‘The Pioneering. Paranoia. California Thriller.’ – Sunday Times.
A pacey thriller with threads of dark humour. Based on real events including the accidental deaths of twenty two British scientists all working on President Reagan’s ‘Star Wars’ missile defence shield.
A failed quarterback, failed husband and failed human being, finds redemption through the music of a failed songwriter – along with more than a little help from the new lady in his life. Along the way he stumbles across a Homeland Conspiracy that has been in place since the end of the Cold War.
When the drinking, smoking, womanising, central character, Morgan, receives a rejected demo tape, his friends start meeting with bizarre accidents.
Eventually it dawns,’ Somebody is out to get me.’ He runs to the California Desert, picking up the inevitable girl en route. The body count keeps rising and Morgan has no idea why.
The resolution is startling -The darkness of the central message is carried in the ripping yarn and the dichotomy between those who rule our lives and those who live by the rules is ruthlessly exposed. A roller-coaster of drama, excitement, pathos, love and violence – and at it’s heart the greatest Conspiracy since the Cold War ended.
