Review of Plague of Dissent by Nic Taylor

A Plague of Dissent
by
Nic Taylor

A fast paced thriller, bursting with political intrigue and corruption. It paints a picture of the UK, where media companies hack into personal communications at will, in search of their next headline. Of politicians lining their pockets with falsified expense claims and crooked practices operate within the police force. Where government contracts can be bought and sold by those that have the Prime Ministers ear, that to, on sale for the right price; and where banks and corporations make millions at the expense of the man in the street.
A story of greed and corruption; where riots and civil unrest are turning the country upside down and a small group of men attempting to use this anarchy that is spreading across the country to further their own agendas.
Into this nightmare scenario are dragged a young man Adam, his girl friend Isobel and his brother Dan a professional rugby player and England wing forward. They are pursued by the faceless men who believe they are party to information that could compromise their mission and have two choices, to run or, to turn and fight for their lives.

This is not the type of book I usually read, but I enjoyed it.  It was a little slow for me to get into, but if you hang in there you're sure to enjoy the story too.  This is the first book I've read by this author but I'm sure it won't be the last.
 
I rate this book 3 1/2 stars
