“Although "OKHOTRIKI" is mooted as being predominately...”

Written on: 05/07/2010 by katiegee42 (1 review written)

Although "OKHOTRIKI" is mooted as being predominately a "man`s book", I found it difficult to put down once I had got into the story. Because of the credentials of the author, there is little doubt of the book`s authenticity. Which makes it all the more believable, as Martin Charles does little to disguise his "work of faction" for what it is, an insight into the world of espionage to which he himself is quite obviously no stranger.
Sometimes very gory and explicit, Martin Charles does indeed… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/11/2009

The author is an old friend of mine who, once upon a time, worked in Afghanistan setting up training camps (to get the Russians out - successfully!). I have seen a photo of him playing tribal 'polo' (more like rugby on horseback) with a dead calf as the ball and part of it (the photo) appears on the cover. Martin lived with the locals and tells the tale that on one occasion how he was asked to act as Muezzin and call the faithful to prayer.

Okhotriki is a tale (several tales interwoven in… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/10/2009

I'll cut to the chase - I'm the authors son, I'm not going to review the book as per say, as I stand by it as a work of true insight.

Some of you below have said you feel the author had been through it, and that some of the characters might be known to him.

All I can say to that is...you don't know the half of it...new book in progress and there are plenty more ripping yarns, based on the strange career of my father. I had to grow up in the middle of it all!!

Any of you get an AK47 for… Read Full Review

An excellent insight to the world of intelligence & subterfuge.
Well written, both decriptive and accurate regarding the subjective nature of the book.
I finished the book in two sessions and enjoyed it immensely… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...the person who wrote it seems himself to know something of this murky world.

Written on: 05/10/2009

Not for the faint-hearted! This no-holds-barred novel follows the exploits of a large number of different armed groups over three continents, and through more experiences than most of us would like to imagine. Where the novel covers information in the public domain, it is scrupulous in the accuracy of its details. It is frightening to assume that other information must also be sound. Interesting nuances in the novel blur the line between the goodies and the baddies; giving the reader something… Read Full Review

“Have just finished reading The Hunters and the Hunted,...”

Written on: 14/09/2009

Have just finished reading The Hunters and the Hunted, it really is a rip roaring yarn with plenty of twists and turns and written in a similar style to that of Alistair McLean the characters are very believable and one suspects they are based in part on a few real life acquaintances of the author.

As with all the best books meticulous attention to detail has served to enhance the reading enjoyment, all the places mentioned no doubt exist and the situations in which the characters find… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2009 by Steger (1 review written)

Okhotriki The Hunters and the Hunted is a rip roaring adventure right off the blocks. Martin Charles weaves a tale of intrigue with intimate and vivid details grounded in a covert operation with international ramifications. From the first freed hostage one must hang on tight for the ride. Follow a trio of unusual but elite British military men, Russian trained mercinaries, CIA operatives and a little IRA peppered in for good measure as Charles' vivid experiences unfold on the page. The finish… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2009

The Hunters and the Hunted is a tough no nonsense and compelling 'faction'(as opposed to pure fiction) story, very well written by someone who has been there and done that and probably got the tee shirt to prove it.

Great read for adventure and thriller lovers, the characters are very believable and probably really do exist and you just know that the research has been meticulous right down to the finest detail. … Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2009

OKHOTRIKI is a thriller from the beginning, and will appeal to anyone with an interest in the conflict / spy thriller or to anyone who likes a good adventure story. It is a fast paced, descriptive novel covering specific protagonists and events in several countries during the later stages of the Cold War.

After a succinct and interesting forward, the reader is immediately thrown into the action. Starting in the Middle East with a hostage, it evolves through Russian former Spetnaz soldiers who… Read Full Review
