I know Guns. In two ways: As a fellow traveller to investor conferences in the early years of last decade striving to attract/retain investor interest in the stocks we were representing; and as the son-in-law of a cherished and inspiring colleague.
I did not know Guns. Seems he studies military history, knows how to fly; owned an aircraft in addition to his mastery on price/earnings multiples.
The combination of interests in military history, skills in flying aircrafts, and creative communication as an IR manager is telling in the way he narrates a story.
A story that could almost be true. A story that involves a few missiles going missing in Pakistan; ending up in the hands of jihadists; power play by super sleuths in Pakistan, China and India; cabals who are cunning; and politicians with aspirations. The story line is awesome, realistic and believable. The last line is predictable; but it is fun getting to the last line all the way.
The narration is awesome too. I read the first 25% over three/four sessions. I had to read the next 75% in one session.
India now has her own Robert Ludlum to write stories with an Indian background for Indian audience.
I look forward to his next book.
