Coltan is classic adventure story-telling from a best-selling author
The board members of US company Dall & Houston receive a death threat from an alleged Islamic terrorist called Aarohum Al Rashid: unless they return the one billion dollars that they reaped from their direct involvement in the Iraq war, they will be killed off one by one. The plot addresses current global issues like the war for the control of coltan supplies, a mineral so valuable that it has become essential to new technology in the developed world. A great novel, charged with action, intrigue and first-class story telling.

It is a good story, not a nice one. It is well worth reading, but it is not for our edification nor to enhance our ethical values. It should serve to make us more aware of the (under)world around us, how it works, the persons it generates, the cruelty and craftiness with which it operates. It is sobering and outrageous. ~ Frank Regan, Renew
I have been an admirer of Alberto Vazquez-Figueroa's books since I was a teenager. He has been always my literary idol, and the inspiration to become a journalist, a war correspondant and finally a successful novelist. ~ Arturo Perez Reverte, International bestselling author
Vazquez-Figueroa is one of the best Spanish writers of our time, and certainly the most commercially successful! ~ Jose Manuel Lara, President and founder of the Grupo Planeta, the largest publishing group of Spain and Latin America
