From the public one that Taverner must attempt to avert all without exposing a dangerous secret all his ownBased on real characters and drawing on the author's extensive firsthand knowledge of Afghanistan this is a thriller of rare authenticity providing sustained insight into influences surrounding 911 and raising uestions about the role of intelligence agencies in historical events deliberately hidden from the public e. This is Jason Elliot s first foray into the realm of writing novels and he started with a real corker Elliott first established himself as a travel writer with An Unexpected Light which explored Afghanistan from a totally uniue perspective In The Network he uses that knowledge to great advantage This is a pre 911 thriller centered around an operation to take out a stockpile of Stinger missiles deep in the wilds of the Afghani countryside It is loaded with detail about ordnance weapons and offensive and defensive training tactics used by the SAS It is also pretty clear from reading this book that his marriage did not work out It is not everyday that an ex meets with this sustained level of vitriol on the printed page That took away from the rest of the book to me but not enough to give it three stars instead of four I once met the lady in uestion which may cloud my judgment somewhatIn the end this is a good competently written espionage thriller In a few places it could have used a careful editor and proofreader All in all though the bits that shine than make up for the awkward places I look forward to seeing where Jason goes next whether it be in the travel or fiction arena
