Newgate's Knocker is a fictional story, however, the highly sophisticated wave pulse generator described in the book is, in fact, based on tested technology. Should such a device become viable and available to terrorist organizations, then Newgate's Knocker could prove prophetic.


The author does an incredible job of telling three concurrent stories.
...witty dialogue between well-drawn and believable characters; and the enticing elements of intrigue and romance running throughout the course of the work, make Newgate'sKnocker a fine story; and one perfectly suited for the big screen.
