Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.: Warner Books Inc, 1994. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. From Publishers Weekly: The creator of Rambo and author of the bestselling The Fifth Profession has not lost his touch; this is a thrill-a-minute adventure novel. During his career as an undercover Army Special Operations agent, Brendan Buchanan has taken on more than 200 assumed identities. But when his cover is blown on a drug sting in Mexico, he is forced back on the identity he knows the least--his own. Buchanan receives a desperate SOS from Juana Mendez, the operative who posed years before as his wife. Determined to save her, Buchanan travels across the U.S. and ultimately back to Mexico accompanied by fearless, sexy Washington Post reporter Holly McCoy, who knows a lot about covert operations and is planning a feature on Buchanan. During their travels, they uncover a bizarre tale of a missing opera diva, her billionaire industrialist lover and his plot to destroy ancient Mayan ruins in order to exploit the world's greatest untapped oilfield. With all the action of a James Bond adventure and just a dash of the melancholy of John le Carre, this is a terrific suspense thriller, but it will probably be even more satisfying on the silver screen where the novel's lack of emotional or intellectual resonance will be subsumed in the highly kinetic adventure. Filled with nonstop suspense and stunning psychological insight, this is the story of Brendon Buchanan, undercover intelligence operative and master of over two hundred false identities: a man forced to assume the most elusive and treacherous identity of all--his own. Tracking the most devastating conspiracy he has ever encountered, trapped by his love of two enigmatic, beautiful women, he will race through a sinister labyrinth of intrigue to a shattering rendezvous with fate . . . in a novel that not only offers a brilliant, action-packed plot and fascinating characters, but asks daring, provocative questions about our own identities as well.

Bandula Chandraratna:
An Eye for an Eye - Livres de poche

ISBN: 0753813564

[SR: 2014468], Paperback, [EAN: 9780753813560], Phoenix, Phoenix, Book, [PU: Phoenix], Phoenix, Set in an unnamed desert kingdom in the present-day Middle East, Bandula Chandraratna's novel An Eye for an Eye is a measured yet passionate depiction of a society torn between Islamic fundamentalism and western libertarianism. Returning to the characters he introduced in his debut novel, Mirage, Chandraratna portrays Sayeed's struggle to recover from the loss of his wife, Latifa, who was sentenced to death by stoning after a court committed her for adultery. Sayeed is in hospital after suffering a mental breakdown and having been discovered unconscious and alone in the heat of the desert. Once discharged from hospital, he must choose whether to forgive the authorities that killed her, or, encouraged by his fundamentalist childhood friend, Yasser, to exact vengeance. In stark and lucid prose, this tale dares to tackle huge moral themes in a compassionate and understated way. Arabic culture, so often misunderstood and misrepresented in the western media, is delineated in a style that is sensitive and honest, and often touchingly funny. Much comic mileage is gained from the characters' love of western car brands and their desire to own ever-more expensive and prestigious models. And yet, western and Islamic cultures are not seen as opposite poles on the spectrum; both are capable of harbouring good and evil, and violence and greed are inherent in both cultures. Sayeed's kingdom stands at a moral crossroads--trapped between the rampant avarice and moral disregard of capitalism and the implacable, unforgiving morality of Islamic fundamentalism. Faced with these two equally unholy extremes, Sayeed's final choice is all the more remarkable. An Eye for an Eye's prequel, Mirage caught the attention of the 1999 Booker Prize judges for its ability to meditate on grand subjects such as love, loss and repression with an astonishing deftness of touch. This second novel shares this ability, and, although knowledge of the first novel is always an advantage, this simple tale of an ordinary man with a very extraordinary dilemma is compelling in its own right. --Jane Morris , 590756, Contemporary Fiction, 62, Fiction, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 590934, Literary Fiction, 62, Fiction, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
