I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Of course none of it is true, and that is a small fact that may comfort them these things could not possibly happen, not in the highly regulated industry in which we work, with ethics departments, accountability traceability and all those other buzz words with which they ( the industry ) pepper their platitudes, but a large part of the novel concerns the kidnapping of a group of oil workers in West Africa and postulates the, of course, entirely fictional machinery behind that kidnapping and looks into the areas of who really benefited and who really orchestrated it. But it is, as I must repeat, fiction. Though I was actually kidnapped, and this is matter of public record, and the AK 47s had real bullets in them and they militants were well funded which i s also well established nothing else should be inferred from the novel.
Astute readers or those who know me we'll may recal that my masters degree was writen about Hamlet, and it s from that work that I took the title of this post;
the play's the thing
Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King
