Review of Blood Red Palms

A little bit of business first.....I received this ebook for free in exchange for an honest review but opinions are my own.  I was interested in reading this book because the description had me more than a little intrigued.   The story is about a German engineer named Rudi Eichner who is on a routine trip to Tunisia when his plane is shot down. It is May of 1978 and it turns out their plane is shot down over Libya ( during Gaddaffi era). The plane crashes and when Rudi wakes he finds the pilot dead and he is stranded in the middle of the Sahara.  The story then really takes off.  Rudi is taken hostage and held in a PLO camp.  I do not want to give away too many details but what happens next involves a rescue, breaking up a white slave trade of young females, and surprisingly a love story.  I had to begin the story twice because it was a little too technical for me. The author I believe wants to make sure the reader gets a good understanding of the time during which the story takes place.  I would not recommend this story to just anyone but if you love history and intrigue this is the book for you.  The only major issue I found with the book was the way the love story happens so quickly.

The author, Peter Klessa Ramazani, is quite the accomplished man. He has traveled all over the world and has actually been an engineer among other pursuits. He has written other books as well. You can purchase your own copy of this book here
