“Red Ground” is a story of greed, corruption and redemption amid a bloody conflict in Africa. With a fortune in diamonds at stake, a corrupt corporation, mercenaries, and a power-hungry revolutionary vie for survival amid the chaos. Although the story is a work of fiction, it is a realistic portrayal of those involved in the mining of and profit from blood diamonds, offering an insider’s perspective into this dark and dangerous world. The story is full of action, including many violent scenes, and pulls the reader into the story from the first chapter until the last. I don’t generally read books of this nature but found that it gave me a better perspective on the struggles in Africa and made me appreciate my own life in the process. I highly recommend this book for those seeking a good action story with a dose of introspection."
