The plot revolves around Gavinder, a young disaffected British born Moslem. He becomes involved in a plot to plant an explosive device into part of the concrete structure of London's new Olympic Stadium. He believes it will destroy the stadium and cause the cancellation of the 2012 Olympic Games before it begins. However, Gavinder is only a pawn in the grander designs of his superiors and his naivety allows them to use him. He soon becomes embroiled with a vicious and brutal munitions expert, and that is only the start of his problems.
The fast moving narrative takes him across Europe, North Africa and back to London where he becomes involved in murder, rape, and has to keep his wits about him in order to keep himself alive in a race against time, adversaries and the ticking clock of the `Countdown to London' Olympic banner. Amazingly, along the way he manages to find love and friendship, but also disillusionment.
The author has made Gavinder very plausible as the gullible young protagonist and you find yourself understanding how his ingenuousness has led him to the path he believes he is following.
