Soundly executed, smart and fast paced, in Back Door Down Zodrow takes a plausible central scenario, and delivers a power packed techno-thriller. With increasing numbers of thrillers centring on protagonists who are overly masochistic, he breaks the mould with an intelligent lead and well-wrought dialogue as events evolve in tightly focused chapters that take us the crux of his narrative. Clever and inventive, his plot is commendably non-West-centric and highly plausible with Zodrow rarely sparing detail. Sally Bolt feels authentic, the pitch and momentum hold your focus and on this level, it works as pure entertainment as well as a model of implacable storytelling. But dig a little deeper and it's also a poignant reflection of the times we live in. Evoking a strong sense of place, moral choices, immoral certainties, human nature and the vagrancies of fate Zodrow holds us in his grip and leaves with something to think about beyond what proves to be a cracking ending.
As good as the genre gets, Back Door Down proves a fast, entertaining and unpredictable story with a great cast of characters. One to add to your must read list it is highly recommended.

well penned in smoke-and-mirrors to keep me
Scientist, Ishmael Khan slips in the US under
the "stupid American" nose on a razor-edge
timer by foot, car, boat, internet, paper trail
to every technical nook and pay-as-you-go
cranny for the one, last chemical to complete
his dirty bomb; safely hidden in a Saipan
Saipan. An island fully endowed with corruption;
permits and requires: dishonesty. As a customer
service, self-appointed, Mayor Remi Tan is the man,
kingpin of pay dirt. Palm his hand and that hand
buys police protection, nepotism officials wink-wink,
guns for hire, drug dealers. No problem, terrorist's
bankroll flushes in from back home, Pakistan
Bored, pedophile, Jason Richardson III, labeled,
"sex degenerate" moneys his billionaire in underworld
deals - because he can - including exotic, very young
girls. Bonanza, an Elizabeth Taylor look-alike teenager
bought, cost a million and paid for; another specialty
of the Mayor of sorts.
Sally Bolt, covert operative swaps trained CIA rules of
engagement with her own. Mom's rules. Nothing more
adrenal-charged than a driven mother who faces
crises after crises: arrests, beatings, near rape, to
find her daughter. Sally will never see or meet
kidnapper, Jason Richardson the Third
A network of monster proportion intrigue left me
annoyingly guessing from Start-to-Finish.
