Book Review:The Minotaur's Forgotten Drum

  • Author:
    Brian Morris
    In the transition period in Afghanistan an Apache helicopter crashes into a Chinook without warning or apparent cause. The Chinook crew and the SAS team on board are all killed. The Apache pilot is an Afghan and the easy call is Blue on Green. However ,a British air investigator begins to sense the answer is more subtle. Maintenance and spares accounts are investigated, at the same time an investigative British journalist has arrived in country seeking answers to his questions. The journalist's contact in London had talked of far reaching corruption.

    What begins as an air accident investigation rapidly escalates dragging in a wider and wider circle of involvement. Action leaps from London to Afghanistan to rural France .The book moves at a compelling place and bar references to a British officer's revolver, the military side is well written.

    The book can be read as crime fiction or military , at a modest £7.99 on Amazon it should sell well. The author previously wrote Rainshadow and this follows on from that book.

    The book runs to 337 pages and the typeface/layout looks a bit kindle themed. It is also available in e format.

    The title is taken from Henry Thoreau "If a man does not keep pace with his companions , perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away"
