Please welcome my guest blogger today, Mike Bond.
HOLY WAR by Mike Bond
The Battle of Beirut is worse than hell, a maelstrom of implacable hatred and frantic love affairs, of explosions, sniper battles and deadly ambushes. Neill, a journalist on a secret mission for Britain’s MI6 intelligence agency, is trying to find Mohammed, a Hezbollah terrorist who could stop the slaughter.
André, a French commando, is also hunting Mohammed, to kill him for the death of his brother, blown up with more than 400 US Marines and French paratroopers by Hezbollah. For Rosa, a remorseless and passionate Palestinian guerrilla, Mohammed is one of few hopes for her people and she will die to protect him. And for lovely Anne-Marie, André is the only one who can save her from hell.
Based on the author’s experiences in Lebanon, Syria and the Middle East, HOLY WAR has been praised for its portrayal of civil war, and for its evocation of men and women caught in a deadly crossfire.
