The Mongoose Crew is a suspenseful novel penned by the eloquent author Marcus F. Fair. It is cleverly written in a first-person narrative through the eyes of an ex-soldier, Mickey Frank. After leaving the army twelve years prior and now living a quiet married life, a dark past from his hostile deployment in Somalia catches up to him and his old unit, which eventually brings them back together but for a haunting purpose.
The Mongoose Crew is the embodiment of the phrase "the fewer, the better." A succinct book, it is packed with grit, thrills, and ingenuity. This dynamite book does contain a smidge of profanity and various graphic scenes. Nonetheless, there's no denying that Fair is a knowledgeable and nifty author. Devising a concise novel that balances mystery and action is no easy feat, and Fair seemingly defies expectations by maximizing the bare minimum. I admire the way he masterfully builds up and pieces the story together, including chapters describing each main character's personal history without diluting the narrative.
I absorbed this captivating book and its transfixing words in one sitting more than once. I could picture an action movie being produced based on this enticing novel one day! The Mongoose Crew is first-rate. Marcus F. Fair goes over the top and leaves no stone unturned. I anticipate more of his work! I definitely recommend this book for anybody looking for an engaging and striking read that doesn't accentuate any fluff. Prodigious and solid, The Mongoose Crew is a winner.
