This is Collin's first book and it is an adventure and a half, well in fact three. The main story is about a group of people fleeing from Syria after a bombing of a town and a UN Convoy. The second is how they take on people smugglers, not giving the plot away it is a interesting and fearful tale. The third, well that’s about a political proposition which gains a life of its own and causes dramas all over the world .
As a first novel you would expect it to be a bit ragged around the edges and for my money Colin could have dropped the politics and expanded the fight against the people smugglers. It is not a bad book despite these minor niggles; the first few chapters in Syria and the details behind the UN activity certainly grabbed me and made me sit up and think. This is a stuffer, I mean as its holiday season stuff it into your bag to read on the plane and on the beach you won't regret it . A good first book and I can’t wait to read the next one which is on the stocks as we speak 3.5 mushroom heads.
