About the Book

The Islamic State is creating chaos in the country with a concerted bombing campaign. It is clear that the Prime Minister, a pacifist at heart, cannot stop the carnage, but the tough-minded Anne Argento, a senior member of the government can. She needs to take control and she can only do that if she is Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister of Great Britain is to be assassinated – Frederick Vane and Andrew Martin, government analysts are sure of it. Do they allow the assassination to continue? Do they tell DCI Isaac Cook, a tall black man of Jamaican heritage? Do they inform Anne Argento? Can a policeman and a politician be trusted with the information?

A nuclear-powered submarine has been lost. A cathedral prevented from destruction at the last minute. Shopping centres and churches throughout the length of England subjected to random attacks. Patrons at public houses enjoying a quite night’s drink slaughtered.

The Master, the head of the Islamic State in England is orchestrating the attacks. Durrani, the bomb maker, is giving him the weapons of destruction. Shafi, the murderer and drug dealer is out on the street aiming to infiltrate the Islamic State, and the Master’s daughter, the beautiful Sara, seduces her future husband, and forces him to sabotage his submarine after she has inadvertently fallen in love with him.

The lead policeman, DCI Isaac Cook, and Anne Argento, the Deputy Prime Minister are heading towards a romantic entanglement where their professional proprieties conflict with their personal feelings.

About the Author

Phillip Strang was born in the late forties, the post-war baby boom in England; his childhood years, a comfortable middle-class upbringing in a small town, two hours drive west of London.

His childhood and the formative years were a time of innocence. Relatively few rules, and as a teenager, complete mobility, due to a bicycle - a three-speed Raleigh - and a more trusting community. It was the days before mobile phones, the internet, terrorism and wanton violence.

An avid reader since childhood.In his early twenties, the author, with a degree in electronics engineering, and an unabated wanderlust to see the world left the cold and damp climes of England for Sydney, Australia - the first semi-circulation of the globe, complete. Now, forty years later, he still resides in Australia, although many intervening years spent in a myriad of countries, some calm and safe ? others, no more than war zones.
