'Ted Allbeury without doubt ranks among the finest genre writers I've read' - Glenn Meade
The year is 1982. As politicians bicker, a neutral Britain's decline accelerates into anarchy. The Prime Minister accepts the Russian offer to 'help restore law and order'. Faced with a national breakdown he has no choice.
Millions collaborate. But, as Soviet troops take over Britain's streets, men like Harry Andrews and Jamie Boyle go underground. For them there is only one answer to the life-and-death question: Is freedom worth fighting for
A nation demoralised, a way of life obliterated: they said it could never happen...but there are flashes of resistance from a freedom loving few...
