Bounty is a work of dramatic thriller fiction penned by author Darryl Greer. Spanning the globe in this political terrorist thriller, our central hero begins life as a little boy, Jabir Sarkis. At twelve years old, Jabir witnesses the horrors of the Middle East conflict of 2007, when his mother is killed in Lebanon. Vowing to fight against the terrorists who ended her life, Jabir grows in power and passion to do good deeds. But as his deeds begin to get noticed, Jabir’s new life in Australia is threatened by the very terrorists he’s trying to destroy. When they kidnap his girlfriend, Jabir begins a terrifying trial to get her back and have the life he’s worked so hard for restored to him.
There should be more thriller books like Bounty. I think it’s wonderful, culturally speaking, to see an anti-terrorism novel with a non-white, non-American hero, adding a huge deal of authenticity and personal motivation to the tale. Author Darryl Greer creates an empathetic and powerful hero in Jabir Sarkis, spurred by the past he’s had to endure but always determined for the future. The different locations of Australia and the Middle East bring life to the tale as genuinely terrifying events occur. The political aspects of the story are well handled, without overshadowing the personal drama that Jabir is going through. I also really enjoyed the dialogue, which was direct and not overly-technical. Overall, Bounty is a thriller novel that any reader can access and enjoy, portraying a true hero at work.
