Just came across this new Kiwi thriller this week. It's available online in print and e-book version through Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk etc.
Dennis Bogdanovich buys a glass-bottomed boat in Russia to start a tourist business in New Zealand. His Russian cousin, Sergey, offers to transport it to Amsterdam in his friend Zaheed's truck. Bad idea, as already on board the truck are the essential parts for a bomb designed to paralyse London. The rocket with its lethal payload is fired at London from the Netherland dunes, and Zaheed's truck is discovered to have been the launch vehicle. Dennis's boat is at once promoted to 'getaway vehicle', and Dennis becomes an internationally hunted man.
From what I've managed to find, author Julie Haines has worked at a high school in Auckland, New Zealand, and this is her first book.
