Curse The Day by Judith O’Reilly

The Blurb

At a global tech gala hosted at the British Museum, scientist Tobias Hawke is due to unveil an astonishing breakthrough. His AI system appears to have reached consciousness, making Hawke the leading light in his field. 

But when terrorists storm the building, they don’t just leave chaos in their wake. They seize Hawke’s masterwork, sparking a chain reaction of explosive events which could end the world as we know it. 

Michael North, ex-assassin and spy-for-hire, must find the killers and recover the AI. But he can’t do it alone. Hawke’s wife, Esme, and teenage hacker, Fangfang, have their own reasons to help complete North’s mission – and together they unravel a dark and deadly conspiracy which stretches right to the top of the British elite. 

Can North survive long enough to uncover the whole truth? Or is it already too late for humanity?

The Author

Judith O’Reilly is the author of Wife in the North, a top-three Sunday Times bestseller and BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week. It was based on Judith’s eponymous blog which was named as one of the top 100 blogs in the world by the Sunday Times, and credited with kicking off the popularity of domestic blogging in the UK. Judith is a former political producer with BBC 2’s Newsnight and ITN’s Channel 4 News, and, when she isn’t writing novels, she writes for the Sunday Times, has acted as a strategic communications adviser for both government and business.

Review

This was a modern day James Bond, filled with the latest in scientific AI progress. Its a very clever, fast paced novel and brings together the hero who has a death wish with some new and complex characters.

I love Fangfang as she’s geeky, brave and clever but she knows exactly what to do and she’s out to do the right thing.

I want to read more about these people as they’re so diverse, but they just care for each other.

Without giving it away I love the way the book twists and people might have got their just deserts and then again, it’s open to more, as there’s enough strands to carry on into more North books.

Absolutely brilliant book. I’d definitely recommend this one.

Hi and welcome to my new blog. I’m reading and reviewing the books I read, after a long break I realised just how much I missed reviewing. I’ve been a voracious reader since childhood and I don’t imagine that changing. 
If you would like me to read and review a book you’re bringing out, please feel free to contact me. If it’s not my type of book I won’t waste your time by agreeing. I don’t promise 5 star reviews, and I know authors do appreciate feedback , but I can only promise an honest review. 
 Genres I love include crime, thriller, tartan noir is a stand out favourite. I do also enjoy horror, and other fiction/non fiction as they take my fancy. 
Please feel free to tell me if you have any recommendations for books to read whether they are already out or just about to. Reviews will be published on Twitter and Goodreads. Contact me here on the blog or email me at booksnbanter1@gmail.com 
Many thanks 
for visiting! Angi
