Blood Summit – the blurb

More complex than Dan Brown.  More thrilling than Le Carré.  Closer to the truth than either.

Counter-terrorism expert Helen Gale has one job: to protect the Presidents and Prime Ministers of the US, Britain, China, France, Russia, Germany, Canada and Italy at the Children’s Summit in Berlin.

The Reichstag is the most fortified building on earth.  Yet terrorists take world leaders, tycoons, one hundred innocent children and Helen’s husband captive.  Then the executions start.

Helen is suspended from duty and sued for negligence.  Yet she alone sees the mastermind behind the siege.  As US special forces plan a deadly assault, Helen must enter the shattered hulk of the Reichstag to stop a bloodbath.

“The genuine article: clever and melancholy: a security-pass into a world-within-a-world” – Matthew Parris on Robert Pimm.

  1. Es macht sehr neugierig: eine Frau als Anti-Terroristin finde ich naturgemäß passend – da man den Frauen eine größere soziale Empathie zuspricht als den Männern – und dass 100 Kinder als Geisel genommen wurden ist unglücklicherweise sehr zeitgemäß. In einem übertragenen Sinn sind Alte und Kinder in Geiselhaft der Politiker. Dadurch wird der Druck auf alle Beteiligten erhöht. Tatsächlich “nearer the truth.”
