Totally compelling, totally brilliant thriller. Have you ever considered how totally dependent the world is on a regular supply of oil? What would happen if this supply were cut off? What if this was being done deliberately by a group of powerful individualsâ intent on re-shaping the world? Following a family who find themselves, inadvertently, at the centre of the unfolding disaster the pace of this book is breath taking - I read this book in one sitting!

Synopsis

Last Light by Alex Scarrow

After several years of research into an issue that affects us all, Alex Scarrow has written a chilling thriller that depicts in a harrowingly convincing way just how fragile our society really is, and how we are only a hair's breadth away from its collapse.

It begins on a very normal Monday morning. But in the space of only a few days, the world's oil supplies have been severed and at a horrifying pace things begin to unravel everywhere. And this is no natural disaster: someone is behind this.

Oil engineer Andy Sutherland is stranded in Iraq with a company of British soldiers, desperate to find a way home to his family, trapped as transport links and the very infrastructure of daily life begins to collapse around him. Back in Britain, his wife Jenny is stuck in Manchester, fighting desperately against the rising chaos to get back to London, where their children are marooned as events begin to spiral out of control; riots, raging fires, looting, rape and murder. In the space of a week, London is transformed into a lawless and anarchic vision of Hell.

And against all this, a mysterious man is tracking Andy's family. He'll silence anyone who might be able to reveal the identities of those behind this global disaster. It seems that the same people who now have a stranglehold on the future of civilization have flexed their muscles before, at other significant tipping points in history, and they are prepared to do anything to keep their secret - and their power - safe.

A knuckle-whitening look at what our future could hold, LAST LIGHT is terrifying, compelling, and above all, convincing.
