Desolation Point

A novel by

'chillingly plausible' Gloucester Citizen

A whiteness glimmering just beneath the surface of the cloudy water, rolling in the current ... then a face emerged, eyes peering sightlessly.

All is not well with the Somerset Nuclear Electric power station at Desolation Point.

It is being picketed by a women's pressure group, who claim that exposure to radiation caused one of its employees to lose his infant son to leukaemia.

Then Michael Hempstead, a senior engineer at the station, becomes involved with Sarah Brierly, one of the group's organisers, and the problems begin to escalate.

A colleague of Michael's is found dead. Then there is a radiation leak. Accident or sabotage?

Something very sinister is going on at Desolation Point, and the stakes are sky high.

'Murder and sabotage at a nuclear power station as protesters gather at the gate and official nerves twang over a tarnished safety image' - Matthew Coady, Guardian
