What if ten unelected people controlled the destiny of all of us?
What if they already do?
In the third Mal Thomas novel, Mal teams up again with the enigmatic billionaire Huw Hudson in a life-or-death battle against a shadowy organization that seeks to control untold wealth and power – and destroy the world’s great democracies and religions.
After the apparent assassination of the Dalai Lama, and in order to keep a promise to His Holiness, Mal, accompanied by a mysterious Buddhist monk, embarks on a journey that takes him from Costa Rica to Nepal to the Bahamas to the Bay of Naples, ultimately leading him into a fight for the lives of those he holds most dear.
In a fast-moving and often sardonic narrative, author Jeremy Holden will have you fascinated by the extraordinary nature of the challenges that confront Mal and his friends as they launch a massive global campaign to tackle one of the great issues of our time – while seeking to counter the sinister forces at work against them.
Halo of Power provides a window into the often-murky world of global business and finance, as well as showcasing the influence of social media-driven mass persuasion.
A sequel that also works as a standalone novel, Halo of Power is the latest in Jeremy Holden’s critically acclaimed Mal Thomas series of mystery novels.
