June 29, 2011 - PRLog -- We’ve all heard about the Yemen riots in the news, but what is it really like there? James Marinero’s new thriller is not a Yemen book for travellers, but much of the action is set there – in the capital city, Sana’a, and in the former British Protectorate of Aden.

Bang up to the minute, his latest novel ‘Gate of Tears’ reflects very recent damaging changes in Britain’s defence strategy, regime change in North Africa and the Middle East, and the rapidly increasing influence of China – its industry, naval power and intelligence gathering. ‘Gate of Tears’ projects naval and aerial technology, and developments in genetics, into the next decade, with a plot to destabilise the international gold market at its core.

About the Author

From milkman to author, the UK to Russia, James Marinero has great stories to tell, and his background equips him to write thrillers with an international context and technical soothsaying.

Born in South Wales he has lived in Hampshire for 12 years, and now lives on the South Coast. He was a milkman for many years, but with a degree in Physics, and a master’s degree in Oceanography. He opened one of the very first retail computer stores in the UK, way back in 1980, and moved into IT full-time.

He gained an MBA, then, as an IT project manager, he worked in many industries and many countries – in Moscow and other cities on a project involving the auction/privatisation of Russian industry, in Kazakhstan, the Middle East, Scandinavia, Europe and the US.

The sea has been in his blood since he was nine years old, and he has now achieved a lifetime ambition to live on his boat and write novels. He sails his boat regularly from the South Coast to Spain, Portugal, Africa and beyond, and has ventured as far as Brazil. Currently, he is in the Mediterranean completing research for his next novel.
