Summary

Blood diamonds, oil, and a greedy dictator scar the landscape and citizens of West Africa in this action-packed military thriller.

Disgraced and virtually bankrupt, ex-Sgt. Alex Dalloway joins the mercenary brigade tasked to protect the newly elected president of the illegal state of Salonga. But the promise of diamonds is only part of the attraction for Alex. Bent on avenging the deaths of his men, killed years ago in the jungles, Dalloway finds himself once again on the border of Sierra Leone and Liberia.

A greedy corporation lusting after mining rights, ruthless mercenaries, a madman hungry for power, and child soldiers converge to tell the tale of this bloody and horrifying part of West-African history.

Get your copy and join this fast paced adventure into the dark side of Africa, where sometimes human life is the most invaluable commodity.

Bloody Diamonds

Excellent realistic tale from South Africa of a Brit ex-soldier turned mercenary caught up in Way More than he bargained for. His sweetheart back home is connected to some government higher-ups and between them both they try to stop some very bad guys from getting away with Murder, literally. Lots of action and blood, with several other plot lines moving independently, coming together for a grand finale. Definitely worth a listen/read. I got mine from Audiobooks Unleashed.

Very touching and traumatic event brought to life

This is the amazing story concerning the search for oil and diamonds in Africa and the horrific events surrounding it. I'm not sure if this is an entirely true story but it definitely comes across like it could be. I listened to each word and couldn't believe that men could be so evil to others. I don't know whether the alcohol and drugs consumed by the man that wanted to run the distribution of the oil and diamonds influenced the evil that flowed from him or if he was just plain evil itself. This story gives us an inside view of what could have happened to the poor people of this section of Africa and the men in England who were financing it. I pray that things are totally different for these people now thanks to the bravery of a few. An excellent book!

Dark subject well done

Riveting story, the subject was a little much of the brutality and deception the dark history of Sierra Leone. The author did a good job of dealing with a person who has dark motives. Audio was good. Given audio for my voluntary review
