The big killing is a book full of killing. Full of spectacular killings, somewhat too much in my opinion. It is very well written. You Get a feeling of beeing in Western Africa. You can smell all the smells from rubbish and feel all the warm nights. You read about the heavy rain as if you sit in the car together with Bruce. I like the book and will read the other books from Africa as well.

Robert Wilson nails Central West Africa dead on target . The plot does not disappoint , and the characters radiate personalities with a host of human flaws and frailties that are avoided by many authors today. A great read.

Wilson seems happier with his West African locales than he does with Spain, where his novels get bogged down in scenery and slow paced character development. This novel moves with punch and direction, steering the reader through unusual locations, a post-colonial world of ruthless energy, sinking back into tribalism. well worth reading although it helps to start with the first novel and work up to this one.
