'A relentlessly plotted conspiracy thriller ... Superb' M.W. Craven.
A murdered scientist. An AI breakthrough that could change the world. A conspiracy at the heart of the British elite.
At a global tech gala hosted at the British Museum, scientist Tobias Hawke is due to unveil an astonishing breakthrough. His AI system appears to have reached consciousness, making Hawke the leading light in his field.
But when terrorists storm the building, they don't just leave chaos in their wake. They seize Hawke's masterwork, sparking a chain reaction of explosive events which could end the world as we know it.
Michael North, ex-assassin and spy-for-hire, must find the killers and recover the AI. But he can't do it alone. Hawke's wife, Esme, and teenage hacker, Fangfang, have their own reasons to help complete North's mission – and together they unravel a dark and deadly conspiracy which stretches right to the top of the British elite.
Can North survive long enough to uncover the whole truth? Or is it already too late for humanity?
'Relentlessly plotted with a blistering pace, Curse the Day is a sharply drawn, gleefully witty conspiracy thriller. Tackling tomorrow's nightmare today, and packed full of characters you either cheer on, or hiss and boo off the page, this is a superb novel' M.W. CRAVEN.
'A brilliant technothriller that reads like a Bond movie, complete with terrific action sequences, memorable characters, and the fate of the world at stake. I could not put this book down, from the opening that completely reverses all expectations to the cracking climax. The pace never lets up and the story stays with you long after the final page' ZOË SHARP.
