The Battle of Beirut is worse than Hell, an irrational maelstrom of implacable hatreds and inconceivable suffering, of screaming bombs and exploding shells, crashing buildings, sniper battles, and deadly ambushes. Neill, a war correspondent on a secret mission for Britain’s MI6 intelligence agency, is trying to find Mohammed, a Hezbollah terrorist leader who may be willing to stop the slaughter and destruction. [giveaway giveaway_id=1649 side=”right”]

André, a French commando, is also looking for Mohammed, to kill him in revenge for the death of his brother, blown up with over 400 US Marines and French paratroopers by Hezbollah. For Rosa, a remorseless and passionate Palestinian guerrilla, Mohammed is one of the few hopes left for her people, and she will give her life to protect him. And for lovely Anne-Marie, André is the only one who can rescue her from Hell.

Based on Bond’s own experiences in Lebanon, Syria and the Middle East, Holy War has been praised for its portrayal of battle and its journalistic and political realism, and for its evocative descriptions of men and women caught in a deadly crossfire.


MIKE BOND has been called the “master of the existential thriller” by the BBC and “one of the 21st century’s most exciting authors” by the Washington Times. He is a bestselling novelist, environmental activist, war and human rights correspondent and award-winning poet who has worked in many remote, dangerous parts of the world. His critically acclaimed novels depict the innate hunger of the human heart for what is good, the intense joys of love, the terror and fury of battle, the sinister conspiracies of international politics and multinational corporations, and the beauty of the vanishing natural world.

  1. I have truly enjoyed Mike Bond’s interview and discussion today and I thank him for thinking that I had a dynamite question for him regarding rewriting or thinking of changing an already published book. Thank you for having Mr. Bond on today. This was very enjoyable and interesting and I was so impressed with the author’s background and some things that I never knew about before this. I would like to add one more comment, however, and that is how I was really surprised by the choice of Heavy Metal music as the writing/listening music accompanying your writing!!!. Interesting, really interesting. Keep up the wonderful writing, Mr. Bond. We will be reading everything you write. Thank you.. It is would a thrill to be one of the recipients of an autographed book as well. We will hope to be lucky for once.
