DESTINY CAN BE CHANGED.
When a billionaire industrialist seizes control of the top-secret Destiny project, physicist Neil Aldridge must race to prevent a disaster that will claim millions of lives. His allies: an elite EU special forces team, codenamed KESTREL.
As the chase leads to London, Amsterdam and beyond, they must battle a ruthless adversary: a trained killer with an unnatural ability, who seeks to hasten the cataclysm.
With time running out, Aldridge discovers that he shares his enemy's power, which may be the key to salvation — or cause death on an unprecedented scale…

Cracking fast-paced tale
There’s not a lot of depth to this, but it makes up for it with excitement and drama. Once the action’s started it doesn’t really slow down until the end.
A great combination of secret forces, huge consequences, chases, sciFi and tension which kept me turning the pages - I finished it in a few days.
A great thrill ride. I’ll be buying Number 2!
An extremely fast paced techno thriller, solid plot, believable characters and an explosive ending, someone should make a movie of this.
Had followed Matt for ages on Twitter because of his tech credentials and I’m glad I hung around for his career switch to novelist. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I’m usually a slow reader but I got through this in a few days (which is highly unusual for me). It’s gripping and believable with characters you truly come to care about. I found it hard to leave alone and the story hung around with me for a long time after.
He might not be an influence for Matt but I detected shades of Michael Marshall Smith in the writing — both have a way of writing the fantastical elements with wit, style and realism that speaks to my sense of humour.
