Great Britain is on the verge of social collapse. After eight years of disastrous rule under the Labour Government, the country is ready for change. The far right administration of Lawrence Pelham is swept to power on a tide of hope and expectation that his Party can rejuvenate Britain. But Pelham's remedies are radical and things are about to get worse. Much worse. When disgraced former political correspondent Harry Clarke acquires a disc containing the Government's five year plan, he realizes that the content is so explosive the Government will stop at nothing to prevent the revelations of what his old adversary Pelham really intends for the nation. Framed for the high profile murder of a former Cabinet Minister, and his family sent to a deportation camp, he is ruthlessly hunted and then abducted into a combative resistance cell led by Julianne, his former lover. He finds himself part of an audacious plot to overthrow the dictatorial regime, but Pelham is willing to go to any lengths to consolidate his power. In this intriguing thriller set in a dystopian U.K. of the near future, the author creates an atmospheric and plausible portrayal of a nation on the brink. This compelling novel considers how circumstances can align to create conditions that give rise to a right wing dictatorship headed by a charismatic, powerful and genocidal leader prepared to sacrifice millions of innocent people to suit his own twisted vision for the nation.
