The Dreadful Alchemist

A blood-chilling tale of international nuclear terror

This action packed, fast moving international thriller, is a page turner from cover to virtual cover. It takes the reader from peaceful Scandinavia, to the offices of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and through a clandestine laboratory culminating in the turmoil of the Middle East where the Islamic State seeks to establish the New Islamic Caliphate. Ollie, a disgruntled young Swedish man, joins the Islamic State fanatics in Syria and is given a special mission that will promote a global nuclear war. Through subterfuge, manipulation and ruthlessness Ollie is determined to accomplish his goal. The disappearance of radioactive sources from hospitals all over Europe attracts the attention of the International Atomic Energy Agency. A plot to detonate a radioactive dispersion device is suspected, but David Avivi, a brilliant physicist who is a Mossad agent, believes something much worse is at hand. A continent wide chase begins to discover the whereabouts of the missing sources and a bizarre scientist who may be involved. David and the Israel Security Agency are just one step behind Ollie…

 ISIS will stop at nothing to promote destruction and havoc on a global scale. Who can stop them?

This exciting thriller combines two important, yet very demanding, political and scientific elements. The author skillfully leads us through the current political situation in the Western world by employing menacing ingredients such as fanatic Islam and atomic bomb threat. Though the basic scheme of this book comprises of classical components such as sex and the Middle East conflict, the reader is easily and quickly caught by the developing plot. The scientific core is (thank God) unfounded, yet it looks reasonable even for scientists that are not experts in nuclear physics.

This book is highly recommended for those who like thrillers with unexpected original plot
