Dancing with the Vodka Terrorists by Rob Ferguson
Publisher: Iguana Books (December 2012)
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
When Rob Ferguson went off to the five former Soviet 'Stans of Central Asia to work on a project to save the rapidly disappearing Aral Sea, he expected to have challenges and adventures, but he didn't anticipate ending up a suspect in a brutal murder investigation. Dancing with Vodka Terrorists is a tragicomic farce and an engrossing real-life thriller told with panache and wry humour and stars a bizarre cast of corrupt apparatchiks, jolly consultants, devious autocrats and a bewitching belly-dancer who ends up gutted in a bathtub. Somehow Ferguson survives it all, wit still intact.
I thought the book started off slowly but the author won me over with his skewed way of looking at very serious situation. He has written an entertaining, funny thriller about murder. Which is right up my dark alley.
