April 1972. Britain has been ruled for the last 30 years by the British Union of Fascists, but cracks are starting to form. The Blackshirts have taken their power too far and the people don’t feel safe in their own streets and pubs. But opponents of the Regime have been plotting for a very long time and are now on the brink of taking action.
Andy Deegan is an investigative journalist who won’t tow the line, join the party or follow orders to leave juicy stories alone. He receives a brown envelope, containing nothing but the photos of four men who desperately need his help. As he follows the trail, the authorities do everything they can to frighten him off, but Andy is not the sort of man to let violent threats stop him. The closer he gets to the truth, the more dangerous it becomes, but it’s too important to give up.
The trail leads him right to the heart of the pillars of power – the Party and the Royal Family – but The Leader will do anything to silence Andy, for he cannot be allowed to uncover a secret that could oust fascism in Britain for good.
