by Peter Rowlands, writing as Anders Teller
How far might people go to secure the kind of political outcomes they want? That’s one of the themes of this thought-provoking, topical and engrossing mystery thriller. In it, writer Tom Anthony finds himself drawn reluctantly into a shadowy world of people determined to intervene in global events. And then there’s Emily – appealing but elusive. What is her agenda?
Jobless since a car accident that he barely remembers, Tom welcomes the task of writing a news article on Britain’s tortured departure from the European Union. Then his research suggests a bizarre link to his car crash. Maybe he’s on to something – but he soon finds there are people intent on preventing him from finding out what it’s all about.
His interest in Emily seems to offer a further clue, but quickly raises a barrier to his quest for the truth. Meanwhile, what is his girlfriend not telling him? Why is his former neighbour so hostile? Where do his loyalties lie?
As the perspective widens, Tom realises he’s upset people who are ruthless in their resolve to influence the course of history. A series of truly stunning shocks and surprises awaits him as the truth unfolds.
Whilst remaining true to its promise as a classic mystery, this engrossing story is also an absorbing political thriller, offering a compelling take on some of the key issues of our time.
Tom is discharged from hospital into a world of cancel culture, where nonconformity is stifled, and people who disagree with the winning side are treated as pariahs. His struggle to understand the forces ranged against him soon turns into a quest to discover which side he’s offended, and what his instincts are telling him.
Never Going to Happen is a mystery drama. You don’t need to know anything about politics to enjoy it. It’s packed with mystery, romance, suspense and excitement, and features clandestine groups operating outside the normal strictures of the law. The dramatic climax offers a nice twist on Brexit, but the big surprise at the end has nothing to do it.
“Great storytelling with pace and plenty of plot twists to keep the reader guessing...”
“Fascinating dramatic tale. Once I was into the story and array of characters it was a difficult novel to put down, so I didn’t. Excellent.”
“A fast moving novel sweeping you into many surprises... A contemporary political thriller which is very thought-provoking...”
“I did like the character of Emily. She brought some fun to the book. Good dialogue between Tom and her. “
“After finishing a series by Rowlands, I was ready for more. Fortunately this book with a different hero is available. Every bit as engaging and hard to put down.”
“Where this book truly shines is in the realism of the entire experience.”
