Apart from the noise and the gut-wrenching fear of physical injury, the most terrifying thing about an explosion is the millisecond in which the whole world fractures. It’s as though the very fabric of time and space has been split asunder, and you’re falling through it with no idea what lies on the other side.
When Colonel Bismarck came to, he was spreadeagled on a marble floor. For a moment he was unable to move, as if his body forbade it. As if it knew better than he did.
Although there was utter silence, the Colonel didn’t question it. He felt no alarm, no urgency. He was staring up at the shattered ceiling where snowy chunks of plaster rocked gently.
He became captivated by their movement – backwards and forwards, forwards and backwards – as if they were caught in a breeze. He was even more bewitched by the spectacle as some of the pieces broke loose, falling in slow motion to the floor around him.
His hearing began to return.
About the book
BOOK FIVE IN THE HUGELY SUCCESSFUL TUNNELS SERIES BY RODERICK GORDON AND CO-AUTHOR BRIAN WILLIAMS.
The Styx have surfaced. If you thought the Limiters were nasty, think again. They’ve brought their females with them this time. And all that stands in their way are Will and his friends, and a rag-bag team of retired commandos.
It’s a smoking spiral of chaos, and not everyone will survive.
“Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams are gaining a bit of a reputation for dropping staggering bombshells of shock and surprise, and SPIRAL may be the mother lode.”
