The Point of a Gun by Steven W. Kohlhagen is a political thriller showcasing vigilantism against terrorism in the face of failure of intelligent agencies and the bureaucracy. Sounds interesting, right? Not only is it an intriguing read, but by way of its storyline, it also raises pertinent questions as to how the government should react to vigilantes, whether they should be allowed a free reign for the good that they’re doing, or should they be reigned in and brought to justice. The books strikes a perfect balance between two equally enthralling plots – the vigilantes’ hunting down of terrorists and the government’s/investigators’ hunt for the vigilantes. No mean task considering the vigilante group could comprise top intelligence agency insiders.
