Product description

Product Description

‘You’ve got to stop using the phone,’ she said.

‘Sorry. Last time. I need to get in touch with our friend. Can you pass a message?’

‘I’m going to London with her tonight.’

‘What? Why?’

‘I’m going to show her where I think it is,’ she hissed.

It’s 1983, and Culture Club are in the charts. Somewhere beneath London, an unnamed government department is beginning to use a computer database to keep tabs on domestic extremists.

Near Geneva, work has started on the 27 kilometre tunnel which will eventually house the Large Hadron Collider. Protesters against Cruise and Polaris missiles are mobilising around Europe. As NATO undertakes a military exercise, Soviet Nuclear weapons are pointed at the West.

Meanwhile, a young woman who doesn’t belong is trying to help her father prevent climate catastrophe.

Ronnie Collins tries to fly under the radar. All he wants from his job is a payslip at the end of the month and no hassle. He has enough trouble trying to sort out his sort-of relationship with his sort-of girlfriend without worrying about the mysterious and attractive person across the street and what she’s up to.

When his worlds collide, events take a surprising turn: and he discovers a strange connection 30 years later that turns his life inside out again.
