"Back to Somalia" by Glenn A. Bell

"Back to Somalia" by Glenn A. Bell falls under the militaristic adventure category. It is about a pilot that goes to Somalia at the request of the CIA. He must rescue a bomb in Somalia that is linked to terrorism. Things get heated when the pilot's beau is kidnapped and forced to help the enemy. The setting changes but is not too hard to keep up with. The narration describes how an aircraft takes off and lands in great detail, but, unfortunately, no aerodynamics are heavily discussed. This book has a nice balance between dialog and straight prose, and the ending is not too predictable. Overall, for those that relish adventure and don't have anything against the United States army, this book will not let them down. However, due to the nature of the story, this book is not intended for small children.
