Overview

A proficiently intellectually reasoned action thriller that merges a contemporary global terrorist incidence with a fascinating collection of complex episodes. The assault and execution of an atomic explosion at a South Pacific military base, the assassination of a leading UK politician, and the sabotage and hijacking of a new space shuttle reveals someone has acquired a mass of plutonium and is executing a sinister plot against civilization, which mankind has avoided.
The victims targeted are predominantly markedly primary bureaucrats, and it manages to illustrate how the chilling terrorism affects them and the world as the affair untangles.
It starts with a sinister explosive atmosphere with a woman partially naked sunbathing in blazing hot sunshine by herself on a golden desert island beach, on a South Pacific island believed to be desolate with no humans for hundreds of miles.
All around her she is confronted with dangers and her worse fears when men in speedboats suddenly race ashore nearby and launch into battle, with the most powerful military weapons, on a full scale assault on something hidden behind a sea cliff.
What's hidden on the tiny uninhabited island? What could drive the men to go to such limits and use such force and determination? Why do they all use military equipment? Why do they attack the hidden enemy with such fortitude that even when shot they continue on going?

    A radiant intellectually reasoned action thriller.

    A proficiently devised intellectually reasoned action thriller that merges the gusto of a contemporary global terrorist incidence with a fascinating collection of complex episodes. The silent assault and execution of an atomic explosion at a South Pacific military base, the assassination of a leading politician, and the sabotage and hijacking of a new space shuttle reveals someone has acquired a mass of plutonium and is executing a sinister plot against civilization, which mankind has avoided up until now. The victims targeted are predominantly markedly primary bureaucrats, and it manages to illustrate how the chilling terrorism affects them and the world as the affair untangles.
    It frequently takes us into the minds of various characters. Its construction is not only intricate but also compact!
    A book that offers double the pleasure that normal thriller mysteries provide, as well as challenging you to solve the mysteries, and amazes you with how so ingenious a mystery could be contrived.
    A brilliant adventure and action thriller that explores the theme of the world's position on terrorism getting out of hand, and a classic of the genre, and a book I will read over again.

    AN ACTION ADVENTURE CLASSIC!

    A partially naked girl is shot in the leg, on her own, whilst exploring a utopian tropical golden beach, on an empty deserted island, and is chased through the unexplored wilderness of the island, baffled by crazy sounds, altering all around her.
    Can she survive? Can she just last long enough for the hidden enemy to leave? But where can she go? Can she hide?
    She discovers the only place left for her to go to is where they were attacking, when they start retreating from that region of the island. She runs frantically through the tropical paradise for her life, and is confronted by another situation. The enemy that they were attacking is now chasing her as well!

    An elevated action thriller!

    Strong descriptions and characters and plot together with majestic themes combine with a sense of wonder to create an elevated story.
    This is a superb, thought provoking novel. The plot is credible as well as the themes discussed in it.
    Must be one of the best action adventure thrillers around. I really like it. I think the writer is the best prose stylist around! And his ideas are pretty fascinating.

    A brilliant action thriller

    A highly fantastic plot with vibrant chapters.
    A brilliant book that explores the theme of terrorism going beyond unmatched heights.
    All the rudiments of a high quality adventure novel, and once the velocity gets going, it just keeps racing on. It's well thought-out with various twists so it keeps you involved and keeps you delving in to the end.
    You soon become involved, marveling at what twist and turn it's going to take to next.
    This is a gripping read for anyone who enjoys fast pace thrillers and crime fiction adventure.

    A potential blockbuster action thriller!

    Whilst an action thriller, this work holds something else! It starts with a sinister, explosive atmosphere, with a woman, partially naked, sunbathing, in blazing hot sunshine, by herself, on a golden desert island beach, on a South Pacific island, believed to be desolate, with no humans for hundreds of miles.
    All around her, she is confronted with dangers, and her worse fears, after men in speedboats suddenly appear, and race ashore, nearby, and launch into battle, with powerful military weapons, on a full scale assault on something, hidden behind a sea cliff.
    What's hidden away on the tiny uninhabited island? What could be in such an isolated region? What could drive the men to go to such limits and use such force and determination? Why do they all use military equipment? Why do they attack the hidden enemy with such fortitude that even when shot they continue on going?
    The characters are radiantly portrayed, and this is a strong aspect of this book. This is a book that will make you think about the future of mankind. There are painted scenes of occurrences strongly contrasted with the development of the plot.

    A very moving book, and just like an action thriller movie.

    The plot is interesting and it's about headline terrorism, and gives what things may in many ways end up like, and with, perhaps, the problem not being resolved ...
    Several of the plot details grow ...
    One of the best action thrillers I have read, and I definitely recommend it!
    It provides a compact, readable, incredible but credible read.

    The characters are radiantly portrayed, and this is a strong aspect of this book. This is a book that will make you think about the future of mankind. There are painted scenes of occurrences strongly contrasted with the development of the plot. It starts with the terrorists going further than before after they acquire atomic weapons. They land on a remote military base on a South Pacific island, and make a full assault on the soldiers there, and leave behind an atomic bomb, which obliterates most of the island, which makes the world realize that they mean business.

    Review by: D P Jacobs on Jan, 2011:
    It is a gripping action adventure thriller that will astound you. The characterization and descriptions are rich and vibrant. All in all, it is a wonderful tale of adventure, cunning, heroics, and scientific achievement. Somewhat surprisingly there are not that many books around like it left!!!!!

    A superb scenario that does not calm until it finishes. An excellent adventure and crime fiction novel.
    The plot is satisfactorily composed, and the characters provide an unusual perspective for a great action thriller. It has charm, and makes a compelling read. I have read the book again, and enjoyed it more ...

    This is highly enjoyable and a surprisingly easy read. On seeing it, I imagined that the plot would be incredibly complicated making it hard to follow, but I am happy to say that it is well written, and enables you to develop your ideas along with the character.
    Excellent purchase! I bought this for someone and she is absolutely delighted with it. Amazing va
