A nation under attack. Treason stalks the corridors of power. Can Harry Hawkins turn the tide?
Harry Hawkins has finally found peace in the bosom of his new family. A loving wife and a new son have given him the contentment he has sought for so long.
But then he wakes up one morning to find chaos spreading through the streets of Britain. From warzone-like football matches to terrorist bombs, from large-scale prison breakouts to inexplicable mass street fighting. With fake news dominating the media and the authorities struggling to connect the dots H realizes that his domestic idyll is over.
He receives information from a security service whistleblower that key players within the British establishment have been corrupted by those behind the chaos, and are involved in supporting their activities and aims – whatever they may be.
As the mounting chaos threatens to pull the country apart H comes to understand that he and his colleagues are in uncharted waters; no one in authority can be trusted and all usual channels of communication are subject to surveillance by Britain’s enemies. Can H, and the off-the-radar people’s army he puts together, identify the source of the chaos, shut down its operations and help restore order before a climactic outrage brings Britain to its knees?
If you like gritty, high-octane novels with terrific twists you’ll love Bloody Liberties – let it take you on a thrilling rollercoaster ride through a contemporary world of violent criminality, technological chaos, political intrigue and everyday heroism.
Roy has worked as a squash coach, a youth worker, a service delivery manager and an IT project manager but has now given up all other work in order to write full time.
He is currently writing the London Large series of novels – which he co-authors with his brother Garry – featuring the exploits of Inspector Harry ‘H’ Hawkins of New Scotland Yard. The novels are set on the unfashionable back streets of south-east London where Roy, his two brothers Garry and Terry, and his sister Yvonne grew up in the 1960s and 70s.
Inspector Hawkins is made up entirely of flaws, knotted together by good intentions and the clear and uncompromising moral certitude of an old school south-east Londoner.
Roy is afraid of people waving guns and of being alone at night. If he was to put himself into one of the London Large novels he would not survive the first chapter.
Roy now lives in Bromley with his wife Pam and his two children, Charlotte and Danielle
