Rage Against Jihad synopsis:

This is a work of fiction and can best be described as a politically tinged thriller. In 2009, the wife, daughter, son and five grandchildren of the central character, Jamie, are killed in a nuclear bomb [dirty bomb] detonated by terrorists in Chicago, Illinois. Jamie is 65 and, very quietly, one of the wealthiest men in the world. He made his wealth as a computer scientist and owns many companies providing computer security services to governments and businesses all over the world. One of his companies provides computer security services to the House of Saud and to many members of the House of bin Laden. Jamie has managed to become very rich without coming to the attention of the media. He is, as far as the world is concerned, a nonentity.

This novel is about Jamie and his family and how he came to be in a position to find and punish those he believes responsible for the murders of his family. The story of his life and how and against whom he takes his revenge ranges from a college town in the Midwestern US in the 1940’s, to Graceland subdivision in Memphis in the 1950’s, Vietnam in 1966, Memphis in 1968, radical student politics and the sanitation workers’ strike which brought Martin Luther King to his death on 4 April 1968, New York City in 1969, England in 1970 and in the dramatic conclusion, Saudi Arabia, England, the Philippines and Australia.
