Only the Dead – Hamilton Wende

by BookPlaza (Verified)


Only the Dead is Wende’s seventh book, but is the second book in the Sebastian Burke series and the sequel to House of War. “The book is about a new way of war, a war without courage,” Wende said, referring to the engagement of predator drones in war zones. It is also loosely based on Joseph Kony, head of the Lord’s Resistance Army, a Ugandan guerrilla group, and includes Wende’s personal attraction to lion mythology. Curnow said that the novel was “a cracker of a read. Intelligent and compelling with taut writing”.
