In February 2016 North Korea announced the successful testing of a
fusion bomb. This sets the backdrop to frantic diplomatic activity and a multi-threaded tale of
intrigue with the involvement of Iran as well as North Korea. Outrageous demands by a visionary
terrorist group become public and throw the United Nations into panic.
Ex-Royal Marine Steve Baldwin (Gate of Tears, Sicilian Channel) has been involved in tracking a
rogue Chinese agent to Malta, but the capture does not go according to plan. Changed priorities
resulting from the British Government’s dark objectives move the action to North Africa where
political instability is the norm and duplicity the name of the game.
Thousands of lives are at stake, but the UK Prime Minister is bent on secretly acquiring the
technology for her country. It’s an outrageous gamble with the lives of her agents (always
dispensable) – and with the diplomatic reputation of the UK for a generation to come.
This riveting tale will be of interest to readers who enjoy topical tales of espionage and
geopolitics based on leading edge technology with plenty of suspense and action!
