An oil-rich country.
A deadline to die for
Trapped behind barbed wire in an alien land, a man used to guarding his secrets is compelled to set the record straight. Imagine a country that was once a friend of the West becoming an enemy, its people isolated and savagely repressed by a tyrant known as The Great Uncle.
A celebrated writer and war hero has a better life than most until he is made an offer he can't refuse. He must write a great novel, portraying the tyrant as the people's saviour. This masterpiece must be completed in time for its international debut - or the writer and anyone he cares about will pay the ultimate price.
Stark, terrifying and utterly compelling, THE TYRANT'S NOVEL is a chilling glimpse of a fictional world that seems all too real.
