Overview

Jane Collins was a confident intelligent English Teacher - until she was attacked as a warning. Her husband Matt was a dynamic media communications consultant for an international public relations agency - until the pressures piled up. Although they loved each other, she couldn't tell him about her ordeal. And he couldn't tell her about secret projects for companies and governments. They suffered in silence.

Matt's boss, the PR agency's head of issue management, Peter Jones, is hired by big companies and repressive regimes to hide their terrible deeds. Together they help a giant US chemical company seek EU approval for a food preserving process - despite 22XP's link with cancer. Ignoring threats, they also help the President of the New Soviet Government cover-up "ethnic cleansing" of around half a million Muslims in Chechnya.

In Silent Suffering we experience the inside of corporate corruption, state deception, mysterious murder and heart-wrenching love. We witness the lives of ordinary people turned into turmoil by global politics and multi-million dollar insider share dealing.

Former journalist Steve Ellis writes with real insight into the hidden world of corporate culture, political intrigue and public relations "spin". His understanding of psychological trauma is intriguing - and disturbing.
