Paris, 2037. Alexandre Lamarque of the French external security service is hunting for eco-terrorists. Experience has taught him there is no one he can trust. Experience has taught him there is no one he can trust – not his secretive lover Mariam, not even his old mentor, Professor Fayard, the man at the centre of the web. He is ready to give up. But he can’t.
In search of the truth, Alex must follow the trail through an ominous spiral of events, from a string of brutal child murders to a chaotic coup in North Africa. He rapidly finds himself in a heart-thumping race against chaos and destruction. He could be the world’s only hope of preventing THE COMING DARKNESS . . .
I loved the sound of this book, set in Paris in 2037. Alexandre is the main character and he works for a security service in France. He trusts no one even those that are close to him. He is on the hunt for eco terrorists and will stop at nothing to find them. There is a lot of tension and grittiness to this story, I liked Alexandre, he is a very bold character. There are parts to it that are dystopian too. I feel like it was not punchy and thrilling enough for a thriller which is a shame because it could of been a really good read.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
