Paul to sign copies of ‘The Man­hat­tan Project’ at Dubray

Bray People - - NEWS -

BRAY man Paul McNeive is cel­e­brat­ing the pub­li­ca­tion of his new novel ‘ The Man­hat­tan Project’ in Ire­land and the UK this week.

The thriller is about one man’s race against time to pre­vent a bio-ter­ror­ism at­tack on an apoc­a­lyp­tic scale in New York. NYPD cop John Wise finds him­self pit­ted against a Hiroshima sur­vivor turned crim­i­nal mas­ter­mind de­ter­mined to avenge the deaths of his fam­ily. It’s a race against time to break the links in a ter­ri­ble plot in­tent on caus­ing med­i­cal melt­down. The au­thor, who made a great re­cov­ery from los­ing his legs in a fire, told the Bray Peo­ple that the plot deals with the grow­ing threat of an­tibi­otic re­sis­tant in­fec­tions, which he learned about through di­rect ex­pe­ri­ence.

Fic­tion writ­ing is just one of the many strings to Paul’s bow. He is a mo­ti­va­tional speaker, non-fic­tion writer, Bono im­per­son­ator, for­mer es­tate agent, en­tre­pre­neur, singer-song­writer and the world’s first dou­ble am­putee he­li­copter pi­lot.

His ac­ci­dent in 1982 and sub­se­quent re­cov­ery have been a source of great strength and in­spi­ra­tion for him and oth­ers over the past quar­ter-cen­tury or so. Paul is an am­bas­sodor for the Dou­glas Bader Foun­da­tion and on the board of Ire­land’s Na­tional Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Hospi­tal.

‘ The Man­hat­tan Project’ has been sell­ing well on the in­ter­na­tional markets and trans­la­tion rights have al­ready been sold to sev­eral coun­tries, in­clud­ing Ger­many. Paul will be sign­ing copies of his book at Dubray Book­shop, Bray, at noon on Satur­day, May 19.
