A remarkable military thriller from one of the most
acclaimed new suspense writers in yearsâ€”â€śa triumph of the
fiction of contemporary warfareâ€ť (Alan Cheuse, The Dallas
Khatar. It's a
Somali word for 'dangerous,' and it's one that Colonel
Michael Parson has heard too often on his present mission.
His friend Sophia Gold has talked him into using his leave
from the Air Force to fly relief supplies into Somalia in an
antique DC-3 cargo plane.
Somalia is infested with
armed clans, pirates, poverty, and, increasingly,
terrorism. Parson and Gold are about to face all of
them firsthand. An al-Shabaab leader called The Sheikh has
declared all aid a sin against God, and he launches attacks
against planes and convoys to stop it. If that weren't bad
enough, a Hollywood actress and activist has flown into
Somalia to make a documentary, and, as far as Parson is
concerned, she might as well paint targets on their backs.
The mission becomes even more complicated when they
encounter a wounded teenage al-Shabaab fighter, who might be
seeking asylum--or a chance to kill.
Not even Parson
knows just how khatar his mission of
mercy will become.
