Quick Book Review – The Alexandria Project, by Andrew Updegrove
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE ALEXANDRIA PROJECT
In a slight departure from my usual reading material of John le Carré and non-fiction technical tomes, I recently read The Alexandria Project by Andrew Updegrove; it turned out to be a nice mix of the two.
Without wishing to spill too many beans, it’s a fun read featuring mystery attackers with mystery motives, three-letter-agencies butting heads whilst manipulating people down their chosen path, military coups and crazy politicians with their finger on the Big Red Button.
The plot is spookily close to reality, especially in the Big Red Button department – I was reading the story on the actual dates featured in the book, at which time events were playing out on the world stage much as they were in my Kindle (plot spoiler, courtesy of BBC News, here). Coincidence? Or does Mr Updegrove have a crystal ball?
For the grand total of £1.95, you can’t really go wrong. Swing by Amazon and pick up a copy!
