PRLog - Oct. 29, 2012 - The eagerly-awaited release of DC Alden’s second novel, The Horse at the Gates (Tyler Press) looks set to become a bestseller in its genre. A fast paced, multi-layered plot grounded in the reality of today’s headlines, the novel reveals how seemingly benign forces are capable of sudden domination, and how violent events can change political landscapes overnight, a reality witnessed across the Arab world this year. Frighteningly prescient, The Horse at the Gates is at the forefront of a new era of international action-thrillers.

The Horse at the Gates
Whitehall is in ruins, Britain’s most significant mosque destroyed, the country adrift on a tide of political turmoil. As war rumbles on in the east, millions of refugees head west, desperately seeking the safety of Europe’s borders. The conspiracy to change the course of European history has begun.
At the heart of that conspiracy are three men, each divided from the other by birthright and status, all of them integral to the success of an operation that has been meticulously planned and ruthlessly executed.
Yet before the gates of Europe can be thrown open, before the maps of the continent can be redrawn, two of them must be removed from the field of play.
