Atom Bomb Angel is a reissued early thriller from multi-million-copy bestselling author, Peter James.
Terrorists are threatening to sabotage Britain's nuclear power plants.
One nuclear explosive smuggled inside a reactor would turn the entire core into a massive atom bomb ...and bring death and disease to millions of people for centuries to come. When Sir Isaac Quoit, chairman of the Atomic Energy Authority, disappears without trace, MI5 are alerted to the mysterious Operation Angel.
Slick superspy Max Flynn is briefed to crack the code - but can he beat the deadline before Angel strikes? Who are the terrorists? Why are the KGB involved? What are their aims and which power stations will they sabotage?
If he does not act fast, Britain will be engulfed in a nuclear nightmare.

Review by adpaton
Many writers publish early books which are, wisely, consigned to the scrap-head of their backlist, the sort of enthusiastic and overly written juvenilia which is a tad blush making in comparison with their more polished and sophisticated later work. Many authors decide these embarrassing and out-of-print early attempts can remain just that, out of print and unread: unfortunately though, most are lured by unscrupulous agents, vanity and greed, and before you know it you have eagerly bought the latest Peter James [in this case] and are bitterly disappointed. Atom Heart Angel, featuring one Max Flynn, is not exactly a bad book, but certainly one you will keep only if you are a collector. Max Flynn is a spy, and he is brought in when eco-terrorists threaten to sabotage Britain's nuclear power stations. Plus the chairman of the Atomic Energy Authority has disappeared and there is the usual race against time [excuse inexcusable cliché] to prevent the explosion that will turn Britain into a 'nuclear nightmare'. Not bad but not a batch on what he became.
