Today, the second book in the series and I am delighted to be helping to publicise it on it’s launch day! I am actually in the middle of reading the first book – I was meant to publish a review for this back in September but unfortunately life took an ugly turn and I wasn’t able to get it up on time. I will be posting the review as soon as I have finished (I had hoped I could do both today but alas, life is a fickle, evil mistress!).
Jennifer Sinclair’s fight to save her political career, her family and her freedom has failed. Traumatised by prison violence, she agrees to transfer to the mysterious British Values Centre.
Rita Gurumurthy has betrayed her country and failed the children in her care. Unlike Jennifer, she has no choice, but finds herself in the centre against her will.
Both women are expected to conform, to prove their loyalty to the state and to betray everything they hold dear. One attempts to comply, while the other rebels. Will either succeed in regaining her freedom?
Divide and Rule is 1984 for the 21st century – a chilling thriller examining the ruthless measures the state will take to ensure obedience, and the impact on two women.
About the Author:
I’m Rachel McLean and I write thrillers and speculative fiction.
I’m told that the world wants upbeat, cheerful stories – well, I’m sorry but I can’t help. My stories have an uncanny habit of predicting future events (and not the good ones). They’re inspired by my work at the Environment Agency and the Labour Party and explore issues like climate change, Islamophobia, the refugee crisis and sexism in high places.
All with a focus on how these impact individual people and families.
