The Westminster Disaster

(1978)
A novel by

 
 
Fred Hoyle, the world-reknowned cosmologist, and his son Geoffrey have teamed up once again to produce a scientific suspense novel with a setting that is uncomfortably closer to home than in their recent excursions into the depths of space.

The Westminster Disaster' is based on the present (then 1978) world shortage of high-grade uranium and the action turns on a Soviet threat to use nuclear blackmail against London. When the British Ambassador to the U.N. seeks to veto a Soviet demand for sanctions against South Africa, the threat becomes a hideous reality. Writing from a position of intimate knowledge of advanced trends in research and science administsration, in this novel the Hoyles give vivid expression to their deep fears about the present world situation and about carefully laid plans for Soviet domination.
