Permanently removing The PM is the only way
This was the conclusion drawn by a band of conspirators intent on reversing what they saw to be the devastating result of the Brexit Referendum. With the Middle Eastern Trade Agreement being signed that night the time for decisive action had arrived. The plan had been calculated with military precision and when its leader declared “we go tonight” the accomplices were prepared to activate the Gloriana paper and to wrestle back the United Kingdom’s place in the European Union by assassinating The Prime Minister.
Well what a compelling read. Set against the backdrop of Brexit and also utilising the idea of a coup d'etat. This novella gives us an insight into what could have happened with the polarised views surrounding the EU exit/remain strategy. Very well written and engaging work of fiction which is grounded in reality. Cannot wait to read the follow up works by this man. Oliver Richbell is one to watch for the future.
This novella is a brilliant first book by new author Oliver Richbell. Inspired by the film Valkyrie, it is about a plot to assassinate the British Prime Minister. Will it succeed? Read it and find out, it is well worth it. It gains a quick pace up to the explosion, and Gloriana is implemented. and there are many twists and turns before you find out the answer. I particularly liked the way the conspirators were introduced at the start of the book, this made it a very easy book to read. The characterisation was good too. A great holiday or commuter read.
As a very rare reader of fiction (more autobiographies) I found this novel to be excellent and of an ideal length. I liked the fact that there was no waffle / padding and we were introduced to the characters and plot line early on. Would highly recommend anyone to read it.
