Synopsis:
Violent rebellion comes to London_s middle classes in the extraordinary new novel from the author of Cocaine Nights and Super-Cannes.When a bomb goes off at Heathrow it looks like just another random act of violence to psychologist David Markham. But then he discovers that his ex-wife Laura is among the victims. Acting on police suspicions, he starts to investigate London's fringe protest movements, falling in with a shadowy group based in the comfortable Thameside estate of Chelsea Marina.Led by a charismatic doctor, the group aims to rouse the docile middle classes to anger and violence, to free them from both the self-imposed burdens of civic responsibility and the trappings of a consumer society _ private schools, foreign nannies, health insurance and overpriced housing.Markham, seeking the truth behind Laura_s death, is swept up in a campaign that spirals rapidly out of control. Every certainty in his life is questioned as the cornerstones of middle England become targets and growing panic grips the capital _

Violent rebellion comes to London s middle classes in the extraordinary new novel from the author of Cocaine Nights and Super-Cannes. When a bomb explodes at Heathrow, it looks like just another random act of violence to psychologist David Markham. But when he discovers that his ex-wife is among the victims he is compelled to further investigate the mysterious and shocking circumstances surrounding her death. Acting on police suspicions he immerses himself in the strange world of London s fringe protest movements. A quiet rebellion against middle-class normality is taking place.
