The most notable quality of the writer beside his present tense writing style is that he can present a tough subject in an appealing way in his books. Just for instance, his most famous novel series John Corey series has 7 novels tills now.
John Corey, a policy officer turned unlikely FBI special agent, is actually clashing with a terrorist who desires to bomb USA in order to seek revenge in The Lion’s game, Nelson’s second novel of the series. So, what’s interesting about it?
The premise of the novel is actually based on a real event and that is American Bombing of Libya on April 15th, 1986 where Gadhafi’s family members got serious damage. Well, that’s not the premise.
The premise is that one of the bombs goes off the course and kills the wrong people residing at their home, but only a 14-year boy survives. Well, there’s we get our terrorist named Assad, who was created by Nelson to create the appealing premise. The 14 year old boy Asad, meaning lion in Arabic, reaches USA 14 years later only to seek revenge.
Going a little out of context, it doesn’t matter whether Gadhafi orchestrated his daughter death or not aftermath the bombing. In the Nelson novel, she sure died, as that was the mainstream notion back then. What really matters is how countries aggressive diplomatic decisions such as bombing can create only more violence and kill innocent people if not undertaken accurately. Why should innocent people die after all?
