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