Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow... If you've never read conrad before, read this. Most of his other books are about sailing, and the sea, but this one is about terrorism, and is very well done. It's the story of a man, his wife and her younger brother. It's also a tale of a terrorism, murder, betrayal, and utter desolation. Please, for the good of humanity, read this book. The english is rather high-brow, but all and all it is absolutely amazing.
