The truth can be a deadly weapon … An incendiary political thriller set in the dog-eat-dog world of tabloid journalism.
Journalist Jonno Bligh is headhunted to London by Russian media mogul Borya Bolshakov to be editor of his flagship tabloid UK Today.
When Jonno and ace reporter Shiv O’Shea investigate the murders of a high-profile activist and a princess by jihadi terrorists, Jonno is threatened with deadly reprisals after a controversial editorial.
Then he uncovers Bolshakov’s shady links to a plot to rid Russia of crippling sanctions – and the billionaire’s plan to use UK Today as a mouthpiece.
When Jonno uncovers a murderous conspiracy reaching into the very heart of Downing Street and democracy itself, he must decide whether to risk everything -- his reputation, his family, his life – by publishing the truth.
