Killing Time by Caleb Carr

Killing Time

Caleb Carr

A compulsively readable modern take on the traditional Sci Fi novel, combining Boys' Own heroics with a truly scary and believable idea for world dominion! And as a final bonus, a terrifying glimpse into the mind of a sociopath terrorist.

Extract

Malcolm's speedy and thorough manipulation of all materials relating to the 'discovery' of the notes, on the Internet and all ancillary information systems, led to their being accepted as wholly genuine long before careful observers could offer more skeptical or scholarly opinions. The Germans rose with typical delicacy to the bait laid out by Tresillian's team, declaring they would not sit in the halls of European power with the British until London disavowed Churchill and accepted full responsibility for the war.
