The Gauntlet

(London, UK) The Canadian author, Richard Aaron (who recently released a fiction masterpiece recommended by the UK Autism Foundation), will be in the United Kingdom, in May 2009, to promote his book called ‘Gauntlet.’

Ivan Corea of the UK Autism Foundation said: ‘Gauntlet, written by Richard Aaron, is a fascinating piece of fiction, it puts autism into the mainstream – through the life of Hamilton Turbee, a TTIC employee. It is a good read. Gauntlet should be on your list of summer reading books….’

‘Gauntlet’ has also been recommended by the Autism Society of America. The main character of the book, Hamilton Turbee has autism.

A terrorist threat is looming; an attack that would dwarf any other. This time, the government knows it’s coming, but doesn’t know where… or how.

From a stunning new voice in international intrigue comes a dramatic story of high-stakes missions, treachery, honor, an unlikely hero, and the ultimate terrorist attack…

Six hundred sixty tons of Semtex is detonated in a massive explosion in Libya – the last of a deadly stockpile. The operation seems to have gone smoothly, but within minutes of the explosion, CIA agent Richard Lawrence discovers that one shipment of the explosive was hijacked en route to the destruction point. Days later, a glory-seeking “Emir” broadcasts to the world that he is planning a massive terrorist strike against a major U.S. landmark. And he gives a timeline of one month.

Now a desperate chase covers four continents, as the men bent on attacking the United States use every weapon at their disposal to evade the American authorities. Time and again they prove willing to destroy anything – and anyone – standing in their way. But Hamilton Turbee, an autistic computer mastermind at the secretive and newly created TTIC agency, discovers a way to follow their tracks. His flawed genius gives the nation its only chance at stopping the attack… if the American leadership will listen. As the enemies near their destination, and an attack becomes imminent, it is up to the TTIC team, still without a true leader, to stop the massive explosion that could destroy the lives of millions.

As the world watches in horror, the President asks TTIC two questions…Where will the attack be?

And can it be stopped…….

The books is on sale worldwide.
