Harry says that worrying about trivial things like being stood up are pointless when much worse things in life can happen, then he begins telling John the horror story of how he nearly lost his life twenty-eight years earlier. Harry Ramshaw explains how he was a junior minister in The Foreign Office and how he had access to information about important people in most countries and that he knew the degree of power they had, and their vices. He explains how when his party was defeated in the elections, and therefore lost his job, he then set himself up as an agent for the supply of high-end performance and luxury cars to the rulers of oil-rich countries in the Middle East, the dictators, and their cronies. He explains how he had a good reputation as a middleman between customers and manufacturers, but then one day he had made the big mistake of doing business with two Middle Eastern men for his services to have a custom made car for a well-known monster and cruel psychopath who happens to have a lot of power. Though Harry tries to get out of his greedy dilemma, what happens next will have you sitting on the edge of your seat as the story takes you on a ride of intrigue and horror right to the very end. I have read many books by John M W Smith and they are all different, but extremely well written. The author writes from the heart and obviously from his own experiences, and at the moment he is my favourite author. I have already begun reading another one of his books and I look forward to reading the next one in this series. I highly recommend this book and I certainly learnt things I never knew.
An Unlawful Act In Libya (Based on a true story)
Just as his previous book in this series " Unlawful in Libya" the book cover draws the reader into thinking the tale will be about one thing and it turns out not to be true. I really tried to out think John in this book but I failed.
Since this is a book less than 150 pages, I will not give you a book report that might contain spoilers. Instead I will encourage you to take a leap of faith that I would not steer you wrong, and read a really good book. Then if I am correct, you might want to try other of John M W Smith's books to assure yourself that this is not a fluke.
The setting of the story is one which many of us have found ourselves in and can relate to, Sitting in a bar and listening to the tales of others can be boring and unfulfilling and you wonder why you even spent your time listening! Not so with A Murderous Act in Iraq. The story teller, Harry Ramshaw tells of a time in his life when he was visiting Iraq.The tale, in itself is believable, told coherently and interesting - so interesting I couldn't put it down.
I can't mention the content of the story but suffice to say it holds a moral and advice for the character John. We also read of power, the struggle for and against, brutality and individuals deciding where their loyalties actually lie.
An absolute flawless short story from John M W Smith
