A humorous, well paced action story of a young man named Jake Knight who, after being kicked out of a British prep-school, is sent to Africa where his father is the britsih ambassador. Jake and his sister soon find trouble when they are kidnapped and held for ransom by a group of theives, but when a new group of africans come to their aid; all is not what it seems. I found reading this book believable and fun, and enjoyed it very much.

Rating: 4 Better than most

         Jake Knight always wanted adventure; as the son of a British Ambassador he doesn’t have too much opportunity for it. When he breaks one rule too many at his boarding school, Jake is sent to Africa to stay with his parents, which suits him just fine. But he gets more than he bargained for when he and his sister are kidnapped by a ruthless group of outlaws. They are rescued by another group of outlaws, and this group is headed up by the most wanted fugitive in the Sahara-Yakuuba Sor. But is everything really as is seems? Is Yakuuba Sor the  deadly terrorist everyone makes him out to be? This novel had plenty of wit, action, adventure, danger, and technology. It is an enjoyable way to spend a rainy afternoon, and any fan of James Bond style escapades and fast-paced plots should read this novel.     

Rating: 4 Better than most
