This is an excellent thriller. The plot moves along briskly, but with purpose. The violence is necessarily graphic. The prospect of an all-powerful Germany dominating a united Europe may be on the horizon; the old adversaries from Germany and Israel add a different feel to the ultra-modern overview. Somehow one of the terrorist characters morphs into someone likeable. There was so much going on it was difficult to put down. There were elements of the book that harked back to writers of an earlier era, during the Cold War and yet the action was unequivocally of the moment. I enjoyed it immensely.

This for a freebie was fantastic discovery. Move over Fredrick Forsyth and the Odessa File. Move over Jack Higgins and The Eagle has Landed.
There is a new kid on the block.
This is fast paced thriller with some very strong and believable characters. The very complexity of the plot makes you even want to have some sympathy with the bad guys but also want the Police to catch them at the same time.
No spoilers but the plot twists and turns like a Devon lane.

Once I'd linked the names together I enjoyed the book. So many different names seemed to appear close together that initially I struggled to remember them and who they were but they fell into place.

The storyline was very good and made it an enjoyable read.

Format: Hardcover
Germany's billionaire industrialist Manfred Schiller's week-old grandson is kidnapped by a ruthless and murderous group. Terrorist Breggie de Kok, a South African psychotic killer, is partnered by Schneider, a gunman. They've recruited a motley crew, including Conor Lenihan, an ex-SAS soldier. The kidnap atrocity is strong dramatic stuff, well realised. Only Schiller and Joanna, his daughter-in-law, are left alive, to await the ransom demand.

Oberkommissar Erich Hoffman investigates. A hard man, he is convinced that the perpetrators are after more than just a ransom.

Expected to be the new Chancellor, Molke controls a network of insiders, thugs and militants to deal with any opposition to his plans for a New Order; he's aiming to control the Schiller industrial empire and is intent on stopping the signing of a secret covenant between the Israeli nation and Schiller. Naively, Schiller believes it is the only way to restore greatness to his people before he dies. In fact, the move is likely to threaten world peace, but he can't see this - he's a numbers man, not a strategist.

Lenihan is double-crossed and barely escapes. He sets out to hunt down his would-be killers. Death, betrayal, cat-and-mouse surveillance, the involvement of Joanna and the ghost of her husband are all entwined in a fast-moving story.

Parker has done his research and created believable characters, whether that's ruthless anti-hero Lenihan with a soft spot for Joanna, Breggie who saves the baby from serious infection, Joanna who is an accomplished computer hacker capable of fighting a cyberspace conflict, or the persistent Hoffman himself.

An accomplished and exciting thriller.

An interesting plot line...with many twists and turns. Wasn't too keen on the abrupt shifts in location, but can see that they were probably necessary so that the different strands of the plot could move forward.
