A Flash of Lightning by Tony Drury

A Flash of Lightning is the fourth novel from writer Tony Drury. This book is not one for the children, but as parents if we set and a good example, then children will learn to love reading too. So with this in mind I started to read A Flash of Lightning.

Jessica agrees with her mother; it’s time she had a baby. She’s given up looking for the right father. City financier, Matthew, has raised £6 million to make a film. Now it’s gone missing and his neck is on the line. Detective Chief Inspector Sarah Rudd has learned that there are terrorists planning to murder 400 people. She doesn’t know where or how and now her brilliant career is threatened.

Will DCI Rudd uncover the terrorist plot in time to save the nation? Who has taken the film money? Will Matthew find the love of his life and a new mother for his daughter? And why is The Great Train Robbery on everybody’s mind?

A flash of Lightning

A Flash of Lightning sets off with three stories of very different people, City Financier Matthew, Detective Inspector Sarah and Jessica. The story sets up the characters from the first page, with snapshots of their past history’s. Their loves and losses, but where the story will take them is the mystery. This thrilling book is well written, and although I haven’t finished it yet, has enough intrigue to keep me reading. I haven’t read any of the other three books by Tony Drury, but I know other people have said that they think this is his best yet. With a smattering of romance this is a dramatic thriller about the danger of modern times.
