(London, UK) Lee Scott MP, a leading autism campaigner in the House of Commons in Westminster recently helped launch a thriller, a book titled ‘Gauntlet’ written by the Canadian author Richard Aaron. Scott met with Richard Aaron and autism campaigner Ivan Corea in the House of Commons.
‘Gauntlet’ is a nail biting, action packed novel. A terrorist threat is looming; an attack that would dwarf any other. This time, the government knows it’s coming, but doesn’t know whereâ€¦ 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 attackâ€¦
Six hundred sixty tons of Semtex is detonated in a massive explosion in Libya â€“ 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 â€œEmirâ€ 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 â€“ and anyone â€“ 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 attackâ€¦ 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 stoppedâ€¦
