A terrorist’s plot, the assassination of a prime minister, holds the key to an apocalyptic plan to destroy Europe’s economy. It’s impossible to stop, but one man doesn’t know enough to think the world can’t be saved. He’s no hero; not clever or capable, talented or tested. The Hollow Man is just trying to survive in an uncertain climate where terrorism is changing the rules of how we live.
The Hollow Man won 2nd place in World’s Best Story Contest.

Let me catch my breath!  This story takes place in the 1970’s where the European economy is under threat from terrorists.  Doc, as the Hollow Man, is an inexperienced, young analyst who is thrust into one dangerous situation after another racing across Europe to eliminate terrorists, using only his wits and his fighting skills to survive.  We don’t know much about him, bits and pieces of his history are revealed as the story progresses.  As our protagonist flees across Europe, the author colourfully weaves interesting details of his trip by train from Madrid, Spain to Paris, France.  His “compadre” Zita, a M16 agent, is one of the few persons he can trust.  We aren’t quite sure when or where she will show up but the chemistry between the two adds an interesting element into the plot.
This was one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a long time, the suspense was nail-biting, and the situations believable.  You could feel Doc’s sweat.  This HAS to be made into a movie and I have a hard time trying to decide who I want in the lead role.
I look forward to reading more of Paul Hollis’ work in the future.
