Product Description

Product Description

It’s 1987. Location; Arabian Gulf. A war is raging between Iran and Iraq, two of the largest oil producers in the Middle East. British entrepreneur Declan Doyle is confronted by the much feared head of the IRG, Iranian Revolutionary Guard. The Iranian blood-letting battle with the Iraqis has been going on for too many years. It is at a stalemate and choking the cash struck Iranians to the point of humiliating surrender. Doyle agrees to embark on a last ditch operation coded 112/406 and named ‘The Geneveh Project’. The plan is to get oil out of Iran in a way that has never been attempted before. Will he succeed?..... Can he succeed? Not if the American CIA have their way. Doyle is committed to the Geneveh Project but the covert activities of Colonel Oliver Gresham leave a trail of pain and suffering that provide him with fewer and fewer choices. He has to complete the work on time or else the leader of the fanatical IRG will want to know why …. with life threatening consequences. The simple question is, can the tough minded British businessman complete the Geneveh Project in time? The head of the Iranian Rev Guard has put his life on it. The CIA have put a billion dollar submarine on it.

About the Author

Brief Biography: Quentin was born in UK and spent his youth surrounded by the pleasant countryside of Middle England in Oxfordshire. At the age of 15 he went off to join the British Royal Air Force ... and never looked back. These were exciting times to be part of a Hi-Tech military unit with the cold war in full swing and the possibility of a nuclear strike against the west imminent. After leaving the Air Force and with a restless outlook, he took on several jobs that took him travelling across Eastern and Western Europe and then into Africa. Nurturing an unfortunate ability of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Quentin finally found himself caught up in the horrific Biafra conflict in Nigeria and with a certain amount of scarred memory tissue to prove the point, he decided to travel East in search of less wearing adventures. In the early 70's, Quentin headed for Dubai: for the smell of the spice souk, the sail of the Dhow outlined on a distant horizon and the promise of a fortune at the end of a Middle Eastern rainbow. For the next 25 years, he was fortunate enough to witness and become part of the extrodinary growth of a place that literally rose out of a desert wasteland like a golden Pheonix ... accompanied by the continuing horror of yet even more war. After returning to the UK in the late 90's, still restless, Quentin decided to spend some 'writing time' in Spain, a decision that has served him well with the completion and publishing of eight books to the middle of 2013 and another full length novel on the drawing board.   Books by Quentin Cope: Fiction: Nostradamus: The Last Christmas The Geneveh Project.

Such a precarious situation. Middle East volatility and American aggression, protecting their own interests.
Many of the events are based on fact and Cope has created a fast-moving, tense political thriller that exposes megalomania, corruption and greed on a damning scale with devastating results. No winners, just losers.
The stakes are high. This is about oil in the Gulf. Set towards the end of the war between Iraq and Iran in the 80s the Iraqis were preventing the Iranians from exporting oil and so the latter were being "strangled economically." They needed nothing short of a miracle to survive the war and this is where self-made British tycoon Declan Doyle comes into the picture, a rich successful entrepreneur motivated by greed to make 20 million $ out of a "hair-brained scheme" with "too many unknowns, too much risk" and of course, it is far too expensive. Depicted more as an anti-hero it is a challenge, a deadly game that he wants to win at any price to feed his ego, increase the power stakes and satisfy his greed to fund his already lavish lifestyle of private boats and planes, first class travel and all those trappings of wealth that most of us dream about but never achieve.

Paddy Doherty, ex Secret Intelligence Service like Doyle and retired Colonel acts as go-between/negotiator on behalf of the Head of the mercenary Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Mohsen Raza, the second most powerful man in Iran after the Ayatollah Khomeini, extremely dangerous and feared by all. Menacing and ruthless.

Doyle comes up with an innovative idea to export the oil in spite of the risks too great to consider and seems prepared to risk "committing commercial suicide." And so this risky game is on! Many lives are at stake. Many lives will be lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bitofan adventure 1 Nov 2012
By JN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read another of Cope's novels, The Unicorn Conspiracy, I was eager to see if this story was of similar style. This is a completely different subject matter although still based in the Gulf. In the first chapter the scenery moves quickly from the UK to Abu Nar and from then on the action does not stop. Cope has definitely had some considerable experience of the Gulf as his characters fit perfectly in to place. The ending is a bit of a surprise and I feel that there may have to be a follow up of some sort. I really enjoyed reading this one and can only simply recommend it to others who like a rattling good yarn.

Menacing and ruthless.

Doyle comes up with an innovative idea to export the oil in spite of the risks too great to consider and seems prepared to risk "committing commercial suicide." And so this risky game is on! Many lives are at stake. many lives will be lost.

Soon we discover that there are "dark forces" working surreptitiously in the shadows ready to sabotage Project 112/406, the Iraqis and the Americans with the Russians and British Secret Service watching from the sidelines and even the Israelis supplying top secret information to the Americans. No love lost. World Politics is a dangerous game.
"Whatever the Israelis know, the Americans know. Whatever the Americans know, the Iraqis know." Failure to accomplish this daunting task would result in the execution of Doyle. This is the MURKY world of espionage and no-one is ever safe.

Suicide bombers indoctrinated with the prospect of being a Jihad and achieving Mujahid status, letter bombs, missiles and assassins, CIA or SIS, double-crossings. Trust no-one. In spite of the penalties and Doyle was well aware of them, he still went ahead and embarked on his "last ditch project" to get oil out of Iran at the mercy of Raza, the second most powerful man in Iran but the MOST dangerous.

Politically it was a volatile situation and still is. The story is exciting and Doyle walks the tightrope more as a political pawn rather than an accomplished acrobat. He is out to succeed but he is unknowingly, competing against the superpowers who want to destroy the Geneveh Project and cripple the Iranians. They were too powerful and more determined to succeed.

For a man who was "hungry for a dollar" how was he going to survive in a "dog eat dog" world? Was he going to survive? Intriguing enough for you to discover for yourselves! Enjoy.

Carol Naylor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful surprise! 30 Mar 2013
By polar Star - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having spent some time in the Mid East during the timing of this novel I bought it just out of interest. What a WONDEFUL SURPRISE!!! I could not put this book down. The detail was so accurate and the story line was fast moving and exciting. I have no doubt that Quentin Cope will soon be in the library of action book readers. Quentin's work reminds me of Jack Higgins or even early Ken Follett.
