Finished reading: Amok by Barry Eisler đź“š

I have really enjoyed Barry Eisler’s series of books, starting from Rain Fall (renamed A Clean Kill in Tokyo), and covering the stories—and backstories—of the characters found across the series.

Amok is the origin story of character Carl “Dox” Williams, and is a compelling read set during the Indonesian occupation of Timor Leste. Eisler winds in historical aspects into the story, and provides an insight Dox’s early beginnings.

As with all Eisler’s books it is well researched (read the end notes), and is violent and sometimes confronting. But so is history!

A great read.
