British democracy is on the ropes. Two men risk everything A ruthless assassin - and the King of England Weakened by financial meltdown, crime and terror, Britain is the target of predatory forces set on installing a totalitarian regime under the guise of restoring law and order. Their vehicle is an extreme populist party that leverages limitless funding from its foreign sponsor into political influence. The Longbows are about to force an early election that will bring its murderous leadership to power. Then, like the Nazis in 1933, they will swiftly pervert or dismantle the structures of democracy, and rule by might. Guided by his sense of ultimate duty to the nation, the King defies constitutional taboos and plunges into the murky world of deniable operations. Once battle is joined, there can be turning back - and the consequences will be tumultuous.
