Read full description of the books:
This book is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C !!!
Maybe you haven't recognized the name of the author, but this Hugh Laurie is THE Hugh Laurie who was the star on the TV series House, M.D..
Sure, maybe some of you would say "So what? He is an actor but can he write?" Oh, yes! He CAN write!
Pain is an event. It happens to you, and you deal with it in whatever way you can.
If you ever watched some episode of House, M.D. you can be familiarized with the personality of the character that Laurie portraited there, and you will find the main character here very much like.
The only good thing I've ever noticed about money, the only positive aspect of an otherwise pretty vulgar commodity, is that you can use it to buy things.
Maybe he is not so grumpy but he is in the very same level of cynicism with direct politically incorrect comments.
It is the middle of December now, and we are about to travel to Switzerland - where we plan to ski a little, relax a little, and shoot a Dutch politician a little.
He is an honest voice in the book, where you can't separate the view of the main character and the position of the author, and anyway that's not important since you will laugh a lot, BUT you will think a lot too.
Having a vote once every four years is not the same thing as democracy.
I laughed a lot, I pondered a lot and I had the time of my life reading this novel and due that, I am even including it in my "favorites" virtual shelf that I commented in other reviews, I am struggling to keep it to 10 books tops at any moment, maybe some title would go out or go in, but always only 10 books there.
This was the tricky bit. The really tricky bit, trickiness cubed.
Maybe when I said that I laughed a lot, you'd diminish the novel, saying "Oh, no! That must be a dumb book then!" But no, it isn't.
The humor here is not silly comedy but in fact it's smart and witty comments.
Laurie is totally politically incorrect in this book and gosh I thank him for being in that way.
He is an author with attitude and you will find that even the "offensive" comments are not made in a deliberated act for the sick purpose to offense somebody, no, if you really can get into the mood of the book, you will find that Laurie is just telling the story of some guy who talks in an infinite honest way.
Just because it's a bad job doesn't mean I need to do it badly.
The novel has a lot of combined genres, since you will find a detective novel merging into a espionage story, with a lot of military and politics stuff.
Each character, main or minor, has a purpose and one of the best things is that at some moments you will meet a really main character without realizing it, until the story would develop more, it will be when you would know it.
In my opinion, this book is the ones that when one is reading it, one thinks "Geez! For books like this one is that I love to read books!"
If you analyze the very title of the book, you will realize that the story isn't about terrorism, since I'd understand people finding without taste to read a humoristic story about terrorism, but this isn't the case, this novel is about selling guns, about the arms dealing business, and that's a totally different field, you will understand when you'd read the novel.
Give it a chance to the book. You won't regret it.

Read information about the authorBritish comedian Hugh Laurie, OBE could have easily taken another career track rather than that of well-known performer. As a secondary and college student, he was also a world-class oarsman. He wasn't the only one in the family to have a passion for the sport, however. His father won a gold medal at the 1948 London Olympics as part of the British national team. The youngest of four children, Laurie went to Eton College, perhaps Britain's best-known preparatory school. During his time there, he became involved in rowing. He quickly became one of the nation's best, and in 1977, he became one half of the national junior champion coxed pair. In the world junior championships held in Finland that year, he and his teammate finished fourth in the world.
The following year, Laurie entered Cambridge University, with the intention of studying archeology and anthropology. He was also intent on joining the prestigious rowing team, rowing in the 1980 Cambridge/Oxford boatrace. More information on the race can be found at BBC Sport
He reportedly became ill during his first year, however, and was forced to withdraw from the rowing competitions. While regaining his health, Laurie had his first experiences as a performer by getting involved with the Footlights Club, a famed undergraduate comedy revue group. In his last year at Cambridge, Laurie was elected President of the club, with fellow Footlighter Emma Thompson acting as Vice President.
Traditionally, at the end of the year, the Footlights take their act on the road throughout the nation. While on these tours, he met, via Thompson, a young playwright named Stephen Fry . They collaborated on a sketch called The Cellar Tapes , which they entered in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1981. They were awarded "Pick of the Fringe," enabling the duo, along with the other Footlight performers (including Thompson) to go on tour through England and eventually, Australia.
Soon thereafter, Laurie, Fry, Thompson, Robbie Coltrane , and Ben Elton formed the television sketch program Alfresco , eventually leading Laurie to the famous (in Britain, at least) Black Adder series, headed by Rowan Atkinson , and also to the Jeeves and Wooster series with Fry.
It wasn't long after these successes that he began appearing in films. In 1992, he appeared alongside fellow comedians Fry and Thompson, as well as Kenneth Branagh and Rita Rudner in the ensemble comedy Peter's Friends
He subsequently did outstanding work as a character actor in such films as Sense and Sensibility (1995) and 101 Dalmations (1996). In 1999, he took the lead in the adaptation of E.B. White's Stuart Little, playing the adopted father to a walking, talking, fully dressed mouse, a role he'd reprise in the film's 2002 sequel Stuart Little 2.
After a two year absence from the big-screen, Laurie returned to the multiplexes in 2004 with a supporting role in Flight of the Phoenix, a remake of the 1965 James Stewart action-adventure film about a group of plane-crash survivors who attempt to build a new plane from the wreckage. That same year Laurie essayed the titular role as the cynical but trailblazing Dr. Greg House in the primetime Fox Network television drama House .
Laurie is also a musician of note, invariably performing as a keyboardist with the rock band Poor White Trash and the Little Big Horns. He currently plays keyboards with Band From TV - a band featuring other television stars who perform to raise money for various charities. He added yet another profession to his lengthy list of accomplishments when, in 1996, he published his first novel, The Gun Seller. Married since 1989, he has three children with his wife, Jo.
