Bad Analysis by Colin Knight

As POTUS, Donald Trump pushes his exclusionary, racist and divisive agenda on the US and the world, a delusional wealthy aristocrat, in London, England has already taken the next frightening step.

While stoking the fires of racial and religious intolerance, funding atrocious activities of extreme right-wing groups, and deceiving his MI5 co-conspirator, a Muslim is forced to implement a horrific terrorist attack to create victims that will suffer for decades and fuel a nation-wide xenophobic backlash.

Drawn from my own experiences as a National Security Advisor in the Canadian Privy Council, and prompted by growing Western anti-immigrant attitudes, national discriminatory policies and the rise of European Nationalism, this story details the consequences of ‘bad intelligence analysis’ and how the fate of thousands can be determined by the most unlikely of people.

Next time you hear a POTUS discriminatory rant, or a watch a YouTube video of an attack on innocents, or turn away from an injustice against a fellow human, think about Bad Analysis and what could, or is happening in the world today!

Bad Analysis

In London, a delusional racist aristocrat, invisible, privileged, and well-protected by his station, ruthlessly coordinates a diabolical attack, a slaughter disguised as a domestic terror assault.

Deep in the core of MI5, a traitor, misuses, redirects and controls official resources.

Manipulating a group of cowards, rapists, murderers, and virulent racists culled from the ranks of the English Defense League, the aristocrat and the traitor aim to throw England into a state of xenophobic frenzy.

Only two men stand a chance of stopping their fanatical plot.

One is a victim of state-sponsored madness twice over, a humble Egyptian cab driver who brought his family to England in search of a better life. Aalim is meant to be a scapegoat for the actions of his captors, a “rag-head” who can be made to take the blame for their actions lest his innocent wife and son, taken hostage, suffer a terrible fate. The other, Wilson, is a crotchety intelligence analyst. An iconoclastic workaholic, rapidly losing patience with his superiors’ political gamesmanship, Wilson relies on his own brand of intelligence analysis when one of the plotters makes the attack personal and when one of his closest friends at MI5 pays the ultimate price for discovering too much.

Can Aalim’s faith and humanity overcome his fear of the monsters keeping his family captive? And can Wilson overcome the Bad Analysis that infests a system that, from the very beginning, was set against him?

'Bad Analysis' by Colin Knight is a very clever and well thought out conspiracy thriller that is fast paced, full of violent action, and twists and turns. There's lots of dominant characters too and in my opinion a typical Bond type villain on the end of a phone giving orders. This is an extremely intelligent book which shows a huge amount of attention to detail especially towards the analysing of data acquired by international government agencies in the hunt for the modern day terrorist. This is a very worrying book when you think about how easy it is to plan a terrorist attack today and agencies developed to tackle these plans have to be commended. The extensive research that has been done on the storyline must have been painstaking and very time-taking. Due to the extreme racial hatred and violence contained here if you are very politically correct then maybe this book isn't for you. I perhaps shouldn't say I enjoyed it due to the sensitive nature of the plot but I did and wish Colin every success with this book 'Bad Analysis'.

I was asked to read/review this Bad Analysis by the author. The blurb looking intriguing so I delved in. Once I had got past the first couple of chapters and kind of established who was who and what the objectives were it became riveting. For fans of Bond type movies with a bit of brutality thrown in .. not for the faint-hearted or politically correct sensitive sort but it is all written with complex entirety valid to the story. I’m not going to try and explain the plot basis .. suffice to say it is very well written, explained and contoured so you can visualise and failing that the descriptive text leaves little to the imagination! Plenty of twists and turns, will good outdo bad or vice versa .. scarily relevant in today’s world climate. Just how likely is this fiction going to become reality? A tense page turner that will thrill to the end. Will happily read more books by this author! Thanks to Colin, this is my honest opinion in exchange for a copy.
