The Cell Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Cell

The Cell in the title of this book refers to a cell or group of Al-Qa'eda terrorists planning an attack in England which will be more horrific that the September 11 incident in New York. Colin Forbes keeps the action coming in this latest adventure featuring Tweed and his team of SIS agents. There are three missing persons in the first few chapters all with information about the group or their leader. The suspects are mostly from the same small village which has been built by the unknown terrorist leader. The properties are all rented and the rent money has a long trail before it can be attached to the financing of the terrorist plot. Tweed knows he has only a few days in which to discover the target and the mastermind.
