The Loyal Servant (Free Kindle Book)
A brilliant British political thriller!
Imagine if it happened to you. You’re a dedicated mom and loyal government employee who’s working after hours at the office, trying to avoid the next round of lay-offs, when you find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
That’s exactly what happens to Caroline Barber when she discovers the dead body of high-flying politician, Martin Fox, slumped over his desk at the Education Department. All the evidence seems to point to suicide, but Caroline is convinced Martin Fox has been killed. Unable to trust the information coming from the police, the press or her superiors, she embarks on a dangerous crusade to uncover the real reason he had to die.
Caroline’s world is turned upside down, all the things she was sure about before thrown into doubt. The line between right and wrong, good and bad, and honesty and deception starts to blur. An ordinary woman forced into extraordinary circumstances, she finds herself doing things she would never have imagined possible. The scandal she discovers could be powerful enough to bring down the government. But will she get the chance to blow the whistle before her enemies silence her permanently?
