Michael Gannon is enjoying a day’s
fishing aboard his diving boat, the Donegal Rambler.He is some thirty miles offshore from Little
Abaco, an island in the Bahamas he now calls home, when he witnesses a jet
plane crashing into the sea a short distance away.Gannon is unable to send a mayday alert from
the remote spot because his radio antenna is broken.There are no other boats around and he
quickly makes his way towards the sinking wreckage.When he arrives, there is still no sight or
sound of a rescue team, so he grabs his diving gear and plunges into the water
to see whether there are any survivors.As
he swims into the twisted metal fuselage, he makes a discovery that leads him
into a situation that will threaten not only his own life, but also the lives
of those around him.
The writing is characterised
by the author’s use of succinct sentences which burst from short chapters to
drive a relentless and thrilling narrative.Gannon, the likeable tough guy protagonist, finds himself working
alongside two equally engaging characters as the tragedy of the plane crash
turns into a full-blown international conspiracy.The trio endeavour to make sense of a world
in which truth and justice are turned upside down but find themselves moving
from disbelief to anger when they confront treachery deep within the security
services to which they are, or have been, attached.
At Nothing thunders along at breath-taking speed and it took me along with
it.The story is absorbing, outrageous
and unpredictable.There are twists and
turns galore as Gannon and his friends confront powerful villains who kill
without mercy from their positions of power and privilege.A rip-roaring read that intrigues and entertains
from the first page to the last.
