My Review:

This is one of those books where I seriously suggest you just go get yourself a copy instead of reading my review – the book is an amazing, up to date, enthralling read that had me riveted from start to finish.

Myles Munro is a brilliant character, a highly intelligent misfit, expert analyst of military history and something of a maverick. He’s absolutely awesomely different! The knowledge and expertise of the author shines through in this superbly written, highly topical, action packed thriller. I’m putting down the modern day port in Rome to artistic licence….It is a roller coaster, highly emotive and fast paced thriller. Journeying through the historic demise of the Roman Empire to ascertain threats to modern day America with migrants, terrorists, threats to the economy, kidnapping, murder, biological threats, this story has them all – and lots more besides!

I hadn’t read anything by this author before but he’s now one I’ll certainly be looking for in future. The story has a well crafted, intricate and believable plot with so many unexpected twists and turns it will keep you (figuratively) on the edge of your seat. Even the final episodes have surprises in store for the reader! I’m going to get a copy of the earlier novel in this series and will certainly be looking out for any future works by this highly talented author. If you enjoy suspense, mysteries and thrillers this is a not to be missed novel, one I can’t recommend highly enough, totally stupendously, suspense filled and  brilliant thrilling read.

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

Synopsis:

An ancient empire. A terrifying threat to the World’s Superpower. Only one man can stop it.

ROME: Maverick military historian Myles Munro is on holiday with girlfriend and journalist Helen Bridle. He’s convinced a bomb is about to be detonated at the American Embassy.

NEW YORK: A delivery van hurtling through Wall Street, blows up, showering the sky with a chilling message: America is about to be brought down like the Roman Empire.

Juma, an African warlord, set free by the Arab Spring, plans to make it happen.

When a US Senator is taken hostage, a chilling chain of events begins, and Myles finds himself caught in a race against time to stop Juma. But, he’s not prepared for the shocking truth that the woman he once loved, Juma’s wife, Placidia, has now become a terrorist.
