Description

In an oil-rich country terrorised by a tyrant known as The Great Uncle, war veteran and celebrated writer Alan Sheriff has a better life than most until his beautiful and beloved actress wife Sarah dies - and he is made an offer he can't refuse. He must write a great novel in three months - or else. If the writer no longer cares about his own life, he has friends. What follows is a terrifying trial as he battles with his conscience, Sarah's memory, a good woman who wants to rescue him, a dark secret - and the most important deadline of his life...Stark, terrifying and utterly compelling, THE TYRANT'S NOVEL is a gripping thriller and a chilling glimpse of an imaginary world that seems all too real.
