Overview

One line Synopsis:- An international political intrigue thriller set in the aftermath of the collapse of Russian communism.

Two paragraph synopsis:- An escaped British political prisoner becomes involved with group of mercenaries formed to eliminate weapons of mass destruction wherever they can be found.
The plot, set against a backdrop of post-communist political unrest in Russia, is complicated by an American President desperate to gain a second term in office at any cost.

Synopsis:-

When Simon Denchfield lands his crippled seaplane on a secluded lagoon on a Pacific Island, near the Marquesas, he never expected to find it inhabited by anyone, let alone the determined people he found there.
Treated with the deepest suspicion at first, Denchfield finds himself accepted when their leader recognises him.
Worried that he is about to be exposed, Denchfield discovers the group are part of a secret organisation dedicated to the eradication of the world's weapons of mass destruction. He accepts an invitation to join them as one of their leaders and soon finds himself flying into Russia attacking their nuclear arsenals and missile stockpiles.
With Russia weakened and disorganised by the collapse of communism, Denchfield suggests a way the US President can, not only gain himself a second term in office, but also ensure his name is recorded in history as the man who brought peace to the world.
While the President is excited by the idea his military advisers are not. They see the growing accord between the two super-powers as diminishing their own standing and importance. Together with a deputy director of the CIA, General Maxwell and Admiral Freeman arrange to have a US submarine fire a nuclear missile at Moscow on the eve of the disarmament signing ceremony in Geneva.
Alerted to the incident, Denchfield manages to destroy the weapon in flight and so averts a catastrophe.
With the job of world weapon destruction half done, the leaders of the secret organisation find themselves being offered, and taking, important United Nations jobs.

    The Hunt for Danger by Peter G Bailey is a brave international t

    The Hunt for Danger by Peter G Bailey is a brave international thriller, dealing with age old popular conflict between the United States and Russia.




    I had always enjoyed political thrillers, as they make for very interesting stories and extremely twisted plots. The way the author did this, you can almost see it unfolding in front of your own eyes in real life. In addition to that, having read another book by the author in the past, I must say that I am a big fan of his style of writing.




    Now as for the book itself: it starts of strong with the President of the United States, Roland Bannerman, already in the middle of a tight situation. Aside from the intriguing newspaper headline that is the source of his current anger, we see a background of his personal enemies. We also see the lengths they go thru to contain a story that provided an unflattering view of the current US government.




    Although you see some of the major characters in the beginning, we don't actually hear of the protagonist Simon Vivian Denchfield until towards the end of Chapter 2. But then it will be explained that, you actually have already heard of him but under a different name! But regardless, you will continue to follow Simon's footsteps and see through some decisions he had to make to destroy a weapon that can wipe out the entire world.




    I like the length of the chapters; the book itself isn't as lengthy as other books, but it does possess a strong storyline. In my opinion, deep thinkers and political activists will especially enjoy this book because of its deep political roots and because of all the technical aspects contained herein. It doesn't make for a light, easy read - but a very enjoyable one nonetheless!
