R. K Narayan comes of the age with what he calls "My Days"

It’s been a long time since he has been the star of the literature, ever since his most notable work called “Malgudi days” has come to the readers. Even before that, the Dev Anand-Waheeda Rehman starred “Guide” was something that defined pure class. You loved his simplicity in narration, perhaps because the simplistic things take the shortest route to touch your hearts. R. K Narayan works has always been the one that you’d always wanted to read more and more, and now the chance for you there to know him personally, what RightBooks.in has arranged for you. The narration of “My Days” focuses on the writer's struggles of life, his quest for real love, his love towards pets & the tribulations of raising a daughter. He also talks about spiritual encounters and his belief in soul-level communications. The reader would stop to think what he would have felt if placed in similar circumstances. Most of us would agree that they had similar experiences in life. R K Narayan's writing style is awfully simple and quite comprehensible to all. The narration is straightforward and the reader gets glued to the book. It makes very interesting reading and one might find it difficult to put aside this memoir book. The author is quite descriptive and the reader would find oneself spiritually moved to beautiful and serene surroundings. The writer describes the pain he had to go through when he lost his wife. His life apparently shattered and the reader feels the pain in his heart. He was so much attached to her in real life; he apparently finds a way to communicate with her spiritually. He believed her spirit was always at his side and he sought guidance from it to cope with the troubles in his devastated life.. Readers will learn about Narayan’s early days in his grandmother’s house in Madras; the stories that she narrated to him every day seemed to have been the genesis of his interest in literature. One will no doubt find it difficult to write objectively about one’s life, and Narayan is no exception, but he writes with such dry wit that one is often forced to pause reading to laugh. His descriptions of his experiences at school and, later, college are full of such instances. One will also occasionally be surprised, such as when one learns that Narayan failed his university entrance examinations in his best subject, English. The beauty of this author's work is the simple narration, which is so free flowing and easy to follow that one gets totally immersed in the book and finds it difficult to put down once you have started reading the account. At one instance, nature is so beautifully described that one feels transported to another world of mystic beauty all around. While reading the book one does feel moved and pained as Narayan is trying hard to cope with his wife's death. One does feel sorry for a devastated husband. Then finally he finds a psychic way to communicate with his wife's soul, which is always nearby him, to help him, guide him and to come to terms with the loss and life after her. A memoir is many a-times dry & even dull, but not this one; this autobiography was an amazingly well written, interesting and inspiring narration of Narayan's extraordinary life and incidents. A very simply narrated account, yet so beautiful that one feels one is actually seeing it all through his eyes and can feel the surroundings. The story talks about various aspects of life - love, struggle, love for pets, raise a daughter, communicating with souls, soul mates, spiritual encounters and the real beauty is that it is all written in such simplistic manner that you will believe it all and may even wonder how you would have reacted or felt if you were in a similar situation. Something that you could relate with your day-to-day life. It’s the book that deserves a place in your collection, and www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780330484435&My%20Days is your address to visit.

Jeff Abbott states the circumstances when you are to answer someone's "Trust Me" call

