MWSA Review

Neil Millar takes on kidnappers, ex-KGB agents, cannibals, snakes, poisonous spiders, and even supernatural forces, as he takes an armed team to an island in the Bay of Bengal to try and rescue a woman.  His book, “Black Water – A Place of No Hope,” has all the suspense and action one would want in any action thriller.  The hero fights personal demons for his own sanity—which he medicates with alcohol.  The hero is flawed but it makes the story more interesting and complex.

A must read!

For good synopsis of this book and an excellent review that I cannot honestly add much to check out the New York Times Book Review:http://www.neilmillar.net/Black%20Water%20Review.htm
