Product description

Review

Explosive Expose. A no-holds barred expose of dirty tricks in the Tory party, set against a background of violent Islamist jihad and major social change in contemporary Britain. With her personal experience of political campaigning and her involvement in an anti-bullying and other mental health charities, Burfitt-Dons writes with knowledge and conviction.
A fast-paced, racy thriller which keeps up the suspense until the final denouement, this is far more than just a page-turner: it is a warning to all of us about just what is at stake, politically, economically and socially, in Brexit Britain. Amazon

********

...This book is stunningly different from many thrillers I've read recently. There are several murders and a big finish. But using examples like the Kurdaitcha practices in aboriginal culture and other research into group behaviour, it is also a compassionate tale which grips to the very end.
There are some truly original great characters in this book. Haruto, the half Scottish half Japanese love interest of Karen Andersen, Bea Harrison who trains women wannabe politicians and turns a blind eye to her husband's shortcomings, the long-winded Quacker, the runaway Filipino maids, the charismatic Zinah Al-Rashid who once worked in Harrods, Robin Miller the star-struck twenty one year old with a heart of gold who is wedded to the party which shafts him, Tammy Kell, the cool as ice female Tory candidate, and Andersen herself, the highly sensitive off the wall private investigator who is fighting her own demons with a second-hand foil off the internet. ......

About the Author

British author and screenwriter Louise Burfitt-Dons works with production companies on both sides of the Atlantic. Readers and critics have described her contemporary novel, The Killing of the Cherrywood MP, as ‘thriller excellence’ and ‘brilliant’. New Century publishes her forthcoming book The Secret War in June 2021. Louise is the author of the Karen Andersen Thrillers, a series of contemporary conspiracy adventure novels beginning with The Missing Activist. Think tank and website The Conservative Woman described it as ‘an authentic and gripping political thriller’ and the novel became an Amazon kindle bestseller. Her fictional creation Karen Andersen dubbed ‘one of the most loveable and relatable female protagonists of the female led genre’, and ‘a British Lisbeth Salander’. Louise is a well-known anti-bullying campaigner and speaker. She set up children’s charity Act Against Bullying in 2000 and co-founded the November 13 annual Kindness Day UK. She stood for Nottingham North in the General Election 2015 for the conservative party. She was born in Kuwait, which has shaped her to write about conflicting cultures. Louise has travelled extensively with her ex-pilot husband and has also lived in Australia and France, which has inspired the locations found in her international thrillers. Today, home is Chiswick in west London. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
