    1. A novel of international intrigue and political maneuvering, this is something I highly recommend to all.Harry Brennan, a mid-level CIA analyst and operative, becomes embroiled in a mission to wipe out the Taliban in Afghanistan From the onset, he senses something wrong, especially when he's told that headquarters has canceled the mission. To support a Mujahideen leader – and friend, Brennan goes ahead with the operation. After wiping out the Taliban camp, the Mujahideen warriors are counter-a [...]

    2. Meet Harry Brennan, CIA officer and go-to guy on Afghanistan. When his mission in Afghanistan is aborted and he finds himself back in Washington, Harry starts digging until he finds out what everyone doesn't want him to know. And it comes as no surprise to Harry that it's all about money, or oil to be exact. As the Western world's need for oil increases, something must be done to break the stranglehold of the Arab world on oil supplies. A secret deal has been struck to get a U.S.-financed trans- [...]

    3. "Tribe" by James Bruno, author of "Permanent Interests" and "Chasm," starts and concludes with a bang, and in between delves into the the cutthroat politics that inhabit Washington D.C. and various organizations that go by their initials. If it were a movie, it would most likely be found in the drama/thriller category, rather than the action section. There's action all right, but it is not straight through with a high body count as with some in the thriller genre. It's more of a political intrig [...]

    4. James Bruno’s political thrillers are smart, fast-paced and true-to-life, marked by riveting suspense and multi-faceted characters you either love or hate. In Tribe, expect to find all of these ingredients in spades. His focus – Afghanistan, corporate greed and a presidential election – are straight from today’s headlines. It’s a page-turner you won’t be able to put down. I was so engrossed reading it I almost missed a plane.Bruno’s world is of power and spies, secrets and lies. He [...]

    5. Power plays in Afghanistan and in D.C.When I first picked up the book Tribe, I assumed that the title referred to the complicated loyalties of local Afghan politics that create the hard-to-decipher undercurrents that permeate Afghan politics. After all, the cover photo features the silhouette of what looks to be a mujaheddin soldier brandishing an assault rifle. My assumption was wrong on multiple levels.If I were more adept with my weapons identification skills, I would have known right away th [...]

    6. 4 1/2 stars I love James Bruno, he can really spin an entertaining novel from cover to cover. This one was not my favorite, but a great read to say the least. If you have never read Bruno and you are a fan of some good spy fiction give him a shot. Thanks James for another great read, can't wait for the next one.

    7. A Great Story of International Intrigue that Could Have Been Better ToldHarry Brennan is a veteran CIA field agent, equally skilled in recruiting informants and in front-line combat, but he has little respect for his superiors in the agency and poor insight into the finer points of the high-stakes office politics that threatens to sideline him. Following a botched mission to Afghanistan, he comes to believe that someone in the agency tried to have him killed in the field to conceal a plot to shi [...]

    8. I usually love first person narratives, but I had a really hard time connecting with Harry, or even understanding much of what he was talking about, as I read this novel. He describes what’s happening around him in what I consider a rather choppy format, jumping from idea to idea, and I found it all to be a little too disjointed and technical for me to follow, personally. I’m not one who really keeps up with politics, though I usually do love a good political thriller, but I was unable to co [...]
