A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff.
A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before.
Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.
Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse--far worse--than mere Armageddon.
Clueless Gent’s Review
With the clock ticking down to Armageddon, Gideon Crew has to get busy!
I love a good race-against-time-or-the-unthinkable-happens thriller, and this one did not disappoint. Gideon Crew is a wonderful character, with his own array of assets and quirks.
I love stories that blend historical fact with fiction. Although there was ample opportunity for Masello to dig into the science aspect, I think it was a good choice not to. There was plenty of excitement without it!
The “ambiance” of Death at Thorburn Hall – if a story can have ambiance – is important, but hard to explain. So, I’ll give an example. Have you ever heard a song (think It’s a Small, Small World), and then could not get the song out of your head? What does it say about a book when a reader starts talking to family and friends using the same accent as the dialogue in the story? Well, it’s like that!
