Sword of Allah

This topical techno thriller is the second book in ‘The Maghreb Trilogy’. The story blends political intrigue with suspense and gutsy action in sharply researched Mediterranean settings. Weapons of mass destruction are in terrorist hands. With much of the story based on fact, this is a chilling portrayal of a possible future.

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 pacy techno thriller should be of interest to readers who enjoy topical tales of espionage and geopolitics based on leading edge technology with plenty of suspense and action.


Anyone who loves an intriguingly, solid plot well orchestrated thriller, this should be a novel on your reading list. Grasping my attention within the first few pages I felt swallowed into suspense…
Aaron, Goodreads

If you enjoy a tightly-plotted. well-written thriller, this is the book for you! The story grabbed me at page one and didn’t let up until the last page. The international geopolitical situation today makes this all seem real and that is so, so chilling. The line between fact and fiction is very vague. Now when I listen to the daily news, I will be expecting the most ominous of those events to appear in the next of this series. An excellent read!
