REVIEWS
Brian Allen, Editor of Phenomena Magazine, says, “Anyone who has seen the film â??Lucy’ will get the idea, but more so… [This] is an absolute thrill ride of a book that is almost impossible to put down.”
SHIVA is also recommended by Kirkus Review–“an exuberant and involving read,” Portland Book Review–“having the right amount of adventure and romance, this crisscrossing genre tale isn’t just a good read, but may also look great on a big screen,” Self-Publishing Review–“the book mixes uncommon palettes and manages a masterpiece with it. If The Andromeda Strain was analyzed in four dimensions, The SHIVA Syndrome might be the result,” Midwest Book Review– “highly recommended, indeed; especially for thriller and sci-fi readers who have become deluged with too much predictability and who seek cutting-edge action, believable protagonists, and action that is solidly intense throughout,” and the San Francisco Book Review “Science fiction fans will love The SHIVA Syndrome. Fans of paranormal fiction, psychological thriller, philosophy and fantasy will love it, too.”

Incitement (Mesi & Larsen 1): Prize Winning Action Thriller A chilling killer….an enigmatic heroine.

by David Graham

WINNER OF THE JOHN MURRAY SHOW / RTE GUIDE / KAZOO COMPETITION

Review
“I loved it, a page-turner, couldn’t put it down, every page just led to the next … I’m amazed it’s a first book, it’s like a 3rd or 4th from an established writer. He’s also created an amazing character called Larsen … the best character I’ve met in these books, quite chilling but brilliant. Mesi is an enigmatic heroine. It’s a great book, if you like thrillers it’s just terrific …”
Ferdia MacAnna, producer, director, writer
Producer Custer’s Last Stand Up (BAFTA 2001).

Book Description
A brutal conflict unleashed. Who stands to win? A bloody massacre at a Mexican heroin refinery; a Miami-bound freight ship hijacked for its cargo of illegal narcotics; the ruthless assassination of a Kosovar drug lord – a war has erupted between two drugs superpowers.
As DEA Agent Diane Mesi investigates she becomes convinced that the conflict is being orchestrated by an unknown third party. But she is marginalised by her colleagues and her judgement is challenged at every turn. Only if she can expose the truth will she be able to stop the violence and save her career.
Michael Larsen is an ex-soldier and hired mercenary who has been contracted to fuel the conflict at every opportunity until it destroys both sides. As he battles his own demons, he hopes that by directing the violence he will attain some measure of redemption.
But neither Mesi nor Larsen know the full extent of the forces at play or of what is truly at stake. As they each pursue their own resolution, the violence escalates and they become increasingly vulnerable to the dangers that stalk them.

Incitement won the John Murray Show / RTE Guide / Kazoo Competition from over 500 entries.
