Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite An attack on a virus company specializing in related research by an outfit named ARF (Animal Rights Front) and the subsequent release of a large number of animals, many of them infected, marks the beginning of the thriller, The Quiet Way by Robin Melhuish. There are some persons of British origin who are in clandestine operations with Bin Laden on matters of biological terrorism, who develop research, especially of H1N1 derivatives. Also, urgent discussions are held at all levels of government regarding the threat posed by the release of hundreds of lab animals, as well as the danger posed by a rise in industrial accidents. In this scenario, the security agencies have to face a challenging task: to locate the source of the trouble, some of which is hiding in their own backyard, before society is torn to pieces. The Quiet Way by Robin Melhuish has an action packed plot, quite an imaginative selection of events, places and proponents, as well as a gripping narrative. Whether in the form of riots, or as people attempting to flee the nation, the disruptions of a terrorist attack are shown to the fullest extent, and the prime roles of security agencies are presented with elan. In this sound plot, the difficulty of dealing with such a biological agent is shown clearly. A worthy attempt and indeed a good addition to our literary wealth, especially in the thriller genre.
Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite The Quiet Way by Robin Melhuish is about a mega scale catastrophe like the Twin Towers, but this time it is happening in modern England. The authorities suspect an Al Qaeda member in the country, but they have no way of finding out who that person is. On top of that, a lab assistant is kidnapped from a research lab and the aggressor has taken 30 tons of ether with him. The threat is real and it is evident that it is going to be ghastly and devastating. DCI Hanks is doing his best, but with the threat so big and with the lives of so many people on the line, he is under a lot of pressure from his superiors. With issues and crime coming at them from all directions, can DCI Hanks prioritize the biggest threat of all? One life is just as precious as a thousand lives, but does he have the ability and the authority to make a decision and see it through to fruition? The Quiet Way by Robin Melhuish is a pretty realistic terrorist thriller. The story is thrilling and attracts the attention of the reader from the get go. The suspense is alive until the last moment when the reader is ready to know everything. The story builds perfectly and precisely. It is a decent length novel, perfectly paced, and the words are almost alive. The reader is not left out in any way; the reader is invested and involved in the novel, which is a great achievement. An amazing novel that was beautifully written and expressed.
