Book Review: Strait of Hormuz

Strait of Hormuz
by Davis Bunn 

A phone call from the U.S State Department puts Marc Royce again on assignment ferreting out rumors of a clandestine operation stretching from Asia to the Mideast. At stake is Iran's threat to blockade the narrow Strait of Hormuz, cutting off vital shipping routes and escalating global tensions.

Under the guise of investigating money laundering via high-end art purchases in Europe, Royce finds himself in Switzerland with only sketchy information, no backup, and without a single weapon other than his wits. His appointment with a gallery owner in Geneva ends with the man on the floor, a bullet through his chest. But it turns out Royce does have backup. The Mossad has sent someone to keep an eye on this undercover op, which is of great interest to the Israelis, And it's someone Royce knows...

Davis Bunn is an award-winning novelist and a lecturer in creative writing at the University of Oxford whose books have sold nearly seven million copies worldwide. 

In two short words, I'd describe this Davis Bunn book as a military drama. Unlike American Phoenix this isn't one of those descriptions of past historical books, but rather a story that you're thrown into. You feel like you're Marc Royce making the decisions, and feeling his anxiety. If you like The Phantom Patrol, you'll love reading this book.
