'Socially awkward DCI Tracy Hanson is having a bad day. It starts with a commercial flight crashing into the heart of London. She's chased by out-of-control helicopters. A mysterious sniper is on the loose. Her boss is giving her grief. Her work colleagues are full of attitude. And now she has a new and distracting partner, jealous girlfriends, a boy who has been orphaned by the crash, and a two o'clock appointment at the IVF clinic. Hanson hunts down the rogue sniper, but each clue forces her to face the truth behind her broken past, each revelation leading her toward the impossible. A net draws in around her, and the city turns on itself. In the houses of power, politicians and the military twist the crumbling civilization to bolster their own agendas, oblivious to the destruction they are ushering in. And that's before the aliens attack. The exciting prequel to The Hadron Damnation.'
