The Horse at the Gates

A novel by


"Controversial and chillingly prophetic."

"A killer thriller. Right up there with Stephen Leather and Freddie Forsyth."

A nuclear detonation triggers an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in the east, forcing millions of refugees to head west and the sanctuary of Europe. As European leaders scramble to accommodate the new arrivals millions more gather at the borders of the Promised Land. For many it is a journey of hope - for others, a mission of conquest.

In London, Prime Minister Gabriel Bryce is deeply concerned by the unfolding crisis and the impending Treaty of Cairo, a radical political experiment that promises to unlock the gates of Europe. Yet Bryce is unaware that his public opposition has made him a target for assassination by those who prefer a more fundamental course of action, a deadly conspiracy involving 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."
