"A chilling blockbuster of a novel"
on 3 September 2015
This is a thriller that just had to be written. All of the elements are known to us; a Middle Eastern theatre boiling over with hatred for the West in general, and the US in particular. Al Qaeda primed ready to attack using whatever weaponry is available. The US embroiled in political in-fighting in DC and their allies across the seas battling an economic downturn. Africa had its own problem with the Ebola virus which was well covered in the media. No-one who reads this book will wonder what these elements mean; we've lived with them for several years. Murray McDonald has imagined a scenario that is horrifying, yet totally plausible. To reveal much more will spoil future readers enjoyment. Safe to say, they will be absorbed and gathered up in the urgent pace of the action as it unfolds around the globe. A cleverly crafted story-line which keeps you guessing until the final pages.
