Publication Day Post - Last Prophecy of Rome by Iain King

I’d like to wish a happy publication day for action-packed, gripping conspiracy thriller Last Prophecy of Rome by Iain King.  Iain’s first novel Secrets of the Last Nazi came out last year and caused a storm and got some fabulous reviews. 

Last Prophecy of Rome

An ancient empire. A terrifying threat to the World’s Superpower. Only one man can stop it. 

ROME: Maverick military historian Myles Munro is on holiday with girlfriend and journalist Helen Bridle. He’s convinced a bomb is about to be detonated at the American Embassy. 

NEW YORK: A delivery van hurtling through Wall Street, blows up, showering the sky with a chilling message: America is about to be brought down like the Roman Empire. 

Juma, an African warlord, set free by the Arab Spring, plans to make it happen. 

When a US Senator is taken hostage, a chilling chain of events begins, and Myles finds himself caught in a race against time to stop Juma. But, he’s not prepared for the shocking truth that the woman he once loved, Juma’s wife, Placidia, has now become a terrorist. 

An electrifying edge-of-your-seat thriller that will have you coming back for more.

Iain King has worked in warzones, politics, teaching and journalism. In Afghanistan he served alongside both of Britain’s most senior casualties, and in more frontline bases than any other civilian. He is one of the youngest people ever to be made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE).
Once a student at Oxford University and later a Fellow
at Cambridge, he has given talks at the UK’s Defence Academy and lectures to the Royal United Services Institute. He now leads the UK Government’s research unit on conflict, and writes a column about military history for a
popular monthly magazine. Iain King has also been a professional speechwriter for high-profile figures, a journalist, and a report writer to the UN Security Council.
He is already the author of two very successful non-fiction books, Peace at Any Price: How the World Failed Kosovo, How to Make Good Decisions and Be Right All the Time. The Myles Munro books are his first works of fiction.
Iain wrote his first novel Secrets of the Last Nazi almost entirely in secret - a double- life he kept from both his wife and children, and his employers and coworkers - until just days before publication, when a friend accidently broke his cover with an innocuous post on Facebook, which caused mayhem.
