    Product Description

    Product Description

    Asymmetric Attack is not a book to inspire hope that western governments are able to defend their people against the next generation of terrorist attacks, underlined so recently by how close a simple plan nearly succeeded on 25 December 2009 in Detroit, USA. This book shows how easily a few terrorists, combining repeating physical attacks with a relentless propaganda campaign, and for an investment of less than twenty thousand dollars, brings a democratic country to its knees. The police, security and intelligence agencies cannot prevent the attacks as they unfold, and the UK government is found wanting and unable to cope with the developing events. It is true terrorism of the people, with attacks apparently randomly yet repetitively occuring over time. Only after a while do the agencies realise there is more to the individual horrific attacks than meets the eye, and only then is the country's vulnerability fully exposed. This is a story of the next wave of terrorism in the UK, although it is portable, near untraceable and could arise in any country. It is cheap, vicious, clever, genuinely terrifying and able to be replicated relentlessly. Asymmetric Attack challenges conventional thinking on democracy, questions the competencies of government in counter-terrorism matters, ruthlessly examines the fabric of UK society, and exposes the current hi-tech counter-terrorist posture of UK authorities when faced with asymmetric warfare. It is a work of fiction, and we should all hope it remains only that. Asymmetric Attack is described as a 'last warning for the authorities and a heads up for the people'. Read it and set your mind at work on the question; could it happen in your country? If you think it could, start asking why.

    Riveting, compelling, believable. A great read. The author is a master storyteller, this could easily be a screenplay or TV mini series
