Under Fire, thriller by Rachel Amphlett

An explosion rocks a Qatari natural gas facility… a luxury cruise liner capsizes in the Mediterranean… and someone has stolen a submarine…  Dan Taylor doesn't believe in coincidences – all he has to do now is convince his superiors that they're next in the terrorists' line of fire.

Rachel Amphlett releases her new thriller, "Under Fire" in August 2013 and it promises to be another adrenaline-fueled read from the Brisbane, Australia based author.

 As Britain enters its worst winter on record, Dan must elude capture to ensure the country's energy resources are protected. At all costs. In an action-packed adventure, from the Middle East through the Mediterranean to London, Dan and his team are on a quest that will test every choice he makes. Assisted by the exotic Antonia Almasi, Dan realises he faces an adversary far greater than he ever imagined. And not everyone is going to survive.

 "Under Fire" will be released as both an eBook and paperback format and available for purchase through online retailers from 14 August 2013. Bookstores can order through their usual wholesale distributors.

 "The best part about writing action thrillers is the research," says Rachel. "I've had to investigate everything from liquid natural gas production through to anti-submarine warfare – including being in a submarine, just to make sure the reader feels like they're totally involved in the story."

Rachel Amphlett's debut novel "White Gold" unleashed a techno-thriller with an environmental twist. Extensive research on the world's current affairs, socio-political climate, and the ongoing struggle to meet the world's energy needs resulted in a novel described as "fast-paced, non-stop action", and "a slick environmental thriller that ticks all the boxes" with favourable comparisons to both Andy McNab and Matthew Reilly.

"The success of "White Gold" really gave me the confidence to keep writing," says Rachel. "I can't imagine not writing now!"
