In 2038 the kingdom is no longer united. The government rules from York after Southern England was lost to anarchy twenty years previously.
Chief Whip Oliver Trench is trying to keep his government from falling apart, uncovering a corporate plot looking to usurp the Prime Minister, one which will test his loyalties between his friend, the PM and his country.
Strategist Evan Bell has an opportunity to unite the kingdom. But when a Red Cross transport is shot down it ignites hostilities between the city’s gangs. His mission doomed, Evan finds hope in an unlikely ally; Bo, a 13 year old assassin.
Evan and Oliver must navigate the war torn streets of London, the unravelling of Britain’s government and a shadowy corporation’s play for dominance. The odds are against them, but in London a child is about to make a difference.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Techno-savvy, political SF thriller Running with an interesting technological concept, this books makes it central, depended upon and needed by characters but also a limitation and liability as demonstrated with a young all-human killing machine who tips the scales in this battle for supremacy in England, fighting for the no-man's-land once called London and its future. Full of action and intrigue, there were many thoughtful moments and memorable characters, even if many were morally ambiguous. It's a tough, hard-hitting tale that pulls no punches and still delivers a solid ending if not the final answer to the problem.
