10 Days of Freedom
It is set in the year 2209, and the population of the world is now a staggering 5 billion.
11 men make an escape form a "Work Zone", previously known as a prison. Although the men were held as prisoners, they had committed no crime and had not had a trial. They were the result of a programme to genetically engineer worker humans, designed to undertake manual work for their supporters.
Over the years the 11 had been able to collect bits and pieces of information about the world outside the "Work Zone" until one day, they managed to escape from the Work Zone, escaping to the countrside just ot the south of Birmingham.
They are being trailed by guards from the Work Zone, senior government officials and a husband and wife team who are leading academics form Oxford University, experts in the field of psychoanalysis.
The fugitives cannot be allowed to remain at large. They must be stopped no matter the cost. Because the British public must never learn the truth about the Work Zones and what happens within them.
Can the 11 outwit the authorities? Can they evade their pursuers and continue to live free and outside the Work Zone?
What would happen if the public found out about the truth of the Work Zones? Because a lot more than the freedom of the 11 rests on this.
It is a though provoking novel which raises many interesting questions on ethics and morality.
It is published by The Book Guild at £8.99.
