Description

The UK in chaos; tens of thousands dead; thousands more dying daily. Marshal law and armed police powerless to stop the countrywide riots, looting and murder. Only one badly wounded man can possibly prevent this scenario.This book is likely to be banned as a textbook for terrorists, detailing as it does a fool proof method of killing hundreds of thousands without the need to carry a firearm or bomb. When DI John Hunter is called out to witness the retrieval of the skeleton of a murder victim buried twelve years before he has no idea of the deadly forces he is about to unleash. A partial fingerprint gives him six possible identities for the skeleton, and trying to ascertain which of the six was the actual victim has him trying to find his way through a maze, under the stern eye of the Secret Services. The discovery of the ancient corpse opens old wounds and occasions more deaths. When John finally knows who the victim was he realises he is up against two crooked Russian financiers, Rock and Smart, aka 'Doom' and 'Death', multi-millionaires who milk the market by arranging 'accidents' around the globe to depress share prices after they have sold short, unaware of the danger he is putting himself and his wife Jane in when he confronts one of them. Just before disaster strikes John becomes aware of a scheme hatched by the Russians that is so diabolical in nature that it is almost unbelievable, a scheme that will bring the UK to its knees in very short order.Near to death from a gunshot wound and with Jane abducted and missing, John is determined that Rock and Smart shall not bring their aims to fruition. That determination will bring him down to the level of the animalsshow more
