Steve Baldwin, former Royal Marine, continues his fight against terrorism before ben-Zhair can trigger a global-wide disaster. Marinero relies on current political tensions, oceanic shelfs, and modern weaponry to show one way terrorist can use the Atlantic against Europe and the United States. The adventure shows how international politics make light of collateral damage. The characters seem realistic in their role and there are technological and scientific theories to support events.

Steve Baldwin and Ellie Williams are out looking for the psychopath assassin controlled by the Chinese and she is out looking for Adu ben-Zhair. Steve & Ellie are on their own in this search as they soon realize that time is getting short to find either one of them. ben_Zhair is setting off bombs that will cause earthquakes and tsunamis to many areas. A different form of terrorism but just as deadly. Steve wants to get done and to his boat just off Gibraltar. Much going on in this exciting story ...more

This is book 3 of the Maghreb trilogy but still makes sense as a 'stand alone' story (I haven't read the other books). It lacks a little punctuation in the dialogue sections, but not enough to detract. Although it's the third book of a trilogy the story is sufficiently open-ended that it could be continued. Certainly the last section of the book wasn't what I was expecting. Overall, it's fast paced, thought provoking and very readable.

Thanks to James Marinero for my free copy.

This was a spy thriller about fanatical Islamists attempting to take over the world. Very topical story and frighteningly believable. High tension all the way through until the final climax. The conclusion was a bit of a damp squid. Some good characters and an engaging storyline.
