The Book

Elektra, betrayed by those she loves, is the sole survivor of a terror attack. But why? Moving between Bristol’s inner city and the Middle East, hope and catastrophe lie hidden in the ghostly film of a boy preacher, filmed by Elektra as she flees a disastrous, last-ditch exhibition of her artwork. She escapes to seek fame on a controversial gameshow, where fanatical forces target her ambitions. In a world of rage and broken promises, faith, love and identity are put to the test in this punchy, questioning, literary thriller.
