In this bold novel Jason Elliot illuminates the dark recesses of the intelligence community during a crucial moment in history the struggle to avoid a terrorist attackIn the months before 911 former army officer Anthony Taverner is leading a uiet life in the English countryside But his recruitment for a dangerous mission to Afghanistan by the British Secret Intelligence Service better known as MI6 shatters his fragile pea. This is a novel I won from GoodReads and I m so happy I did Elliot is a travel writer which adds a great dimension to this thriller It s his first novel but I certainly hope there will be There are gripping sections of nail biting tension but those are balanced with wonderful descriptions of the settings and relationships The hero Anthony Taverner has a best friend he would die for a lovely romance with a beautiful woman and a brotherhood with another man of action I prefer that to a loner who only uses people and I prefer the balance to constant bloody actionTaverner aka Ant is a hero I would love to see in another novel he s that intriguing He s a thoughtful man controlled very human rather than a Rambo Much of the action takes place in Afghanistan a place which becomes haunting the I read about it Of course we all need to know about the country and its people for obvious reasons I recall that iconic image of a Afghani woman with green eyes who gazes into the camera That photo alone has always made me want to know about Afghanistan and this novel is one of the answers because Elliot obviously knows that part of the world uite well I do recommend this book and not just for people who like thrillers

Ce and plunges him into the kaleidoscopic world of spying Under the expert guidance of an old school hero and veteran of the elite British Special Air Service Taverner prepares to enter Taliban controlled Afghanistan to destroy a cache of the CIA 's precious Stinger missiles before they can fall into the hands of al aeda In Britain and America the intelligence community is poised for a catastrophe that must be kept secret. I really enjoyed Jason Elliott s The Network It was like going along for the ride on covert mission from the safety of your armchair The mission was to seek out a stash of American stinger missiles before the Al ueda gets them I confess that I have never really enjoyed James Bond movies with the exception of the introduction of new gadgets and liking the scenery of the different settings This book is much richer Anthony or Ant is much developed as a person from the sorrow he felt being separated from his two little girls to his sincere desire to be the best for the Firm With this book you feel that a door to the British Intelligence and CIA has been opened There is humor as The Network does some mocking of spy films Even though I have never held a gun in hands I enjoyed learning about the origin capabilities and deficits of the AK 47 I trained census workers for the 1990 census and knew a census taker who had the experience of sitting across from someone with an AK 47 at their side I now have a deeper appreciation of his terror as he went over the uestionnaire with the resident Also the book makes you familiar with the deadly stinger missiles in such a way thateven I with no useful background in arms could understand it Even so I did not feel that this education was a dumbing down but rather a correct and realistic simplication for the inexperienced Besides learning all about the different methods of defense the Ant showed versatility in uite a few different languages Anthony had a great advantage knowing a lot of the languages in the area and also the customs He knew how appreciate cultural differences and fit in Ant demonstrated lots of ingenuity in how to get out a variety of life threatening situations The focus was to do what works and that did not necessarily reuire feats of magic I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Afghanistan covert operations adventure and wanting a accuracy of them This is not a man s book it is a book for everyone

    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
