About the Book
16 million dead. Two struggling survivors. A past no-one can escape.
Set in a Britain of the near future, haunted by its past in which the traces of genocide lay just below the surface, two survivors, Thea and Dom, are on a journey to uncover the truth behind an illegal adoption ring and to find a missing baby. Their search for the truth puts both of their lives in danger and uncovers that new Free and Equal Britain is not just a memory.
As Dom and Thea’s paths collide, they unearth not only adoption crimes on an industrial scale, but links to fugitive FEB-era politicians that both Dom and Thea still have deeply personal reasons to resent — and fear. Will Dom discover the truth about the child he hoped would rebuild his family? Will Thea find her daughter? Will the past continue to block their way?
