Nanotech entrepreneur Ryan Trishler and retired Soviet general Alexander Volkov come from very different worlds, yet both have survived the toughest of upbringings. And now each man understands something of the nature of military conflict: one using technology to avoid senseless deaths on the battlefield, the other profiting from wartime brutality wherever it happens. When Trishler’s company trials a lifesaving hi tech antennae vest at the Yuma military testing ground in the Arizona desert, Volkov and his associates intervene, causing the violent deaths of innocent bystanders and setting off a chain of increasingly lethal confrontations. As the action moves from the United States to New Zealand to Canada, the deadly manoeuvring pulls in other players: both men’s families, law enforcement officers, senior politicians, lawyers and judges; and eventually the United States President himself. A searing indictment of the international arms trade and the political corruption that feeds it, The Beacon Project is both high-octane thriller and moving family drama, a story that shows the stark choices powerful men make, and the razor-thin line between good and evil.
