www.wrington.net Adrian Dore has lived in Wrington since 2002. He was  born in South Africa and lived there most of his life. He immigrated to the UK eight years ago with his family  and settled here, where most of his wife’s family now  lives. Adrian has been involved in business all his working  life and has run his own businesses as well as having  worked for major corporations, gaining wide exposure  and experience across many disciplines. While in the UK he completed extensive research into  new business measurement and management  models, which provided the kernel of an idea for his  book, A Silent War,  the first in the Silent War trilogy. Having written technical books and manuscripts, this is Adrian’s first venture into the world of fiction, which he  thoroughly enjoys. He tries to write at two levels. The first is to provide an exciting, enjoyable and easy  read, at the same time provoking thought on some of  the big issues facing contemporary society. In his Silent War trilogy, he has taken highly topical  subjects such as our fragile economy and environment, together with some of our major social conditions and  explored their weaknesses, showing how they can be  manipulated to our disadvantage, in his exciting, page  turning series. Apart from writing, Adrian loves computer programming, oil painting and the beautiful English countryside. He is married to Paula and has two sons, Jonathan and Jeremy. Adrian’s publisher, Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie describe A Silent War as “a superb story of suspense on a grand scale – a tense, diplomatic and dark thriller where we are brought to the brink of defeat in World War III without knowing we are at war, or who our enemy is. This may sound highly implausible and far fetched, but it is neither of these things. This is what makes it such an exciting and compelling read. The author has crafted a balance between fact and fiction that leaves you wanting to turn the page. The book is highly topical as it shows how international stock markets are manipulated by antagonists on a frightening scale, which make our current financial crisis look nothing more than a small glitch. These events are intertwined with international terrorist activities and organised crime, so the scale of the problem, and the intrigue, is magnified tenfold. However, into this melting pot a new dynamic is added – the corrupting influence of social and business networks, infiltrated by crime syndicates. “Easy money and influence” is the new “drug” being peddled among the networks, with the potential to completely debilitate governments. Do not think it is impossible, or implausible, that we can be brought to the brink of defeat in World War III without knowing we are at war or who our enemy is. Do not think it is impossible for us to lose our democracies without firing a single shot in their defence. Do not think that the horrors of Nazism and Communism, or similar totalitarian regimes, have been relegated to our distant past. Having read this highly topical and plausible story, you will know differently. This is an exciting, thought provoking book, which will keep you on the edge as the plot unfolds, twisting and turning, keeping you guessing, not knowing who, or what to believe, and unable to predict the outcome until the very last page. It’s a clever and intriguing book, and a must read for everybody.” The book is available as a paperback from all leading book retailers. However, it can also be purchased from most on-line book retailers.
