‘A timely premise with plenty of plot twists … a fascinating read’
Newly released from hospital after a serious car accident, writer and executive Tom Anthony finds himself caught up in a mysterious and increasingly dangerous struggle for hearts and minds. And as this timely romantic thriller progresses, he starts to question everything about his life – his girlfriend’s loyalty, his neighbour’s motives, and his own beliefs and aspirations.
Tom simply wants to rejoin his former existence; but when a friend offers him the chance to return to the world of journalism, he gradually comes to suspect that he’s unearthed an extraordinary plot to derail the political process. Meanwhile, what is the agenda of the enigmatic Emily? She says she’s an insurance agent, but what is she really after? Even she doesn’t seem to know.
Frustratingly, Tom’s accident has blanked out vital parts of his memory, but as he strives to fill in the missing pieces, he starts to see the bigger picture – and it’s a frightening one of shadowy people intent on changing the course of history. The more he learns, the more determined they seem to be to keep him silent.
Never Going to Happen quickly proves as compelling as it is thought-provoking. It’s a whirlwind of a novel, plunging at breakneck speed through a series of surprises and reverses towards a conclusion that stuns Tom on a personal level, and shocks him in terms of what he now knows. Along the way, it sparkles with vibrant characters and dialogue, intrigue, suspense and romance.
If you like a fast-moving mystery drama that keeps you completely engrossed, you’ll love this. If you also enjoy an absorbing, contemporary what-if political thriller with an intelligent and thought-provoking slant, it’s tailor-made for you.
