Twenty-first century threats need a twenty-first century hero.
Meet Dan Taylor.
International settings and colourful characters bring the world of modern counter-terrorism and cyber security to life, exploring complex technology while providing an adrenalin-fuelled reading experience.
With plotlines ripped straight out of today’s news, and often exposing a security threat that is shocking in its simplicity and potential impact, Rachel Amphlett has created an enduring espionage series that has readers hooked from page one.
Our review of Behind the Wire, book four in the Dan Taylor series:
Rachel Amphlett’s new book, Behind the Wire, releasing May 9, 2016, is the fourth in her Dan Taylor series, which just keeps getting better and better. Behind the Wire is my favorite Amphlett book so far. Meticulously researched and full of nail-biting suspense, Amphlett’s new book demonstrates her prodigious skills as a writer. Amphlett proves that there is no conflict between the thriller genre and the literary – the book is beautifully written and full of characters with emotional depth, without losing any of the suspense that Amphlett fans have come to count on.
The book takes place in Morocco and Western Sahara, a setting that will be unfamiliar to many readers but one that Amphlett evocatively brings to life. Fleeing from crowded north-African marketplaces to desert compounds to the stinging sun and gritty sand of the Sahara, Dan Taylor’s life is put in jeopardy again and again as he tries to save the daughter of an old friend and prevent Western Sahara from descending into civil war. Pursued by militants and unsure of who he can trust, Dan finds himself changing, forced to kill or be killed. In this book, Amphlett pushes Taylor to new levels and plumbs the depths of his character as he is forced to confront memories of his past and threats to his future.
The plot is not only incredibly exciting, but plausible and eerily prescient as well. This book is a must-read!
