North Of Heaven is a thriller novel by author Frank Edwards. The fascinating central character of the plot is Norton Laird (or ‘North’ as he’s usually known) who resides in his church as Father to his congregation. Now happily married to the woman he always dreamed of, North has left behind his time with Australian Special Forces, though he still maintains a small role in the Intelligence Division. It is only when North’s life is brutally ripped apart that church and state collide, pushing him back into the high-octane lifestyle he’s trying to avoid. Here he meets a classic mysterious adversary known as Apollo, and the themes of science and technology clash with tradition and morality as the plot takes off into a thrilling chase of high adventure.

So many action thriller novels of this ilk place the USA at the centre of the universe, so I was thrilled to see such a global feel to this novel and a delightfully quirky Aussie personality in its hero. Frank Edwards writes with an attention to detail that fans of the likes of Andy McNab and Dan Brown will find impressive, and his combination of religious, moral themes and gritty urban action makes for a truly unique read. North Of Heaven is a lengthy, complex read which does require concentration to fully enjoy, but the narrative rewards its readers with a truly surprising ending that’ll give you pause for thought. Overall, I’d highly recommend North Of Heaven to action fans who want something new, exciting and insightful.
