Ahriman: The Spirit of Destruction takes places in Kuwait. The Agency, an American counter-terrorist unit, thinks a terrorist attack is imminent when a message is intercepted. They send Petra Shirazi to investigate. A former field agent in Teheran, she transferred to a research position when one of her informant got compromised. Now she has to get back and face her worst nightmares while the clock is ticking. Who is the target?
Puja Guha succeeds to deliver a great first novel, that juggles well action and political intrigues. The book is self-published but the writing flows smoothly and the quality is there from the beginning to the end. The refreshing story is well supported by the main character. Finally a strong female hero with a brain and some muscles!
If you are looking for a strong female part, or you love spy stories and Middle-East intricate policies, then buy Ahriman: The Spirit of Destruction which, once again, demonstrates that self-published books can be as good as traditionally published ones.
