Saturday, February 15, 2003. Henry Perowne, a successful neurosurgeon, stands at his bedroom window before dawn and watches a plane - ablaze with fire like a meteor - arcing across the London sky. Over the course of the following day, unease gathers about Perowne, as he moves amongst thousands of anti-war protestors in the post-9/11 streets.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

This novel is set within a single day in February 2003. Henry Perowne is a successful neurosurgeon living in the gathering pessimism of the looming war with Iraq. A minor accident in his car brings him into a confrontation with a small-time thug, of whom Perowne can see something is profoundly wrong. When the man visits Perowne's home that evening, the savage consequences lead Perowne to deploy all his skills to keep this doomed figure alive. Huge promotion and media coverage. "He is this country's unrivalled literary giant" }Independent On Sunday{