Sometimes, summer blockbusters don’t arrive in theaters. Sometimes, they show up at your bookstore. Jeff Abbott’s Trust Me is a summer blockbuster worthy of the name. Like many a thriller, Trust Me starts with the bad guys. There are two men, one old and one dressed in a gray suit. They are in a park in London and they are discussing how many terrorists attacks they could unleash with the fifty million dollars the old man, a Middle Eastern prince, is giving to the man in the gray suit. Unbeknownst to them, a third party is there, a lady named Jane, listening in. Armed with this new knowledge, she telephones someone and says, “We start tonight. Rock and roll.” Rock and roll is certainly one way of describing the intense action of the rest of the book. At the center of all this rocking and rolling is Luke Dantry, a twenty-four-year-old University of Texas graduate student. He’s a psychology major and has been helping his step-father, Henry Shawcross, his only living relative after his parents died in two separate accidents, conduct research into extremists groups on the Internet. Specifically, they want to find the radical folks online who may be the next Timothy McVeigh, people who will take their ranting to the next level. After a brief visit by Henry in which Luke delivers the latest reports on these online nut cases, Luke takes his stepfather to the airport. On the way back to his car, Luke finds a gun in his ribs. Now, he’s kidnapped. A desperate man, Eric, tells him to drive to Houston. Bit by bit, Luke learns that he is to be the ransom for Eric’s girlfriend. Chained to a bed in a cabin in the middle of the east Texas woods, Luke has to escape and stay out of the hands of the bad guys as well as the police who want him in connection with the murder of a homeless man, a man Eric shot and Luke witnessed. The chase is on. From Houston to Chicago to New York to Paris, Luke has to stay one step ahead of the authorities and the members of the mysterious Night Road, the group of extremists whose sole desire is to inflict damage upon America. They’ve already started, too. An explosion near Houston is linked to other acts of terror across the country. Luke knows they are tied together and he must figure out a way to stop it while simultaneously clear his name. As a writer, the structure of Abbott’s book was fantastic. You know what they’re thinking and what they don’t know. Later on in the novel, you come to know things Luke has to find out for himself.. Abbott’s approach ups the intensity and tension. We know who is coming for Luke, even if he doesn’t. Armed with our omniscient viewpoint, we know the hired killers are bad, bad people and Luke best get out of whatever situation he’s in. Readers who enjoy a thriller with an intricate, complex puzzle will love Trust Me. Good and bad guys change sides, double-crossing, backstabbing and betraying one another. Each time the reader attempts to connect the dots, the numbers change, spinning the evidence, throwing suspicion on another character and sometimes providing unexpected support for Luke. Trust Me is like a malicious game of musical chairs, with the national security of The United States perched precariously on the edge of disaster. The ending is guaranteed to shock even the most experienced crime thriller fans. The masks are removed, alliances revealed and the good, bad and ugly are identified, and for more information, please buy the book. Trust Me is recommended for readers who enjoy fast-paced, suspenseful, action-packed thrillers. Just make sure you have plenty of time to read, because you won’t want to put it down.

Andrea Maria Schenkel is back in form with her "Bunker" while Anthea Bell shoulders the translation job

With every page of this spine-tingling novel, Andrea Maria Schenkel ratchets up the tension and draw the reader deeper into the dark, dangerous and terrifying bunker of the guilty human psyche. Bunker, the third brief novel by Andrea Maria Schenkel to be translated into English, again by the sensitive pen of Anthea Bell, differs from the author's previous two novels in being set in a (possible) present, rather than being an examination of past crimes in part enabled as well as brought about by the chaos of war, and yet again it’s RightBooks.in service to bring it before. The plot of Bunker is both simple and complex. Simple, in the sense that it describes what is on the surface a straightforward crime: a kidnapping by a man of a woman who lives in the apartment opposite his (or at least, lives somewhere where he can watch her). Complex, in the sense that the story is told from different perspectives, mainly alternating between the kidnapper and the kidnapped, but also occasionally by those who come to sort out the aftermath. At first, the reader cannot identify the voices telling the narrative. It isn't clear who is powerful and who is powerless. As the basic plot becomes apparent, it also becomes obvious which narrator is which. Yet, by the end of the book, ambiguity again reigns. An added dimension is the memory and perceptions of both characters that infiltrate their reactions to their present circumstances: the kidnapper's past life with his violent father and abused mother; and the kidnappee's dark secret, the guilt of which leads her to believe that she knows the identity of her captor. Although the book is short, as well as lacking the historical aspects of the author's previous novels, I enjoyed it more than the earlier books. It is not a deeply profound novel, but it does challenge our sense of "right" and "wrong", and where our sympathies should lie. Monica’s captor is a monster, and she is totally innocent. But as the narrative intercuts between the two, the reader realizes that there is a history here. Both characters draw on their childhoods: she on the murder of her brother and the trial at which her evidence convicted the accused; her attacker on the vicious cruelty with which he and his mother were treated. Were their pasts intertwined? The exploration reaches deeper, back to the bunker in the mill cellar, built by the captor's father. He claimed to have been half-buried underground during the war, and later created an underground refuge. Only much later does his son realize that the wartime experience must have been a total fabrication; that what his father sought was a hiding-place from retribution for his own crimes. His capture of Monika is a psychological regression. Monika begins a process of psychological manipulation. She proposes a plan, which will involve them both as they entice someone else to the mill: an outsider to the strange relationship growing between the two. But that plan goes awry too, and we learn the brutal final twists of the captor's boyhood struggle against his father. The screw is further turned by occasional glimpses of an autopsy in which the pathologist is coolly recording the progress of a forensic investigation. But we have no clue as to whether the body is that of the prisoner or the captor. Essentially a two person act, with Monika the central character being snatched away and kept locked up for reasons she believes must be linked to a crime set in the time of her childhood, and her captor as the other character, this is a taut and powerful tale well told as it switches from one perspective to the other alternately with interspersed details of hospital treatment to person/s unknown as the story is told between them.

