I notice from a review you recently wrote that you enjoyed The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
Although my first novel The Zul Enigma is set in the future, it is also a thriller and, like The Da Vinci Code, is strongly anchored in fact and has its share of plot twists. I wonder if it is a book you may enjoy reading too?
It's about a cataclysmic event that occurs on 21 December 2012, end of the Mayan calendar, and is set against a backdrop of climate change, overpopulation, world war, global deception and a new world order. A few Shelfari members have read it and they all enjoyed it and gave it good reviews, a couple here and a couple on Amazon.
If you have the time please take a look at it here or at the website www.thezulenigma.com where I've uploaded loads of info about the organisations and technology mentioned in the book. If you read eBooks and fancy giving it a go, get back to me and I'll keep you posted with the next date you can download the eBook free from Amazon.
With kind regards
