About this item
Five months after Scotland's Independence Referendum, freelance journalist Willie Morton discovers he has a look-alike who works for pro-Union group, GB13 who aim to prevent Scotland leaving the Union. Morton wants to discover how far they are willing to go to frustrate democracy. What are the group's connections with MI5 and is the Prime Minister involved?
It's a game of high stakes and soon Morton is on the run in the Palace of Westminster up into the dusty dereliction of the roof space. He wants to confront the reclusive leader of GB13, whisky magnate Lord Craile, in his remote mansion on Mull and ask him one question - Why?
But some questions are too incendiary, too dangerous... The Union is sacrosanct, greater, it seems, than democracy itself and Morton is a threat to it, their top target.
Andrew Scott's pacy political thrillers explore the uncertain and ambiguous terrain between a declining Britain and an emerging Scotland, in fast-moving novels that combine and insider's insight with all-too-believable scenarios, set in contemporary Scotland, England and Europe.
