Item description for Bound to Get Burned by Mark R. O'Neill...

Set against the background of international oil politics in the volatile Middle East, Bound To Get Burned stages a bold espionage tale and weaves through political and military stratums with a commanding panache that is sure to keep you gripping to the end. An intelligence officer, Mark O'Neill focuses a shape light on the most troubling threat confronting Americans today: the instability of oil prices and the consequences of supply disruption. With daring strokes, he delves into intimate details of the socio-politics in the Persian Gulf, and describes the delicate balance of power in the region with the expanse of an insider's account. The novel pokes into the role of the State Department and Army officials, illustrates the character of young military officers, and provides a rare glimpse behind the veil of anti-western Saudi Arabia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bound to Get Burned?

Action - Adventure - Intrigue - Great Mix!  Aug 10, 2007
O'Neill has created a new genre - all the action of a James Bond flick with the pithy insights of an insider who has really "been there and done that." Where Clancy and Brown extrapolate from the technology trade journals, O'Neill stays firmly grounded in the here and now to create an exciting, well-paced adventure yarn that may well be taking place today! If you enjoy fiction with a healthy dose of reality, a bit of raw romance, and a shooter's point of view, you'll enjoy this. Great read for the beach or cross country plane ride. Enjoy!
A "must read" book!  Jul 30, 2007
This is a fun book. There are a couple of things to like about this thriller. First, it just feels very authentic. You can tell the author did quite a bit of research or has spent serious time in the core of the middle east. I learned a lot just reading the book. Second, it's a thriller! What the heck is really going to happen to this guy and the military plot that simmers all around him? You never find out to the end, and I think there is plenty that surprised me by the end of the book. What more would you want out of a reading experience other than A) being taken on a thrilling ride and B) gaining some exposure to a very topical subject (the Middle East). Most American readers would enjoy this book, even those not particularly into military thrillers.
Great Read  Jul 20, 2007
This was a really good summer reading novel. I was impressed by the detail about the Mid East, especially the oil industry and Saudi Arabia. I'm expecting another book to follow with Captain Chevalier as the main character.
What a ride !  Sep 27, 2006
This is a book that begs for screen time ! It is a roller coaster ride that takes you thru the real life grit of the intelligence community in the hottest area of the world needing more of it ! It exposes the quagmire of circles that the average man will never understand in ways you can't help but easily see while stil retaining it's mystery .. It is a total in your face "REAL" wicked smart suspense thriller. I would say that Mr. Clancy has to watch out and I look forward to more from this Author ! Only an insider could write this best and it was more than well done ! OUTSTANDING ! BUY THIS BOOK ! John
Set-up like a film  Mar 30, 2006
I found an advance copy of this novel at my postal center, laying on the table. So, I took it home and read it.

I really enjoyed the novel. I found it sensual, exciting and fun. The down-side is that it gets pretty military at some points. And I'm not a military guy.

The story tells about Captain Francis "Franco" Chevalier who is caught in an impossible situation, with a corrupt boss and an impossible task -- stopy a Saudi Army Colonel from overthrowing the government.

The story is unique in that there are two antagonists -- a Saudi Army Colonel and a wealthy British man.

I think this would make a good film. It has a solid set-up. Two good acts in the middle. Then, it has an ending that is totally different than the first 2/3s of the movie. Plus, a great surprise at the end. The suprise actually shows you your biases in thinkging about the Middle East.

The language and sentence structure of the writing are a little more complex than you'll find in the average "thriller" from Janet Evanovich or Tom Clancy. I think that made it a more valuable and ejoyable read. I also like that the main character sticks up for French-Americans!
