Críticas:

few books have made my heart race and blood pressure soar like this one... it had me on the edge of my seat. (Alex Gordon Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

a terrific thriller... the thriller of the summer. It should be thebnbovel that airport booksellers can't get enough of. (Ben Hunt MaterialWitness.com)

Alex Scarrow's depiction of Britain as only a few hours away from disintegration is chillingly plausible. This is the perfect book to give to somebody who opposes your plans to build a wind farm. (Daily Telegraph)

Scarrow keeps his foot on the acceleratorin this apocalyptic thriller, which is reminiscent of Frederick Forsyth and john Wyndham (Mike Ripley Birmingham Post)

...Last Light is sensational. (London Lite)

This has everything, from conspiracy theories to highlighting environmental issues facing the world today ¿ Scarrow made my head zing (THE TRUTH ABOUT BOOKS)

Reseña del editor:

After several years of research into an issue that affects us all, Alex Scarrow has written a chilling thriller that depicts in a harrowingly convincing way just how fragile our society really is, and how we are only a hair's breadth away from its collapse.

It begins on a very normal Monday morning. But in the space of only a few days, the world's oil supplies have been severed and at a horrifying pace things begin to unravel everywhere. And this is no natural disaster: someone is behind this.

Oil engineer Andy Sutherland is stranded in Iraq with a company of British soldiers, desperate to find a way home to his family, trapped as transport links and the very infrastructure of daily life begins to collapse around him. Back in Britain, his wife Jenny is stuck in Manchester, fighting desperately against the rising chaos to get back to London, where their children are marooned as events begin to spiral out of control; riots, raging fires, looting, rape and murder. In the space of a week, London is transformed into a lawless and anarchic vision of Hell.

And against all this, a mysterious man is tracking Andy's family. He'll silence anyone who might be able to reveal the identities of those behind this global disaster. It seems that the same people who now have a stranglehold on the future of civilization have flexed their muscles before, at other significant tipping points in history, and they are prepared to do anything to keep their secret - and their power - safe.

A knuckle-whitening look at what our future could hold, LAST LIGHT is terrifying, compelling, and above all, convincing.
