Operation Rhombus

by John Duggan

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

A cunning suspense novel, OPERATION RHOMBUS spans almost three decades and tells the story of a determined attempt to bring down the British establishment. Princess Diana is identified as the possible catalyst. OPERATION RHOMBUS focuses on the men who would dare risk such an attempt, their perceived transgressions and the men with the skills to carry it out. Interspersing characters real and imagined, mixing theory and fact, describing methods in authentic detail and blurring all lines of plausibility, just who is JD? And who are the men behind him?


Having been given very few details Karl Steiner is tasked with a mission to foil a plot to assassinate Diana Princess of Wales. His employer, Sir Gerald Ainsley, suspects who the instigators are and discovers, that Diana is simply a convenient pawn being used in an exceptionally long game to challenge the British Establishment. With his meticulous skill and knowledge Steiner spends a year preparing for a premeditated attempt planned for 1995, but where he initially succeeds, conflicting forces thwart his efforts and a further attempt is realised in 1997. The answers as to who, why and how, unfold in this complex and detailed story of those who operate in the shadows of the world.

About the author

John Duggan is a pseudonym. As a teenager in the 1970s, with no military experience, he left England to serve as a mercenary in Africa where he was trained by some of the toughest old school mercenaries. He quickly gained an excellent reputation amongst his peers and his services have been in demand ever since. He has served in war zones on four continents on various operations as well as serving with the British army. A natural cynic with a sense of adventure he left the mercenary scene in 2009 and after travelling around the world he is now quietly "growing vegetables" in Europe. He wrote Operation Rhombus some years ago but has only now been persuaded to publish it. Some people hope he may be tempted to write further novels.......more hope he won't.
