Hunters in the Dark by Lawrence Osborne

The Hunters in the Dark starts out by creating a languid , the desultory mood that perfectly fits the story. Osborne drew me in so well that even with a break of several days I was immediately able to return to Cambodia. And I did indeed feel as if I were there even though it's a country totally unfamiliar to me I could feel the heat and humidity

Robert seemed a little too naive for his age but as the story progressed, all the various characters were very real. There was enough narrative inspection to achieve this without becoming tedious.

The story is very open or not informative. Nothing was predictable. There is a definite tension that kept me turning the page. The and isn't particularly concise, tests but it is satisfactory the primary attention is resolved and there is a sense of character growth.

I would have liked a little more of Sophal's thoughts and feelings at the end, but she wasn't the main character and it may be a good thing that Osborne did not attempt to understand a woman's reactions to the circumstances.

Definitely a book I would reread.
