It's the near future and a beleaguered UK Prime Minister resigns, making way for a surprise and triumphal return by his charismatic predecessor. The nation's mental 'well-being' is placed at the top of the political agenda and the party's rising star, Dr Greig Hynd, is catapulted into high office to lead the flagship policy. Meanwhile advertising executive, Calum Begg, has stumbled on mass communication techniques whose extraordinary results promise unlimited power to anyone ruthless enough to use them. One man will take that risk and another will sacrifice everything to try and stop him. Award-winning author, Christopher Wallace, uses his insider's knowledge of government advertising to create a wholly credible conspiracy, brilliantly satirising those who serve power and those who pursue it.

- viciously satirical. Wallace - uses his insider knowledge to take a delicious sideswipe - portraying a frighteningly plausible scenario of political and media manipulation." The Big Issue " - Killing the Messenger is very of the moment. Wallace creates a plausible conspiracy with all the farce, stress, power-chasing and scandal that is part and parcel of government." Gutter Magazine " - a timely political thriller. Wallace has written an engaging tale about New Labour's final days in government and an unscrupulous use of advertising and technology - Fast-paced and filled with more buzz words than an urban dictionary, Killing the Messenger explores the interrelations between mass manipulation and violence." Scottish Review of Books " - it would make uncomfortable reading for Mr Blair." Daily Mail
