Book Description
Has the House of Windsor finally come to an end? Neil Phillips’ novel is set in the future about a web of intrigue over the continued existence of the Royal household. The Queen suddenly abdicates in favour of her grandson, but the Government of the day believes the time has come to end a thousand years of monarchist rule. The Prime Minister, a staunch republican, is summoned to Buckingham Palace, but just as he is delivering a short press conference outside No 10 Downing Street he is assassinated. A single shot ends his life but begins a struggle between the Royalists and the Republicans. Alan Chandler, an MI5 officer, is tasked with discovering who has killed who, why, and with whose authority. Was it the Royalists within the Government or the House of Windsor trying to maintain its iron grip on the Wealth of the Nation?
