About the Author

Dorothy Bruce has enjoyed the highs and lows of political campaigning. She has savoured her involvement with the restoration of a Victorian pier, the running of an annual festival, curating an exhibition on Alexander Reid, the Glasgow art dealer who was friendly with painter Vincent van Gogh, organisation of a one-off literary award commemorating Robin Jenkins, and a multi agency destination development project. A number of her short stories have been published, she has written restaurant reviews and one of her plays, See them rats, toured the Scottish Borders in late 2012 as part of a double bill. Dorothy writes a regular blog at - http://jingsandthings.wordpress.com www.twinlawpublishing.co.uk

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars 1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously enjoyable `what if?' modern political satire 25 Sept. 2013
By Eddie Nessuno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In an impressive debut novel, Dorothy Bruce transports the reader to Downsouth (sic, not `down south') where the Civil Servants have just staged a coup, no longer content to remain backroom boys in a country flapping about like a beached flounder after a series of weak coalition governments (remind you of somewhere?). The Anglish (as in `Angleterre') have ceded independence to Caledon (as in the Caledonian Society of Gastroenterology of which I was once a member). Here the politicos still run the country in a democratic fashion unlike the Powers That Be in Power City (think Big Ben). Water, publically owned, is a major boost to Caledon's economy. McTavish from Caledon and Ludmilla from Downsouth (the romance interest) are drawn into this scenario via the Caledon Water Project... and thence into a tale of political intrigue and shenanigans, murder and disappearances. Well-written and, in view of the contemporary political climate spanning the UK (and some of the issues are relevant outwith the `sceptred isle'), thought-provoking. There are some colourful characters, and, although the story has a comfortable ending, the reader is given space to wonder what happens next. The most chilling part (even more so than the murder of an innocent young woman) is the post-script: a true revelation of something involving England and Scotland in the nineteen eighties.
