I have read several of Daniel Eastermans books and found them very enjoyable. He writes well researched thrillers (in the style of Frederick Forsyth) and this book, "The Sword", doesn't disappoint.
The narrator, Sean Barrett is terrific. He has a clear pronunciation and his control of arabic and various british accents is excellent.
This is my first Daniel Easterman book and I found it excellent.Good story on a very real background.
A really good but upsetting listen at times. It graphically depicts suicide bombing and the ruthlessness of fundamentalism. At times the desciptions were almost too vivid but the courage of the main charecters kept you going. It also ends out ok in the end, a great read that makes you think and cry.