Ruth Rendell takes the way to define The Bridesmaid

Love is a strange outburst of the human emotions, and it makes you to do the unbelievables. You are a simple life leading guy, love your lady love, but the situation is such that you are not stepping back to execute that you haven’t even thought of doing even in your wildest dreams. You can even show the desperation to take someone’s life for your love, and Ruth Rendell describes it in a touching manner before you. The Bridesmaid is not just another psychological thriller, it is something that you’ll agree that this could be your story as well. Surely this is one of her most compelling suspense novels. The characters are so well drawn, the dialogue so natural, you really think you might know these people. The idea explored had potential - that two lovers would kill to prove their love. Philip, his sisters Fiona and Sarah and mother all live together in a smallish flat in London after his father died. Fee is getting married, Sarah is acting strangely, and his mother is a dependent woman who cannot exist without a man around. At the wedding, Philip falls for one of the bridesmaids. Senta is the groom's cousin. Philip is immediately enthralled. While Fee is away on her honeymoon and his mother and other sister are taking a vacation, he and Senta get extremely close extremely quickly. Only when it is too late does he realize that this relationship requires more than a normal one to keep it steady. Senta's idea of proof of undying love is rather skewed. By the time Philip is able to sort out Senta's lies from the truth, he is in a situation that he cannot fathom. For a start, it just didn't seem likely that Phillip and Senta (the lovers) would be attracted to each other. Senta, the creepy, somewhat slovenly, yet beautiful and passionate girl with silver hair, and Phillip - gentle, particular, mother's boy, trainee interior decorator. There's no doubt that the novel had atmosphere, but it seemed as if Senta was in the wrong story - it's as if she wandered in from a gothic horror story. Phillip and his ordinary family consisting of mother Christine, sisters Fee and Cheryl, and brother in-law Darren, belonged more to the "kitchen sink" genre. It was even harder to believe that Senta shared any genes at all with Darren (she was his cousin, and her meeting with Phillip occurred when she was one of several bridesmaids at the wedding of Fee and Darren). Phillip was obviously way out of his league with Senta, and should have run in the other direction when she proposed they each murder a stranger. A delight of this and other Ruth Rendell books are the side characters, and the descriptions of the people involved in the various sub plots, there again are they just sub plots or somehow more central to the story than they appear. For example the character Darren, Fee's new husband "Darren's hair was yellow and thick and rather rough, like new thatch. He had blue eyes, and strong handsome features, and ruddy skin. One day, wine colored jowls would hang over his collar, and his nose would become an outsize strawberry. He was a square man, the jack on a playing card. Ruth Rendell's books always pack a punch. Or several. And in "The Bridesmaid", Rendell stays true to form, basically. While most Rendell fans recognize her as the author of the fascinating Inspector Wexford series, she also writes other thrillers. She also writes even chillier thrillers under the name of Barbara Vine. Regardless of which nom de plume she uses, it is difficult to find a writer who can explore, even reveal, the psychological pathways with the effectiveness of she demonstrates. It’s a classic that this page at www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780099681809&Bridesmaid,%20The brings about, and none other than RightBooks.in is ready to provide you that.

