(Future of London Series #1)
The Revolution will be Televised, Retweeted and Liked.
The London riots – coordinated by technology and social media – have brought the city to its knees.
Historic buildings have been burned to the ground. Shops are looted, businesses and homes destroyed at random.
The politicians try to resolve the crisis, but the Houses of Parliament are no longer a match for the influence of the Internet, where two alternative leaders have emerged in an online battle for the future soul of London.
Chester George – a masked man whose real identity is unknown, uses YouTube, punk rock and fierce intellect to spread the anarchy.
Sadie Hobbs – reality TV star and blogger. Loathed and controversial, she urges ‘normal’ society to fight back against Chester George and the ‘feral rats’ destroying the city.
The fate of London hangs in the balance. And when the day of reckoning comes, hundreds of thousands of people – including sixteen-year-old Mack Walker – will descend upon the city for the final showdown – and a day that London will never forget.
What If John Lennon Had Lived?
‘FAB’ is a fast-paced, rip-roaring ride through the 1980s – a decade in which greed was good and shoulder pads made sense. It was an era of uncertainty – of Cold War and nuclear weapons. ‘FAB’ also pokes fun at our obsession with celebrity, whilst fondly recalling some of the unique fashions and pop culture moments that made the 1980s so unforgettable.’
‘FAB is a creative, well written novel that takes a political speculation and makes an immensely clever puzzle out of it…the suspense is carefully built up until the final, startling climax.’ – Indie Reader
