When violence, lawlessness and hopelessness have turned the inner cities into no go areas made up of ghettos where ruthless criminals rule the streets while facing no consequences for their actions, a new and controversial government is elected, crime rates are dropping and control is being reinstated. But, what is going on behind the walls of the inaccessible, new generation holding centres, and who is behind the masks of the enforcers of proposition 63, R-2020, the proposition that forms the governments ideology of ‘the perfect society’. The burning question is, have the people failed society or, has society failed the people? In this his second novel, Steven Lytton, the author of 'Smoke Without Fire' and ‘It’s Because I Love You’ offers this fast moving and thought provoking novel which suggests a string of possibilities for better or worse, living under a dictatorship, that finds its way to power using the age old strategies of the psychological Trojan horse and propeganda.
We are not a far right party, we are a people party.
A fantastic read, Farfetched? Maybe not!
I read this book on the back of the authors first novel "Some Without Fire" which I had thoroughly enjoyed, although a complete departure I found this to be equally excellent reading. I started out thinking that the ficticious political body was a good thing but as the story progressed I realised that the implications were far further reaching. A highly recommended read
