read Bride of a Bygone War Bride of a Bygone War review Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Preston Fleming Ï 3 free download The second book in the Beirut Trilogy BRIDE OF A BYGONE WAR is set in the spring of 1981 following the American elections when Lebanon hopes for fresh political winds that might end their seven year civil war Enter Walter Lukash a midlevel CIA officer assigned as intelligence liaison to the Phalange militia Lukash soon becomes a pawn in a Levantine game intended to draw the US into conflict with Lebanon's Syrian occupiers Unfortunately Lukash is too distracted by problems arising from having abandoned his Lebanese bride five years earlier to see the trap until it springsSYNOPSISBeirut 1981 Walter Lukash a journe. My first reaction to Bride of a Bygone War was how different it was from its companion novel Dynamite Fishermen and from Fleming s Kamas novels While the setting of Bride remains war torn Beirut during the early 1980s the mood is palpably different from that of Dynamite Fishermen and the story is told in a very different way The novels Fleming writes the surprises I expect he will deliver and the interesting they will likely be This is most assuredly no one trick ponyBut back to Bride while delivering the goods as a spy novel I thought it transcended the spy thriller genre by also portraying how the corrosiveness of spying led the story s protagonist to make choices that later turned his personal and professional life upside down While the main plot of Bride revolves around Walter Lukash s assignment as liaison officer between the CIA and the Lebanese Christian Phalange militia a pair of subplots focus on his personal relationships one with his Irish girlfriend and one with the Lebanese wife he deserted five years earlier And while the main plot raises threats from the Phalange Syrian occupation forces and CIA Headuarters the subplots test Lukash s characterSince synopses of Bride are available elsewhere I ll end this review with what I found most significant about Bride and why I recommend it Above all this is a marvelously rich story of a man who struggles with issues of professional and personal integrity while undergoing a coming of age transition from reckless bachelor to responsible adult Second since Lukash is a spy and the setting is Beirut the book offers heapsof suspense and violent action none of which is clich d or formulaic Third Fleming s natural and concrete writing style is highly effective at bringing to life the sights sounds smells and tastes of Beirut at a time of brutish civil conflict but without resorting to sensationalism And Fleming obviously writes from first hand knowledge his references to Middle East politics history and culture are authoritative and insightful but show a light touch and are never overdoneIn sum Bride of a Bygone War is a gem of a spy novel intelligent literate sensual and rich with the kind of romance and foreign intrigue that kept a spy fan like me turning the pages until the surprising and highly satisfying end THE WALLPAPER CHASE reaction to Bride of a Bygone War was how different it was from its companion novel Dynamite Fishermen and from Fleming s Kamas novels While the setting of Bride SpongeBob Mix Match remains war torn Beirut during the early 1980s the mood is palpably different from that of Dynamite Fishermen and the story is told in a very different way The novels Fleming writes the surprises I expect he will deliver and the interesting they will likely be This is most assuredly no one trick ponyBut back to Bride while delivering the goods as a spy novel I thought it transcended the spy thriller genre by also portraying how the corrosiveness of spying led the story s protagonist to make choices that later turned his personal and professional life upside down While the main plot of Bride Rules of the Knife Fight revolves around Walter Lukash s assignment as liaison officer between the CIA and the Lebanese Christian Phalange militia a pair of subplots focus on his personal Know What I Saw?