John Grisham brings “The Firm” presentation of the Mafia and Criminal law world

It took just the 2nd book from John Grisham to shot into the limelight, and “The Firm” gave Grisham everything an author could expect. Being a graduate of the criminal laws, Grisham have had an impressive grip over the subject and the people related with it, and this advantage has made the characters in “The Firm” so believable. No doubt over that, that “The Firm “ is a terrifically exciting and likable first novel about tax lawyers and the Mafia, and a predictable success already sold to the movies, etc. Grisham does not cut as deep or furnish the occasional shining paragraph that Scott Turow does, but he writes a stripped, cliché-free page that grips and propels. Mitchell McDeere, married and tops in his class at Harvard, has great offers from several firms and is hungry for success. When Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis snows him with money, a new BMW, a low-interest mortgage financed by the company, a huge clothing allowance and other incredible perks, (including early retirement as a multimillionaire), he seems to have landed in fairyland. Nothing is too much for the one new man a year the firm takes on. For a lawyer, getting signed on by a big law firm with a paycheck that’s almost indecent to talk in public circles must be a dream come true. Add to that a swanky BMW being leased to you, a lovely home with a decorator, and perks that even some of the white-collar folks don’t get and that’s your very own fairy tale in the making. For Mitch McDeere it started like that. He loved his work, loved his wife, loved his home, basically he loved his life and himself to death. And death it was in the wings for him. As days pass, an uneasiness begins to creep in their minds but McDeere is so taken with his life, he hardly has the time to pay heed to such feeble nagging doubts. All that's required from him in a 90-hour week for several years and a fast hand at billing clients. Most of the firm's clients, seemingly all wealthy and ready to be billed unlimitedly, are content not to question the firm's methods at relieving their tax strain. For a while all looks legal. Then McDeere learns of the heavy mortality rate among the firm's lawyers: no one ever quits Bendini, Lambert & Locke. They die. It turns out that while the firm has many clients with clean hands, it nonetheless was set up by the Mafia as a pump house for siphoning drug dollars and other untaxed cash into phony corporations set up in the Cayman Islands. In fact, the firm's lavish Lear jet regularly hauls tons of US legal tender down to the islands with their hundreds of tax-haven banks and secret numbered accounts. Then the FBI chooses McDeere to be its chief informant and offers him its Witness Protection Program; otherwise, McDeere will be swept up in the forthcoming crackdown on the firm. Although the firm knows McDeere is a spy and sets him up for assassination, he is smarter than even the reader knows and fights back against both the firm and the FBI. Few situations are there that lets you experience your nightmare and dream sleeping there, and you are in dilemma what to choose and what to leave. This book is a perfect example of how large corporations can deceive and manipulate its employees with money and other ways of black mail. This book shows that deception is everywhere, including the legal system. It is true that Grisham is a gifted storyteller. He belongs to the school of writers who stuck to a linear narrative while weaving a complex web of turns and twists. His characters beseech you to empathize with them and, at the same time, marvel at their sheer audacity and genius in executing this con of cons. It helps that Grisham himself practiced law and has a knack for not going overboard with jargon. He is your ultimate raconteur of modern-day legal thrillers, and this page at www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780099830009&Firm,%20The gives you the chance to get them. Enjoy this RightBooks.in offer class.

Nicci French anchors “The Memory Game”

Crime thriller book is about suppressed memory of a crime. It has its twist and turns but it’s a slow book. There are reasons for which you’ll like “The Memory Game” and this is mainly because author has a way with her words. It has words soothingly falling on your ears kind of quality. The book drags on at many places but somehow holds your interest so as to finish. Whether it’s be "Memory Game" or "Kim's Game", as the narrator describes them and then confesses to confusing the two, game theory becomes the controlling conceit for this exploration of family solidarity and family secrets. A terrible murder (with attendant ramifications of incest) is disclosed 25 years after the victim, a beautiful and enigmatic teenager, has been buried in a pit right outside the front door of her home. The gruesome discovery of a pregnant girl, who had been thought, by all but the murderer--to be merely missing, becomes the stimulus for the narrator, her childhood friend and rival, to embark on a quest to recover dark hidden memories of a vanished childhood among the "blue remembered hills" of her "land of lost content." The account that follows--with its frequent forays into psychotherapeutic sessions, is gripping, even as mesmerizing as the psychotherapist himself seems to be, and the narrator goes through an ominous process of question and answer only to find ultimately that the "truth" of her breakthrough is not truth at all. The only disappointing part of this process comes in the rushed conclusion following her acceptance of the validity of the "false-memory" syndrome (an exposition of which is glossed over far too hurriedly); the dénouement seems strangely contrived and much less believable than what has preceded it. Nevertheless this is an absorbing read. It will please the literary minded as well as mystery lovers. It has certainly left this reader with a taste for more from this spellbinding writer. If you are a fan of mystery/detective stories, you'll like this book. If you like a bit of psychology thrown in, you'll like it even more. It's easy and quick to read and makes you think twice about psychological fashions like 'recovered memories'. The psychological thriller is an increasingly important part of the mystery genre but the tag is an odd one since any mystery novel worth its salt delves into the psychology of the characters in it. But it is apt as a description of Nicci French's novels because of their concentration on character. The main asset that “The Memory Game” is that it is an energy packed one, with a continuity stream in the plotting. This is especially essential and crucial when the storyline is a very familiar and oft used one. The book was simply all over the place, there were too many subplots and the subplot involving Natalie and her mysterious disappearance sometimes got lost as it jostled for attention with these other subplots. As a result that atmosphere of suspense and tension you would expect of a really good mystery novel gets even more intense. Another factor that will attract you regarding this book, was that there were (literally) too many characters, and not all of them were really necessary to this novel at all. Obviously, this was French's first novel, and equally obviously, French has gone on to write much, much more exciting and compelling novels. Given the plot and the sequence of the events that followed one after another, and most importantly that “The Memory Game” is the first venture of Nicci French, the husband wife writer duo, you will surely find yourself stuck to the story narration. The link at www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780141034133&The%20Memory%20Game lets you buy this literature venture, and you have RightBooks.in to accompany with all the buying details.

