A blood-chilling tale of international nuclear terror
This action packed, fast moving international thriller, is a page turner from cover to virtual cover. It takes the reader from peaceful Scandinavia, to the offices of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna and through a clandestine laboratory culminating in the turmoil of the Middle East where the Islamic State seeks to establish the New Islamic Caliphate. Ollie, a disgruntled young Swedish man, joins the Islamic State fanatics in Syria and is given a special mission that will promote a global nuclear war. Through subterfuge, manipulation and ruthlessness Ollie is determined to accomplish his goal. The disappearance of radioactive sources from hospitals all over Europe attracts the attention of the International Atomic Energy Agency. A plot to detonate a radioactive dispersion device is suspected, but David Avivi, a brilliant physicist who is a Mossad agent, believes something much worse is at hand. A continent wide chase begins to discover the whereabouts of the missing sources and a bizarre scientist who may be involved. David and the Israel Security Agency are just one step behind Ollie...
˃˃˃ ISIS will stop at nothing to promote destruction and havoc on a global scale. Who can stop them?
This exciting thriller combines two important, yet very demanding, political and scientific elements. The author skillfully leads us through the current political situation in the Western world by employing menacing ingredients such as fanatic Islam and atomic bomb threat. Though the basic scheme of this book comprises of classical components such as *** and the Middle East conflict, the reader is easily and quickly caught by the developing plot. The scientific core is (thank God) unfounded, yet it looks reasonable even for scientists that are not experts in nuclear physics.
This book is highly recommended for those who like thrillers with unexpected original plot.
With so much going on in the world with I.S.I.S this was a pretty difficult read. The Dreadful Alchemist is a very well written book with a lot of detail into the life of Ollie who becomes a highly decorated I.S.I.S member. It was interesting in the fact that it has a lot of true fact detail contained in it's pages and gives one a feel of how the terrorist group works in getting what it wants.
It has a lot of action in it, so if you are a thrill seeker, this is the book to read. The writer is very detailed so that you get a great picture in your mind of what is going on in the story. Ollie is converted into the Muslim group and given a specific goal, obtaining items used for destruction. While reading this book I had to remind myself that it was just a book. The way it was written and with everything going on in the news about terrorism, it gave that real feel to it.
This book is definitely not for the faint of heart because it contains a lot of violence but is a fantastic read that I personally could not put down!
