A tale of international political intrigue

What the readers say

Daniel Greaves, social psychologist, UK: If you are interested in Middle-Eastern current affairs, journalism, Turkish culture, history and conspiracy, but partial to suspense, humour and a sprinkling of romance then this novel hits the target like a laser guided bomb. Sabral’s complex, intelligent, informative and intriguing novel is clearly formulated from a unique perspective directly carved from personal experience. As a reader your imagination is led in such a way at times that you are helplessly thrusted into Istanbul and the next minute staring at the moonlit sky shining on the Bosphorus. On reading the book you really get to know the main character ‘Kate’ her hectic work, personal life, mission and quirky personal routines. I loved the story, fact or fiction, ‘Changing Borders’ draws you in and leaves you wanting more. I tend to not pay much attention to reviews or let them sway my thinking when deciding to buy a book. However, all I can say is that for all the bad books we end up reading, its nice to find a gem now and again that re-affirms your love for good novels that pick you up, engage you and take you far away.

Tricia McCormack Gonsowski, US: Changing Borders is about a British/American political news reporter, Kate Roberts. Kate works for an Iranian news channel reporting news from Turkey. She receives a mysterious email regarding the future of the Middle East. Plots thicken and twists and turns take place… this quick and easy read is not only riveting, sexy and fun but also gives an education of Middle Eastern politics. I couldn’t put it down! I am looking forward to the next novel by this great new author!

Betrand Ekambi, engineer, France: The author should be publicly congratulated because her first book is a readable one! Thank you jody, I spent some few euros to buy it and I will spend some more to offer it to some friends and relatives.

Eric, industrial design, Spain: You write with grace, there is speed in the development of the story, there are some interesting characters, and the very updated political situation and matter of facts that people recognize makes it a good story.

Lawal Hussein,  Gusau, Nigeria: A Great Book. Your book, Changing Borders, made quite interesting reading. Though a work of fiction, its theme is no doubt what’s widely believed to be true. That is, the US has made a plan and mapped out a strategy for creating a new middle east in which Iran would be weaker and other states fragmented along tribal and ethnic lines. I must congratulate you for a great work.

  1. Ozgur Gurbuz, journalist, Turkey: Many journalists stay in foreign countries but most of the stuff we read from them is based on the interpretation of their local friends. “Changing Borders” was different and demonstrates good journalistic sense, although it is a fiction.

    ROY DAVID, author and investigative journalist: Jody Sabral’s in-depth knowledge of the politics of the Middle East shines throughout this fast-paced debut novel. A timely and portentous piece of fiction that is, worryingly, based on frightening fact.