Anne Tyler directs with Noah’s Compass

Something clutches at the heart in the opening pages of Noah's Compass, the latest offering from Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Anne Tyler. It's not just that Liam Pennywell, the protagonist, at 60 is laid off, divorced, apparently alone in the world and, within a week of being downsized, has swapped his large, old-fashioned, dignified apartment for a cinderblock box on the outskirts of Baltimore. If you flip through Noah’s Compass a second time, you notice that there’s quite a lot about doors. The most important ones in the novel are the patio doors that Liam Pennywell leaves open on his night in the small apartment he takes in a scuzzy part of Baltimore after he loses his job teaching ancient history at a private school. A burglar slips through them, brains Liam and then escapes without taking anything, but leaving a bite mark on his victim’s hand. Noah didn't need a compass, a rudder or a sextant because he wasn't going anywhere; he just bobbed along trying to stay afloat. Liam Pennywell, the 60-year-old narrator of Anne Tyler's latest novel, "Noah's Compass", has been getting by without a compass for years. Alone, unemployed, a little lonely, closed off, thinking his life is behind him, Liam has what you call a "life-changing experience". In fact, he has two of them; one is physical and the other metaphorically dangles in front of him his much-needed "compass", if he'll only recognize it. To open an Anne Tyler novel is to open yourself to care about her characters and "Noah's Compass" is no different. Chances are there that you’ll fall in love with Liam Pennywell and Eunice Dunstead, (a "rememberer"). Even Tyler's less loving characters are appealing through their all-too-human faults. Liam's stern older sister, his brisk ex-wife, and his three daughters, are all endearing in their own way. One never wishes evil on a Tyler character because they all reflect back something of yourselves. Her characters are familiar, archetypal and "Tyler-esque"; in all her novels we see people who are stumbling around in the dark. They don't even grope for their identities and their life purposes; those things just seem to fall upon them like odds and ends off an attic shelf. During the course of this seemingly simple yet complex little novel, you are introduced to the cast of characters that make up Liam's past - his wives, his daughters, his own parents, and an oddball (this is Anne Tyler country) woman with whom Liam establishes a rapport. There is not a lot of action in this novel. Although the storyline doesn’t span over a long time period, and the story takes place over just one year. Yet, Anne Tyler once again makes brilliant observations about people and what makes us tick. You may think your experiences and reflections and hopes and dreams are unique - but they're not. They are shared, and there were many moments in this book that just had me shaking my head in recognition and empathy. Her observations about aging are spot on, and her scripting is not just a pleasure to go on reading, but also a thought provoking one for you. Noah's Compass is a beautifully subtle book, an elegant contemplation of what it means to be happy and the consequences of a defensive withdrawal from other people. Life, Tyler seems say, is at its best when we let it be messy and unstructured; when, like Jonah, we allow ourselves to colour outside the lines. Just the perfect projection of life that this book by Tyler brings to you, and RightBooks.in gives you the chance to buy it.

