Simon Jenkins, writing in the Sunday Times, about Britain’s latest moves to protect against terrorism describes the country as “not a police state, but a nation with police state tendencies.”
This is the key issue that Kat Polinski has to tackle in The History Book. In one of the latest reviews, Jim Randolph, from the Up Against the Wall magazine, writes.
The London of the novel, where most of the action takes place, isn’t as bleak as modern Iraq, but it is carved up into security zones complete with Draconian checkpoints and surveillance.. This is a fantastically entertaining, complex and well-plotted adventure yarn combining the best of the straight-out revenge tale with frighteningly plausible greed-fueled geopolitical machinations.
