9780091794804: Prayers for the Assassin

America, thirty-five years in the future, a very different country from today's. It is now an Islamic Republic; calls to prayer echo across the cities and the Black Robes, the enforcers of public virtue, prowl the streets on the lookout for inappropriate dress or behaviour. The fear of terrorist attacks is pervasive. As the story opens, a beautiful young historian, Sarah, the niece of the head of state security, has disappeared. Her lover, Rakkim, a Fedayeen warrior, fears she is in danger. He is right. She has uncovered an explosive secret that threatens the very foundations of the New Order. She is running for her life, hunted by Darwin, the State's elite assassin, who was trained in the same unit as Rakkim. Her safety and the future of the world depend upon Rakkim's Fedayeen skills and his ability to outwit a brilliant psychopathic killer. The chase takes them from the outlaw territories of the Pacific Northwest to the anything goes glitter of Las Vegas as they battle to reveal the truth.

Review:

"The pace, and the author's nerve, never slacken" ( Daily Mirror)

"A clever, thought-provoking and nail-bitingly exciting thriller set in a fascinatingly unfamiliar America. Highly recommended" ( Irish Independent)

"A futuristic fantasy that puts an Orwellian nation, the Islamic Republic, where the United States used to be... genuinely frightening" ( New York Times)

"A brilliant futureshock tale... Truly stunning" ( SFX Magazine)

"One of those rare books that both educates and entertains. It will make you stop and question everything you take for granted. I literally couldn't put it down" (Vince Flynn)

From the Publisher:

The stunning new novel from Robert Ferrigno imagines the United States 40 years in the future: a moderate Islamic nation following a chaotic cultural and political revolution.
