All The Young Warriors is by far the most accomplished and ambitious novel yet by Anthony Neil Smith. In ATYW, Smith touches on religious fanaticism and the impressionable American inner city youth misguided by recruitment vultures who feed their delusions by selling broken dreams and false prosperity with the acclimation for cause - a rebirth of faith. At the thrillers' heart lies a breaking man whose second lease on life is taken away at the hands of a merciless thug turned terrorist-in-training; Jilbriil. Having his partner and unborn child gunned down sets a turn of events in motion which sees the streets of Minnesota and the desert landscape of Somalia run red with vengeance and unjustified blood lust.

Bleeker (the meaning namesake 'bleak' not lost on the casual observer) mourns his partner's passing by fueling his rage across continents, leaving no stone untouched in his quest to rid the world of his personal demon. Accompanied by an unlikely alliance in the form of a local gangster whose son, Adem, has been caught up in the terrorist plight - Bleeker's investigation leads him down a path populated by extremists, pirates, killers, and government officials alike.

All The Young Warriors, for it's graphic depiction of murder and retribution, retains a sense of realism delivered through heart thumping emotion and pulse pounding clarity. The aspects of a world ravaged to ruin and ruled by violence, yet softened by a few kind souls is thought provoking and awe inspiring. Smith has delivered on one of the best books of 2011 with each chapter further evidence of his ability to demand a reader's attention and hold it until the very end. Captivating and utterly essential. 5 stars.

The plot, in short: on their way to the airport, an American-Somali gang-banger and his relatively innocent friend shoot two cops in Minnesota. They're on their way to Somalia to join the civil war and "figure out what it's like to be Somalia." The gang-banger finds his true calling in the war; the innocent friend finds that he's out of his depth. Meanwhile, the lover of one of the slain cops and the father of the innocent friend begin looking for the pair, tracking them through the criminal underworld of Minnesota and all the way to Somalia.

This is a dark, violent book. Smith doesn't shy away from the violence visited on people, especially in Somalia. In Smith's hands, this adds to, rather than detracts from, the story. The book moves fast, and the suspense ratchets up throughout. There is also an authenticity to this book -- I'm not aware that the author visited Somalia for research, but the book certainly reads like he did.

After his outstanding YELLOW MEDICINE and HOGDOGGIN' (not to mention his e-only CHOKE ON YOUR LIES), I'd been eagerly waiting for a new Anthony Neil Smith book -- I'm happy to report that I was not disappointed.

I really, really enjoyed this book for a number of different reasons. The complexity of plot was terrific and really kept me turning the pages. The locations were outstanding, from the freezing environments of Minnesota to the heat, dust and chaos of Somalia. And it wasn't just the locations that offered the contrasts ---- you had the two 'pairs' of men that the story revolves around; Bleeker and Mustafa, and JibriiL and Adem, who due to their actions and motivations were forced to work together to survive but were never totally comfortable in each others company. You also had contrasts in religion, Bleeker's Christian motivations for revenge and Jibriil's drive for Muslim rule in Mogadishu. You also had the female characters portrayed from very different aspects providing a lot to think about beyond the story itself. This book is a massive departure from Anthony Neil Smith's previous work and a significant advancement in his ambition and ability to tell a great story. And a book that will give you a great deal to think about well after you have finished it.

It's curious how many years one can go without reading a book about Somali gangs and pirates, and then to read two in one year...

Earlier this year, I read "Crossbones," of which I wrote: "A young man of Somali descent disappears from his Minneapolis home. His stepfather, Ahl, and uncle, Malik, a journalist, travel to Somalia in an attempt to find him and bring him home. This is the post-Blackhawk Down Somalia, before and in the early days of the Ethiopian invasion to drive out the Islamic Courts and restore - with U.S. backing - a more secular government. It is a dangerous country for everyone, particularly journalists and opponents of the Courts. The author takes the reader on a lengthy tour of recent Somali history and politics, Islamic thought in urban and rural Somalia, piracy and fishing disputes, kidnapping as a political and economic weapon, terrorism and bombing, and international relations in the Horn of Africa. The author, Nuruddin Farah, takes too much time dealing with family back-and-forth discussions about their histories and the Somali character, and many of the characters within the family are among the least interesting. Of more interest are the pirates, Shabbab terrorists, and their financial enablers. It's a good read, but not a great one."

"All the Young Warriors" treats essentially the same subject, but in a very different way. Anthony Neil Smith has written an action novel that pairs a burned-out, small-town, Minnesota cop with a former Minneapolis gang-banger of Somali descent to bring back from Somalia the killer(s) of the cop's girlfriend; one of whom might be the Somali's son. Stateside, they battle to form a trusting relationship while working to break the chain of recruitment to jihad of young Somali-Americans living in the nation's heartland.
