15000 Feet Below

Mads Sorensen

 

Roy Vicars is a survivor of a bomb attack on a North Sea oil platform, supposedly carried out by Islamic terrorists. He is helpless with grief at the loss of his partner, Melanie, in the attack, and determined to find out the truth behind it.

 

He soon discovers that the destruction of the platform was merely a dry run for a far bigger and more sinister attack planned by megalomaniac oil company presidents, Larry Pappas and Irene Orinoco.

 

He forms an unlikely team with professional hit-woman, Sid, who has her own demons to conquer. Together, they join forces in a nail-biting race against time to stop the two presidents, whose plan, if successful, will result in almost certain world-wide destruction and anarchy. But Larry and Irene have their own secrets, as Roy is about to find out.

 

It’s the kind of book that might have happened had Dan Brown met Stieg Larsson.
