Synopsis: What if you knew men, women and children were being slaughtered but had to cover it up?’
Fake news. Alternative facts. Truth, lies, damn lies and statistics. Just who are we to believe? In this near-future dystopian thriller, that will be United Nations Police “moderators”.
Thirty year old UNPOL officer Richard Warren has been embedded with the BBC and not seeing eye-to-eye with journalist Sarah Dyer is just the start of his problems. News of an Ebola pandemic is being withheld, and when it’s discovered Sarah’s artistic savant brother is involved, Richard’s determination to get to the truth takes an unexpected turn. But what if the truth must never be known?
And Richard thought Sarah was a challenge. The very concept of right and wrong is about to be tested and in a way that’s going to make fake news look like quality journalism.
This one was bizarrely fascinating. Encompassing all manner of things styled into one narrative was impressive, yet frustrating to keep up with at the same time. Here’s where having a great narrator comes in. Jonathan Keeble is a first rate narrator who knows how to bring a story to life. He makes it interesting enough to follow and lead you to the final conclusion. I was impressed with his ranges of accents along with the narrative voice. Impressive! The American accents were respectable, English voices superb, and the west African accent was exceptional.

He commanded an operational unit that experimented in new military capabilities classified at the highest level (Top Secret Strap 3) and it is this that forms the basis of his novels. Although semi-autobiographical, for national security and personal liberty reasons, the events and individuals portrayed have to be fiction but are still nonetheless in keeping with his experiences.
