Three men. Three goals. One bomb.
As civil war erupts in the east, millions of refugees head west, desperately seeking sanctuary in Europe. Cowed by the scale of the crisis, EU leaders scramble to accommodate the new arrivals while millions more gather at the borders of the Promised Land, waiting for the opportunity to make their own journeys west. For many it is not a journey of hope - it is a mission of conquest.
Across the English Channel, Prime Minister Gabriel Bryce stands politically isolated, his own country adrift on a tide of domestic turmoil. Bryce sees the impending Treaty of Cairo for what it really is, a dangerous political compromise that will unlock the gates of Europe and transform the continent, fuelling his darkest fears of a future torn apart by religious violence.
Determined to stop the Treaty, Bryce is unaware that he has now become a target for those who prefer a more fundamental course of action, a conspiracy that involves a vehicle packed with explosives, a jobless ex-soldier, and a former friend and political ally who plans to replace Bryce and become a beacon to the many millions of believers determined to conquer Europe for all time.
"A hard hitting political thriller book."
