame!
Welcome to the fast moving world of advanced terrorism where Jihadists in Oman or Afghanistan can blow up buses, trains, and planes in New York, Madrid, or London-without even going there.
This is not the world of the future; it is our world as it is!
A world unpredictable, unforgiving, and deadly!
This isn’t my normal genre I’m willing to admit but after being approached by the author for an honest review and reading reviews already posted I was intrigued and wanted to see for myself what this book was about.
First let me tell you terrorism isn’t something to take lightly.. and I feel the author did well to do the subject justice. The book is from the potential bombers perspective which I thought gave a twist on other tales I’ve read on a similar topic.
The main character is Farouk, as you read the book I felt he’s a man being torn up inside.. not knowing which side is right or wrong.
Overall it was an interesting read and it does make you think about the motives behind events such as this.. things aren’t always as straight forward as they seem
