Hilsman gets the political-thriller formula almost perfect..punchy chapters, a myriad of secretive characters, a dynamic hero, a canyon of exotic locales and verbal jousting ultimately provide the fuel that keeps one reading.

Going it alone wasn't a very good idea.
"19 Angels" is a fun read and "page-turner" with great characters, and places; yet Hillsman manages with intelligence and understanding to touch all the finer points surrounding this real-life unresolved conflict.
Hilsman gets the political-thriller formula almost perfect, providing a wealth of background--touching on historical events, cultural idiosyncrasies, friction within ruling factions and religious debate--all smoothly interspersed within the story. Add to that already dynamic mix: short, punchy chapters, a myriad of secretive characters, a dynamic hero, a canyon of exotic locales and verbal jousting between protagonists that ultimately provides the fuel that keeps one reading.
Hilsman's style is more reportage than literary and there's a surprising lack of violence which some may find a detriment in this genre. I didn't. While the numerous characters sometimes got confusing, this is a small criticism when seen in relation to the overall effort.
