London, a few years from now. The Russian government has set up and secretly controls the new populist political party that governs Britain.
Duncan Jones, freelance political journalist and blogger, loses his weekly column at a national newspaper and turns to investigative reporting. As he visits Moscow and Ukraine to discover more about the politicians who now govern Britain, scandal follows intrigue, dark forces attempt to silence him by whatever means possible and he turns to an unlikely ally for help.
A Friend in Deed is a slick and intelligent psychological thriller set in an all-too-believable near future. It is also a story about how one man confronts the traumas in his past and works out how to resolve them.
Readers will find themselves hooked within the first few pages. And with the added element of danger that Harper brings to the narrative, the novel is completely engrossing. Every chapter descends further down the rabbit hole of investigative journalism, leaving Duncan torn between what is right and staying safe.'
