The assassination of a top commander in the Malaysian security force sets off a chain of events that throws the community of Sabah and its environs into turmoil. Zain Abidin puts together a crack team of his best operatives with one deadly mission in mind; to capture the notorious terrorist Saadam Elwan who has snuck into the country unnoticed and is planning the mother of all attacks with the ultimate aim of bringing down the government. Zain and his cohorts use their counter-terrorism training and some help from an unexpected ally to combat this developing menace but what they do not know is that the plot is bigger than they imagined and their adversaries are equally monitoring their every move. Trust the wrong person and face the consequences in Mission Sabah: The Manhunt by V.G. Kumar Das.

Mission Sabah is an action novel set in the Malaysian peninsula. It sets the pace with all out-action from the opening chapter. V.G. Kumar Das does a splendid job of describing the operations of the heroes and their antagonists in detail. The interrogation process, the surveillance, and even the wildlife in the region are not left out. I had fallen in love with Malaysia by the time I was through with the book. He did a thorough job with the backstory to the crisis in the country, making it easier for me to get into the mood for what follows in the account. The subplots are interesting enough to create completely new stories. This book is in a class of its own and the author's style of gripping storytelling is fantastic. If there was ever a case of too much of a good thing then this novel fits the bill.
