Will Adams worked as a shop salesman, painter & decorator, warehouse porter and microfiche technician, before joining a Washington DC-based firm of business history consultants. He wrote a series of corporate histories and biographies for them, taking time off between projects to travel in search of exotic settings for his stories. More recently, he worked for a London communications agency, but he now concentrates on writing fiction full-time. He lives in Essex, England.
This is a hugely entertaining thriller, very much in the vein of Matthew Reilly: an adroit mixture of action, character, and history... and the author does an excellent job of keeping the story moving at a brisk clip while giving us all the historical background we require to understand what all the fuss is about. Surprisingly, considering its high quality, this is Adams' first novel.-- Booklist
