Product Description

Product Description

In 1994 the British government were working on a peace plan with the IRA.
In the background a plan to hit the IRA hard and take out many of their operatives was being put in place should the peace plan not come to fruition.
The British government, in the hope that peace was possible, shelved the plan.
But there were those who felt it was important that the IRA be taught a lesson that would bring them to the negotiating table.
Things started to go wrong when a lower echelon IRA operative was assassinated in New York. The method was a classic SAS operation.
Before long the bullets and the bombs were exploding.
It took ex-SAS man Same Richardson and a quiet Irish American CIA analyst,Francis Duggan, working together, to finally find out who was at the root of the horrors.
The action ranges from New York, London, Holland, Belfast and the Florida Everglades.

More About the Author

Eddy Shah has always been at the forefront of innovation in his business and creative life: whether revolutionising the newspaper industry by introducing new technology and journalistic methods at the ground-breaking Today newspapers, changing the way TV programmes were produced with peak-time shows, and now tackling the building of building affordable and eco-friendly homes.

Writing has been a major part of Eddy Shah's life since he was sixteen and in the 1990s he wrote four successful novels: 'Manchester Blue', 'Fallen Angels', 'The Lucy Ghosts' and 'Ring of Red Roses'. Shah spent two years researching and writing 'Second World'; he'd first had the idea for the novel thirteen years ago but it was considered a book ahead of its time so Shah put it aside as he waited for the technology and information age to catch up with his ideas. Launched in 2009, 'Second World' is a high-tech, futuristic action-thriller which takes us straight into the parallel world of today's virtual reality Internet where millions work and play every day.


Born in 1944 in Cambridge, Eddy Shah was educated at Gordonstoun in Scotland, followed by Haywards Heath Grammar School and despite being thrown out of several schools along the way managed to get nine O levels. He didn't go to University but his lifelong passion for books and reading started when he was very young and he's been writing all his life.

He started his career in theatre and television as a stage manager and progressed to the BBC and Granada as a floor manager working on classic shows such as "Till Death Us Do Part", "Coronation Street" and "Softly,Softly". He then entered the newspaper business with the Manchester Evening News and after being made redundant sold his house to start his own paper and eventually built up a portfolio of 60 newspaper titles.

During this period he introduced new technology through desktop publishing to the newspaper and magazine industries when he launched Today in 1986 and in the process became one of the most talked-about newspaper men of the 1980s. He then launched a national newspaper and forced Fleet Street to follow by de-unionising and introducing new technology.

Shah sold his newspaper empire in 1988 and in 1989 set up Messenger TV an independent company which produced several successful prime-time series including "Capstick's Law" . He was the first to buy a house (Russell Harty's home in Giggleswick) and turn it into a studio. He'd moved to the US to write novels and build a property company. On his return to the UK he and his wife Jennifer moved into the property and leisure business building up a chain of golf clubs and hotels. His latest business venture is building quality, eco-friendly homes at affordable prices through his new firm Green Ladder Homes.

Eddy Shah has now sold his hospitality business and is returning to writing. His main love are 'Noire' books set in the Eighties and Nineties, centring on crime or espionage.

'The new books will have main characters who will thread a series of stories together. I have never kept a character going through my books, but it is time I did so,' he said. 'I was always too eager to kill my heroes off.'

Eddy and his wife Jennifer, a model and actress who was in the original Bond movie Casino Royale, have three grown-up children and are celebrating over forty years of marriage this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb read 7 Aug 2002
Format:Paperback
This book is a fantastic read and I have no hesitation in recommending it to any Chris Ryan & Andy McNab fan. It has an excellent MI5/SAS involvement with loads of action and some really interesting twists all combined to have you reading till your eyes bleed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Action, A great Read 22 Mar 2002
Format:Paperback
The Book is gripping from start to finish and the storyline is gripping. The book is full of tension and makes you want to keep reading. I was reading into the early hours of the morning and finished this book in 2 days because I was unable to put it down.
IF you enjoy spy books with plenty of action then this is definately for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eddy Shah - a star! 6 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a shame Eddy Shah has not expanded his collection of writings. He's a great story teller and his books easy to read. I love his books. "Second World" is very different from Fallen Angels and other previous books but also a great read.
