Stone the Devil
Political Action Adventure
by Peter Sinclair Ellis
"Stone the Devil is the story of a nuclear bomb that was manufactured as a result of religious conviction and its journey from the Afrikaner Right Wing into the hands of the Islamic state. It is a story of political intrigue and deceit, of corruption and greed, and of cruelty often inflicted in the name of God. It is a story of the machinations of the secretive Afrikaner Broederbond in former apartheid South Africa, of the savagery and cruelty of Boko Haram, and of the beheadings and single-minded application of Sharia Law by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and the newly declared Caliphate. It is a story of the significance of the number 7—to some! The reader is taken on a roller-coaster ride from the battle fields of South West Africa (Namibia) and Angola, through suburban crime in the streets of Pretoria and Birmingham, the bombing of the US Embassy in Nairobi, the killing fields of the DRC and Rwanda, and to the climax in Borno Province, Nigeria." -----
Stone the Devil, by Peter Sinclair Ellis, the story of a nuclear bomb that was manufactured as a result of religious conviction, it's ultimate destination, the sky over New York! Going beyond the standard political conflict - war novel, "Stone the Devil" explores international conflicts and the impact it has on society from many angles - a religious one, a political one, a nuclear one and last but not least a human one. A very balanced action novel, keeping the exact amount of action, character development and descriptive passages. It's just one of those books that I find very hard not to like - as it is both complex and comprehensive, both thought provoking and relaxing, both realistic and with the right amount of fictional details inserted in the story line.
