The Birthday Girl by Stephen Leather

I found this book enthralling and at the same time disturbing to think that if the attrocities written in the book are true or even close to true every world leader who was in power at the time should hang there head in shame and be publicly named and shamed. It was an attempt to write a Grisham-type thriller - young girl pursued by bad guys.

A bit far-fetched maybe, I guess I was thinking in movie terms. On a clandestine mission to fragmented Yugoslavia to sell the devices to the Christian Serbs, Tony is taken hostage by Bosnian Muslims. And Mersiha has been trained to kill. Aside from falling in and out if accents, the pathetic voices made this a frustrating story. His bestsellers have been translated into more than ten languages. I told him yesterday and he was very pleased. Aside from falling in and out if accents, the pathetic voices made this a frustrating story.

I think it's time to change author for a while. And when she discovers that Freeman's company is being subjected to a sinister takeover bid, she decides to help - whatever the risks. The consequences of her actions are lethal, for Mersiha has unearthed a conspiracy of terrifying proportions. The action is quick paced; the characters as well rounded as you can get in the thriller genre; and every action is accounted for by motive. The reason I had to give this novel by Stephen Leather 4 stars instead of 5 was the fact that he used too many British-isms, e.

I am disappointed that Read narrates so many of Leather's books, especially any involving Americans which is an accent that he just can't do, as I'm sure he's ruining the experience. . When the ending involved a pursuit from Baltimore to the Colorado Rockies, and, specifically, the final chase of a hot air balloon by Bad Guys on snow mobiles, it began to read like a James Bond thriller. And when, on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, she discovers that two of her father's company shareholders have made him an offer he's not expected to refuse, she decides to help. I am a Stephen Leather fan and have read a lot of his books, finding them entertaining, well thought out and full of strong character. I found the story extremely long-winded, especially the 'end' scene getting away from the gangsters, with far too many erotic scenes for a 'thriller' and a predictable ending making the whole read one I wished I'd skipped. But the Birthday a girl is a classic - an edge - of - your- seat thriller that's also well written and funny.

But Mersiha has been trained to kill. The consequences of her actions are lethal, for Mersiha has unearthed a conspiracy of terrifying proportions. We do not have similar taste in books, unlike my mom and me, but I thought let's try. Tony Freeman rescued Mersiha when she was fighting for her life in war-torn Yugoslavia. However the book is a good read even so at times in my opinion disturbing but definitley thought provoking however it has a beginning an unexpected middle and an end. But Mersiha has been trained to kill. That's half the problem with the book industry- pretentious stuff like The Road by Cormac McCarthy, they waltz away with all the prizes.
