The world's most elite counter-terrorist operators.
A cyber-security guru suddenly getting shot at and blown up rather more than usual.
And nuclear-armed terrorists rolling with impunity through a lawless and brutal virtual world.
Get Ready for D-BOYS.
The year is now. Islamist terrorists hack into America's most sensitive defense networks, launch chemical weapons attacks on Western cities, and stage a raid on the vulnerable nuclear weapons storage facilities in Pakistan. They are using a massively-multiplayer online video game (or "virtual world") as a platform for planning and rehearsing their attacks - forcing a squad of supremely elite Delta Force operators (reinforced by an info-security expert from the Department of Homeland Security) to go inside the game to fight them.
But the fight only begins there. Michael Stephen Fuchs' forthcoming novel is a high-tech special-forces nuclear terror thriller - featuring perilous night-time supercarrier landings, clockwork safehouse takedowns in bandit country, combat helicopter assaults into north London mosques, virtual fights to the death for control of an enormous dry dock in the largest first-person-shooter online video game of all time, breathless aircraft shoot-downs in the remote mountains of Pakistan, brutal and precise close-quarters battle sequences, waterborne SEAL Team assaults of hijacked super-container ships, Predator drones with real-time video feeds to smart-phones, and CheyTac Intervention sniper rifle systems that can kill you from a mile and a half away. These weapons, tactics, tech, battlespaces, and 21st-century warriors will be unlike anything you've ever read.
Are you ready for D-Boys? Get an advanced preview of the incomparable adventure, today.
Praise for Michael Stephen Fuchs
"Just what a technothriller should be: taut, violent, smart, and very, very technical. As if The Da Vinci Code were written by someone who wasn't an idiot." - Cory Doctorow
"Guns, blackmail, computers, unfathomable corruption, angry young Taoists, and a bloody quest for a mysterious manuscript. Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt, put in a firefight.'" - Kirkus Reviews
"Once the guns come out, it switches gear into a dream-like actioner where characters discuss favourite automatic rifles, perform startling feats of derring-do, and bust caps in various asses. Definitely worth a look." - Dr. Ian Hocking, author of Déjà Vu
"Some writers leave you thinking they know things we ordinary mortals don't have access to. Fuchs is stupendously talented." - Crème de la Crime
