THE BLASPHEMER BY JOHN LING
Description of book taken from author's web page
When John Ling sent me this eBook I told him it would take a couple of weeks for me to read it. I had other books to finish and thrillers aren't my normal fodder. But I couldn't resist a peek at the opening chapter and ... a day later I was finished. And what a ride!
Short, crisp chapters moved between characters and climactic events, winding the tension tighter and tighter, the story playing out like an A class action/thriller movie. Explosive, with a hell of a punch, is the only way to describe it.
There has been a lot of research put into this work and it shows. John Ling has presented a balanced approach to the clash between Islam and the West. Between the nail-biting scenes there is plenty to ponder. Not least is the notion that this kind of trouble could escalate onto the mainly peaceful shores of New Zealand.
There's no doubt in my mind that we will be hearing a whole lot more from this talented author.
