|We Know What We Are|
'Great descriptions of people and power. Read it!' Jeremy Corbyn MP (Leader of the Labour Party)
When a woman takes on the vested interests in politics and football, a city is forced to take sides. We Know What We Are is a gritty contemporary political thriller, with a strong female protagonist who battles corruption, power and prejudice in a quest for a fairer society. It's set in a Midlands city.
A girl searches for her missing brother, a council leader fights to hold on to her principles and a chief executive battles to hold back the tide of cuts. Over them all looms a threatened football club and the sinister shadow of its chairman. As identities shift and allegiances are tested, how much will each of them risk to save the city, the club – and themselves?
The novel explores how our sense of ourselves affects our ability to make change, to determine the future for ourselves.
