The Writings of Noel Carroll

An old satellite tumbles back into the atmosphere, a piece of it striking a sailboat whose occupants, a young couple, are forced upon the volcanic wastes of Montserrat, a tiny island in the Lesser Antilles. Hiding on the island are four desperate men awaiting a visit by the Queen of England. Their purpose: to make sure she does not leave alive.



 

Prologue


On the 18th of July, 1995, a wisp of steam lightly dusted with ash trickled upward from the northwest crater of Soufrière Hills, a long-dormant volcano on the tiny Antilles island of Montserrat. Ten days of calm followed, but then additional vents opened, these more energetic in what they tossed into the air: steam and ash as before, but more of it and with greater force. Weeks of earthquakes followed, some of them strong but all of them frightening to the thirteen thousand inhabitants of the island.

Almost a month to the day after it began, a terrifying eruption blanketed the capital city of Plymouth with a thick cloud of ash¾ for fifteen suffocating minutes, there was no sun. The residents of Plymouth became instant believers, and the evacuation of the bottom half of Montserrat, soon to be called The Exclusion Zone, began. The volcano had officially awakened.

Excerpt
Jim could no longer pretend. “Girl, you got a nice tan going there. Sailing naked agrees with you.” She showed no tanning lines, nothing to interrupt that beautiful reddish-brown skin.


Professional Reviews

Michael L. Thal, eBooksNBytes
The writing team of Noel Carroll knit these characters and scenarios expertly together into a woven tapestry of an international political thriller. .....The Exclusion Zone is a fast paced thriller with a mesmerizing arc. The plot is fluid, and the scene settings are cinemascopic.

Anyone drawn into the political maelstrom of today’s war on terrorism will be riveted to The Exclusion Zone.
