My thanks to Peter Baker and his team at songnet.co.uk for permission to use ‘Anthem of Peace’ as the theme track for my ‘Sword of Allah’ video trailer. The techno-thriller launches on September 19th.
When music becomes reality
The music is a superb track and very relevant to my thriller, which is based on the initial premise of a North Korean nuclear fusion weapon test – they did actually claim a successful nuclear fusion bomb test in February 2016. There is doubt that it was really a fusion weapon, but no doubt that it was nuclear. The rest of the plot revolves around WMD in the hands of Islamist terrorists.
Upgraded missile technology
Whether my novel is a flight of fancy or not, we have to deal with reality. Just this week North Korea is once again raising the stakes with reports that its Redong / Nodong missile is capable of carrying a detachable warhead. This greatly increases the difficulty of interception. With their parallel advance in underwater launched solid fuel missile technology this is a worrying development. Some commentators are saying that Kim Jong-un is ‘unhinged’.
Anyway, check out the music.
