Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
A coded message. A desperate plea for help. The unthinkable happens. And then all hell breaks loose!
In this second book of the Thomas Gunn thriller series, by bestselling author AFN Clarke, Thomas (ex-Special Forces) receives a mysterious phone call from his journalist friend, Morgan. His instincts go on high alert. She’s clearly in danger. But where? And why? Thomas fears she’s uncovered new information about the Orange Moon conspiracy that led to the brutal murder of his father. Information that’s explosive. That’s worth killing for. He has to track her down before it’s too late!
Racing to follow tangled leads, Thomas and his girlfriend Julie uncover a convoluted minefield of financial dealings, billions of dollars shipped through Afghanistan, Iran, Bolivia, Estonia, the UK and the Jonas Trust in the USA. They are thrust into the path of Mexican drug cartels, corrupt politicians, the FBI, the UK intelligence services and their arch nemesis, Marika Keskküla. Thomas and a Special Forces team had devastated her nuclear enrichment plant in Estonia a year ago. They thought she had gone underground for good. But power and money have a way of attracting the most corrupt and unscrupulous like moths to a flame.
The burning question is, what’s the “end game” that binds all these unlikely “players” together? And what’s the connection to a secret mission in Afghanistan, with painful memories that Thomas would rather forget? It seems he was a pawn in an insidious plan back then, that is about to come to a dramatic climax. Is he still that pawn, cleverly being played for what he can do and uncover?
Outraged at that possibility, he takes an action so shocking and unexpected, that his team fear he’s lost his mind. Has he? Or can he finally avenge his father’s death and strike at the heart of the conspirators forever!
I’m fortunate to be the author of the bestselling nonfiction book CONTACT, which was serialized in a British newspaper and made into an award winning film by BBCTV. That launched my “official” career as a writer and I have never looked back. These days I write fiction of various genres, the latest being my Thomas Gunn thriller series which seem to have captured the imagination of readers world-wide.
For me – and I suspect for most of my readers – good books are a great way to shut out every day life, suspend normal ways of thinking, and allow yourself to be transported to another world. I love a good story, enjoy laughing out loud, being challenged by thought provoking ideas, sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation of what’s to come and the thrill of unexpected endings. And so I hope that’s what my readers get – the thrill, suspense, drama, intrigue, humour, mystery, danger, poignancy, love and laughter of life seen through different eyes.
Apart from my many lives as a racing car driver, Captain in Britain’s Parachute Regiment, screenwriter, pilot, yacht skipper, and proud father of four daughters I’ve lived in Hong Kong, India, Libya, Iran, the UK, USA, Australia and travelled extensively. Favourite things to do? Write, sail, listen to opera, rock music, cook gourmet meals, drink wine, have heated discussions and travel off the beaten path.
Books include CONTACT; the Thomas Gunn thriller series (THE ORANGE MOON AFFAIR and THE JONAS TRUST DECEPTION); political thrillers (AN UNQUIET AMERICAN), human drama (DRY TORTUGAS), humor/satire (DREAMS FROM THE DEATH AGE; ARMAGEDDON), psychological horror (COLLISIONS) with more coming soon.
