Thriller Terrorism | Suspense
American expat Kate Moore drops her kids at the
international school, makes her shopping rounds, and
meets her husband Dexter at their regular cafĂ©: a
leisurely start to a normal day, St-Germain-des-PrĂ©s.
Across the Seine, tech CEO Hunter Forsyth stands on his
balcony, perplexed that his police escort just departed,
and frustrated that his cell service has cut out; Hunter
has important calls to make, not all of them technically
And on the nearby rue de Rivoli, Mahmoud Khalid climbs
out of an electricianâ€™s van, and elbows his way into the
crowded courtyard of the worldâ€™s largest museum, in the
epicenter of Western civilization. He sets down his metal
briefcase, and removes his windbreaker.
Thatâ€™s when people start to scream.
Everyone has big plans for the day. Dexter is going to
make a small fortune, finally digging himself out of a
deep financial hole, via an extremely risky investment.
Hunter is going to make a huge fortune, with a major
corporate acquisition that will send his companyâ€™s stock
soaring. Kate has less ambitious plans: preparations for
tonightâ€™s dinner partyâ€”one of those homemaker obligations
she still hasnâ€™t embraced, even after a half-decade of
this lifeâ€”and an uneventful workday at the Paris
Substation, the clandestine cadre of operatives that
sheâ€™s been running, not entirely successfully,
increasingly convinced that every day could be the last
of her career. But every day is also a fresh chance to
prove her own relevance, never more so than during
todayâ€™s momentous events.
And Mahmoud? He is planning to die today. And he wonâ€™t be
the only one.
