My Feelings:

Let's give ‘em something to think about!
Another day, another mission. Now a fully fledged member of covert military squad Delta Unit, Mitch is thrust straight back into the battle zone. And there’s more at stake then ever before.
The Mission: smuggle an undercover peace negotiator through war-torn Afghanistan to the secret hideout of a powerful Taliban leader.
The Squad: elite, Black-Ops soldiers -; Mitch, Gaz, Two Moons, Tug, Benny and Nelson – codename, Delta Unit.
Six men set out on the mission. How many will come back?

My Review:
Death in the Desert is just as it’s prequel Jungle Kill packed with action and a setting that leaves nothing to it’s imagination.

The guys are at another mission far away from their hometown. I like the dialogue between the guys. It feels realistic, just the way soldiers would talk to each other while their on a mission together. I didn’t think the mission was a fair one, the whole time I was worrying if they made the right choice to take this one. So I can honestly say that there is a lot of suspense.

I can’t get enough of the action, it’s really good. I was constantly scared for them and hoping that they would be alright. With every piece of information that you get, you know that the author has been into the military himself. It’s just too good.

The setting of the story is described very well. I never been to Afghanistan, but with the photo’s that I saw in the news and the description the author gives I got a pretty clear picture.

Death in the Desert is a great book for action lovers and an even greater give away for boys up to 12! I’m looking forward to read the next instalment.

I don't read a lot of action/suspense novels. Mainly because I'd be worrying a lot about the decisions that are made too. It's good to know the author provided clear descriptions. I think that would just add to the thrill ride.

Oh I have a cousin who would love this book. He might still be a bit too young, but maybe not. He's a pretty smart cookie! Great review!
