I would welcome your views on my debut thriller, [i]The Network[/i], published on 27th April 2006 and available worldwide at a massive discount through the link to Amazon.co.uk via my website at [b][url]www.charlesingram.co.uk[/url][/b].
[u]The Network - From the Inside Flap[/u].
Former MI6 field operative Harry Winchester has settled down to what he thinks will be a quiet life running his own private investigation company in the Home Counties. However, when an old friend and informant in Afghanistan warns the British Ambassador of an al-Qa'eda plot to detonate a nuclear bomb in London, Harry suddenly finds himself faced with the most important, high-risk mission of his life - tracking down not only the bomb but the criminal mastermind responsible. With attractive fellow US field operative Tess Fulton, he pursues leads from Afghanistan to Argentina, but finds that his opponents seem always to be one step ahead of them.
Meanwhile, back in London the Government prepares for the very worst. Thrillingly paced and meticulously researched, The Network is a grimly realistic portrayal of contemporary international terrorism - of the people who drive it and those who strive to defeat it, and its terrifying effects on ordinary lives.
