It's coming. The only questions are How and When
It is several years since the devastation of The World Trade Centre on 11th September 2001. Now an even more sinister attack is about to happen in the western world. An even more terrifying threat is about to be exposed…
Daniel Newton is a van driver. For nearly ten years he has crossed through Europe into Turkey to pick up goods and bring them back to England on a regular basis. Mostly it is rugs, leather goods and fine cloth that he brings back and he always has the correct paperwork.
Dieter Zussman arrived in the UK several years ago. Ostensibly from the Jewish community in Israel he owns a couple of small Jewellery shops in Reigate and Dorking. He imports expensive-looking items such as bracelets, bangles and watches from the East. Two years earlier he was put in touch with Daniel Newton and now uses him to import his jewellery.
Lying dormant in the UK for several years, waiting to strike, are two cells of an extremist Islamic movement. Waiting, plotting, scheming, knowing that one day the time will be right to inflict a terror attack on mainland UK that is devastating and irreversible.
Now, as the story begins, the time is right, but unknown to the terrorists a secret group known as ATRIUM (an acronym for Anti-Terrorist Research Infiltration and Undercover Manoeuvres) is working to stop the unthinkable from happening.
Add to the playing field a lone wolf who is out for revenge against the powers he feels have badly treated him, a man with the skills and contacts needed to inflict his own brand of terror against the country he grew up in. A new terror is coming and it is up to ATRIUM to move quickly to stop the impending wave of death, even as it spreads across Europe on its way to the UK.
