The Afghan

I just finished reading this novel, The Afghan by Frederick Forsyth. Whatever be the merits of the plot - it is a thriller alright, however implausible, but the wide range of information provided in the book, like his other plots, is pretty neat. 


What caught my eye was the fact that two of his characters in the plot, pretty minor ones, who assist in the blowing up of a ship, are from "Kerala". Prescience?

Yes, indeed. I had a post about it when I read the novel
