MY THOUGHTS: Operation Nemesis
Eric Bogosian gives an informative insight to Turkey, and of its historical relationship with, or tolerance of, its Armenian citizens. He then follows by telling the story of Soghomon Tehlirian an assassin who seeks to avenge the murder of his family. Tehlirian, himself is a survivor of the deportations and mass murders losing all but one member of his family. His soul purpose in life thereafter is to hunt down and kill those responsible.
The story is all the more captivating as there are some incredibly distressing and horrific scenes recounted. Some so harrowing and depressing that at times I found it hard to continue reading. Fortunately, I persevered and was engrossed as the narrative concentrated on Tehrilan's obsessive, pursuit of his targets.
Using new material and memoirs Operation Nemesis reads like a gripping espionage thriller. I had to remind myself that it was non fiction and not a novel penned by Graeme Green or John LeCarre.
Utterly compelling and staggeringly well written. Highly recommended.
