Author Greg Ruckas thriller novel, A Gentlemans Game (Bantam), which was published last October, opens with a series of explosions, set by terrorists, in high traffic subway stations around London.
Rucka says, Its alarming to see how close we got to it.
Even more alarming, he says, is that he pinpointed in his book that the terrorists were Pakistani.
And already there are similarities brewing in Ruckas upcoming book, Private Wars, due out this October. It deals with terrorists from Uzbekistan, and as Rucka says, After the manuscript went to bed, Uzbekistan was in the news.
Rucka dismisses the idea that his or other authors books are used as a blueprint for terrorism.
He sums it up saying, We want to believe theyre not terribly bright, but thats a big mistake on our part.
