Invasion: Downfall

(The first book in the Invasion UK series)
A novel by

May 2181: Britain is no more, reduced to a mere satellite state at the far western reaches of the Arabian Empire, a vast domain that stretches from the dark borders of Scotland to the Chinese frontier where war still rages. London is a walled city again, its war-damaged buildings demolished and replaced with bronze statues, marbled mosques and landscaped memorial gardens, all commemorating the end of western civilisation. The city is a hub of Islamic power, a power that enslaves the British people to a life of servitude and confines them to crumbling suburbs outside the city. No-one could have predicted the events that led to the end of this once-great nation. It came out of the blue, on a clear summer's day, over one hundred and sixty years ago ...June 2019: The minutes tick away toward six pm. As commuters stream out of central London a truck idles by the pavement in Whitehall, its cargo bay packed with powerful explosives. A British Airways Airbus, on final approach into Heathrow, is tracked by surface-to-air missiles. In Downing Street, recently-elected Prime Minister Harry Beecham is preparing notes for a diplomatic engagement when he is summoned to an urgent meeting. He's informed by worried security officials that a large number of surveillance targets have suddenly disappeared off the grid. Something was happening, but what? Even as the meeting takes place, thousands of Islamic fighters are quietly taking up positions near military barracks, police stations, government buildings, airports, train stations and hundreds of other targets. They have already received the 'go' signal - now they wait only for the seconds to countdown and the hour to arrive. Then the chaos will surely begin. The face of Europe is about to change, moulded by a series of events that will have global repercussions far into the future...
