Seagulls over Westminster by Richard Wade

27249aa0-f36e-49f8-9311-8d2982d60b75

A political thriller for our time, with a strand of gentle humour woven through it, making this intriguing story into an entertaining page turner.

 Its 2024. Popular TV chat show host, and former MP, Bradley Deakin is wanted by the Opposition Party of the day to lead them back to power, breaking the chain of endless hung parliaments and uninspiring political leaders. They just need to get him elected first.

 An opportunity for a by-election arises in Brighton where retired bank manager, Harvey Britten, is enjoying life with the three things he loves most - his family, the city of his birth and his beloved football team, Brighton and Hove Albion (known locally as The Seagulls). Harvey strongly objects to a big shot candidate like Deakin being parachuted into his city and is reluctantly persuaded to stand against him as a protest candidate. But only in the knowledge that he won’t actually win!

The exciting David and Goliath contest that follows is soon engulfed in scandal, conspiracy theories and media manipulation where all the candidates discover they have much more at stake than just who will win the by-election.

Independently published on Amazon Kindle and Paperback.
