Dogs of War by Frederick Forsyth

Book Description

An astonishing discovery is made in the remote African republic of Zangaro, one which could change the course of a nation's history forever. But such a discovery cannot be kept secret for long and Sir James Manson will stop at nothing to protect this find. A ruthless and bloody-minded tycoon, Manson immediately hires an army of mercenaries and with this deadly crew behind him he sets out to topple the government and replace its dictator with a puppet president. But news of the discovery has reached Russia - and suddenly Manson finds he no longer makes the rules in this power game. A game in which win or lose means life or death. In this masterful thriller of international intrigue, Frederick Forsyth delivers a tense, brutal and always believable tale that will satisfy die-hard fans and newcomers alike.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » More jackals - and better than The Odessa File - the terrain this time is a godforsaken little kingdom of nothing called Zangaro on the coast of West Africa now put on the map for one James Manson of Manson Consolidated Mining Company Ltd. by a mineral deposit thought to be tin, later revealed as platinum. There seem to be only two kinds of people in the world, at any rate Forsyth's, namely predators and grazers; Manson is one of the former but so is the mercenary Cat Shannon from Ulster whom he hires to take over the republic of Zangaro and dispose of its Papa Doc president. Commando style. That's Shannon. He also has a hard-to-beat panache ("Don't threaten me. It costs a fortune in flowers.") and, by the close, something more you will never have suspected. Before that time, however, this deals with the apparatus, Forsyth's forte, of the 100 day coup and it's all precision timed and metered down to the last mm. Definitely a man's man of a book - audacious and authoritative. (Kirkus Reviews)
