Book Summary

Take one of the most ruthless and bloody dictators in modern history. Add a dash of smallpox, one of the most feared diseases of all time. Blend in a soupcon of black magic and superstition, the like of which will make your hair stand on end. Whip into these ingredients one psychopathic colonel whose appetite for murder is equalled only by his taste for the bizarre. Season liberally with alcohol-marinated soldiers, who rob and kill in broad daylight. Whisk briefly and pour over a strategy for victory where you have decimated your enemy before you have even declared war on them. Turn up the heat and simmer within one bankrupt country in complete anarchy after all the money has been spent on buying luxury goods for a hedonistic army elite---and finally sprinkle on two doctors, one Scottish and one Kenyan, who are bursting with the fragrant aroma of naivety and optimism. Garnish with a narrative that moves with breakneck speed, and serve while still piping hot.
And what shall you call your culinary chef-d'oeuvre? How about A Crazy Act In Uganda?
(Also available on Amazon are the first two books in The Dictator Thriller Series, An Unlawful Act In Libya, and A Murderous Act In Iraq).

About the Author

A writer who has had many stories published in the women's weekly magazines and literary journals, John was drawn to writing at an early age. At one time in his teenage years he was reading one book a day---the subject didn't matter, but it needed to grab his interest in the first couple of pages, or he would abandon it. And this is the rule he has since applied to all his writing, believing that if you haven't grabbed the reader straight away, you are not writing well enough.. After graduating with an Honors Degree in History he spent many years in academic publishing, at last leaving to pursue his long-held dream of becoming a writer. "Easily among the very best new writers we have seen", "fresh and original", "creates life-like characters---maybe too life-like" (whatever that means!), are some of the comments made by literary reviewers and consultants about his work. His Wacky/Scary Stories Series featuring female protagonists and twist/surprise endings was bought by a Russian publisher for use as English Language Teaching (ELT) material. However, when they were released, such was their popularity that quite apart from their use as ELT material, the series became a favourite with Russian readers for its sheer quality and uniqueness as a literary form in its own right. John was reliably informed by one of the translators that at one time the books were at the top of the bestseller list at the best bookshop in Moscow!
John's favorite band is The Moody Blues.
