'Bloodland' has quality written all over it. This is a thriller of our times – with a location list to rival a Bond movie, the action moves at a ferocious pace from Dublin to New York to West Africa and involves the ordinary man on the street as well as the privileged in their gilded offices.
Prepare to have your conscience tweaked as the author gives an indication of how the 21st century is unravelling. Glynn cleverly works a number of current issues into his plot and without causing a dip in the pace he highlights such concerns as corruption in big business, China's greed for raw material, ex-military personnel ignored by the nations they risked their lives for, the role of hidden men in politics, and the rapacious hunger for immediate, 24 hour-a-day news.
This is a cracking read: credible top level entertainment that engages the heart, the imagination and the intellect. Don't miss it.
