THE HOUDINI HIJACKING
Carl Henderson is an obsessed journalist living in a strained relationship and working on no more than a hunch. He is writing a biography of Raymond Dante, a young politician who died some ten years earlier, and decides to make a personal journey to investigate the strange death of the man he so respected.
Dante was a cyber-hero who single-handedly stopped the lethal 'Houdini' computer virus attack on the country’s health system. He later became a Member of Parliament and married into Russian money but was believed to have died in a storm at sea off the coast of Scotland. His body was, however, never recovered. Henderson's research for his biography of Dante generates tantalising new clues which lead to a Caribbean island where his subject may still be alive.
What Henderson finds causes him to rethink everything he knows about Dante. With the extraordinary truth staring him in the face he must find a way of sharing his new understanding with the world at large, but this is something he must do alone and with great restrictions on his own personal freedoms.
When can the truth also be a lie? Is a conspiracy merely the truth we refuse to believe? Are we all unknowingly imprisoned by hidden digital locks of the mind? Who has the keys?
This is a political, espionage, journalistic, cyber-hacking thriller in search of the truth, set in some beautiful locations in the present and the very near future...
