Dirty Geese

Book one of the Kanha and Colby Thriller Series

When Chief Whip Esme Kanha learns of the sudden death of the Minister for Personal Information, she bitterly regrets missing his desperate calls the previous evening. Unconvinced by the verdict of suicide, and suspicious that corrupt colleagues played some part in the man’s death, she decides to investigate – but she must tread carefully in a near-future world dominated by technology, where ‘what can see watches, what can hear listens, and what can be followed is tracked’.

Meanwhile, Big Tech executive Henri Lauvaux arrives in London. His mission: to ensure the new minister, Harry Colbey, will not prove as problematic as the last. As the West inexorably slides towards an Orwellian ‘Big Brother’ future, Harry Colbey and Esme Kanha join forces in a deadly cat-and-mouse game against political corruption – at great cost to themselves.
