Lilian Roberts, an accomplished author in multiple genres, took time out of her schedule and reviewed Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office. Here’s what she said:
“This is not the typical book that I would usually read. However a friend of mine suggested that I needed to take a look at it, advising that it is a very exciting story. I was pleasantly surprised to find that in fact it was a great read.
It is an exhilarating story that begins in Multan during a press conference, of the newly elected Prime Minister. Reporters that want answers about the violence and the instability in Karachi, trail him everywhere hoping to get the responses they need.
The hero of the story is Kamal Khan who gets involved and uncovers a terrorist conspiracy with a large amount of firing arms and a huge facility where the terrorist are being trained. He is a very courageous man and determined to succeed in motivating different agencies to work together in order to neutralize these terrorists. He gets involved in many scary situations that made me hold my breath, clench on to the book tighter and left me in wonder of how the author came up with such a smart way to intertwine the situations, the outcome and my emotions.
“Agency Rules” by Khalid Muhammad is a very compelling story and the writing is superb. The author brings into focus the international politics around the world and the diplomacy used to resolve very scary situations. The bodies of the government in that part of the globe have a completely different way of responding and retaliating against the responsible bodies involved in very terrifying attacks.
The plot moves fast but slow enough to help the reader understand the various points that the author brings up about the country’s affairs, and the struggle of their internal interests. I think that this book is quite challenging for the reader, but Khalid Muhammad did an awesome job because I never felt lost and I followed the story easily. The amazing view of the complex characters pull the reader into the story and anxiously you turn the pages trying to find the outcome of each scary situation.
This book reads like a documentary when it comes to details about Pakistan and it’s station in the political world in today’s date, while it is positioned in the middle of one of the most volatile regions in the world.
I clenched my teeth while reading about the tortures, the espionage, the suspense and the crime. The book is great. You get the taste of a huge mixture of emotions. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves action, thrill, suspense, terror and unpredictability. Good job Khalid Muhammad!”
