Book review: Execution of Justice, by Patrick Dent

Execution of Justice

Execution of Justice, by Patrick Dent, is an action thriller set in the early 1970s during the oil-crisis, a story that takes the reader behind the scenes of political and power-intrigue, and the manipulation of the oil market. In this story of fast-paced blood and guts, we follow several parallel threads as the daughter of a US senator is kidnapped in Brazil; as American spies sent to ferret out an underworld trafficker start showing up dead; and the development of a secret plot to force the hand of Arab oil-magnates and put America in control of their oil reserves. Lots of twists and turns, bloody encounters, killing and mayhem. Although the outcome seems obvious, it nonetheless draws one to the end of the story to find out what happens, only to discover a twisted-turn of events which no one could have expected.
