Turkey Shoot: He Might Not Be the Terrorist You Expected by Geoffrey Dutton is a conspiracy thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and holding your breath. Mahmoud al Ramadi was a simple 23-year-old who was caught in a bad place. An Iraqi who was in the clutches of ISIS, Mahmoud had no idea that he would become a terrorist. Fighting off ISIS was easier than his new mission was. He was told to go to Greece and work together to bring the elite down to invoke a revolution. Mahmoud originally became a freedom fighter to get revenge for the deaths of his parents, but things changed when he reached Greece. Before he knew it, he was stuck in an ideological situation where his mind told him one thing and his mission told him another. This would be Mahmoud’s biggest test; would he succeed?
This novel is a remarkable thriller with a well-rounded antihero who had my attention from the get-go. Mahmoud al Ramadi was conflicted but not enough to change his ways. Author Geoffrey Dutton created a very realistic and thought-provoking look into the current condition in the Middle East. Instead of just focusing on terrorism, the author also focused on social issues, the emotional toll of killing, love, family, emotions, and so much more. The author did justice to all of these and more themes to create a compelling tale. The character development was realistic enough to make me feel pain for Mahmoud and to enjoy his triumphs. The descriptions of Greece, Mahmoud’s emotions, and imagery were all very realistic. Turkey Shoot is a novel that I would highly recommend.
