Irish-born Con Lindow , a molecular biologist from Boston, is in London on a research project. While waiting for his brother near a tube station, he watches in horror as a massive bomb destroys a crowded bus, killing his brother, who may have been carrying the bomb. Suspected of complicity by elements of the Security Service who have their own secrets to hide, Con soon joins forces with Commander Foyle, head of Scotland Yard’s Anti-Terrorist Branch and the one man who believes he is innocent. With the clock ticking down, the two men must identify and stop a maniac before he carries out a final attack on an unknown target. This is intelligent thriller goes beyond the headlines to show the inner workings of the police. Porter, the U.K. editor of Vanity Fair, weaves multiple threads, ingenious complications, intriguing puzzles, sophisticated technology, and meticulous research into a dazzling story of unusual insight that concludes with a heart-pounding manhunt. Highly recommended.

LJ, vol. 125, no. 6 (April 1, 2000), 131-132.
