THE PARTRIDGE KITE – Buy it here
A powerful blast blows away a bank wall and five innocent people – and 4,250,000 in gold bars disappear. A coolly-plotted assassination seems accidental, as a militant left-wing labor leader, on the eve of a paralyzing national strike, takes a fatal fall down the world’s longest escalator. Off the Yorkshire coast, an oil rig the size of a football field is firebombed and totally destroyed. The UK suffers blindly under a series of tragedies with no visible link. Then, a defector appears at Cannon Row police station and spells out the threat from the sinister group CORDON – a right-wing takeover of Great Britain is imminent. Only 12 days remain. The Prime Minister orders his intelligence chief to recruit a new agent. The assignment: stop CORDON, no one can be trusted. CORDON has penetrated every level. From its top secret files, the Special State operations department pulls a dossier on Tom McCullin. A case-hardened former Belfast sniper, veteran of many dirty campaigns, McCullin is a hard-drinking recluse with a talent for destruction. As he is led – and misled – to the truth by his own government, a small secret army is ready on the South Downs; vehicles stand poised to deal death to England’s ghettoes with lethal gas; and fascist rallies pack London meeting halls as CORDON prepares for a ruthless coup d’etat.
