Book description

World War III is looming …

Harry has been trying to “get away from it all” for a long time, so he goes sailing to nearby islands with his friend Toby Bowen. They pass a university expedition searching for the wreck of HMAS Darwin, which vanished in World War II. They meet a mutual friend, Monty, and a pair of beautiful women aboard Monty’s launch, and head for the Hesperides, a group of outlying rocky islands, barren and seldom visited.

But a curious incident occurs that catapults them out of their idyllic setting and slaps them bang into the middle of a potential real world catastrophe.

On the way to the Hesperides they pass an old minesweeper, the Waroona, due to be “hulked”. Diving the reefs, Harry finds a naval gun in shallow water but does not tell the others because he is not sure what it signifies.

Soon it becomes clear that they have stumbled upon a plot by terrorist-supporting groups that will forever damage relations between Britain, America and Australia, unless Harry and his friends can prevent it.

But can the momentum towards World War III be halted?

 

Counterstrike is a novel combining a high-seas adventure, lethal international politics and a sliver of romance. Told by master storyteller Hal G.P. Colebatch, Counterstrike will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Literally.” – Coverage Report #687
