Synopsis: A Plague of Dissent: A fast paced thriller, bursting with political intrigue and corruption. It paints a picture of the UK, where media companies hack into personnel communications at will, in search of their next headline. Of politicians lining their pockets with falsified expense claims and crooked practices operate within the police force. Where government contracts can be bought and sold by those that have the Prime Ministers ear; that to, also on sale for the right price; with banks and corporations making millions at the expense of the man in the street.
A story of greed and corruption; where riots and civil unrest are turning the country upside down and a small group of men attempting to use this anarchy that is spreading across the country to further their own agendas.
Into this nightmare scenario are dragged a young man Adam, his girl friend Isobel and his brother Dan. They are pursued by the faceless men who believe they are party to information that could comprise their mission and have two choices, to run or, to turn and fight for their lives.
I just love it when the first page of a book grabs me by the throat, gets my heart pumping and terrifies the hell out of me. That’s exactly what Nic Taylor did in A Plague of Dissent, and by page 3 we had our first dead body. Everything just went to hell in a handbasket from there.
Political corruption, mobsters and their minions, and a media hell-bent on destruction came into and out of this very strong story. It kept me constantly on my toes. One minute I thought I could trust a character and the next minute, I wasn’t quite so sure. The brothers, Dan and Adam gave me a serious case of hero-worship, despite the fact that I was afraid they were in further over their heads than they imagined. This tale could easily have been ripped from the current news.
Taylor has delivered a whopping good tale that kept me in suspense right up to the end. His masterful prose and intimate knowledge of crime fighting in the UK is on par with Ian Fleming. Every scene is so well described, throughout, that I felt like I was right there. It’s a consummate storyteller that he is!
I cannot recommend this book too highly. If you’re a fan of breathtaking thrillers, pick up Nic Taylor’s A Plague of Dissent today!
Ever wonder when you watch the news if you are being told the truth? Have you tried to read between the lines when listening to the government, big business- vested interest?
Well, wonder no more! Intrigue and the dark side, with a truly memorable ending- a thriller well worth picking!! Buy it now- you’ll love it.

This is allegedly a work of fiction, but one only has to be aware of current news for this story to feel true. And that adds further thrill to an already exhilarating thriller. Nic Taylor has encapsulated the nation’s mistrust of the Government, media and big companies and written a book that is fast paced and will keep the reader on the edge of their seat.
