‘A stylish, riveting thriller’ Daily Mail
‘An assured page-turner … it combines action and foreign locations with big ideas a la Dan Brown’ Sunday Times

The US President Thompson has been dreaming of his own death. A repeating nightmare that hounds him night after night that he can’t ignore: something tells him it’s not just a dream, it feels too real.

Thompson’s doctor, military psychiatrist Josh Cain, is summoned to a church tower near the White House. He thinks he is there to talk down another suicidal ex-Marine. But the man he finds tells him of a plot to kill Thompson, revealing secrets he can’t possibly have known – just seconds before a sniper’s bullet takes him out . . .

Battles have been fought man to man, then machine to machine, and even in cyberspace. But now there is a different battlefield emerging: human consciousness and the fight for our minds.
