It is 1993 as the head of a secret section of the British Ministry of Defense, begins to execute a masterful plan he feels is the only way to break the cycle of violence in Northern Ireland and pave the way for a united country.
Major Kevin MacAllister is not the man everyone believes him to be. Because he is a highly regarded expert on small-scale nuclear weapons on both sides of the Atlantic as well as a well-respected family man, no one suspects that, in just seventeen days, MacAllister is planning to implement
the first act of nuclear terrorism on the world or that he has had a beautiful mistress for quite some time. As MacAllister’s plan unfolds, emotions run
high and tensions mount as he prepares to sacrifice his friends, upstanding career, and the love of his life—all to pursue his dream. Now only one
question remains: Will he be successful or will his dream die with him in the open sea?
In this international thriller, an extraordinary nuclear terrorist unfurls a plan with the power to instill fear in millions of Londoners and bring the British government to its knees.