Frederick Forsyth flexes Devil’s Alternative that saved the world

It’s a flavor of realism that will set Devil’s Alternative a different one read about, and the solid plotting of the backdrop during the cold war phase in the early 80’s is something that will keep you engaged after you have started going through it. Although a dated novel (first published in 1979), this is still an enjoyable read for Forsyth fans. About the aversion of global war via deft manipulation by players - leaders, bureaucrats, spies - of the then world's political powerhouses of USA, Russia and Britain. Engaging diplomatic and political suspense. Devil’s Alternative is another of his fast paced, easy to read stories with a good long story. You’ll love the detail of the USSR government, you really feel like it in a non-fiction book at times. He has always used a lot of good factual details to make his books solid. Like the work of all good authors, you really grow to know the characters, like some and hate some - they have solid reasons for doing what they are doing in the book. There is a lot going on but the way he writes it you do not have any problems following the action. A great book that is well worth the time. Forsyth knows his stuff, and has done a perfect job of researching the Halls of Power on both sides of the ocean. His depiction of the Soviet Politburo in action is one of the best representations in all of fiction. His use of technology (for example the tank case.) is well done, with no inaccuracies. In the plotting, you will see a situation where the entire Soviet Union wheat crop is destroyed by a devastating string of failures, the population faces starvation. The USA is quick to offer assistance. They devise a plan to trade vital food resources with the Russians in exchange for sensitive political information. But the Politburo has other ideas: the invasion of Western Europe to commandeer the food for themselves. The Politburo chief just manages to stop the war plan, but two Ukrainian nationalists had other ideas, and they intervene into the situation any killing the KGB chief. En route of their escape, they are arrested, and their followers have no other option to rescue them but to hijack a supertanker and threatening to spill the entire oil into the sea, if their leader is not released.. USSR will stop negotiating with USA about the information exchange if they are released, and the big countdown has began, either an ecological massacre, or the probable third world war for food that might destroy the world. As ever, Forsyth is impeccable in his description of places and events. He can tell you how many paces it takes to cross a bridge in Moscow, or the décor inside the Kremlin. However, it is his attention to detail when talking of events at the level of international power politics, or the thoughts and feelings of a peasant tilling his fields, which is so impressive. We need to bear in mind that he is a trained journalist who has been in hotspots in his time. He isn’t just an armchair thriller writer. That is why, perhaps, his novels have the power to enthrall. He leads us through seemingly unconnected avenues, which gradually, ever so gradually, start to merge. We see a picture in which one man’s fanaticism could smash the best laid plans of superpowers and the hopes and worries of a man who leads a nation and who needs the help of his enemies to prevent an extremist bent on conflict taking over from him. In all this is a British agent and his love of old. We see how old fires can be relit and burn again with an intensity all of their own. Forsyth stokes those fires. Surely you’ll love this book to go through, and www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780099552918&Devils%20Alternative,%20The is where you’ll get this book absolutely at the price you hardly have imagined. Come and experience the facility that RightBooks.in has kept in place for you.

Chris Eyan knows how it feels when one is left with “Zero Option”

When you are left with no other options, you dare to do the unthinkable. You can’t see your loved ones sufferings, and yet you are helpless, and are bound to do what you are ordered. Doesn’t matter whether the execution demands you to go back to your forgettable past, you just have to do it, and in case you fail to do so, your world is shattered. Chris Ryan has narrated exactly that, and the ex-secret agent in his “Zero Option” has to do everything that he left long ago, only to let his son and girlfriend survive. May be this plotting is very much with the innumerable Hollywood blockbusters, but the story telling in “Zero Option” is something with a difference, and a mystery with a touching soul kind appeal is what Chris has scripted for you. Few mystery cults have the capability to make you feel assimilated with the storyline, and definitely “Zero Option” falls in this classification. In spite of accusations of embellishment, Ryan's autobiographical “Zero Option” certainly had a ring of realism about it, which set it apart in the genre, and made it a bestseller. Ryan recreates that sense of reality in his action sequences in his early novels, and this book is worth buying for those alone. His storyline, however, is far more convincing than you actually anticipated, and you’ll find that events conveniently and continually fell into place, to bring about an unpredictable outcome. Continuing straight from Stand by, the prequel of “Zero Option”, Chris Ryan digs right in from the moment you open the book. Starting off with great suspense, Ryan quickly moves onto the action with a mission to assassinate a man who has caused Sharp nothing but pain. With attachable characters and a great story, this book is really a special one to treat your love for quality storyline. In zero option the story continues from when Geordie Sharp (A SAS soldier who is the main person in this book) comes home and finds his family kidnapped by the PIRA (PIRA is a provisional version of the IRA). 'When Geordie discovers his family (his son and girlfriend) have been kidnapped he spends the next few months trying to rescue them, of course the SAS are helping as much as they can by tracing calls and raiding flats. Of course they are also doing it in hope that they will capture any important PIRA person. During this time they send him on a mission to Libya to assassinate a person financing the PIRA who also tortured Geordie and his team when they were captured in Iraq, but when he comes home he discovers that the PIRA have made a demand and unless they follow it Geordie family is dead. The demand is to hand over Declan O'Farrell, and Declan is a person who is a key character in the PIRA and was caught in the Colombian jungle by Geordie and his SAS team. There is a problem; Declan is locked in a high-security prison. Geordie thinks up a plan and with the help of the SAS carries it out and gets Declan, then after Geordie fails to get a hostage swap carried out successfully the PIRA give him a final demand which if not carried out will leave Geordie's family dead, and that to assassinate the Prime Minister.' The book was a great read and very interesting. Definitely you will agree that it is well written and has good descriptions of characters and a good setting.
