Reviews - What do customers think about Blood Money?

Intriguing  Oct 16, 2003
When the whole world has been threatened by war, what better book to read than a story about an ex-legionnaire getting himself pulled into a scheme to kill an Islamic leader.

That's what happens to Johnny (not me, but the main character in the book). Formerly a member of the French Foreign Legion, he's on his way home but meets a girl, innocent at first, but with a background that might surprise him.

This first part of the story tells of the life of a soldier. This unlocks a new world where every gesture might be a threat, or a sexual innuendo. For those who are disgusted by macho men obsessed with women, hang on for about 100 pages, because it's worth it. After Gill explains the history and the differences between West and East, Christians and Muslims, you get pulled into the story as well, dying to find out what will happen next and if you could unlock some secrets surrounding actual events. Gill is an excellent teacher in this regard and I for one now have a better vision on the "why" of it all.

Set in France, you can't avoid the occasional francophone term - and sometimes Gill seems to go overboard with them - but luckily he knows how to captivate his reader with his knowledge of the military in all its forms. Gill isn't so much telling a tale than informing the public about what might really be going on outside our little homes. He's so convincing, you'll start to doubt what's real and what's not - what is fact and what is fiction.

Definitely worth a read, "Blood Money" shows there's a lot more to our world than what we see. You may be appalled, you may be fascinated, but you'll definitely be intrigued.

 
Wanna know about terrorist cells ?  Jan 9, 2003
Blood Money

Will the 'War on Terror' really succeed? Why do the Western governments ignore terrorism in Kashmir and Chechnya? Are there really any good guys and bad guys? Finally, Azam Gill, a former mercenary himself, answers these questions, and others, in his fascinating book, Blood Money.

Johnny Kilvington Beresford , an ex-SAS and ex-Legionnaire and the beautiful, intelligent Nathalie Le Viallon, a high school teacher are pawns in a chess game played by terrorist masterminds and Western agencies, whose lives are 'collateral damage' if either side lose. Will they live to love?

Sweeping from the seedy, mercenary bars in Marseilles to the beautiful island of Madagascar, from the invisible monitoring stations of the American National Security Agency to the environmental summits and universities in France, Gill weaves a web of intrigue, mystery and suspense which surprises
with its honesty, inside knowledge about mercenary mechanics and the astonishing simplicity of terrorist operations.

Azam Gill is a former intelligence officer of the Pakistan Intelligence Agency (ISI) and an ex-Legionnaire. The French Foreign Legion was originally founded by King Louis Philippe to serve in the French colonies. Headquartered at Aubagne, near Marseille, now about 60% of its members are foreign volunteers who, upon joining, swear an oath of allegiance to the legion but not to France.Because of its reticence about the backgrounds of
its enlistees, the French foreign legion has acquired a reputation for attracting fugitives from justice.

Blood Money is a page turner, and Gill manages to combine action, humor and love without making it sound like a Jackie Chan or James Bond script. The reader will identify events that were termed "unfortunate disasters" or "accidents" by the media. Gill explains the behind-the-scenes that caused these "disasters". It is difficult to distinguish fact from fiction which is the primary strength of this book. After reading Blood Money, one will never view an environmental summit or a university professor in quite the same way again.

Move over Tom Clancy, we now have a real spy who also happens to be a master storyteller.

Fascinating  Jul 18, 2002
Azam Gill has done it again with a fascinating thriller. Much food for thought here.
