In 1986 the world's worst ever nuclear disaster unfolded at Chernobyl in the Soviet Republic of Ukraine and 31 people died. The death toll should have been four billion. Now three decades later, hell on earth is about to be unleashed again. From the dusty streets of Baghdad to the high rise metropolis of New York and the deserted wasteland of Pripyat, Ian MacRae, a security consultant based in the idyllic island paradise of Tasmania, is drawn into a desperate race against time to uncover the truth about Chernobyl...and stop the annihilation of the human race.

'The book was a truly great read, really enjoyed it.'

'Just finished "Devil's Breath" a book I couldn't bear to put down. Up there with some of the greats. Well written and easy to read with plenty of surprises and unexpected twists.'

Jon P Wells was born in 1962. Travel and years of life experience demonstrated that the truth is often stranger than fiction, and that there is a mystery everywhere you go and in everyone you meet. The international thriller Devil's Breath, his first novel, races from the desolate radioactive wastelands of Chernobyl to the wealthy suburbs of LA, and questions whether what we are told by the authorities actually reflects what happens when disaster strikes. He lives in a quiet beach town in Tasmania, Australia.
