Critic Reviews

"This is a man with 'Adventure' as his middle name. The book captivated me from the start.... Mike writes in a galloping, eye-witness-type style with flashes of droll humour." (Journalist Niki Moore)

A wonderful chapter in Mike Hoare's memoirs.

This was another account of some of the events in the life a real adventurer and all around character. Unlike the other books written by this author that recount his exploits as a mercenary leader and soldier, this book focuses on some of the author's other adventures on the Dark Continent.

Mike Hoare is an interesting man and has a dry sense of humor that really comes through in the narration. Audio is really the way to experience this book, and I like the fact that the author himself is the narrator.
