City financier, Matthew, has raised £6 million to make a film. Now it’s gone missing and his neck is on the line.
Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Rudd has learned that there are terrorists planning to murder 400 people. She doesn’t know where or how and now her brilliant career is threatened.
Will DCI Rudd uncover the terrorist plot in time to save the nation? Who has taken the film money? Will Matthew find the love of his life and a new mother for his daughter? And why is The Great Train Robbery on everybody’s mind?
This is the second novel, I have read by this author - the first being Megan's Game. A Flash of Lightning is another very good read. The main plot revolves around DCI Rudd, who must enter the mind of a terrorist to stop the killing of 400 innocent British citizens ... in a second plot, a stockbroker in the city must save his company after a £6 million film, financed by his clients, turns sour. The two plots cleverly collide in A Flash of Lightning. The early part of the book is dedicated to romance with periodic flashes back and forth to the story of the "Great train robbery". Why ? I won't spoil the read and go into detail but I will say that you won't be able to put the book down until you have unraveled the link between, the great train robbery, modern day terrorism and A Flash of Lightning. I particularly loved the history and the insight into the world of films and financing. All-in-all, a very clever, imaginative and well researched romantic thriller.
