Book Description

10 Nov 2012
A modern day thriller pitching the ultimate terror against the United States of America. CIA agent, Remo Francesini has deep concerns when he talks to a man dying of radiation sickness in the naval hospital at Guantanamo. He is under pressure from his boss, Admiral Starling, and knows the American public rely on people like him to keep them safe. But those concerns and worried deepen when he learns about Harry Marsham, an underwater oceanographer who survives when his yacht is rammed by a freighter in the dead of night, on a becalmed sea. Unwittingly, the two men are drawn into a battle to expose the world famous explorer, Hakeem Khan and his plan to attack the soft underbelly of America. The result would devastate the Gulf of Mexico and the eastern seaboard of the United States. The two men are sucked into a world of kidnap, Caribbean voodoo, nuclear weapons and the very real threat of apocalyptic proportions.

More About the Author

Michael Parker was born in 1941 and educated in London and Portsmouth. He left school with no qualifications but a natural 'bent' for English, and it was this ability that set him on the path to writing. Michael has written for as long as he can remember, but not with the success he first coveted. His first novel, NORTH SLOPE was published by Macmillan in 1980. His following manuscript, HELL'S GATE was rejected and so began a saga that lasted twenty six years, but more of that later.

Michael's second novel, THE SHADOW OF THE WOLF, was published in 1984 by Robert Hale of London. It was to be many, many years of writing and rejections before he saw his third novel published in 2007. This was HELL'S GATE, the novel he had been trying to get accepted since 1980. Other books followed: THE EAGLE'S COVENANT in 2007 (Robert Hale). THE DEVIL'S TRINITY in 2008 (Robert Hale). In May 2009 THE THIRD SECRET. A COVERT WAR followed that in 2010, and in December, 2011, THE BOY FROM BERLIN was published, once again published by Robert Hale. This novel is to be published in paperback by Harlequin in North America and Canada. Harlequin have also taken up the English language paperback rights for THE EAGLE'S COVENANT, also for North America and Canada. Michael's publisher, Robert Hale Ltd., will be releasing the novel as an e-book in November 2012.

When Michael began releasing his books on Amazon as Kindle eBooks and paperbacks, it was through Acclaimed Books Ltd. He published THE THIRD SECRET as ROSELLI'S GOLD. The change of title was in response to a major best seller by a top author of the same title. Michael felt that the title had become over-used and decided the change reflected more on the genre and content of the book. HELL'S GATE has now been released on Amazon and it is hoped that THE DEVIL'S TRINITY will be available by the end of the year (2012)

Michael met his wife Pat when he was sixteen and she was fifteen. They married in 1960, have four sons, ten grandchildren and a new great grandson, Harrison. They celebrated their Golden wedding anniversary in January 2010. Michael has worked as an office boy, a Merchant seaman, a plaster's labourer, a deck hand, a cinema projectionist, an RAF Technician and a maintenance technician in the food industry. He has also worked in the Middle East. In 1997 Michael and Pat moved to Spain and settled on the Costa Blanca. Michael's hobbies are Football, snooker, and keyboard. He is member of Torrevieja Christian Fellowship (TCF) along with his wife, and used to play keyboard there as a member of the Praise and Worship team.

Michael has described his writing hobby as a 'Sweet curse'. He says that the joy comes from writing a full length novel, living with it, creating the adventure, the characters, the excitement etc., but the curse comes from the number of rejections that are received from almost all the publishers and agents he contacts. But perseverance is the key word, which was the case with HELL'S GATE; twenty six years in trying.

4.0 out of 5 stars A trinity of death and destruction 24 July 2008
Format:Hardcover
With his fifth book, Michael Parker is definitely flexing his writerly muscles. His story is mainly set in the Caribbean and CIA headquarters and posits a nightmare scenario of which even the popular Clive Cussler would be proud.

Yet it starts innocently enough with an accident at sea. Marsh and Greg, his business partner, are onboard their yacht the Ocean Quest when a ship runs them down. Greg dies, leaving a widow Helen back at their office. These early chapters are tense and create a mystery you want to resolve by reading on.

Then we meet CIA operator Remo who is investigating the arrival on a beach of an anonymous individual suffering from radiation sickness. Alarm bells start to ring, especially when it is revealed that three nuclear bombs - a trinity of death and destruction - have gone missing from Uzbekistan.

Respectable business magnate Hakeem Khan is behind this latest attempt at bringing the `Great Satan', America, to its knees. Onboard a vessel sailing the Caribbean, he finds that his plans have been forestalled by the disappearance or death of the pilot of their submersible, the Challenger, which was key to the mission's success.

Thus the stage is set for these disparate lives to become intertwined in a race against time. The story involves kidnap, violence and bravery. Marsh is coerced into working for Khan, knowing that Helen's life is forfeit if he refuses. But he fears that he is expendable too.

Considerable knowledge about underwater exploration and airborne firepower are fairly seamlessly woven into the tale of cat-and-mouse between the cunning Khan and the might of the US.

The fast-paced storyline has the potential to make a good movie. Without a doubt, all fans of techno-thrillers should get their money's worth with this one.

Thin story line and simple plot,combined with characters lacking in subs. Feels more like an outline than considered publication. Would not recommended parting with cash for the pleasure
