White Gold by Rachel Amphlett. Indie science thriller.
A conspiracy that will end alternative energy research; an organisation killing to protect its interests – and a bomb that will change the face of terrorism…
When Sarah Edgewater’s ex-husband is murdered by a radical organisation hell-bent on protecting their assets, she turns to Dan Taylor – geologist, ex-soldier, and lost cause. Together, they must unravel the research notes that Sarah’s ex-husband left behind to locate an explosive device that is circumnavigating the globe towards the London 2012 Olympics – and time is running out.
In an fast-paced ecological thriller that spans the globe, from London to Brisbane and back via the Arctic Circle, Dan and Sarah aren’t just chasing the truth – they’re chasing a bomb that, if detonated, will change the future of alternative energy research and the centre of England’s capital forever.
James Bluecoat, a young British hacker, is plagued by strange visions which haunt his dreams and hint at a mysterious destiny. Caught red-handed with US military designs, he is sent to PROPS, a top secret research facility where a handful of tech criminals are trained for active duty. Here James meets Rebecca Kent, a committed hacktivist with secrets of her own and a burning desire to escape. As their relationship grows, dark forces are already at work, plotting the pair’s ultimate destruction. And once this attack is underway, the two of them are forced headlong into a deadly race against time. The first volume in a trilogy, Bluecoat Book One is an explosive YA thrill-ride taking in the mountains of North Carolina, the frozen wastes of the South Atlantic, the wilds of Ireland, and the streets of Washington DC.
