The Dividing Lines

By Kirk Houghton

Thriller, General fiction | eBook


The lives of three people are changed forever when disgraced Labour MP, Richard Farnworth, is forced to resign his seat. Disillusioned salesman Martin Reeves is already descending into a world of extreme violence and sexual frustration; conspiracy-theorist Ed Blevins is struggling to cope in the aftermath of his mother’s death; and Muslim convert Miranda Yilmaz is torn between her ambitions for high office and the demands of her imperfect family life. But the stakes are high and tolerance levels low in this By-Election, and political violence lurks uneasily in the background. The question is, did Farnworth leave his successors a legacy of true power; or was he a pawn in a wider scandal?
