Real. Invisible.

And it’s taking New York by storm.

With its insatiable hunger for fast food, easy fixes and life lived at breakneck speed, the city that never sleeps is hurtling towards disaster. Now John Wyse, an ordinary New York cop, looks set to be the only person who can thwart catastrophe on an apocalyptic scale . . .

New York City is under attack. Millions may die. But the enemy’s weapons are invisible, undetectable and creating terror at lightning speed. Now, there’s nothing to stand in their way . . .

  • A Hiroshima survivor turned criminal mastermind 
  • A pharma industry riddled with corruption 
  • A Libyan entrepreneur coerced by threats to his family 
  • A New York cop falling fast for an elusive beauty 
  • A visitor to Tokyo from the mountains of Afghanistan

One terrible desire for revenge connects them all. With the clock ticking on an audacious, devastating plot to bring America to its knees, can anyone save New York from catastrophe?

Paul McNeive lost his legs in a fire aged twenty, and this life-changing experience and what happened to him on his road to recovery inform his debut novel, The Manhattan Project. In a highly successful career, Paul was the managing director of Savills, Ireland, and is now an international motivational speaker, a columnist for the Irish Independent, was the world’s first double amputee helicopter pilot and is an ambassador for the Douglas Bader Foundation. He is also on the board of Ireland’s National Rehabilitation Hospital.


‘Paul McNeive takes a very real worldwide medical problem and turns it into a disturbingly plausible thriller that builds to an edge-of-your-seat climax. Altogether a compelling read!’
– Robert Goddard, author of The Wide World trilogy

‘With an extraordinary, original and well-researched plot, contemporary themes, action, twists and turns, The Manhattan Project has all the ingredients of an international bestseller.’
– Glenn Meade, New York Times bestselling author of The Romanov Conspiracy

‘With a plot as fast-paced as the writing – bioterrorism meets big pharma – and a storyline stretching from Japan through the Middle East to the USA, The Manhattan Project is a cracking debut thriller. Guaranteed to be read in an all-night sitting!’
– Paul Carson, author of Inquest

The Manhattan Project, a brilliant debut novel, starts as a slow-burn and quickly ignites into a fast-paced biological disaster facing the citizens of New York.’
– John McAllister, author of The Station Sergeant trilogy

‘For anyone who likes their books big, blistering and utterly compulsive, this is the read for you. It is explosive, addictive and ultimately very satisfying. There’s a new boy in town – at last an heir to Tom Clancy.’ Doreen Finn, author of My Buried Life
