A satirical political novel set in an offshore north-west European island
A coup. The Civil Service takes over government. Caledon, where a referendum vote favouring independence has been ignored, is given its autonomy, leaving Downsouth under a dictatorship.
In the wake of the coup Caledon born McTavish and Ludmilla, from an influential family in Downsouth, form a relationship whilst working together in Caledon where a colleague is mysteriously murdered.
They move to work for the Downsouth government. Despite Ludmilla’s assertions that life is good, it isn’t long before rumoured manipulations and peculiar happenings cause concern. Conflicting loyalties are exposed, questions raised about colleagues, what are they plotting — the re-annexation of Caledon or the restoration of democracy in Downsouth? When Ludmilla disappears with the King’s daughter the trail leads back to Caledon.
A political satire and a tale of two countries — are they really Scotland and England?
