About this title

Synopsis:

A week is a long time in politics, but six days can destroy democracy... It should be the happiest days for former special forces agent Drew Connor. Out walking in New Hampshire's White Mountains with his girlfriend Sheila Cass, he has butterflies in his stomach and an engagement ring in his pocket. Then a thunderstorm hits, and they take shelter in what Sheila thinks is a relay station for a state utility. But when Drew enters the building, he realizes they have stepped into something far more sinister. Bullet-proof checkpoints. Telephone hotlines. A sign by a map that reads INTERNMENT CENTERS. And on a whiteboard a large, handwritten message: CASE SHILOH: ON 9/19 WE TAKE HER BACK! Drew's instinct is to get Sheila out as quickly as possible, and when they stop at a general store, and the police open fire without asking questions, his worst fears are confirmed. Someone wants them dead for what they have seen. And as Drew and Sheila discover, they have stumbled on a plot to kill the president and overthrow the American government, a plan that is to take place in just six days time. With the conspirators claiming they are terrorists on the run, Drew knows it is going to be hard enough just to stay alive, let alone put a stop to this most deadly of political schemes... By the award-winning author of RESURRECTION DAY and TWILIGHT, SIX DAYS is a 'what-if' thriller of chilling credibility, a terrifying tale of what can happen when power games are mistaken for politics, and paranoia for patriotism. REVIEWS "The whole shebang is as American as apple pie and handguns in the classroom. Of course there's an almighty conflagration at the climax, but DuBois shapes a tight sentence and the plot crackles along." -- Sunday Age newspaper "A well-paced, exciting "what-if" thriller." -- Irish Independent newspaper "...DuBois injects such pace into his writing that the story rips breathlessly along." -- Birmingham (UK) Post
