The Dreadful Rocket Man
A shipment of irradiated nuclear fuel is stolen right under the nose of the Dutch and German intelligence services. A plutonium warhead is manufactured and the ‘Rocket Man’ is ordered to modify an old Scud rocket and enable it to carry a heavy payload to a distant target. How can these dastardly conspiracies be foiled and by whom?
Readers have commented that the plot scared them so much that they suffered from sleepless nights. Others wondered if it was scientifically possible to build a nuclear device as outlined in the book. A particularly paranoid friend worried that I may be giving the ‘dreadful enemy’ ideas for action.
A blast from an Improvised Nuclear Device, an IND, is no longer a question of ‘if’ only a question of ‘when’. There is also little doubt about ‘who’, ‘why’ and ‘where’. The simple answers are ‘radical Islamists’, ‘in the name of Allah’ and ‘Israel or the West’. This series of thrillers looks at some of the unlikely scenarios, or perhaps frighteningly realistic ones, that may occur.
