Ken has been unkindly compared to Ludlum and Dan Brown in the past. I say unkindly, because I've read all of Ken's books and I think he's better than either of those two illustrious authors. Personally, I would do it the other way and compare Ludlum and Brown to Ken Fry.
I've often talked about one of the joys of being an indie author and reviewer as being that I get to discover new, exciting talent before anyone else and get to share that with the world. Ken, may be getting a little long in the tooth, but he is one of the freshest, most exciting, new indie authors in the marketplace today.
It gives me enormous pleasure, therefore, to be able to present Ken's new book on Sierra Leone for your delight and delectation.
Read the story of Sierra Leone and its people in this bloody, harrowing, and heartbreaking suspense thriller.
This is a work of fiction, except for the parts that really happened.
Vast deposits of diamonds and oil are found in land overlapping both Sierra Leone and Liberia. A scramble ensues to secure the mining and drilling rights of both commodities. Leading the race is the Mining Earth & Ocean Corp. (MEO).
To amass and control this wealth, the creation of an illegal state called Salonga is proposed. The nominated ruler, backed and supported by the MEO, is a former RUF commander - General Icechi Walker, known as 'Body Chop' - a suspected mass murderer involved in countless atrocities.
As the battle for control of the land unravels, stories spread of horrific bloody massacres and mutilations in towns and villages, many of them by child soldiers. The capital, Freetown, is threatened by a full-blown mindless rebellion led by the RUF.
To secure power, Body Chop, with the help of the MEO, engages the protection of a private mercenary army. But control will not be handed to him so easily.
Disgraced, virtually bankrupt, ex-Sgt. Alex Dalloway, is a major part of the mercenary brigade. He has a very personal and murderous agenda to locate the Army officer who tortured and killed his men years ago in the jungles of Sierra Leone. He begins to suspect the former RUF commander's involvement.
His personal life in shambles, Dalloway goes against Body Chop and his supporters, to obtain justice for his men and all the innocent lives lost at the hands of the RUF.
He was a former publisher before deciding to retire and devote his full time to writing. He now lives in the UK and shares his home with 'Dickens' his Shetland Sheepdog.
Fry has published 7 suspense thrillers with more to be released in 2017. Red Ground, The Lazarus Succession, Suicide Seeds, The Brodsky Affair, Dying Days, and 2 short stories, Check Mate and Is That You, Jim?
