Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just another pretty suspense Eric E. Wright’s second novel, Captives of Minara is not just another well written fast moving adventure novel; it is a thoughful and well delivered expose of modern Pakistan- where corruption meet the everyday life of good people. As such, we can place Captives of Minara in the same class as The Constant Gardener by John Le Carré. No wonder it has just won the 2010 Word Guild Canadian Writing Award for best suspense/mystery novel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern day Slavery The second in the Josh Radley suspense series, this one takes place in Pakistan. Mr. Wright's knowledge of the Pakistani people and culture is evident, along with the languages, having served as a missionary to that country. Josh Radley is there to write articles about an archeological dig, but the problem of human trafficking hits close to home as his daughter is kidnapped. Josh must deal with corrupt officials and religious fanatics. He is frantic to find his daughter and doesn't know who to trust. A few other characters from The Lightning File feature in this story as well. I also liked that the characters were unabashedly Canadian.
