Islamic terrorists attack a London Underground train,
slaughtering two hundred innocent travelers in
seconds with a nanoweapon small enough to hide in a
hint of perfume.
A shockwave of fear grips the western world. The
unthinkable has happened--the crazies possess a
weapon of mass destruction that can be deployed at
will and against which there is no defense.
First responder, Detective Chief Inspector Quinnborne,
defies orders and hunts for the weapon's unhinged,
genius creator. The authorities label Quinnborne a
traitor, but when the nanotechnology spirals out of
control, his grit and bloody-minded determination
become humankind's last, thin hope for survival in a
world on the brink of destruction.

The characters were fantastic and helped to keep me reading because I cared about what
happened. It wasn't just about terrorists, but about people.--WiLoveBooks (Mom, blogger, and
lover of books).
Pete Barber has written a diamond here, a multi-faceted, huge blue gleaming diamond. And I'll do
my part to spread the word and hope other readers discover this author. -Benjamin Thomas (A
Vine Voice top reviewer).
What I found interesting is that, while not wanting the bad guys to succeed, I still found some of
them sympathetic at times, and even the most evil of the conspirators was involved in doing
something that could have had a positive effect on the world. -BigAl (Books & Pals, The Indies
Unlimited's top review site, 2013).
The story gives a very good description of how a terrorist is groomed for what comes to be believed
as a divine mission for Allah. One senses the slip from rational to psychotic will and tenacity that
guarantees success.--Viviane Crystal (A Vine Voice top reviewer).
