ABOUT THE BOOK
A thrilling debut that has been likened to John Le Carré and Raymond Chandler . . .
Paris, 2037. Alexandre Lamarque of the French external security service is hunting for eco-terrorists. Experience has taught him there is no one he can trust – not his secretive lover Mariam, not even his old mentor, Professor Fayard, the man at the centre of the web. He is ready to give up. But he can’t.
In search of the truth, Alex must follow the trail through an ominous spiral of events, from a string of brutal child murders to a chaotic coup in North Africa. He rapidly finds himself in a heart-thumping race against chaos and destruction. He could be the world’s only hope of preventing THE COMING DARKNESS . . .
What a tremendous debut this book is! Set in the not-too-distant future, there are plenty of characters that will grip your every waken moment. I soon knew, I wouldn’t sleep unless I read it all in one session. The opening scenes grabbed me from the start, as what at first seemed like an amateur break-in at a pretty hi-tech facility soon turned into a world-changing scenario.
The writing flows with perfection, with each scene bringing its qualities with quirkiness from the undertakers, who kept me entertained, to the star of the book, for me, Alex. I hope to see more of these full-bodied characters, that have solid personalities already.
I liked how the author created vulnerable characters in the story. It made me feel very involved in each chapter. It affected my emotions as they didn’t hold back on what lengths and means people would go to, to make their points a reality. The story and characters got under my skin.
A great story that shocked me and quickened my heart rate in every chapter. Fantastic!
