“The British government is being blackmailed by criminals who got their hands on a quantity of plutonium left over from the Cold War. There is only one man who knows their identity and can prevent a disaster, but he is on the run for a murder he didn’t commit and has no intention of being found.
As the authorities attempt to track him down, the clock is ticking, and they are running out of time. They pin their hopes on the fact that a bunch of amateurs won’t have nuclear technology and the worst they will manage is a dirty bomb. After all, everyone knows they aren’t really that dangerous.
People run away from the explosion, and the radiation drifts harmlessly into the atmosphere. But suppose you could change that? What if the terrorists had found a way to keep the radiation near to the ground, encourage people to hang around breathing in death, and when you invite them to their own slaughter, they come willingly? They would be dangerous then…wouldn’t they?”
This came to me through a Facebook giveaway and I’m so glad I decided to give it a go.
This was an action adventure from the very first word to the last, a rollercoaster ride with the occasional glint of humour which only made the good,better.
At 10 hours 38 mins it seems a long book but the pace of the story it skips along quite the thing.
the lead character nick Sullivan is a cocky yet honest man who knows what he wants and goes and gets it
The villains remind me of baddies from an old fashioned action adventure film,everything was there apart from twirling moustaches and laughing.
I found the story believable and quite scary because in today’s day and age this could very well happen, sometimes fiction is more shocking than real life.
The narrator for this ride is Craig Bowles, only slight criticism I have is, at first I found his voice a-bit monotone but as the story went on I got used to it and enjoyed it.
As an opening story in a new series it was brilliant, I eagerly await book two, if you want a good fast paced adventure then give this a go.
